Strix is one of the Champions in Paladins.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Having spent most of his life in the military, Strix was an invaluable member of the Sentinels, tasked with training their elite sharpshooters like Kinessa. He was reassigned after the unit was disbanded, sent to the front lines with the regular army as it prepared to put down the Resistance.

Always the calm and composed professional, he is the master of stealth and camouflage, able to pick off high value targets before the enemy is even aware of his presence—or that they are under attack at all.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Strix is one of two snipers along with Kinessa. He is the first champion capable of switching between his primary and secondary weapons. His ultimate is a flashbang grenade, which is a non-lethal ordnance that can blind his enemies for a short period of time. His sniper rifle can deal 1200 damage per round to the body or limb. A headshot can deal 1800 damage, forcing most of his enemies to immediately retreat and hide from him. His pistol deals less damage but is useful for engaging in close-quarters situations.
