Stage 1

Fire Breath


During the first stage, position yourself on a corner to avoid the Chrysaloid's Fire Breath (indicated by a long red vertical zone).

Out of Reach


Whenever you see that giant arm, roll to the back of the field to be out of reach from the Chrysaloid's attack.

Rock-alanche


When the Chrysaloid climbs the the structure, change your camera angle to view where the rocks are, then evade.

Aim for the Heart


The Chrysaloid's weak spot is its fleshy throat area. Overtime, this part gets more damaged as your shoot at it. We recommend Burning Bullets or Improved Burning Bullets as these Status Effects deal the most base damage over time.

Stage 2

Heartburn


After depleting its first health bar, the fight will move to a different area. At close range, the safest spot is directly under the Chrysaloid itself. This position exposes its vulnerable heart for Critical damage. When the opportunity arises, take it.

Rock Throw


If you see the Chrysaloid retreating, toggle off your ADS and get a wider view of the area. This will help you navigate where the rocks will fall on.

Strixes get Stitches


Strixes will appear from time to time to menace you. Killing these bugs can be tricky as they are very agile in the air. However, their attack pattern leaves a brief opening for critical shots.

When a Strix is about to launch a ranged attack, it will expose its belly. Focus your fire on that area to kill them quickly.

Stick to Sidelines


Observe when the Chrysaloid goes into a higher platform . This is the same Fire Breath attack it used in Stage 1. Steer clear of the red zone, and continue attacking once it gets down.

The breath attack is sonic rather than fire. I thought it was a fire attack myself due to the red line but in this game red seems to mean damaging. THe bio doesn't mention fire just a sonic attack that bursts ear drums
