How to Beat - Seething Bazelgeuse 2.gif
The Seething Bazelgeuse has a powerful attack that can cause a huge explosion after it drops his purple scales. This can immediately cart you if you manage to get hit by this attack. It is best that you leave the area during this attack to avoid its wide explosion range.

Weakening the Scales

You can weaken the scales by hitting them using your slinger pod with Puddle Pods, Scatternut, and Crystal Bursts. Hitting Seething Bazelgeuse with these different types of ammo can down him for a few seconds which can be used as an opportunity to attack with your most powerful skills.

Tail Attacks

How to Beat - Seething Bazelgeuse 3.png
Unlike the normal variant, Seething Bazelgeuse has a few more tail attacks that have been added to his pattern. These attacks can be difficult to avoid if you commit too much on attacking. It is best that you do not try to finish off your combos and prioritize dodging during the hunt.

Also, cutting the tail can shorten the range of his tail attacks significantly. It is best that you prioritize cutting the tail whenever possible.

Avoid Using Rocksteady Mantle

Using Rocksteady Mantle will prevent you from getting blown away by the explosions. This can be dangerous if there are a handful of scales present in the area as it can hit you multiple times without pushing you out of its range.
