Strategy[edit]

General[edit]

  • Countermeasures allows the de-capture Power Node captured by Atriox more longer than other leaders, except for Leaders that possesses a Leader Power to speeds it up (Such as Captain Cutter's UNSC Raid or Let 'Volir's Banished Raid)
  • Time the leader power correctly, as Unbreakable and Atriox's Bulwark combination can be proven very lethal against all units.
    • Note that Isabel's Ghost In the Machine can nullify this combination, as she can snatch all of your armored units inside Bulwark's area.
  • Dying Breath is a very useful Leader Power as your units can draw the aggro from the enemy unit as much as you could without worrying about your other units for 4 seconds. As long as the dying unit keeps drawing fire, it can give the player a good chance to obliterate the attackers with less opposition.
  • While in description Atriox's main leader power serve for defensive purposes, some player may prefer Atriox to take an offensive role due to its privilege of having more invulnerable leader powers than other Banished Leaders.

Allies[edit]

  • Have a player using Atriox to seize the Power or Control Node. It's Countermeasures can be useful to bid time.
  • Atriox can utilize his leader power to act as a spearhead to begin the firefight, practically with Unbreakable and Dying Breath Leader Power.
    • Any units that were dying under Dying Breath will be instantly killed albeit it's healed by your allies' healing units or leader power.
  • Eradication will be very useful if you place it right in the middle of the enemy group.

Enemies[edit]

  • Strong armor was required to fight him head on.
    • Jerome's Mastodon with maximum upgrade and Spartan Morale and Restoration Drones can resist Eradication.
  • Pull out as soon as one of the units is affected by Dying Breath as shifting aggro will be very difficult during firefight.
