What is Ikaros?

Iconic Eagle Companion

Ikaros is your royale Eagle companion that you will have from the beginning of the game. Using his keen eyes and flight, he will support you in reconnaissance during your adventures.

Tag Enemies & Points of Interests

You will be able to mark enemies and points of interests such as treasures, prisoners and war resource caches by entering the Stationary Mode as Ikaros. You will be able to spot these marked items on foot and through walls.

Tag Enemies to Inspect Their Strength

Tagging the enemy will reveal their name, level, rarity and available perks should you recruit them. Use this knowledge to seek out the safest tactics when engaging, or when looking for capable soldiers to recruit.

Ikaros's Ability Upgradable by Synchronizing

By syncing with numbers of Fast Travel points around the map (marked with an "eagle" mark), Ikaros's ability will become more effective; providing wider scan areas and act as distraction when engaging enemies.

Using Ikaros Effectively

Scan Unknown Areas Before Entering

Upon entering unknown areas, it is advised that you make a habit of having Ikaros run reconnaissance before entering the zone yourself. By scanning the zone may reveal potential threats and hidden loots.

Check Enemies' Patrol Routes

By flying above your targeted area, you may track almost any movement that your enemies make. By tracking their patrol routes, it will make far more easier to anticipate them and use the safest route to sneak in.

Track Indicators to Find POIs

White indicators and circles appearing on your HUD in Stationary Mode indicate points of interest near by your reticle; highlighting brighter bolder the closer you get. Use this as a reference when scanning for your target or treasure.
