TORUS NEXT model that appears in ACFA.
Following in a similar vein to Akva Vit's Linstant and later Madness models, the Argyros is designed specifically for increasing Kojima efficiency and effectiveness. Its specialty is in defense, as noted by its high PA rectification and heavy armor, and is capable of taking high levels of damage which would reduce most NEXTs to ashes. The Argyros model also has a special affinity to Kojima weapons as well as a unique Kojima Overboost. Despite its size, the Argyros manages to maintain respectable mobility using high powered boosters based on blueprints from the Rayleonard engineers in Akvavit. The only known user of the Argyros is ORCA member Neo Nidus. It is noted that the Argyros incorporates Sol Dios technology as its method of Overboost as well as a similar, much smaller unit as Back Booster. Even though it is catagorized as a heavy weight unit, the argyros legs dont provide as much firing stability as you may think, meaning that if it is equiped with high recoil weapons (BFF sniper cannons in perticular) the entire NEXT will be knocked back as a result of the recoil.
All aspects counted, it is a powerful unit with mobility suiting a middleweight and defenses enough to get anyone attacking it classified as a lunatic. While having poor overall stability, it is highly compatible with EN weaponry and has arm mobility and firing stability to handle heavier weapons such as HI-lasers, plasma cannons and solid shot bazookas. Its main flaw is the generator, while having stunning KP output, a lot of EN output has been sacrified for EN storage, meaning prolonged combat at high speed is nearly impossible with a loadout of EN weapons alone. It is recommended that players selecting this model try to keep the weapon EN drain low.
ARGYROS arms have very high ballistic defense due to their look alike shield arms desiged. This makes ARGYROS arms perfectly suited for ballistic defense when fighting in intense missions with ballistic projectile weapons.
- HYDOR-ARGYROS - Equiped with Kojima cannon arms, when charged up it is capable of destroying most NEXTs. Its only downside is its severely limited ammunition (only 5 shots, 2 for each arm.)
