Description[edit | edit source]

The Hoverer Queen is a heavily armored boss level lume. When it enters the stage, the map will indicate its location with a medium skull icon. It attacks with a wave similar to normal Hoverers however with an additional effect: if there are any towers in range, they will be powered down for a few seconds before rebooting. As with common Hoverers she has an impenetrable frontal armor, but smaller weakspot on her back.

Gameplay Notes[edit | edit source]

Tower Strategies[edit | edit source]

  • Intentionally getting the Queen's attention in order to make her turn her back to your towers is a valid strategy. However care should be taken as her attack will momentarily disable any towers in the vicinity and possibly create a gap in the player's defenses allowing others enemies bypass them.
  • Just like normal Hoverers, the Queen is susceptible to Mines.
  • One of the most effective towers against the Queen is the Drone.
  • Setting up a Focus to shoot into her back as she attacks the core can result in a lot of damage dealt to the boss.

Player Strategies[edit | edit source]

  • The Queen's shockwave radius is larger than a normal Hoverer and throws the player just as far, if there are pits nearby caution should be taken when approaching the Queen.
  • If no towers are close by, provoking the Hoverer Queen into attacking to stall it is recommended.
  • The Drone Launcher is very effective against the Hoverer Queen as drones ignore armor.
