As the smallest and sleekest of the javelins, the Interceptor is favored by Corvus’ long-range scouts, infiltrators, and assassins. But while it may not be the mightiest javelin in your arsenal, its agility and evasion are unmatched, and it has more than enough power to bring the fight to anyone foolish enough to underestimate it.
Always Two Steps Ahead
The Interceptor javelin might not have the imposing silhouette of the Colossus, but it still knows how to pack a punch. The Interceptor excels at getting in close to inflict damage and weaken its enemies, then dashing away before they can react. With powerful blades and a full suite of devastating abilities, the Interceptor is both incredibly self-reliant and an excellent supporting teammate.
NOTE: As the game is still in development, all game features and ability names may be subject to change and there will be more to share. We’ll update as necessary.
Interceptor Javelin Weaponry
Each javelin may have two weapons for their loadout, and can change them (along with the rest of their loadout) between missions. The Interceptor javelin is capable of wielding every weapon type except for Heavy Weapons (which can only be used by the Colossus javelin).
Interceptor Javelin Exosuit Melee Ability
Every javelin has an innate melee ability which can be used to deal damage to targets at very close range. This ability does not need to be earned, nor can it be changed.
Double-Bladed Daggers: The Interceptor uses a pair of double-bladed daggers to deliver a multi-hit flurry of slashes, dealing damage in a chain of powerful attacks that can be continued indefinitely.
Interceptor Javelin Exosuit Technique Gear
The Interceptor javelin uses a variety of gear to perform devastating techniques on the battlefield. Gear is picked up as loot during missions, and can be equipped and swapped out between missions. Lancers can equip three gear in their loadout, one from each of the sections here.
Interceptor Javelin Assault Systems
Seeker Glaive: Throws out a razor-sharp projectile that seeks out the nearest target.
Acid Bomb: Tosses a grenade which explodes, splashing all nearby enemies with acid.
Cryo Glaive: Launches out a projectile that locks on to a nearby target and freezes it on impact.
Cluster Mine: Throws out a group of mines onto a targeted area which explode on contact with an enemy.
Spark Dash: Dashes forward, leaving behind a trail of electricity that damages enemies.
Interceptor Javelin Strike Systems
Star Strike: Charges an enemy with energy which explodes after a delay. The explosion deals increased damage if the target is destroyed before the full delay.
Plasma Star: Tosses a plasma-empowered shuriken at a single target, effective at long range.
Nova Strike: Sends out a projection of the Interceptor which will attack enemies it comes in contact with.
Tempest Strike: A devastating single-target attack that can stun smaller enemies.
Corrosive Spray: Sprays out a jet of corrosive acid that damages all enemies hit.
Interceptor Javelin Support Systems
Target Beacon: Marks a target for increased damage which will switch to another enemy if the marked target is destroyed.
Rally Cry: Removes status effects from all nearby allies.
Interceptor Javelin Ultimate Ability
Assassin’s Blades: Lancers can deploy a special ultimate ability that displays the true strength of their javelin exosuit. The Interceptor becomes supercharged, arming its Assassin’s Blades and carving through enemies at high speed.
With its lightning agility and powerful abilities, the Interceptor is able to turn overwhelming odds into certain victory. The Interceptor makes up for its scant armor as a true terror on the battlefield and an excellent addition to your javelin arsenal. Learn more in our suit guides on the Ranger, Colossus, and Storm javelin exosuits for details as we suit up to fulfill the call of the Freelancers in Anthem.
