Tips[edit | edit source]

  • When using these, remember that you must be really close and therefore expect yourself to be vulnerable to staggers, knockdowns knockbacks, and enemy fire.
  • Occasionally, you may find it hard to hit an enemy even if they are directly in front of you. This may be a small mesh problem associated with the weapon's short range.
  • Using Mod TT 20px.pngReach can effectively aid in hitting targets from slightly further away.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • A good combo is to use the jump slide kick (sprint and then jump and crouch) at an enemy, which will knock them over, allowing you to use the ground finisher.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • The inventory view of Ankyros uses the same icon as PrimeAnkyros.png Ankyros Prime.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Ankyros was released on April 19, 2013 with Update 7.8.
  • One of the phased skins released during the Steam Winter Sale of 2013 was for the Ankyros. This was the rarest one available, with only 10 known copies crafted.
  • The Ankyros appears to take inspiration from a concept design of the Colossus from Dark Sector, as seen in the picture here.
