Murderous Megamoth

Last updated: Exalt Version 1.3.0.0 (Dec 2020)

The Murderous Megamoth is the third and final form of the boss of the Woodland Labyrinth.

The Realm Eye says:
The Megamoth species is native only to dense lowlands forests. They are considered an invasive species to the highlands.
Their presence in the Woodland Labyrinth was a test by wildlife researchers to see how the species would perform in a similar ecosystem at a much higher altitude.
Megamoths did not just survive, they thrived. The species quickly dominated the woods, turned predators into prey, and grew to previously impossible sizes.

Behavior

Upon evolving, the Murderous Megamoth immediately spawns several Micro Megamoth Guardians to defend it. It will periodically spawn these alongside Micro Megamoth Sentinels and Mini Larvae during the fight.

The boss alternates between two attack patterns:

  • Circles the room clockwise while firing aimed shotguns of returning, Quieting green bolts alongside streams of yellow spinners perpendicular to its movement. The yellow spinners will abruptly decelerate and stagnate after travelling a certain distance, becoming stationary hazards.
  • Repeatedly lunges at players while firing 4-way shotguns of green crescents that inflict high armor-piercing damage. It will also be frequently releasing parametric pink glaives.

At a random point within the phase (usually about halfway), it will use a special attack. Moving into the center of the room and flashing red, the Murderous Megamoth flies in circles around the map, leaving behind a large number of lingering leaf projectiles.

When killed, all active Puke Water and minions will despawn.

Tips and Strategies

The speed and lethality of its dash attack makes standing still in this fight a death sentence. When it’s charging, keep moving away from it so it doesn’t get a chance to sit on you.

Circling along with the boss in its circling phases can let you deal massive damage, but beware of lingering shots. In particular, watch out for the leaf bullets used in its special attack, as they are very numerous and deal massive damage.
