Vanquishers are a sub-unit of regular Hive Knights that are armed with a Cleaver and a Hive Shield. They can be seen in several areas of the Hellas Basin[1], and rarely in Gambit.

Gameplay[edit]

Vanquishers function like the Cabal Phalanx unit, except they are restricted to melee combat with their Cleavers and their shields cannot expand. However, when using their shield to block attacks, they cannot be staggered, allowing them to keep pressing the attack and rush down all Guardians in their path. Their Cleavers are capable of killing Guardians in only a handful of swipes, forcing their opponents to keep their distance, and they typically fight alongside other Vanquishers to maximize their assault. The quickest way to dispose of a charging Vanquisher is to destroy their shield, fully opening them to incoming damage.

Trivia[edit]

  • When their shields are receiving damage, green cracks can be seen, signifying how close it is to shattering.
  • Without their shields, Vanquishers function just like a Knight.
