AC Castor

AC Castor

In-Game InformationEdit

A prudent pilot, his goal is to get behind his foe thereby gaining the upper hand. Unfortunately, this tactic requires mobility and conflicts with his preference for tread-based leg parts. Unwilling to change, he struggles to advance.


Back Breaker's AC is fairly easy to fight against. He tends to rely on the damage output from his pulse cannons but forgets to remain mobile while doing so. At closer ranges he will briefly fly up to gain momentum while firing with his rifle.

Back Breaker can be taken down fairly quickly by firing with a mid-long range weapon as he strafe-fires. Boost in brief bursts to avoid damage. Even with the high amount of AP, he should be heavily damaged by the time he manages to close in on you.



The name Castor refers to the second brightest star in the constellation Gemini and one of the brightest stars in the night sky
