In-Game Information[]

A rather unusual character, this Raven is afraid of heights, and it is only when he's piloting an AC that the fear is suppressed. Once strapped in, he takes to the skies and is a skilled aerial combatant. Piloting techniques makes up for his AC's shortcomings.

Strategy[]

Pylon will often rely on jetting into the air and using his extension boosters to maneuver towards you, while shooting his laser rifle or rockets. Although somewhat competent in the use of his extension boosters, his mobility is astonishingly poor, due to his choice of boosters. Additionally, his AC lacks adequate durability and AP needed to survive long fights. For this reason, Pylon is vulnerable to punishment even with his constant flying and jetting about. His use of the laser rifle is just average, and his rocket aiming is quite poor. Make use of these weaknesses and whittle him down with weapons of your own, he will go down quickly.
