EVERYTHING A FREELANCER NEEDS TO KNOW!


Titan

Ancient%2BAsh%2BTitan.jpg

Titans are a major force, and a force to be reckoned with! Once a rare creature, titans have been continuously coming out of the Heart of Rage over the past few years, and so we’ve gotten to know more about them than ever before. Titans reproduce by growing an “offshoot,” a smaller copy that just breaks off and walks away. But smaller doesn’t mean less dangerous! If you happen to come across one, you may be lucky enough to catch it in a bad mood and see it shoot energy from its chest! What puts a titan in a bad mood? Just about everything! Truly unforgettable!

Creature - Elementals.jpg

Elementals are commonly found around Shaper energy phenomena. Ash Elementals purse nearby targets and sacrifice themselves with an area-of-effect self detonation in order to deal maximum damage.

Weak Points:

N/A (Generally weak)

Attack Type:

Kamikaze Charge & Detonation


Swarm Tyrant

anthem_shooting_boss_3840.jpg

The Swarm tyrant is a type of enemy encountered in Anthem.

It has the ability to summon soldiers. It reproduces by laying eggs. Sacs are located on its back; these are its weak points. Attacking the sacs will cause bonus damage. It is deadly at close range, but can also fire webs at range.

Weak Points:

Bulbous Sacs on Back

Attack Type:

Melee Attack (Close Range), Pounce Attack (Long Range), Webbing, Acid Spit


Ursix

Ursix.jpg

Now here’s a glorious predator! Humongous and highly aggressive, the ursix will stop at nothing to put you on the menu. One hit from their massive arms can turn your javelin into scrap metal, and one bite from their enormous jaws will pop you out of your armor like a nut from a shell. I advise watching the ursix from a safe height, and if you’re really lucky, the ursix might hurl boulders at you. What a site to behold!

Weak Points:

Head

Attack Type:

Melee, Rock Toss, Long Distance Pounce


Wyvern

There are things that will kill you for food or self-defense. Then there’s these elemental terrors, that kill you to appease their own malicious sense of humor. Not only will they rain fire from above, but they will sneak behind you and then rain fire from above. Luckily, you can listen to their distinctive shriek and take cover. If you can find cover. What if you don’t find cover? What if you’re all alone with no hope of rescue? My professional advice is: just stay home in the first place. There are so many better things to do.

Weak Points:

Head

Attack Type:

Ranged Fire Blast


Brute

Brute.jpg

Brutes are bipedal monsters that roam the earth. They’re not as common as come of the other wildlife, but can pose a threat to Freelancers, especially when they’re up close as they lunge forward with poncing claw attacks. They aren’t particularly dangerous from range, so they can be dealt with using conventional firearms.

Weak Points:

Head

Attack Type:

Lunging Claw Strikes


Anrisaur

Anrisaur+%28Cortex%29.jpg

The predators of Bastion have adapted to our world in interesting ways, none more astounding than the Anrisaur. This cave dweller’s saliva creates an electromagnetic field that can disable flashlights and destroy flares, often leaving humans stumbling around in the dark. It takes a slow defensive approach to stalking prey, keeping its distance but using its spiked tongue to last out with great force from far away. Handy for taking grabbits, gazicks, and the occasional lost lancer by surprise. You should be so lucky!

Weak Points:

Legs, Rear

Attack Type:

Pounce, Projectile Spit


Wolven

Wolven.JPG

Imagine gnashing teeth coming at you over and over again in quick succession. You raise your weapon to defend yourself but another beast has come at you from behind. The pack closes in, and you pray to the Shapers that your javelin has cooled down enough to fly up out of the nightmare. But they’re everywhere. Wolven… wolven in the dark.

- From A Guide To Living Things That Will Kill You by Timon Batrok

Weak Points:

Head

Attack Type:

Melee Bites, Ranged Spit


Skorpion

Skorpions.jpg

This six-legged killing machine is a truly fascinating predator! Skorpions are careful not to hatch from their eggs until they sense that food is near. These creatures have a highly corrosive blood and two stingers that can shoot acid at prey, damaging even the thickest of javelin armor. This acid is actually pre-digested food for the skorpion, who is willing to share a meal with their siblings - who may or may not be burrowing underground, plotting a surprise attack.

Weak Points:

Head, Bulbous Sac (Workers)

Attack Type:

Melee Bites, Acid Explosion (Workers Only)


TESILAR

Creature - Tesilar.jpg

While “Tessi the Tesilar” is a favorite child’s toy, real tesilars are not so snuggly. Anyone getting too close to a tesilar should prepare to be electrocuted. And by too close, I mean in the general vicinity. Most animals are smart enough to avoid the tesilar, except of course wolven, which will still try to eat them, even after they’ve been zapped. Which is terrifying. If wolven aren’t afraid of the tesilar’s electromagnetic field, they probably won’t be afraid of anything a javelin can do. I hate wolven.

Weak Points:

N/A

Attack Type:

Shock Pulse


Korox

Korox.jpg

Speaking of grazing, don’t let this beautifully colored herbivore fool you! While they’d like nothing better than to spend their day eating three times their weight in plants, they spook easily. And when they spook, the charge! Nothing knocks the wind out of you like a head butt from a wild korox, let me tell you!

- From Bastion’s Amazing Animals! by Venwick Crok

Weak Points:

N/A

Attack Type:

Melee Trample


Grabbit

Grabbits.JPG

I will begin this guide with a short examination of the seemingly harmless grabbit. My cousin had a pet grabbit once, and contrary to legend, it didn’t steal shards and hoard treasure. My cousin liked to dress it up like a baby and coo at it, and when I expressed my concern, she said the grabbit liked it. Maybe. Or maybe it just put up with my cousin because it hoped she’d die soon and it could have a nice tasty dinner.
