The Dweller-In-Darkness is the first big foe that you have to defeat in Guardians of the Galaxy. The huge squid-like demon will be recognizable to some of the more dedicated Marvel fans out there. Dweller-In-Darkness has a long history in Marvel comics and, without delving too deeply into the realm of spoilers, has made an appearance in the MCU. In Guardians of the Galaxy, the Dweller-In-Darkness is the pet of Lady Hellbender that she sets on the Guardians. So, let’s find out how to take down the massive demon and escape from Lady Hellbender.
How To Defeat The Dweller-In-Darkness In Guardians of the Galaxy
Although the Dweller-In-Darkness looks to be completely overwhelming, there are a few key things that players need to do to defeat the demon in Guardians of the Galaxy. While the Dweller is floating ahead of the Guardians of the Galaxy, you need to use your element guns to stagger the boss. Focus on one tentacle at a time while they are flailing. The Dweller will inevitably bring them down to try and swipe the Guardians but he will also bring them down to rest. When he does this you’re going to want to unleash all of the Guardians’ abilities on the same tentacle at the same time. With Groot, make sure you are using his rooting ability as it will keep the tentacles held down longer.
As you do more damage to the tentacles of the Dweller-In-Darkness, Gamora will be able to slice them off one at a time. You will know it’s time when the Y/Triangle button appears on the tentacle. Make sure to keep a look out for it because you can miss it. As soon as you see it press the button and have Gamora chop off the tentacle completely. Simply rinse and repeat until all four tentacles are dealt with.
Once all four tentacles are gone the Dweller-In-Darkness will be forced to use a ranged attack to try and defeat the Guardians. He will fire minions at you which you will need to deal with. Occasionally, glowing red spots will appear that will have the Y/Triangle button over them. Star-Lord can freeze these to create objects for Drax to hurl at the massive beast. After a few of these, the Y/Triangle button will appear over the Dweller’s head. Press that and Gamora can take him down and end the fight.
Congratulations! You just defeated the Dweller-In-Darkness in Guardians of the Galaxy!
