The unkillable enemies in the Destiny beta have been killed.

"In the Destiny Beta there are enemies which have their levels marked as “???” when you shoot them the damage doesn’t register and instead the word “Immune” pops up. Because of that many players have assumed the enemies to be immortal, but it terns out they are not."-Takuchat"

That's one of the things I didn't like about the Destiny Beta: Some enemies just take wayyyyy too long to kill and it's usually a very boring fight.

I like the Beta for the most part, but taking 10-15 minutes to kill that 6-legged tank/thing, and after that another 20+ minutes orso to shoot a big giant eye... it just gets boring.

KingKelloggTheWH1481d ago

I can take them out in 3-5 with a good team

Yi-Long1481d ago

I'm only level 7, so perhaps we didn't have the right weapons and skills yet. I don't know. It was a bit of a chore.

NewMonday1481d ago


you weren't supposed to be able to kill it at that point, but you applied patience and persistence and beat the system.

you are awesome and don't know it yet.

Yi-Long1481d ago

Actually, I'm very well aware I'm awesome. I just didn't know it was the case in this situation :P

But how come I wasn't supposed to beat these enemies yet? The mission was open to me and I could fight him. Pretty sure the 'squad' that was with me was level 7 or 8 or something like that.

Kosmacz1481d ago

Yep, true. I just killed them with 2 other ppl, wasn't that long or hard (5 minutes max i think)

thorstein1481d ago (Edited 1481d ago )

I've beaten a tank with just myself, a Cydonia AR (62 dmg) my sniper rifle (45) and my rocket launcher. Find the weak spots and hit them hard.

It takes awhile but I have no problem with difficult bosses being in the game. What the video is about is that you there is a basement near where you spawn in Old Russia and there are enemies down there that just don't die.

redwin1481d ago

My favorite part of the game are the big bosses, my least favorite is the capture the flag wanna be game in the crucible. I was not going to buy this game, I was going to get halo but the beta changed my mind and the big bosses did it for me. In my opinion, capture the flag is the weakest part of the game so far.

DarthZoolu1481d ago

Purple eyes drop fast if you shoot the pupil, we drop the spiders in about 3 mins. We also killed a ?? But it took 3 warlocks we just dropped the grenade directly on it every time it cools down, it still rough tho.

redwin1481d ago

There are 2 guards, I think because it shows a ????, in Russia in the train station underground that are impossible to kill. Btw, has anyone tried to talk during the game ? I hear no one.

Devil walkers weakness is the yellow spots on his leg.When he falls down his head falls off and his necks core is shown.Shoot it there.If you try hitting it anywhere else he will be immune to those shots while he;s down.

I thought this was about that damn ogre on the on the cliffside.I hate that clown.

Yi-Long1481d ago

I knew about the yellow spots on his legs being his weak points, cause I attack it from the little pass-through on the side, cause pretty much nothing else comes in there ...and I know about the exposed neck, but even when shooting those weak spots constantly still means it takes a very long time, and that just got boring very quickly.

The Eye you need to shoot in the middle for the most damage, but that's the same story: It takes VERY long, and it's just a chore, because the tactic stays the same.

I don't mind difficult bosses (Finished Ninja Gaiden, and loved it...), but there's no variety in battling these we saw in the Beta.

christian hour1481d ago


It takes a long time at first, like most "raids" in an mmo, but as your skills increase after the level cap and you start getting better equipment, and assuming the rest of your fireteam is up to scratch, you can take out the Devil Walker in 3 minutes tops, and the Big Purple Eye Thingy takes even less.

Don't let the initial struggle put you off, once you perfect taking these things down it becomes a lot of fun :)

Mr-Dude1481d ago

I always push that ugly orge of the cliffside with the sparrow... Does this also count as a kill?

morganfell1481d ago


These are not bosses. They were meant as impasse points on the maps.

Yi-Long1481d ago

@Christian: I understand your point, that it's an MMO thing, but I'm playing a game, so even if it takes a long time, I would like it to be entertaining and fun and challenging. The mid-bosses I was talking about are pretty boring to take down, so what makes it even worse is that it takes so long. There's no real strategy used, or variety in how it changes tactics during our attack on it, etc etc. It's just shooting from behind safe cover. There's no circling him for a certain benefit, or using objects in the environment against it as weapons, or whatever.

There's no 'depth' to those (mid) bossfights I fought in the beta, so it's 10-15 minutes of doing the exact same thing, and TO ME, that's boring. Others might like it.

Jvaughn6611481d ago

Found that ogre the other day, and me and a buddy went back to get the loot and dead ghost out of the cave. When we got their though we found a knight instead, and i Knocked off the cliff with my sparrow. It disintegrated instantly.

Elwenil1481d ago (Edited 1481d ago )

That hole in the wall usually has a Hallowed Knight in it, but when the battle between the Hive and Fallen above ramps up, the Knight turns into a Hallowed Ogre. Both can be knocked off the edge with a bit of persistence.

That's why you are always looking for better weapons. Learning tactics and playing with people who know what they need to do :)

EDIT: Both these bosses are easy and fast to kill with some good players that know what to do.

Hellsvacancy1481d ago

You don't need to learn tactics, "just keep shooting, just keep shooting"

ITPython1481d ago

On explore with 5-6 players and one of those random 'events', I've seen that spider thing get taken down within 2 minuets. However on Strike with 3 total players, it can take way too long most of the time (20-30 mins).

My guess is that these types of enemies are meant for much more upgraded players with better weapons/armor etc.

moujahed1481d ago

No disrespect bro but if it takes you 20mins to kill Septik Prime your garbage. Me and my friends which were lvl 6 defeated him on lvl8 difficulty in less than 10mins. The DevilWalker can be beaten quicker too you need people who know what their doing and position themselves on both his sides so he can keep turning back and forth. Don't believe me?? If your on PS4 add me. Kahotep.

JorboTron1481d ago

@ moujahed
Garbage sounds a little disrespectful tbh. Also, no disrespect but YOUR grammar is garbage, however YOU'RE a fine modern gentlemen. Good day!

moujahed1481d ago


You just ethered me. Lol! I've already graduated and completed my major English courses which gave me a pretty decent GPA leading to a very well paying job. So idgaf if my English when commenting on this site. You got the message which was my aim. I love you tho.

Hellsvacancy1481d ago (Edited 1481d ago )

I agree, although I DO like Destiny and will more than likely buy it but it does suffer from "Bored"erlands syndrome

I'm not into spamming the same enemy with attacks until it dies, that's part of the reason why I didn't like Borderlands and Skyrim

I like to feel like i'm actually doing damage to the enemy, not just waiting for his bar to deplete

Neixus1481d ago

When you mention Borderlands, how come people praise Destiny so much, when it's basically a clone of Borderlands?

It's pretty much the same, except it has better customization and stuff, which i like.

I'm not saying it's bad, i like the game really much, but it is overhyped.

Hellsvacancy1481d ago

I agree, other than the humour (sometimes) I didn't like Borderlands, it's one of the most repetitive games i've ever played "yay a new gun............ that's the same as the last one I found"

admiralvic1481d ago

@ Neixus

Don't forget that Borderlands popular series in it of itself and I imagine some people enjoy the serious tone and more realistic graphics to the humorous tone and stylized graphics of Borderlands.

"It's pretty much the same, except it has better customization and stuff, which i like."

Probably the biggest difference is how PVP is handled and how that mode appeals to people looking for competitive multiplayer. I also recall PVP being one of the biggest complaints people had with Borderlands, so this makes sense that it would get some hype for that alone.

e-p-ayeaH1481d ago

That´s fun imo its like an MMO boss fight.

Legacy2121481d ago

Yea I really dislike those spiders when I see them it really turns me off. They take WAAAAAY too long to kill. My friend wants me to help him beat devils lair and I refuse to put another hour into 2 boss fighs

joab7771481d ago

What? Really? Everyone is entitled but thats co op and dynamic events....and I dunno, most bosses in every game ever made.

This instance is simply b/c their level is much higher than our beta cal. And an rpg, well, a good one, has enemies that guage your strength. At some point u will have the gear to eat him for breakfast.

TAURUS-5551481d ago

the only thing that matters is that PS4 version looks better

Clown_Syndr0me1481d ago

I found that too
Long boss fights on MMORPGs are usually good. Spending an hour on a boss in WoW for example can be great fun, as you have such a range of skills/abilities and everyone has a role. 40 man raid teams where everyone has to work together is amazing. However Destiny doesn't pull that off. Its just 3-4 people shooting at the boss until it dies basically.

SixZeroFour1481d ago

not completely true, i think the problem is the 3 player (and possibly 6 player in later levels) fireteam do have to work together partially and coordinate when players are down to revive or stay alive

this also brings up another problem in terms of "events"...bungie limited chatting within fireteams, which means during "events" you cant even properly coordinate with the players...thats why it seems like its just every constantly shooting until the enemy is down. EVERY mmo is like that for enemies, keep attacking till its down, but its the COMMUNICATION that makes it seem like its a team effort and this is the major problem with destiny. and considering how good bungie was with halo and communication, i cant believe how badly their choices were for this game...i AM however, liking the game

wsoutlaw871481d ago

I actually thought those big battles made the game more fun and i am looking forward to the more challenging ones in the full game. Why would I just want a bunch of the same easy to kill enemies all the time. I like the variety and needing some team work

Yi-Long1481d ago (Edited 1481d ago )

I never said I wanted 'easy' to kill enemies. These enemies in this Beta were 'easy', in terms of skill/tactic, but they were just a chore to take down. It's easy, but it takes a very long time of doing the exact same thing.

I prefer hard bosses which change form and tactics and weapons throughout the battle, so you constantly have to adjust, so it becomes a matter of skill, not patience.

wsoutlaw871481d ago

well you are only at level 8. I wouldnt really expect it to be a representation of the entire game

Rebo001481d ago

Just to make sure you did shoot its legs out first and then shoot the exposed brain?

Iamnemesis48801481d ago

When you level up your class and guns you can take the orbs down real fast. And on the one your one about a good fire team will beast it quick.

Rocky51481d ago

I was level 4 when I beat one of the big beatle things, there was me & my cousin rank 3 tackling it & it took like 20 mins to beat the damn thing & loads of deaths lol, but we got there in the end & got bugger all for killing it :-/

whybag1481d ago

The difference between playing with randoms, and playing with 3 (even halfway competent) people on chat is staggering. I don't even try to pug Devil's Lair anymore. I'm tired of getting morons that just run random directions and die every 15 seconds. Did you know there is a "Medic" medal you can earn inside? Neither did I until I got it. I must have revived those guys 15 times or so.


I killed both bosses solo when my team went AFC. Took around 5 minutes a piece. Destiny has a lot of depth, you learn as you go.

I can take out with just 2 good players!

KingKelloggTheWH1481d ago

It only allows three for that mode?

joab7771481d ago

As one fireteam...yeah. But u can group with others. And most importantly...remember this. Voice your opinion, Bungie could change it and will change alot over the years.

Snookies121480d ago

Not entirely true, my friend and I had a guy ditch on us and left us with 2 people fighting. To be fair, you could take the tank out solo. It would just take a bit of work.

no_more_heroes1481d ago

Ran into these when I played on my friend's ps4 last weekend. Got merked, got the hell out of dodge with our tails between our legs lol!

KingKelloggTheWH1481d ago

I was to hurt..

ifistbrowni1481d ago (Edited 1481d ago )

This doesn't even look hard, just long and boring. They died like 20-30 (as a team) during that 2 minute session, but the enemy hadn't recovered health or anything..

Now, if someone ends up killing it with 2-3 (as a team) deaths and within 5-10 minutes, i will shut up. Til then, this video seems to be nothing special.

They probably sat there for 20 minutes shooting that thing and dying 100 times.

trywizardo1481d ago

there should be an awesome loot with it , or at least an achievement ...

Shakengandulf1481d ago

Why should you get an achievment, when you come back here in the full game, lvl 20, you are going to kill him with one sniper shot.
