To locate the cave entrance, swim a little bit to the right of the boss icon in the map. Then, dive down until you see an opening near large underwater vegetation.

Swim Until You Get to the Ruins

Keep on swimming until you reach the area where you will transition into walking. Keep heading up until you reach a clearing.

Hydro Tulpa Spawns at the Middle of the Area

Hydro Tulpa will spawn at the middle of the area when you get close to it. Be sure to be prepared in dealing with this boss!

Unlock the Teleport Waypoint Nearby

Before taking on Hydro Tulpa, unlock the teleport waypoint by the area's entrance. You will see it first before entering the area where the boss fight happens, so don't worry about missing it.

How to Beat the Hydro Tulpa

Destroy Half-Tulpas with Elemental Reactions

Half-Tulpas will spawn around the area. This will empower Hydro Tulpa when it decides to absorb it. Be sure to run around and destroy them with Elemental Reactions to deny this boss the powerups it needs!
