experience gain from enemy
|Deep Impact Boss|
This is the first megaboss to feature a spawning attack, filling the room up with Purple Gel UFOs that can disable players if they are not taken down quickly enough. When its laser attack is triggered, 50 laser beams will appear from the boss' head to the character's location over the course of a second.
As the laser attack activates with a frequency of over 1s, it is possible to use the bait strategy to direct the beams away from the boss. However, once the Purple Gel UFOs start spawning, it may be tricky to divert the other characters' attention to the spawned enemy and not let the bait get caught in the laser beam. Fire Charms have limited usefulness in this fight, as the laser beams disappear upon hitting a character, and there are fifty separate laser projectiles fired.
With a weapon that deals strong knockback rapidly, the boss can be kept out of its laser firing range, keeping characters generally safe and allowing the player to focus on taking down Purple Gel UFOs that spawn. This boss drops all the level 8 weapons in the Martian Series, some of which have unique properties that players may find useful.
