The Lynx is a Corpus Field Boss. It is encountered in Orokin Sabotage (The Archwing or Marduk) where Corpus are the dominant enemy, guarding a Void Key necessary to close the Void Portal. It is also encountered in Grineer Spy, either purchased or stolen from the Corpus, detailing as one of the Spy room's centerpiece and becomes active if the room's alarm was tripped. It can also appear in Clem's weekly Survival mission in Corpus-controlled environments after five minutes.
The Lynx is invulnerable to damage until the Lynx Ospreys orbiting it are destroyed. The explosion of the drones can be used to damage the Lynx's shields.
Other than dealing damage while carefully managing against its summoned Lynx Turrets, there is little in the way of strategy to the overall battle.
- Lynx is a genus for the species of medium-sized cats, larger than housecats but smaller than the big cats of the genus Panthera such as lions and tigers.
- The Lynx as a whole is a call back to the Hyena Pack prior to their revamp in Update 12.0 (2014-02-05), which was essentially a single, scaled-down Jackal rather than a pack of uniquely designed machines.
- The Lynx's appearance in Grineer Spy missions is another reference to an earlier build of the game, where an inert Jackal can be seen suspended from the ceiling of one Spy 1.0 room layout.
- When a player kills The Lynx, in their profile may appear that they have killed the Hyena Pack.
