Basic Info[]

Patient Note[]

This dossier section is intended to be an exact copy of what Dr. Sophia, the author of the Patient Notes has written. There may be some discrepancies between this text and the in-game creatures.

Argentustus Pt. Note (Mobile).png
Pre-exposure

Subject is aggressive to smaller prey and will fight even the largest of the Island predators if threatened. With the second-largest wingspan of the avaian creatures on the Island, the subject possesses powerful wing muscles, excellent lift speed, and incredible stamina. Subject is a carrion feeder, preferring to steal the remains from anothers kill than retrieve its own food.

Post-exposure

As with prior results, the subject is much larger than its Island counterpart, and the Element has only served to enhance the subjects naturally-powerful wing muscles, giving the subject enough strength to physically move an attacker away from them with a flap of its wings. The subject is also, quite literally, ablaze. Despite the natural flammability of its feathers, exposure to the Element appears to have caused the subject to develop a natural resistance to fire and the subject is wholly unfazed by the raging inferno that coats its body.

~ Dr. Sophia


Behavior[]

It is extremely aggressive and will begin to fly towards the player almost immediately upon entering the arena. Unlike other creatures, it will not flee when its health is low, and will instead fight until it is dead.

Appearance[]

The Argentustus has an enormous wingspan, far dwarfing that of an Argentavis or even a Quetzal. Its feathers are red and fiery and a fire burns on its head.

Color Scheme and Regions[]

The Argentustus always spawns with the same color scheme and has no color regions.

This means it is currently impossible to make alterations to the Argentustus's colors.

Combat[]

This section describes how to fight against the Argentustus.

General[]

Go on the biggest platform on the boss room and get as close to the Argentustus as possible for the least amount of knockback and pay attention to the Argentustus it will stop whenever it will do its gust attack so try to get as close to it as possible during that window of time.

Strategy[]

When you enter the arena make your way the the far left island. This position is important because the island has a small hill which can be used to stop the player from flying into the lava. Try to keep yourself directly in between the hill and the boss. If the boss uses its gust attack while above land, you can run right up against its legs to avoid the attack. Focus on dealing damage and keeping your position.

Weaponry[]

An assault rifle, tek rifle or a high damage pump action shotgun is the best option. Maybe also a compound bow with at least 500 damage (Aim for head as the boss has a headshot multiplier)

Dangers[]

The biggest danger in this fight is being knocked into the lava. The lava is an instant kill for even the strongest survivors. The argentustus will randomly use its "gust" attack, which knocks the player back. This knockback is substantial and can push you off your island and into the lava. This is your biggest threat.

Weakness[]

It has a large turning radius and is not that fast, so try to take advantage of that.

Spotlight[]

Notes/Trivia[]

  • Hardest boss in game along with Dodobitus
  • The boss once spawned as a low level Argentavis which could be knocked out but not tamed. This glitch was patched an hour after it was discovered.
  • The Argentustus has the rapid regeneration ability of the Argentavis. This can activate when it kills the Meganeuras that spawn in the arena.
