Boss Pincer

When a Pinceron gets older it acquires the rank of "Big Boss" among its kind. It is tradition that each "Big Boss" must offer an eye as tribute to gain this rank or be forever cast out. This cruel ritual has never been seen by anyone so it is hard to say how they obtain the eye patches

Appearance[ | ]

The Boss Pincer is a purple scorpion that has a large, flat head, two big, grey pincers and a mechanical-looking tail with a metal stinger. It has one black, shiny eye on the left and an eye-patch along with a blue scar where his right eye would be. It has four legs at the end of its body. It is basically a purple Pinceron.

Combat[ | ]

Once engaged in combat, the Boss Pincer will start following Lea. It will occasionally swipe one of its pincers at the player, briefly flashing red before striking. During its second attack, the Boss Pincer will stop moving, stick its stinger into the ground and chase the player with it from beneath. Once the stinger reaches them, it will quickly erupt from the ground in an attempt to stab them. It does this twice before it recovers its stinger. During the entirety of the second attack, it will flash red and be vulnerable to breaking from any attack.

Strategies[ | ]

When fighting a Boss Pincer, you should stay away while it's performing its swipes and wait until it sticks its stinger into the ground. Once this happens, the quickest way to stun it is by throwing Balls so that you don't have to approach it. If there are a lot of enemies in the way, consider using a Dash Combat Art to reach it and deal damage. Once it's stunned, try finishing it off with your Melee attacks, since the Boss Pincer is resistant to Balls.
