Glyphid Oppressor

From Deep Rock Galactic Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search



The Glyphid Oppressor is literally an organic tank: A monstrously mutated Praetorian, the Oppressor is covered in so much bullet-resistant chitin that it is pointless to attack it from the front. Luckily, they still leave their abdomen mostly exposed to flanking maneuvers, but the Oppressor is something you very much don't want to encounter in a tight space. Their forelimbs are powerful enough to chew through sheer rock like butter, as well as capable of producing stunning shockwaves on impact. Be extra mindful of your footing when confronting one of these.
— Miner's Manual Description

The Glyphid Oppressor is a hostile creature found on Hoxxes IV. It can appear in any biome on any mission type.

It is a "mutated" Glyphid Praetorian, larger in size and with black, pointed, chitinous armor encasing every inch of its body save for a small, green abdomen found on its back. Two large, tusk-like fangs protrude from its lower jaw.

Combat

The Glyphid Oppressor spawns by burrowing out of any ground, wall or ceiling. Like most Glyphids, it will always attempt to directly rush players and engage in melee combat. It regularly lets out deep roaring noises to make its presence known.

One major drawback of the Oppressor is its speed; it is fairly slow compared to most Glyphids and even has a slow turning speed, something players can exploit to damage the weakpoint on its back. However, it is immune to Stun and most sources of Fear, making it dangerous in tight spaces as there are few ways to stop its attacks.

Glyphid Oppressors can also appear during the unique Glyphid Praetorian swarm (though less commonly than their lesser Praetorian allies), which only occurs during Mining Expedition and On-site Refining missions.

Health and Armor

The Glyphid Oppressor has a massive section of unbreakable armor covering the entire front of its body. It has a small weakpoint on the back of its body, in roughly the same area as the Glyphid Praetorian. Unlike the Praetorian, however, the Oppressor's weakpoint is much smaller and therefore can be more difficult to hit.

The Oppressor is considerably resistant to fire, frost, explosive, electrical (though to a lesser degree), corrosive, and piercing damage, thus making it somewhat of a difficult enemy to take down. While it can also be damaged indirectly using weapons such as the CRSPR Flamethrower or the Cryo Cannon, these deal greatly reduced damage due to the Oppressor's aforementioned resistances.

It should be noted that melee weapons such as the Pickaxe deal 50% more damage to the Oppressor, even when not directed at its weakpoint. The Pickaxe's Power Attack can especially be an extremely effective damage dealer, although getting close to the Oppressor can often be a risky move.
