The Beetle Guard is an Enemy introduced in Risk of Rain 2.


The Beetle Guard will usually first appear in the second level "Abandoned Aqueduct". They rise from the sand and approach the player at a fairly fast pace. If at a moderate distance form the player, they will smash one front-leg to the ground and create a shockwave of spiky rocks, heading straight towards them. If in melee-range, they will slam the ground with both front-legs and create a circular spiky shock that damages the players. This attack hits even behind the Beetle.

The Guard has a formidably high health, making them quite spongy to kill.

If the Beetle Guard spawns as an elite, both their attacks carry their elemental effect. This can ignite players far from the actual Beetle.
