The Hornet Swarm is one of the hardest bosses in the game because if you fail you’ll have to replay the game to fight it again. Here’s how to defeat it.

First off, if you want to retry the boss fight make sure to quit out before it saves. The fight takes place entirely on a mounted cannon. Each shot needs to be reloaded and you must aim at the top portion of the hornets to land a hit.

The key here is to aim high and dodge accordingly. You can take out more than 1 hornet with properly placed shots but avoiding the creatures is key by moving up and down. The creatures will track your movement but they’re slow so moving according to the speed of the creature is key. Once enough are killed the battle will be over.

If you happen to die the game will continue as you drop into a pit. This alternate take is linked to an achievement but you don’t need to complete it to earn it.
