Barbed Terror Strategies
The barbed terror is a unique boss in terms of mechanics as it won't spawn any kind of minion. This fight is 100% mechanics and that is compensated by the small battleground and high damage attacks.
Make sure to focus his eyes to deal critical damage. He will raise his arms to summon spikes that come out from the walls, you will be able to know where they are coming from because the glow before coming out. Attack him until the spikes are near, dodge on the opposite direction of the spikes and keep attacking. He will occasionally use his arm to perform an attack from above or form the sides, use your dodge to prevent the damage.
After you deal enough damage he will be staggered, you can use the opportunity to inflict more damage or to pick up some ammo near the wall.
Attacks & Counters
Spikes From The Wall: He will summon spikes from the wall that move forward covering all the battlefield. These can come from either left or right wall, and fire towards the middle of the arena. They can also appear and fan outwards from the throne he sits upon.
|Watch the glowing on the wall to anticipate the spikes. Wait until they are close and dodge in the opposite direction to prevent the damage.|
|Vertical Slice: He will use his arm to attack you from above.||Wait until his arm is close and doge either left or right.|
|Side Slice: He will use his arm to attack you from the right side, covering the entire arena in his swipe. This motion always moves from the right side of the battlefield to the left, as his "Blade" arm is on his left (your right).||Dodge left or right to avoid the damage.|
|Throne Sweep: He will dig his blade arm into the ground on the left side of his throne and sweep it across the front very quickly to the right side. This only occurs if you're right up against his throne underneath him. This only affects a small area in front of the throne and not the rest of the room.||Dodge backwards. Avoid staying too close to him.|
