Anointed Enemy Profile
Another footsoldier of the Kett, these hulking infantry wield heavy weaponry.
The kett soldiers known as Anointed appear to be of similar caste to the Chosen: infantry equipped with light armor. These soldiers, however, wield heavy plasma cannons, making them a rallying point for other kett forces, and shield themselves with kinetic barriers against splashback. A barrage from its plasma cannon can shred through enemy barriers and severely damage ground vehicles.
Communication intercepts suggest that Anointed assist in coordinating Chosen squads and act in an NCO role. It is unclear if the term “Anointed” refers to a senior rank amongst the Chosen, or if Anointed are part of a separate division within the kett infantry.
With a new understanding of kett exaltation, it is now apparent that Anointed are exalted angara, transformed into soldiers of the kett cause. Their title may refer to foot soldiers who have been entrusted with a more crucial battlefield role by their superiors.
Personally, I deal with these enemies using backlash and my teammates. Command your team mates to attack the anointed, and use a fully-upgraded backlash to barrage him with his own bullets. You have to time it well because he does not shoot at you if he sees you activating your biotic ability. You’ll hear him whirr up, so as he does whir up, quickly activate backlash and deflect the brunt of his Soned‘s bullets back to him.
