The Dweller is the final boss in act 1 (Story Mode).




The Dweller is found in the Dweller cave in the overworld.


Once you activate The Dweller encounter The Dweller will start moving towards the player, crushing any machinery that comes to close. The Dweller will alternate between two different attacks:

  • Launch: The Dweller starts moving backwards and, after a short delay, The Dweller will launch itself towards the player doing massive damage.
  • Cave-in: The Dweller yells, triggering a massive cave-in in front of it.
