Atrocitus is an enforcer type who deals great damage and shrugs it off in equal measures. His passive is Red Lantern’s Rage, which damages nearby foes and turns his HP meter into a Rage meter that fills when damaged. When the meter is at half or more, his skills become enraged.
Crimson Slash grants additional power damage and slows enemy movements. If enraged, this effect is applied to all nearby enemies. Come at me causes all drones to target Atrocitus and reduces damage taken from them. When enraged, this move greatly increases the frequency of Red Lantern’s Rage.

His ultimate is Plasma Wave, which increases enemy’s incoming damage and deals power damage over time.
