Requires a Bit of Parkouring
The Dungs are placed in high places, requiring players to do a bit of platforming to get to them. When jumping, give it a running start to be able to make the gap.

Eista - Mini Boss Battle Tips
Jump When He Does Shockwave Attacks
You can easily dodge Eista's shockwave attacks by jumping since they're all ground-based. Keep an eye on him as he does his attacks to get the general direction of the shockwaves.
Mostly Has Melee Attacks
Keep your distance from Eista and you won't be damaged by him. Shoot him down as he tries to chase after you throughout the arena.
Wendigo - Boss Battle Tips
Has High Resistance to Elemental Damage
The Wendigo has high resistance against fire and corrosive damage. This means your weapons with these elements won't be able to deal as much damage as they should when used against the boss.
Shoot It when It's On Platforms
During the fight, the Wendigo will go to higher ground for a brief period. You can still damage it from up there with your weapons so take the opportunity to deal damage against it.
Shoot Its Exposed Belly
When it's on platforms, there's a chance that it can rear up and show its belly, which is its weakspot. Focus on it and if you deal enough damage, it will fall to the ground and be incapacitated for a few seconds.
Dodge Sideways During Rush Attack
Head to your left or your right when you see the Wendigo rearing a charge towards you. You can also trick it into hitting its head on a fallen rock and incapacitate it.
Reload Game if Balls Glitch Out
In the event that one or both of its quest-required balls glitch out, reload the save and the Wendigo's body will be gone, giving you access to its balls.
