The Sarkaz Lancer is an elite enemy in Arknights.[note 1]

Enemy description
A Sarkaz mercenary. After special training, they are capable of rushing forward with a long spear, building up speed. The faster they charge, the harder they strike any who might stand in their way.

Overview

Gradually accelerates when moving, dealing bonus damage on the first hit after being blocked based upon Movement Speed.
—Tooltip

A Kazdelian Sarkaz mercenary lancer, Sarkaz Lancers charge forth as they moves, where their movement speed gradually increases at a rate of 50% of their base speed every 0.5 seconds that stacks additively up to 25 times; the MSPD buff will be reset when the Sarkaz Lancer stops moving (including being immobilized due to Stun, Freeze, Bind, and Levitate). Should the Sarkaz Lancer get blocked while charging, their first attack will deal an additional instance of Physical damage equal to 600 × MSPD, giving the following implications:

  • If the Sarkaz Lancer reaches maximum speed, the attack deals 450 + 2075 = 2525 damage.
  • With Originium Flow Generators that increase the speed of enemies moving upstream by 80%, Sarkaz Lancers' speed will be increased further to 6.075 tiles/sec., which means that the attack will deal 450 + 3645 = 4095 damage.

Overall, Sarkaz Lancers, in spite of their unremarkable stats, are a highly dangerous foe capable of inflicting massive damage and possibly outright knocking out Operators with strong DEF. It is advised to use crowd-controlling effects to minimize the damage they can cost or dispatch them as soon as possible for comfort.
