How to Defeat the Giant Squid in Dave the Diver

Dave the Diver has received much love from the gaming community even in its early access which opened two weeks ago on October 27.

It is a pixel-style Marine Adventure where you are in the Shoes of Dave who explores the ocean deep by day and has a Sushi Business by night.

It plays similarly to feeding frenzy or hungry shark world with a mix of shop simulation as well as a few Rpg elements on the side.

Don’t let the retro-style graphics fool you though, the game is rich in content and worth the price of $19.99 on Steam.

Today, we are going to guide you on how to defeat one of the Blue Deep’s Boss Monsters, The Giant Squid in Dave the Diver.

You don’t need to have high-level equipment to defeat the giant squid. It’s one of the first bosses you encounter in the game and is fairly easy to defeat as long as you study its attack pattern.

Equip your best harpoon gun and harpoon tip for this mission and make sure you have enough oxygen before going down to its lair.

Giant Squid Attack Pattern

As you draw near its lair, the giant squid will launch two of its tentacles and try to block or hit you. You can easily detect where the tentacles will appear since the area will form bubbles before the tentacles lash out.

Stick to the middle of the screen and keep yourself moving forward. Once the bubbles appear, dash out of the way or navigate out of their way and continue when it retracts its tentacles.

Damaging the Boss

Once you reach its lair, the Boss will be on the lower right of the screen. Position yourself a full length of your harpoon trajectory and launch one directly into its eye.

Launching the harpoon far from its effective range won’t damage the Giant Squid and going too close will leave you vulnerable.

Second Attack Pattern

Second Attack Pattern

If you are too late to line up your shots, the Giant Squid will spew black ink at you. While the ink is relatively harmless, the knockback will push you away from the area.

Navigate your way outside its lair. If you get stuck on the walls it will leave you vulnerable to its tentacle attacks afterward.

Third Attack Pattern

If you manage to hit its eye, black ink will flow out of the Giant Squid and covers its eye. When this happens, swim away from the area because it will club you with its tentacle as retaliation and spew ink and knock you back against the wall.

Continue dodging its attacks and hit the boss in the eye, after two to three hits, the monster will be defeated and you can continue with the story.
