Protects the Hive by hurling its huge body at intruders.
Like their smaller kin, their only instinct is to protect the Hive at any cost to themselves. Somewhat clumsy, they'll often damage the structure of the Hive when charging at intruders. Does this cause them shame? I do not know whether they have the capacity for such a thing.
Behaviour and Tactics
These massive creatures simply charge at the Knight, dealing 2 masks and rebounding off any terrain in their way. They can destroy cracked platforms, which can make platforming sections more difficult. Their massive size combined with their erratic bouncing movements makes them tricky to predict and avoid. Focus on them and destroy them as quickly as possible.
Dream Nail Dialogue
They are found in small groups within the Hive, usually near Hive Soldiers.
- With the Hiveblood equipped, they will not attack the Knight or deal damage on contact, however, they will retaliate when attacked.
- In order to get the Mask Shard in the Hive, it is necessary to bait a Hive Guardian into breaking a cracked wall, as the Hunter hints in his Journal entry.
