Unstoppable Taken Phalanxes are former elite Cabal linemen that were Taken, then granted enhanced durability and stamina by the Darkness.

Gameplay[edit]

Like their Minor counterparts, the Unstoppable Taken Phalanx will stay near the middle of the carnage, blocking off shots from enemies. When it sees an opening, it will run in, firing its Slug Rifle at high speed, and stopping close to its target to deliver a concussive blast from their shield. Though the blast takes a little bit longer to charge up, it unleashes a more violent blast, dealing more damage and sending opponents flying farther. Another notable trait about the Phalanx is their durability and immunity to staggering; a trait in which they will relentlessly use to their advantage to close in on an opponent. To counter the Phalanx's resilience, the Guardians should utilize Anti-Unstoppable effects, from the Seasonal Artifact or other gear, to stagger the Phalanx and temporarily remove its damage reduction. Make sure to stun this enemy in an advantageous location, as even limping, its shield arm can still protect most of its body.
