The Elite Guard, also known as an EKG, is the follow-up from the original Krimzon Guard. Clad in yellow armor, these enemies are slightly larger and more powerful.
The Krimzon Guard used these soldiers after Jak entered Mar's Tomb, probably to protect Haven City and the Precursor Stone from Jak and the Underground. They will be found throughout the city along with ordinary guards, and in certain locations such as the Weapons Factory.
Elite Guards wear yellow armor similar in appearance to that of the standard guards.
Elite Guards will behave the same way as the other guards and operate the same weaponry except for vehicles. However, unlike the original Guard, they never operate any vehicles (although it's possible they were operating the Elite HellCat Cruiser.) nor are they seen as a Hover Guard. They are most likely Special forces, called in for more security or special activities. Aside from having more endurance than the normal guards, the elite guards are relatively the same as the regular Krimzon Guard.
As the Elite Guards behave the same way as ordinary guards, they have the same attacks from their rifles and close combat taser.
Evasion of the Elite Guards involves the same tactics as with ordinary Guards.
The Elite Guard takes 4 hits from a melee or morph gun attack (excluding the Peace Maker), whereas the normal Krimzon Guard takes 2 hits to kill. Killing them is, thus, slightly more difficult, but still involves the same tactics.
