Cult of the Lamb Leshy boss guide

Since the Leshy boss fight is your first true test in Cult of the Lamb, it’s a good way to familiarize yourself with how these bouts usually go. This includes abilities/projectiles that cover most of the screen, turning it into “bullet hell mode,” as well as the difficulty ramping up when the boss’ HP is below 50%.

Here are some of Leshy’s attacks:

  • Globule Vomit – Lobs multiple green orbs that cover small sections of the arena. Make sure you stay away from the black spots since those are where they’ll drop.
  • Ripper Quake – Multiple stalagmites will erupt from the ground. They usually have a diagonal pattern going away from the boss. You can dodge these by moving sideways.
  • Cascading Quake – Similar to the above, the boss will cause several stalagmites to erupt. The difference here is that these cascade in a circular pattern. You’ll want to time your dodge right so that you don’t get hit.
  • Worm Summon – Leshy will summon multiple worm-like mobs. Destroy all the mobs to make him reappear once more.

When you’re finished with the Leshy boss fight in Cult of the Lamb, you’ll receive your first Heart of a Heretic. This can be used for a permanent Red Crown upgrade.

For more tips, you can head over to our Crown Upgrades guide. And, if you’ve progressed further, you can take a look at the Heket boss fight that takes place in Anura.

Note: Similar to other bosses, Leshy’s defeat will allow you to continue clearing his zone (Darkwood). You’ll also get to battle a unique miniboss for Eye of the Witness items.

Cult of the Lamb is available via Steam.
