Introducing the Interceptor

The Interceptor is arguably the fastest javelin in the game. Quick and agile, the Interceptor doesn't hesitate to dive into the fray in order to sow chaos and confusion among its enemies. The Interceptor has a particularly aggressive and nervous unique gameplay geared around speed and melee combat. The interceptor however has the lowest firepower compared to other javelins but compensates for this weakness with its mobility and speed.

The Interceptor can be equipped with all weapons (except Heavy Weapons exclusively reserved for the Colossus) however, unlike other Javelins, it can only have one weapon.


Interceptor Skills

Like all javelins, the interceptor has the option of equipping components that boost its stats and skills.

Introducing Interceptor Skills

1 - The assault system

The assault system has the advantage of being able to be adapted to any situation, so you can use different modules depending on the way you play or the mission you are going to carry out. 

→ Tracking Glaive: Throw a homing sword.

→ Venom bombs: Throws a grenade that deals acid damage to all nearby enemies.

→ Cryo Glaive: Targets up to two nearby enemies who will freeze on impact.

→ Fragmentation mine: Launches a salvo of mines at the targeted area.

→ Lightning Rush: Rush forward leaving a dangerous flow of electricity behind you.

2 - The striking system

The interceptor also uses a striking system, this system offers a wide range of melee skills as fast as they are deadly which will probably require a little practice before being completely mastered. The Interceptor's strike system is undoubtedly its biggest asset but also its biggest weakness as it will force players to expose themselves.

→ Detonating Strike: A melee attack that charges the enemy with electrical energy. If he dies, the enemy explodes dealing damage around him.

Plasma star: Throw a Plasma Charged Ninja Star at a single target. Effective at long distance.

→ Spectral Strike: Generates a projection from the interceptor to attack your enemies.

Storm Strike: A powerful melee attack that deals heavy physical damage.

→ Venom Spray: Projects a corrosive acid that deals damage to all enemies hit.

3 - Melee attack

The interceptor, although not very resistant, has several melee attacks other than those present in its various combat systems. 

→ Double blades: The Interceptor is equipped with two dual blades which it uses to inflict massive damage by performing multiple acrobatic attacks in a series.

4 - Support equipment

In addition to these many offensive skills, the Interceptor also has so-called support skills, which will protect you (you and your allies) or increase the damage suffered by a target.

Target tag: Marks an enemy to allow your allies to deal increased damage to them.

 Rallying cry: Dispel harmful effects inflicted on your entire team.


The ultimate skill

In addition to their basic skills, javelins also have an ultimate skill. As far as the interceptor is concerned, the ultimate skill is none other than a powerful chain of melee attacks with powerful assassin blades which will allow players to pass through enemies while inflicting significant damage.
