Drogyga Phase 1

Your goal is to shoot the tentacle on top of Drogyga. Use more regular Power Beam and Charged Shots than missiles here — you don’t get a lot back, so save them.

  • Drogyga will fire three projectiles at you. You can (and should) shoot the blue ones for energy and missiles. The red ones are invulnerable, so just avoid them.
  • Drogyga will slash at you with tentacles. Stay in a corner and jump over them — it helps to move toward Drogyga a little while you jump.

Once you have shot the tentacle enough, shoot the button on the wall with a Charged Shot, and then Grapple Beam up to the Spider Magnet panel on the ceiling. Ride to the far side, and fire a Charged Shot at the other button.

Drogyga will open its mouth(?) and expose a weak point. Keep hitting it with missiles as fast as you can.

After enough damage, Drogyga will raise a tentacle. Melee Counter this one to enter a Grab Phase (and get some energy and missiles).

Drogyga Phase 2

There’s not much different in phase 2.

  • This time, there will be two red and one blue projectile. Focus on the blue one.
  • The tentacle slashes are a bit quicker, so stay near the corner to give yourself a little more time.
  • Occasionally, all three tentacles will coil together along the floor. When this happens, Grapple Beam up to the ceiling to avoid them.

Repeat this process until Drogyga is defeated.
