Drop Anchor [edit]
Swiggins throws Homboldt in an arch. If it hits an enemy Awesomenaut, it will be chained to homboldt for a couple of seconds. The anchor can be destroyed. Now that's anchor management!
Damage 100 (157)
Cooldown 11s
Duration 3s

Who said tentacles are only good for swimming in a weird manner? The admiral has no issues whatsoever with manouvering ground based obstacles. Swiggins can also perform a hovering technique by propelling himself upward with ink squirts. Quite splendid.

Backstory[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

Raised in the Swiggins Navy Family on the Kraken planet Titan, Charles Swiggins was the youngest of 30 siblings. Graduating from Wet Point with top honors, he quickly rose through the ranks to become Captain of his very first ship in the Royal Fleet. This ship was called the ‘Sweet Homboldt’.

Tasked with finding and defeating Pirates, Swiggins set out with a loyal crew on many succesful sortees. One day, the Homboldt chanced upon the massive Pirateship 'Colossus' helmed by the dreaded Captain Inkbeard!

After a furious battle, which reduced both ships to floating heaps of debris, the two captains were the only ones alive for a final showdown. Being nearly overpowered, Swiggins' grasping tentacle found a chain just below the surface of the churning water. Powered by his desperation he hurled the object at his foe. This object was Sweet Homboldts anchor! With one massive blow, Swiggins ended the biggest Pirate threat on Titan once and for all.

Now an Admiral, he has exchanged the seas for the voids of space where his fame and leadership skills have found him a contract among the Awesomenauts!

Extra[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

In the beginning, Swiggins was a part of the 2012 Create-A-Naut contest, in which hundreds of characer concepts were sent in, with only one making it in game. Admiral Swiggins was initially chosen by Ronimo Games staff to be in the top 5, of which would then be voted on by the community in order to decide which of the 5 would be made. User Channfree's Admiral Swiggins was chosen.

Another contest was later made to decide how Admiral Swiggins would look. Once again, the community was able to send in their entries, showcasing many different depictions of the character. In the end, user coffeybean4 won the contest with the design seen below.

Admiral Swiggins, PHD[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

CharacterRender Swiggins DrFetus RedBG.png
So we asked the guys at Team Meat if they would be cool with us making a Dr. Fetus skin for Admiral Swiggins. They told us "awesome. do as you wish with it :)", so here's what would have happened if Swiggins went to Med School instead of War School. He still ends up as an Admiral in the Navy, somehow - but now with an extra degree and a violent hatred against jumping pieces of bloody meat.

This DLC contains a custom skin for Admiral Swiggins in Awesomenauts, and will automatically unlock the character if you have not already done so. - Official Steam Store description.

In this skin, Swiggins is replaced by Dr. Fetus, a character from Super Meat Boy which can be seen floating inside the glass tank where Swiggins' head is normally. The tentacles are replaced by robotic limbs and the armor has a darker color scheme, a suit and a tie. The anchor is covered in bandages and the glass tank has a top hat and monocle.

Trivia[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

  • Admiral Swiggins was the first 'naut to be created via a community contest. He was designed by Channfree and got the most votes from the community of all the five finalist 'nauts chosen by Ronimo Games (the others being Ivan Romanov, Nodja, Jebediah Molecoon and Yowie the Yeti). Coffeybean4 won the art contest for Swiggins which went on to become the official design.
  • Swiggins was the first Awesomenaut to have splash art not made by Ronimo Games.
  • Swiggins' in-game sprite was meant to have an eye patch, to mirror its splash art. This was later changed because it caused animation issues, not being clear enough. Ronimo Games opted for a mechanical eye instead.
  • Many of the lines spoken by Swiggins in-game were suggested to Ronimo Games by the Awesomenauts community. This trend was later followed with new 'Nauts, certain premium skins and exclusive Starstorm announcers all using community-created voicelines up until Nibbs, after which Ronimo started working with a professional writer for voice lines.
  • The Admiral Swiggins PHD, and Abyssal Swiggins skins are clear references to Dr. Fetus from Super Meat Boy [20] and the famous Lovecraftian [21] monster, Cthulhu [22], respectively.
  • Swiggins' in-game sprite was secretly shown in the trailer for Gnaw's Gnabot skin. (Shown below)
  • Swiggins was the first 'naut to be released with a premium skin.
  • Ronimo originally wanted community member Quinn "Weazel" Chert as Swiggins' voice actor. Despite the fact that he was ultimately voiced by Clint Hacklemen (aka Myndflame). Weazel would later be chosen by Ronimo Games to be the voice actor of Skree.
  • Swiggins' in-game sprite has an "M" on his armor. Possibly a reference to his voice actor: Myndflame.
  • According to The Droppod #8[23], Swiggins' theme song was actually sung by just one person who recorded the song 15 times to make it sound like a choir.
  • The name for Swiggins' anchor, Homboldt, appears to originate from the Humboldt Squid[24].

Tips & Tactics[编辑源代码]

Playing As:[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

  • While Anchor Hook can be used on terrain for a faster escape, it can be unreliable as the terrain hitbox often differ from the actual textures. Only attempt this if you are positive you'll be able to land it properly, or your escape will be delayed instead.
  • Swiggins becomes lighter and faster after dropping the anchor, allowing him a bit of extra mobility. Krill Biscuits increases this bonus even further.
  • It is possible to keep your anchor in a safe place (such as the store or behind a turret) in order to keep yourself in range mode. You can recall it at any time you need it afterwards.
  • Always try to touch your anchor back up after dropping it: it will allow you to recall it immediately and use your powerful Anchor Swing again. Furthermore, it enables you to use Anchor Hook if you didn't use it to initiate a fight.
  • If a ranged ally ('naut or non-buzzsaw droid) is tanking a turret for you, it might be a good idea to use Drop Anchor just to enable your ranged Ink Spray to attack it without taking damage. Alternatively, with proper upgrades, the anchor itself can have a large amount of health, enabling it to briefly tank the turret shots while you attack it with Ink Shot.

Playing With:[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

  • If Swiggins manages to trap someone with his Anchor Hook + Drop Anchor combo, help him finish the target off the best way you can.
  • If it's safe to do so, protect Swiggins' anchor so he can pick it back up.

Playing Against:[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

  • When trapped by Drop Anchor, destroying the anchor is almost always better than staying and fighting. Specially if Swiggins has his team nearby.
  • If the anchor fails to latch on to you after it hits the ground, it will not do so again. Approach it without fear.
  • If you are anchored, make sure not to fall through platforms. They might hold you in the air, making you very vulnerable to all attacks. If you do happen to get in this situation, use a ranged attack or ability to take the anchor out as soon a possible and use the help command to get your allies to help you.
  • Swiggins is very vulnerable to snares himself, as his only long-ranged move forces him to close the gap. Use traps like Yuri's mines or Derpl's grid traps to keep him from diving.
  • Swiggins is typically more vulnerable without his anchor, if you can avoid it when thrown, you are likely to have an advantage over him.
  • Crowd control immunity effects will break Drop Anchor's chaining effect immediatly.
  • Destroy the anchor will no longer force Swiggins to wait 20 seconds before picking it again. However, this can prevent the instant recall if he tries to touch his anchor right after dropping it.
