Tips[edit | edit source]

  • When using these, remember that you must be really close and therefore expect yourself to be vulnerable to 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.

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.

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.
