Aksor, Archon Priest[1] is a Fallen Archon of the House of Wolves and former servant of Kaliks Prime, located at Ishtar Sink, Venus.

Biography

Aksor was responsible for numerous campaigns against both Awoken enclaves and Human settlements. He is a boss of the Winter's Run strike mission. He was imprisoned in the Prison of Elders in the Reef, but the House of Winter used Taniks to release him, and tried to restore his ether.[2] He comes out of his capsule to attack Guardians.[3]

Gameplay

Aksor, Archon Priest has two main abilities consistent with other known Fallen Archons: Teleportation and an Ultra Smash. He often teleports between locations in order to get a clear shot at targets or disrupt a shooter's line of sight. He can cover a great distance with this ability. When combatants close within melee range, he employs a devastating area of effect stomp attack similar to House of Devils Archon, Riksis. He uses this attack fairly often as he normally attempts to corner Guardians into an area where they cannot run. For ranged combat, he uses a Shrapnel Launcher. He fires this weapon at an incredibly fast rate, comparable to the MIDA Multi-Tool, allowing him to take down Guardians quickly so he can switch to his next target.

It is, however, possible to stunlock Aksor with sustained headshots, allowing the player to keep him pinned down and deal as much damage as possible. Repeated headshots can melt his health within minutes.

Trivia

  • Aksor is presumably a member of the House of Wolves based on his lore, but his killcam shows no affiliation to any house (although his robes and color scheme suggest he is a member of the House of Kings and strangely around his cell there are numerous King banners instead of Winter ones).
  • In the Taken version of the Winter's Run strike, Aksor is replaced as the Strike's boss by Nixis, Hunger of Oryx.
