6. Defending Civilians

Enemies Are Now Shielded

Enemies Are Now Shielded

7~8. Liberating Watershed Base

Enemies Will Now Have Elemental Damage

Enemies Will Now Have Elemental Damage

You may encounter enemies that deal fire or shock damage. Remember that each element has its own strengths and weaknesses. For example, try to engage fire enemies when you have shields up to reduce damage taken!

12. Securing the Weapons Depot

Armored Enemies Appear

Armored Enemies Appear

Armored enemies are denoted with a yellow health bar. This means that they take reduced damage from all elements except for Corrosive and Cryo! Equip these types of elemental weapons to instantly melt their HP.

13. Defending Against Counterattack

Aim For the Ball Behind the Badass

Several Badass Heavies will be deployed during the counterattack. These enemies can soak up damage and will relentlessly chase you. Aim for the ball on their backs as these deal critical damage and stagger them, allowing you to reposition if needed.

Gigamind - Boss Battle Tips

Super fighting robot gigamind
Recommended Level

Gigamind Throws Projectiles

Throws Projectiles To Attack

Gigamind will use ranged attacks to fight you. These include throwing drones that home in on you, and lasers that it emits from a forcefield. Since these are projectile type attacks, keep your distance in order to avoid them.

Use Shock Damage To Melt Shields

Use Shock Damage To Melt Shields

Gigamind will start the fight with a full shield bar. Use shock damage to instantly destroy it, allowing you to chip away at its health. Note that Gigamind's shield will not regenerate once it has been depleted.

Aim For the Red Spot On Its Back

Aim For The Red Spot On Its Back

Once its shield is depleted, it will create a force field in front of it that can deal damage to you. Get behind Gigamind and shoot at the red dot on its back to deal critical damage and avoid getting damaged by the shield.

Assault Troopers Regularly Spawn

Assault Troopers Regularly Spawn

Assault Troopers will regularly spawn during the fight. Gigamind will also deploy some drones that reinforce their shields, making them a pain to deal with. Take care of the drones first as they do not have much HP, then turn your attention to the Troopers.
