Cannon fodder: Its a staple of the genre. But with Dungeon Defenders II, were shaking things up a bit. Weve added several unique, specialized enemies to the Old Ones armies. This month Id like to introduce you to one of those enemies: The Lightning Bug.
The Lightning Bug is an airborne enemy. Its a tiny creature--hard to see and even harder to hit. Dont let it catch you unaware, though. It still packs quite a punch! When a Lightning Bug approaches, it begins to charge an attack. Once fully charged, it unleashes a bolt of lightning that devastates multiple targets.
Like all of our enemies, the Lightning Bug has three tiers of progression. It starts its life as a tiny flying grub and eventually becomes a fearsome wasp-like creature. Advanced tiers are faster, stronger, and harder to kill. Theyre capable of inflicting massive, widespread damage with their charge attack.
While they prefer to wreak havoc on defenses and objectives, Lightning Bugs also have an element of unpredictability. Theyve been known to focus their attention on players when provoked.
The Lightning Bug isnt ready to come out of its cocoon just yet, but there are plenty of fearsome new enemies waiting in the wings. Well share another with you next month. Until then, keep an eye on the forums as well as Facebook and Twitter for more information on when you can see them in action.
That's all for now, Defenders! What do you think of our temporary name for this little fellow? Leave a comment below with an electrifying name for our newest enemy!
