How to beat the Chameleos

The Chameleos is not a very complicated enemy to kill, just annoying. It has very few physical attacks: a tail strike, a few head or wing strikes and that's it. Nothing you haven't seen many, many times before. Where things get complicated is that he is an expert in the art of camouflage and poisoning.

The majority of the Chameleos' attacks are attacks that shoot balls or clouds of poison. It can create a small area in front of it, or it can create a veritable poison arena around you, preventing you from escaping. The areas targeted by these poison clouds remain dangerous for a long time. In addition to these clouds, its mouth and abdomen release clouds of poison if you attack it while it is enraged. This means that you will need to have a good command of your filopter to dodge all this poison, or to have plenty of antidotes.

Another feature of the Chameleos is its ability to become almost invisible. This is usually not a problem to locate its position, since its eyes and horn still glow, but it makes predicting its attacks difficult. Fortunately, it becomes visible again after each attack. If the invisibility really bothers you, you can use a flash bomb to force him to reappear. Break his horn and he can't disappear again.
