Outriders Chrysaloid | How to beat the forest boss

By this point in Outriders the Anomaly has thrown at lot your way, but now one of Enoch biggest beasts blocks your path: the Chrysaloid. While you’ve gone toe-to-toe with some giant bosses already – you’ve never faced anything quite as angry as the Chrysaloid so far. This is a multi-phased battle, just like the Molten Acari at the top of the volcano, and requires some careful tinkering with your loadout to defeat. At first, because its attacks are so different from the other enemies in Outriders, it can feel like the Chrysaloid is pretty unfair – but once you…
