- Location: Rhom, The Iron Rift > The Hive
- The Boss may not spawn in your playthrough, and you will need to re-roll the campaign to attempt to get it.
Be sure to stock on Heavy Water Elixir, Adrenaline and Ammo Box before the fight. This fight is a bit of an endurance battle. Scourge doesn't deal a lot of damage that is hard to avoid, but has a lot of HP. Try to make each shot count. If you need ammo, kill his adds, but make sure to roll away if you're meleeing them as they die.
Scourge will slowly chase you around the room trying to hit you with its claws. Try to stay near the structure in the middle running in circles, when he gets close you will see it remains still and his arms start growing, you can jump backwards to avoid his attack and take a couple of shot on him. His melee attack will hit through walls, so pay attention to the audio cue and try to keep him in sight around corners. If you keep his adds between Scourge and yourself, they will be hit by his melee attacks, which will stagger them.
Every time you shoot him hives will spawn from its head, try to use a high damage weapon to spawn fewer hives. Scourge will also occasionally protect itself in a field and conjure many hives. You can hide inside the tunnel of the middle of the room but beware, as some hives may still reach you. You can also try to lure him inside and fewer hives will spawn.
Remember to use the Heavy Water Elixir when you are Irradiated.
If you are having problems avoiding the hives you can use Adrenaline to run faster
There will be two respawning adds that have a lunging attack and cause a radioactive explosion on death. They take damage from all of the bosses attacks. Avoid being near lowlife adds. As they respawn and are not highly aggressive, you are able to keep your back safe if you leave them alive and kite them and the boss. If the adds are gone be careful as they spawn outside your vision.
