The blood Maykr charges up its energy in this capture from the teaser trailer.

The blood Maykr is a new enemy which appears in The Ancient Gods, Part One, the first downloadable content expansion for Doom Eternal. It is a Maykr angel corrupted by the influence of Hell.[1] It is able to fly like a Maykr drone, and has been seen firing cross-shaped beams of energy from its staff; it can fire two of these beams in a spread formation and can also fire a spray of energy bullets like the Maykr drone. To defend itself, it can rapidly dash backwards. Unlike the previously seen Maykrs, its face is exposed and it wears a helmet that resembles a set of demonic horns. It somewhat resembles a smaller version of the Khan Maykr in several respects, especially in the shape of the head and the presence of wings.

Tactical analysis[edit]

The Blood Maykr has a shield, much like the Khan Maykr. While its shield effect is deployed, its weak point—the head—is protected. The shield will lower when it fires its double energy blast, allowing the player an opportunity to attack for maximum damage. The head is especially weak to shotgun sticky bombs and the heavy cannon precision bolt. Striking the head with the either of these weapons will deal bonus damage to the Blood Maykr like a Maykr drone, and like its weaker cousin a headshot kill will produce a shower of resources. While the body is not protected absolutely, shots taken there do minimal damage.[1]

Lore[edit]

When the Icon of Sin was unleashed within Urdak, many Maykr angels were corrupted by its will. With hellfire coursing through their veins and their minds shattered by the Icon's wrath, the Blood Maykrs move freely among the demons as they ravage their former home. They retain the spears they carried as loyal servants of Urdak, which they can hurl with the force of a thunderbolt.

Glory kills[edit]
