Attack Patterns and Weaknesses

Water Cannon

Scarlet Nexus - Coil Moil

Coil Moil has a water cannon on its head. We highly recommend mastering Perfect Dodge for this battle. You can also use Teleportation to penetrate through its water cannon attack and jump in close.

Tunneling Underground

Scarlet Nexus - Coil Moil

Coil Moil can tunnel underground and spring back undetected. Use Clairvoyance to detect where Coil Moil will spring from.

Alternatively, you can determine where Coil Moil will spring out from by paying attention to the ground. Crumbling ice indicates that it is about to jump out. Block the damage by activating Sclerokinesis.

Ice Spikes

Ice Spikes will rise from the ground in a wide range whenever Coil Moil pleases. Keep mobile or use Teleportation to speed up your dodging.

Heavy Punch

Scarlet Nexus - Coil Moil Heavy Punch

Coil Moil also has a heavy punch. After it hits the ground, it will generate large Ice Spikes in front of itself. Dodge forward or towards its back to avoid this attack.

Water Bubbles

Scarlet Nexus - Coil Moil Water Bubble Attack

At certain points of the fight, Coil Moil will generate Water Bubbles that will home in on players. They deal a lot of damage, so make sure to avoid them using Sclerokinesis or Teleportation.

Alternatively, you can use Invisibility for Kasane's Route when Coil Moil does this attack.

Water Pillars

Scarlet Nexus -  Coil Moil Water Pillars

When Coil Moil's icy shell is broken, it will sometimes surround itself with Water Pillars that prevent players from getting too close.

During this time, players can use Teleportation (Yuito) or Hypervelocity (Kasane) to bypass the pillars and attack its now exposed back.

Perfect Dodge Its Attacks Or Use Teleportation

Perfect Dodge or Teleportation

We highly recommend mastering Perfect Dodge for this battle. You can also use Teleportation to penetrate through its water cannon attack and jump in close.

Use Pyrokinesis When It's Covered in Ice or Down

Use Pyrokinesis

In Yuito's Route, Pyrokinesis is highly effective when it is covered in ice. Likewise, this SAS is also powerful when Coil Moil is down.

For Kasane's Route, use Electrokinesis when you break its shell as Coil Moil will have the Wet status effect at this time. With Electrokinesis it is possible to stun lock it for a long time.

Target Its Back Shell Weakness

Target Back Shell Weakness

When Coil Moil protects itself with water pillars, it will expose its back to attack. The back will be highlighted, indicating a weakness to exploit. Use Teleportation to bypass the water pillars and attack its exposed back.

In Kasane's Route, use Hypervelocity to bypass the water pillars and attack its exposed back. Add crush gauge damage by also enabling Invisiblity.

Use the Clairvoyance Read Attack to Break Its Shell in One Go

Use Clairvoyance Read Attack

The most efficient way to break Coil Moil's shell is by using clairvoyance, doing a Perfect Dodge, and then executing a Read Attack. When pulled off correctly, Coil Moil's shell should break in one hit.

Alternatively, for Kasane's Route, you can use Duplication and barrage Coil Moil with objects until its shell breaks.
