Archer Square is a meeting place at the heart of the Neon district, in Empire City. Encompassed by three connecting roads, the square is home to a large statue with glazed pavilions to either side. There are also a host of planters and benches dotted around the square. Around the roads that circle the square are a number of office buildings, stores and even a museum, some of which have billboards and big screen TV's atop them. After the blast the area became dangerous, due to the gangs of Reapers terrorizing the citizens of the Neon.
After learning of a food drop in the area, Cole and Zeke made their way to Archer Square only to find the food crates had snagged on the now damaged statue. Cole climbed the mangled structure and destroys the link that had caught on the statue, allowing the food crates to fall to the square below.
As Cole was about to leave Empire City for New Marais, The Beast appeared at the heart of Archer Square, destroying the square along with the rest of Empire City. Additionally, the statue at Archer Square was ripped from its foundations by the Beast and hurled at Cole, who was watching events unfold from the Empire City Pier.
