Rockbugs are Mimics that camouflage themselves to hide amongst the floor debris. There are several types of rockbugs, but they all use the same tactic. They are fairly easy to kill, but annoying if you don't see them and land on top of one.


Tips & AttacksEdit

Rockbugs are invincible while they are not moving. Attack when they stand up and start moving.


Stand next to the Rockbug when it is not moving. Use the Steamshot on it. When it starts moving again, it will instantly take damage.


When it is moving, go next to it and attack or divebomb from above. You can usually kill it in one hit.


Crouch next to it and attack. Jump over it and attack down if it gets too close. You can also simply swing into it, if it's standing, for an easy kill.
