Once you have done a couple of dives and have gotten used to the various mechanics of the game, you will be put up against different bosses. The Phantom Jellyfish is one of the bosses that you will encounter later on in the game and can be very tricky to defeat. In this Dave the Diver guide, we go over how you can defeat the Phantom Jellyfish boss.
Every boss in Dave the Diver has a special mechanic that you need to figure out, and when it comes to the Phantom Jellyfish encounter, you will not have access to your weapons. So you really need to know what to do.
Where To Find The Phantom Jellyfish Boss
You will encounter the Phantom Jellyfish boss during chapter six of Dave the Diver. You will need to activate three switches to get to the control room. Before you can activate the second switch, you will need to save the Beluga. After you do that, you can ride it to get past the currents. This is where you will encounter the Phantom Jellyfish.
How To Defeat The Phantom Jellyfish Boss In Dave The Diver
Since you will be riding the Beluga, you will not have access to your gear. You cannot use your weapons or anything in your inventory, and you must rely on the Beluga to deal damage.
Avoid The Brown Jellyfish
The Phantom Jellyfish is not going to be alone. It will summon minions to attack you. The brown Jellyfish are nasty since they explode. You need to move away from them to avoid taking damage. The Beluga can only take three hits. The number of Jellyfish that are summoned will increase as you progress through the encounter.
Avoid Getting Hit By The Green Projectiles
The Phantom Jellyfish will reveal its eye and shoot green projectiles at you. These are typically in a straight line, so they can be avoided easily. The number and speed of projectiles is going to increase as you deal damage to the boss.
Smash Into The Boss
To deal damage to the boss, you need to avoid the Jellyfish and projectiles while making your way closer to the boss. Once you are close enough, you need to smash into it with the Beluga to deal damage. You will need to repeat this process a couple of times to defeat the boss.
