Lord Vraxx is a high dexterity diabolical alien warlord Legend, featuring the Rocket Lance and Blasters as his weapons. He can be unlocked for 3900 gold. Hairless, with teal skin, and a single malicious eye, Vraxx's alien nature is unquestionable. His appearance reflects his grandeur and self-dignity: Vraxx is the boss, wants you to know it, and isn't afraid to leverage his otherworldly reflexes, conniving trickery and high-tech weaponry make sure you never forget it in the arena of combat.

Lore

The Despotic

Lord Vraxx we adore thee. So strong and smart and great.
Don't shoot or fry or jail us. Don't crush or immolate.
Don't chop us into pieces. Don't throw us in the bay.
We are loyal, true, and faithful. You're looking great today. - 241st stanza of the Vraxxian Imperial Anthem.

Vraxx's father was Governor-Tyrant of the Ice Planet Roldakk-9, and young Vraxx spent his childhood like most Zhaktari noblespawn - in a vat. As a cadet pilot in the Zhaktar Academy for Conquest and Subjugation, he excelled in space dogfighting, spacedog fighting, judging the weak and planetary inmolation.

As a young warlord, Vraxx destroyed Roldakk for harboring his childhood piano teacher and soon built an impressive empire through fear, intimidation, brillant space combat, and fear. However, Vraxx's extraordinary military prowess was always undermined by overconfidence, grandstanding, gloating, unworkable revenge plots, and general self-indulgence. He destroyed one planet because he didn't like the color of their beaches, and disintegrated so many ill-performing generals that the rank of lieutenant colonel became known as 'the sweet spot.'

In Valhalla, Vraxx's naked ambition and unremitting scheming is reassuringly constant. He is contemptuous of heroes who are not royalty, and only Nai, Bodvar, Hattori and Orion are worthy of direct address. Vraxx's most prized possession is everything he owns so no touching.

Now, Lance Starchampion, I've beaten you at laser sword dueling, just as I have beaten you at everything else. But I will keep you alive long enough to witness my final victory. - Lord Vraxx

Appearance

Vrazz charging forward with his Lance

In appearance, Lord Vraxx is one of the most noticeable and distinct Legends, due in part to his alien nature. Most obviously, Lord Vraxx has a single large eye glaring from the centre of his forehead, which dominates both his face and his image as a whole.

As well as this most striking feature, Vraxx's face is unnatural and inhuman in a range of other ways - his lack of a visible nose, his unusually large and grinning mouth, his low ears and his large protruding brow being the most notable. Even the shape of his head portrays his unearthly nature, with an obviously lumpy surface and a bulge at the back that gives his head a bulbous shape.

Aside from how alien Lord Vraxx's appearance is, other aspects of his character are also implied, such as his malicious nature and royal blood. His large eye, for example, is colored a deep blood red, and is in a constant scowling glare. His hard grin also shows his determination and his disregard for forgiveness or fair play.

Vraxx preparing to shoot his Blasters

Lord Vraxx's regal lineage is most apparent from his armour, which is colored a shining magenta with an opulent golden gilt. His armour is practical, encasing and protecting a significant portion of his body, while allowing for the movement needed during battle. However, the decorative gold trim, plus the high collared decorative piece that extends above his head show Vraxx's extravagance and power. Interestingly, two thin tubes come from the bracer of each forearm, with an unknown purpose.

Vraxx's weapons both have the same color and theme as his armour, being made of smooth magenta and gold metal, though also colored a clean white in parts. His blasters, called the 'Selenite Ray Guns' have the appearance of a classic, caroon style alien gun - almost a stereotype of alien ray guns in modern culture - with no gun-barrel but instead a protruding emitter of deadly rays and waves. Vraxx's Lance - the 'Selenite Jet Lance' - has a long smooth point and a simple black handle, but grows into a large base which hold the lance's rocket.

Strategy

General

Use of Signatures

Signatures: Lord Vraxx
Blasters Neutral Short-ranged, hits very wide, quick to start and lingers for a long time. When combined with an aggressive approach, it’s practically impossible to dodge in close range -- both on the ground and in the air. Still, it’s easy to punish when missed. BlastersVraxx.png
Blasters Side Shorter range than most Side Sigs, but it’s a one-two attack that creates a long-lasting threat -- and if the enemy dodges or closely avoids the first shot, they can still be hit by the second blast. Still, you cannot interrupt this attack, and so it can easily get you punished.
Blasters Down A very unique signature that creates a big explosion far away from you. Useful for spacing/zoning opponents or when you need to surprise the enemy. This attack can even force foes to approach from the air -- and right into your Neutral Blasters Sig.
Lance Neutral This anti-air attack hits at an unusually shallow angle. This can make it hard to land, especially since hitboxes aren't very wide, so good timing is required. However, its lack of width is made up by its very long range plus decent speed -- these two features make it somewhat safe and very hard to contest from the air. RocketLanceVraxx.png
Lance Side Like many Lance Side Sigs, this is a long-ranged pushing attack. The range is its main strength, and it can even move you away from danger. However, use it carefully -- it's slow, and there's a small but minor deadzone to this attack.
Lance Down This is Vraxx's best close-range Lance Sig, and his only Lance Sig that can hit stacked opponents. For a defensive Down Sig, it has a decent range, which makes it easier to land. Its main weakness is the fairly long startup time, so it shouldn't be used recklessly. Still, with high risk comes high reward in the form of good force for a defensive Sig, plus throwing the opponent behind Vraxx, which is useful when in danger or against an edge-guarding enemy.

Changelog

Click to see changes to this Legend ->
Open Beta
Build Changes
2.81.0 There are several Legends with one or two Signatures that stand too tall above the rest of their kit, and so we have shifted some power from those Signatures into their lesser used or weaker attacks. Notable changes include less coverage on Vraxx’s Neutral Lance for greater counterplay from grounded opponents.
 • Vraxx Neutral Lance: Decreased Damage from 37 to 34; Reduced lower coverage, resulting in no longer striking grounded opponents.
 • Vraxx Down Blasters: Increased Damage from 22 to 25.
2.53.0 • Smoothing adjustments to Vraxx Select Screen animations
2.52.0 Increased travel speed to push effective threat farther forward and make Signature harder to outrun.
 • Vraxx Side Lance – Increased travel speed before the first hit.
2.50.0 Like a number of other Signatures on this list, Vraxx’s Side Lance did not have a reward in line with the current state of the game. We have increased this reward to provide a more reliable option for scoring knockouts that is comparable with other similar Signatures.
 • Lord Vraxx Side Lance: Increased Force from 50 Variable/65 Fixed to 53 Variable/65 Fixed.
2.18.0 • Vraxx Neutral Lance: Fixed some cases where targets could be hit away from Vraxx and still affected by the grab behaviors.
• Vraxx Down Lance: Fixed some cases where targets could be hit away from Vraxx and still affected by the grab behaviors.
2.17.0 Vraxx's Neutral Lance on hit behavior extended a few frames into the miss animation before transitioning into the hit animation. There are still some slightly jarring aspects to the transition that we'll have to address in a later patch, but this shouldn't have any significant balance implications.
 • Vraxx Neutral Lance: Adjusted animation to match Hitbox timing; Total power duration on hit decreased from 87 to 83.
• Vraxx Neutral Blasters: Adjusted Hurtboxes to better follow animation.
• Vraxx Neutral Lance: Adjusted Hurtboxes to better follow animation.
• Vraxx Down Lance: Adjusted Hurtboxes to better follow animation.
• Vraxx Neutral Blasters: Adjusted animation timing to better match Hitboxes.
• Vraxx Side Blasters: Adjusted animation timing to better match Hitboxing.
• Vraxx Neutral Lance: Adjusted animation timing to better match Hitboxes and Recover Time.
2.16.0 We're moving some power from Vraxx's extremely high damage Neutral Lance to bolster the underwhelming damage of his Side Lance.
 • Vraxx Neutral Lance: Decreased Damage from 40 to 36.
 • Vraxx Side Lance: Increased Damage from 21 to 26.
• Vraxx Side Lance - Fixed a case where target could be dropped before the final hit.
2.14.0 • Vraxx Side Blasters: Fixed some cases where target could be dropped before the final hit.
2.13.1 Vraxx's Down Blasters have both low Damage and Force for a signature, and is getting a slight increase.
 • Vraxx Down Blasters: Increased Damage From 20 to 22; Increased Variable Force from 45 to 46.
• Vraxx Side Lance: Fixed a case that could cause the target to be dropped before the final hit. Credit: JimBenDoto
2.10.0 • Vraxx Neutral Lance: On first frame of hit window, movement speed is capped at 17.
• Vraxx Down Blasters: On first frame of hit window, movement speed is capped at 15.
2.8.0 • Vraxx Side Blasters: Updated hurtboxes to better match animation.
2.5.0 Vraxx's Side Blasters were killing too early considering their fast startup and recovery times and his 4 Strength.
 • Vraxx Side Blasters: Reduced Variable Force from 55 to 52.
2.3.1 Vraxx's Side Blasters didn't reflect the animation's timing very well. It's been adjusted slightly to match, which should also help with some potential drop cases.
 • Vraxx Side Blasters: Rehitboxed to better match animation.
2.1.0 Vraxx's Blaster signatures have some of the shortest Recover Times of any character, which can lead to some particularly abusive combinations. The biggest offenders have been given a little more window to punish.
 • Vraxx Neutral Blasters: Increased Recover Time.
 • Vraxx Down Blasters: Slightly increased Recover Time.
2.0.0 • Vraxx Side Lance: Fixed some cases where target could be dropped before the final hit. [Credit Antlan]
Closed Beta
Build Changes
1.20.1 • Vraxx Side Blasters: Fixed a case where target could be dropped before the final hit.
1.17.0 Powers that "grab" had logic to prevent them from being interrupted when hit. These cases happen a lot more in 2v2 and can feel broken and unsatisfying. We'll be keeping an eye on these individual moves to see if it becomes too easy to save teammates caught by them.
 • Vraxx Neutral Lance, Vraxx Down Lance: Removed period where user cannot be interrupted during grab.
1.15.0 It's a continuing trend all the way from early alpha that we overestimate how much of a threat Vraxx is. We're improving two of his Lance signatures to reduce his reliance on the Neutral Lance sig that was reduced several patches ago. His Down Lance is now faster and more mobile, and his Side Lance hits harder.
 • Vraxx Down Lance: Slightly reduced Hitbox size; Slightly decreased Time to Hit; Slightly increased Hit Window; Increased distance traveled; Increased Damage.
 • Vraxx Side Lance: Increased Force.
1.14.0 • Reassigned color swap values to Vraxx's skin for clarity.
1.13.0 • Vraxx Neutral Lance: Increased Hitbox size.
1.12.0 • Vraxx Lance Neutral: Rehitboxed to better match animation; Reduced Hitbox size.
• Vraxx Lance Side: Rehitboxed to better match animation. Fixed some cases where targets could be dropped before the final hit.
• Vraxx Blasters Neutral: Slightly adjusted starting hitboxes.
1.10.1 • Vraxx Neutral Blasters: Now has charge up FX.
1.9.1 • New special buildup sounds for Vraxx.
1.7.2 • Vraxx Blasters Neutral Heavy: Added a small hitbox when swinging pistols upward that combos into the blast. Increased Damage and Force.
• Vraxx Blasters Side Heavy: Increased Damage.
• Vraxx Blasters Down Heavy: Decreased minimum charge time. Increased Damage.
• Vraxx Lance Down Heavy: Increased AoE size to better match animation. Slightly increased hit window. Increased Force.
1.7.0 Ada, Cassidy, Lord Vraxx, and Scarlet now have unique powers for all Heavy ground attacks with both weapons.
