A skirmisher armed with the ability to manipulate Anemo and heal their comrades.
They departed from their motherland and did so for its sake. They left their family, yet gained allies to stick through thick and thin with.
—Perhaps such thoughts are what get them through the unscrupulous work that their missions entail.

Anemoboxer Vanguards are Fatui Skirmishers that harness the power of Anemo. They can perform a powerful punch with their gauntlets, dealing Anemo DMG. They are also capable of generating an Anemo shield in front of them, which is almost always directed towards allies if any are nearby. The shield grants them immunity to damage from that direction for a few seconds or until it comes in contact with Hydro, Pyro, Cryo or Electro. Contact with one of these elements results in an Elemental Absorption, after which they immediately lift the shield while charging up their gloves, sucking players in before punching them and dealing damage based on the element the shield absorbed. They can also dash towards the player or a nearby Fatui Skirmisher to follow up with an Anemo shield.

The Anemoboxer Vanguard will also recuperate any Skirmisher that has been dazed from the forced removal of their elemental armor. They are the most mobile and agile among the Skirmishers, as they possess the Anemo element. However, they are also the only type of Fatui Skirmishers that don't possess a damage-reducing elemental armor that requires specific Elemental Reactions to remove.
