On this page of the Anthem game guide, you will find the description of the Colossus class. The Colossus is one of the four main classes of Javelins (exosuits). From our description, you will be able to learn about the general applications of the Colossus class and about the elements of this suit that make it stand out from the rest of the classes.
The description of the Colossus class is a work in progress. This section will be expanded in the near future to also include suggested builds for this particular class.
Who is the Colossus class for?
The Colossus class is the equivalent of a tank, that can draw the attention of nearby enemies and withstand a lot of pressure due to high durability and endurance.
- While playing the Colossus you can rely not just on durable armour, but also superior weaponry. This class can utilize heavy ordnance which is otherwise unavailable to any of the other classes.
- The Colossus excels at attacking large groups of enemies, be it by using the heavy weaponry mentioned previously, or by making use of its various abilities.
- The Colossus class is, for obvious reasons, the least mobile class and is far behind the other Javelins in this respect. Unlike in the case of other classes, you cannot use dodges at all. Instead, your defensive tactics require you to use a shield, which is a piece of equipment that every Colossus has.
What abilities does the Colossus class have?
The first category of abilities is connected to the ordnance launcher. Firing this launcher can cause various types of havoc amongst enemies, e.g. the mortar can strike at a huge area of the map, bombard a smaller area and deal larger amounts of damage, or electrocute enemies hit with massive energy discharges.
The second category of abilities is connected to the heavy assault launcher. Once again you will have a wide selection of available attacks, and instead of executing a standard missile barrage, you can rely on, e.g. attacks which deal fire damage or knock enemies down.
The last category of abilities is the support gear. Depending on the loadout of your suit, the Colossus can either taunt nearby enemies while simultaneously reducing their defensive capabilities, or increase the damage resistance of nearby team members.
The ultimate ability of the Colossus class is the Siege Cannon. All enemies hit by this massive area of effect skill take substantial amounts of damage and are exposed to combo attacks.
