Deathtongue Choristers are specialized Major Acolytes of Xivu Arath's Horde, charged with bolstering her forces and weakening her foes.[1][2]

Gameplay[edit]

Deathtongue Choristers are a fundamental part of Heist Battlegrounds, as well as the Hierarchy Mission. Choristers look like normal Major Hive, but are highlighted by a glow. When a Deathtongue Chorister appears, the message "A Deathtongue moves to channel Xivu Arath's battlesong". The Acolyte has a large amount of health, and will rush towards a nearby Totem, which will begin charging as soon as it is close. If the Totem fully charges, the message "XIVU'S BATTLE HYMN SURGES WITH YOUR PULSE, THERE IS ONLY WAR" will be displayed, accompanied by a loud hum. The player's screen will be obstructed with a green fog at its sides, and they will be unable to use Abilities. Meanwile, all of their enemies will be charged with Overshields, and become more aggressive. Killing the Chorister will end the player's suppression, though any remaining Overshield will still be active on enemies.

If the Chorister is killed before it can activate the Battlesong, the message "A Chorister falls; Xivu's Battlesong remains silent" will be displayed. This will also progress a Triumph.
