How to Beat Beamos

How to Beat Beamos
Poke the eyes (weak points). Aim with a bow and arrow, or hit the wings of the head with using the wind to stop the movement, cut off the body in that gap, and then poke the eyes.

Beamos are mechanical totem pole like enemies that fire a beam from their eye when players get too close.

Cut Beamos Down

Beemos cut down
Beamos are stationary which makes taking them down not so difficult. While the Beamos is looking away from you, run up and do a horizontal slash across the blue line on its body.

Now that it is lower to the ground, you can do a thrust attack on the eye to finish Beamos off.

Parry the Beam

With correct timing, players can parry the beam back at Beamos which will stun the monster, making it susceptible to attacks.
