The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom The Flux Construct 2 boss is just one of three versions you’ll encounter as you play through the game. It is the most common world boss, each more difficult than the other. The middle kid of the group requires more strategy to defeat than the first but slightly less than the third. If it’s the first thing you’ve fought, you may be fighting for your money. Our guide tells you how to beat Flux Construct 2 DeadK.
How to beat Flux Construct 2 in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
I have covered how to beat flux construct 1 And flux construct 3 already, and while some of the same strategies apply, there are some key differences that make these fights relatively unique.
TotK Flux Construct 3 Boss Fight Tips
To beat Flux Construct 2 Tears of the Kingdom, you must damage the glowing green core cube that makes up his body. The difference from Flux Construct 1 is the way the boss attacks, as well as its significantly increased damage output and health pool.
You’ll need at least seven or eight hearts, as well as some defense-boosting food, to have the best chance of not getting shot and having to start the fight over. Here is how to improve your hearts if you don’t know how
The easiest way to detach the core is to pull it straight out of the body with Ultrahand. You can also remove other non-core blocks. However, if the boss regroups after being attacked or deconstructed, all of the dice will return, forcing you to remove them again. Pulling out the core requires a bit more aim, but if you’re like me (very stubborn), failure is still a good teacher.
You can also use arrows to deal enough damage to the core in other ways to cause that DeadK Flux Construct 2 Boss disintegrates. No matter how you do it, once the core is down you have about 10 seconds to hit it as far as possible before it reforms.
All Flux Construct 2 attacks and strategies in Tears of the Kingdom
As the boss’s opening attack, this attack breaks into component blocks and Flux Construct 2 charges at you. It hits the ground with its “hands”. Run sideways to avoid the damage, then charge back toward the core as it recovers on the ground.
At close to medium range, the boss raises his right arm and slams his “hand” down in a slightly less powerful attack than the Slam Rush. The windup head is quite long and the arm stays anchored to the ground making it easier to grab when the core is in the arm.
If Flux Construct 2 reforms while you’re near it, it will stomp 3 or 4 times, creating a small shockwave like the Slam Rush. As before, you can avoid the attack by running away. The construct can’t move too fast when stomping, allowing you to freely grab the core or attack if you keep your distance.
The DeadK Flux Construct 2 flies into the sky and forms a platform that throws blocks at you that honestly do ridiculous damage (this attack is Really annoying). In addition, there are two variants:
- One version shoots down five of his blocks at once.
- The other version does this in a sequence.
The sequence attack is easy to dodge: just run sideways until all five projectiles are fired. The simultaneous attack is much more difficult to avoid in my opinion.
The concurrent blocks have a minor but still noticeable amount of tracking. I died more times than I’d like to admit once I found out that this attack can be dodged just like the sequence. The key is that you have to move much faster. You could also run far enough to let the blocks run around you. Be sure to use Spring or Fan Zonain gadgets to fly into the air and attack from above.
The Flux Construct 2 forms into a giant cube and slowly rolls toward you. This attack isn’t dangerous from afar, but up close it can hit you with a single shot. The boss also tends to roll much faster as a block, requiring you to do more to keep your distance between the two of you.
That’s all you need to know to beat Flux Construct 2 Tears of the Kingdom. It’s far from the toughest fight in the game, but if you go into battle unprepared you run the risk of getting knocked out at least a couple of times.
