Arena AC2 Rank 37 Pollux profile 1

Pollux is a Raven in Armored Core 2. His rank is #37 in the Arena.

Information[]

Youngest of two brothers famous in the Arena. Having been compared to his older brother all his life, he's become extremely competitive. He hates his older brother.

AC Cosmic Star[]

Cosmic Star is a lightweight two-legged AC equipped with an anti missile extension, a small rocket launcher, a small missile launcher, a hand gun and an overboost core.

Strategy[]

Pollux is more annoying than truly dangerous. Being a bipedal AC, he tends to take to the air quite a bit whilst firing at the player with his missile launcher and handgun. His rocket launcher is a complete non-issue for anyone with any sort of dodging capabilities. He tends to stay away from the player as much as he can. It's best to bring anti missile extensions into the battle to deal with his slightly more dangerous missiles. For getting in damage, rapid fire weapons such as machine guns are very effective. Missile launching back weapons can be somewhat beneficial, but he has anti missile extensions as well. Overall, he's fast, mobile and annoying, but not truly dangerous.

Amusingly, due to his tendency to move away from the player, it is very possible for Pollux to throw himself out of bounds if the player keeps an aggressive assault against him. This can be an amusing way to defeat him, but don't really count on it happening.

Trivia[]

  • Castor's name, as well as his brother Pollux's, is a probable reference to Greek mythology. Castor and Pollux were twin brothers in Greek mythology known as the Dioskouri. Castor was the mortal son of Tyndareus, king of Sparta in his time, and Pollux was one of the divine sons of Zeus, the Greek God of Gods. Also unlike the AC2 counterparts, it is believed that Castor and Pollux shared brotherly love; when Castor was killed, Pollux asked Zeus to allow Castor and Pollux to share Pollux's immortality, and thus, Zeus transformed them into the constellation Gemini.
    • Another possibility of reference, albeit unlikely, is the John Woo movie Face/Off, where the main antagonist Castor Troy has a brother named Pollux. However, unlike their AC2 counterparts, Castor and Pollux show a great deal of brotherly love towards each other.
