The Dreadnought Hiveguard is an interrupted progression in the Dreadnought metamorphosis. Currently R&D is not in agreement on what the final form would be like but everyone agrees that it is bad enough. Besides its own attacks, the Hiveguard is able to summon reinforcements to aid it in battle. Previously unknown to us, these new Glyphids have been dubbed the Sentinels and they are very mobile and aggressive. The Hiveguard is slower than the basic Dreadnought buit it has even better survivability, exposing its vulnerable areas only occasionally and being completely immune to damage at all other times. Engage with extreme caution and plenty of ammunition.
~ Miner's Manual Description

The Dreadnought Hiveguard is a hostile boss Creature encountered on Hoxxes. It has a 1 in 3 chance to spawn when the first Glyphid Cocoon is broken in the Elimination gamemode, where it will begin attacking the Dwarves once it spawns. It also has a very rare chance to spawn in place of a Swarm in other mission types.

The Hiveguard has a very spiky appearance, with a unique feature of dual claws on each front leg. It is slightly larger than the standard Dreadnought, and has 4 huge teeth as part of its mouth.

Similarly to its other Dreadnought counterparts, the Hiveguard is heavily armored and has a variety of means to combat the Dwarves. However, it differs in the fact that it is not nearly as aggressive or fast, but features a larger number of obstacles that the Dwarves must deal with in order to damage its main health pool. These obstacles include a sizeable number of hostile minions called Glyphid Sentinels that will assist the Hiveguard in dealing with players.

When it spawns, the Hiveguard will be accompanied by several Sentinels that will begin going after the Dwarves. These sentinels are slightly larger than a Glyphid Grunt and have similar stats and behavior to the Glyphid Grunt Guard. Once all the Sentinels have been killed, the Hiveguard will roar and expose three glowing protrusions that can be attacked. After all three protrusions have been destroyed, the Hiveguard will roar again and expose its main abdomen which is what players must attack in order to deal damage to its main health pool. The abdomen's shell will close back up after a certain amount of time has passed or a substantial amount of damage has been dealt, at which point another wave of Sentinels will appear, thus repeating the cycle of obstacles that must be dealt with until the Hiveguard's main health pool is completely drained.

The Hiveguard itself has a few basic combat moves like Slash and Bite, along with some ranged attacks. Its Fire Mortar will launch damaging fireballs at players, while the Rock Burst will create several explosive rocks that is launched in various directions. As with all Dreadnought variants, the Hiveguard is capable of digging through terrain in order to reach the Dwarves more easily. The Glyphid Sentinels are also capable of digging to their targets.

Tips

  • When the Hiveguard is open to attack, kill it by calling a resupply, as it stands completely still while vulnerable.
  • The Sentinels drop a pool of sticky goo when killed, which slows you down similar to the Mactera Goo Bomber.
  • Keep it in open areas, as the weakspot can be hidden in the wall sometimes.
  • Explosives and weapons with a large area of effect are very effective for quickly damaging all 3 protrusions at once.
  • Pickaxe Power Attacks are a risky but powerful move for dealing lots of damage to the protrusions and abdomen. Serrated Edge is recommended if you plan to attack it this way, and Berzerker can be used to chain lots of attacks in a row.
