P.A.X

Weakness Cockpit
Boss First

P.A.X is a Boss in The Surge. P.A.X is the first Boss in The Surge. Pacification Automaton X is a large mech that looks somewhat similar to ED 209 from Robocop. During the fight he is badly damaged and not fully functioning so he is not as deadly as he could be.

 

P.A.X Location

  • Rocket Assembly Station
  • Note: You must have restored power in the Power Plant for him to actively appear here. If you haven't you will see him under some dirt and rocks, but he will not respond.

 

 

P.A.X Drop

*To get the hardcore kill, you need to hit his legs and not let him get hit by his own missiles once. Eventually hitting his legs will cause him to drop as if he was hit by his own missiles, and you can hit his weak points.

 

P.A.X Strategy

The strategy for P.A.X isn't overly hard. You must attack his legs until you fill the orange bar under his health. Once this is done he will fire rockets and if you are underneath him, he will hit himself with these, knocking himself down and giving you and opportunity to put in some shots on his cockpit, damaging his health. You'll just want to keep repeating this process. It is wise, during the fight, to stay under him as often as you can, and slightly behind him. Just be careful not to get stomped on.

P.A.X Hardcore Strategy (P.A.X. Imperator V2.0)

To get the hardcore kill, you need to hit his legs and not let him get hit by his own missiles once. Eventually hitting his legs will cause him to drop as if he was hit by his own missiles, and you can hit his weak points.

P.A.X Tips/Notes

  • There is a Trophy/Achievement for defeating a boss while carrying 20,000 or more Tech Scrap. It is suggested you do it on this boss as he is the easiest.
  • There is no way to get out of the Assembly Halls without defeating this boss.

          One thing to note is that PAX will jump forward or backward depending on if you're in front or behind it during the missile phase. If you're going for the hardcore kill, pay attention and make sure PAX isn't jumping backwards toward the green windows or the main door. The outcroppings on those walls will block the missiles, causing the explosion to down PAX and negating the hardcore kill requirement.

            Doing this gets you the P.A.X. Imperator V2.0 which is a super version of his regular weapon.
