Fires Quills From Its Body
The Quillshot is a Neutral Behemoth that does damage to Slayers by firing its quills towards them. It also does several body slides, using quills on its body as a weapon.
Deadeye Quillshot Does More Accurate Quill Attacks
The Deadeye Quillshot has similar attacks to its regular variant but has more accurate quill shots that home onto Slayers. It also turns when it shoots quills from its back, repeating this move several times towards different directions.
Heroic Deadeye Quillshot Can Inflict Shellshock
In the Heroic difficulty, the Deadeye Quillshot receives a buff called Aether Shrapnel which turns its quills into a homing barrage of explosives that can deal Shellshock status. This gives you a temporary blinding effect, prevents sprinting and increases stamina costs of attacks and dodges.

Dangerous Moves & How To Boop

The Quillshot will slam its body into the ground and shoot quills from its back. Dodge towards its exposed body part to do damage to it while it is lying down.

Quills Home In & Follow You
When the Deadeye Quillshot vertically fires its quills, they will now be more accurate and zone in on where you stand. Avoid taking damage by dodging right before they hit you.
Turns When Lying Down & Shooting Quills
The Deadeye Quillshot will do the same move as it regular version but when it fires quills from its back, it uses that momentum to swivel and turn direction. Dodge or move with its direction to stay on the safe side of the Behemoth.
Can Be Staggered When Enraged & Firing Quills
The Quillshot can be interrupted when it is enraged and firing quills from its body. You don't have to target a specific body part but enough damage has to be done to knock it down or stagger it.
