King Salmonids Battle Is 100 Seconds + Weapons Change At Start
The King Salmonid battle will change weapons as well as the 1/2/3 wave changeover, so make sure you know your weapons! Also, since the time limit is only 100 seconds, it is important to understand the necessary strategy to attack King Salmonid.
Special Attacks Reset To One
At the start of the battle, the number of useable special attacks is reset to one. Since the special attacks accumulate overtime, there is no need to save up for the battle against King Salmonid. You may use the special attacks in the 3rd wave to secure clearing the final wave before the boss, so use it as much as possible.
The Power Egg Cannon Deals The Most Damage To King Salmonids
King Salmonids are highly resistant to basic attacks from main weapons while the Power Egg Cannon generated by consuming Golden Eggs produces the most significant source of damage against it. Ideally, when using special attacks on Boss Salmonids, the King Salmonids should also be included in the attack, since special attacks can do some damage.
Prioritize Defeating The Boss Salmonids And Obtaining Golden Eggs
Boss Salmonids appear at the same time as the King Salmonids. Aim to get Golden Eggs first by defeating the Boss Salmonids.
Attack As Far Away From King Salmonids As Possible
King Salmonids have powerful attacks, so make sure to fight at a safe distance as much as possible to avoid getting too much damage. Even if you have close-range weapons, it is important to attack the Boss Salmonid with the main Weapons or by using special attacks → Attack with the Power Egg Cannon from a long distance.
King Salmonids Drop Reward
Scales Are Obtained According To The Damage Inflicted
As a reward, scales can be obtained according to the damage inflicted on King Salmonids. You can still get scales even if you fail to defeat King Salmonids, so do not give up and keep attacking until the end.
Scales Can Be Exchanged For Jumpsuits
Scales obtained can be exchanged for Jumpsuits and other items at the Grizzco Industries counter. There are also limited Splashtags, so be sure to do the King Salmonids challenge repeatedly and aim for exchanges.
