The Executor is designed to protect the inner solar system of the Aureus in Fulzar. It's uncontested by the Nezerians which are too afraid to attack. It is made out of solid gold hence the huge health and has a teleport ability which kills attackers foolish enough to stay close. It spawns a variety of Aureus shapes to protect it and this is where the real difficulty of the Executor is. Also has a teleporting special attack called Executor Stomp. Don't try to harden shield the stomp it wont help!!
Executor is made up of the following parts:
|Executor Spawner|| 20,000,050 shield
|Spawns Aureus Orb, Aureus Radiant, Aureus Square and Aureus Triad|
|Executor Body||5,000,000 health|
|Executor Lightning||10,000,000 health||Aureus Lightning|
|Aureus Energy Manipulator||19%|
|Aureus Kinetic Manipulator||19%|
|Aureus Corrosive Manipulator||19%|
Spawns at -425, -100 after 1:30
The Executor appears to have multiple parts (estimating 17 parts) that needs to be destroyed. The Aureus Spawner in the middle of the Executor seems to spawn the minions that interrupt players from killing the boss.
Attacking the middle spawner of the Executor to remove its ability to spawn the projections is the best plan to take down this boss.
Using the Jaws of the Bionic Queen (Ship) with Infested Missiles (infested missiles with extra kinetic resist debuff are essential) can do extreme damage to the Executor as well as heal the player. Using 4 rate of fire artifacts with 1 all res art is the best all round setup to damage the spawner but players can also replace the resist art with an extra kinetic damage art making them deal much more damage at the cost of survivability. Fly towards the executor baiting it to teleport stomp you, dodge the attack and then rush to the spawner shooting infested and then Jaws. When the orbs are spawning, use your Q ability to try and survive a bit longer. You can also use your Jaws to heal any lost health. Using Astro Lance is the best option for damage to the rest of the boss after the spawner is dead.
Scatter Shell :
Using the Scatter Shell of the Golden Heart with Infested Missiles (Infested Missiles with extra kinetic resist debuff are essential) can also do some respectable damage to the Executor as well as heal the player when used with the healing elite tech. Using 4 rate of fire artifacts with 1 all resist art is the best all round setup to damage the spawner but players can also replace the resist art with an extra kinetic damage art making them deal much more damage at the cost of survivability. Using Astro Lance is the best option for damage to the rest of the boss after the spawner is dead. A video can be found showing the correct way to execute this method here
Shadowflames are also powerful enough to deal enough damage to the Executor to be relevant. You can use the Void Tentacles with energy resist debuff to debuff the Executor's resist and shoot the flames to deal damage. Energy % arts should be used instead of RoF. Using the heal tech on the flames is a good route for survivability.
Plasma Gun :
The Plasma Gun is a less powerful and more risky way to kill the executor. You would use Void Tentacles as well as max RoF arts to deal damage to the center as fast as possible before running away and letting the DoT do the damage. (DoT stays even if the Executor teleport stomps.) This is a lot harder to pull off and probably not worth it unless you know what you're doing.
Using the Shadowflames with the corrosive tech can be a more effective version of the energy based version. Instead of using Void Tentacles, you would use the Nuke Launcher with corrosive resist Elite Tech to debuff instead. Corrosive % arts should be used here.
It takes 6 seconds for it to teleport.
The other strategy that some players have used is to use the Sticky Bombs weapon to great effect on the Executor. Equipping max rof and Exceptional Omni Enhancers as well as both the debuff weapons - infested missiles and void/piercing gun - and then spamming the stickies into the spawner can deal millions of damage per explosion. Most effective on the Medic C2 ship or Retro; these 2 ships have RoF bonuses making it much easier and effective to do.
- This is the enemy with the HIGHEST health in the game, almost 5x as much as the second most heavily shielded enemy.

- Resistances until January 2015 were Kinetic Resist 145%, Energy Resist 165%, Corrosive Resist 120%
- The Teleportation timer decreases as more of Executor's parts fall off.
- If any player lures Executor out of Ymer's orbit, Executor will warp back into the Aureus Fleet.
