Lahamu is the queen of the Aliens in the Mothership, found just above the entrance to the area behind several Forcefields. She is the eldest daughter of Tiamat and stole the Original Man to clone him into armies of Shopkeepers.

She is always found just below the Plasma Cannon, although it is not strictly necessary to kill her in order to take it.

Behavior

Lahamu is fully immobile, relying completely on her psychic powers, Forcefields, and Proto Shopkeepers to defend her.

The Queen attacks by placing a targeting reticle over the Spelunker, which appears whenever the Spelunker comes within her long range. Her eye will glow yellow when she does this.
She will zap the location it indicates after a short delay, which will do ten points of damage and stun the Spelunker if they are hit.

Killing Lahamu will permanently disable all Forcefields in The Mothership.

Strategy

  • Due to the immense threat of a possible successful clone of a Shopkeeper holding a Shotgun coming from a spawner beside Lahamu, they should be destroyed before attempting to kill her.
  • As the reticle does not move once it has been placed, Lahamu's attacks can be avoided simply by moving out of the way, and not standing in any one spot for too long.
  • The player can kill her with five Shotgun blasts, two Bombs, or the Plasma Cannon. The Freeze Ray will kill her instantly if you can damage her while she is frozen.
    • The player should destroy both Forcefields protecting her if they plan to use either the Plasma Cannon or Shotgun, as reflected shots may come back to hit them.
  • The Teleporter or Telepack may be used to telefrag her into chunks.
  • The player can also use Spike Shoes by jumping between her and the ceiling, which is normally a one block gap. The player and their scaling Spike Shoes damage will kill her in as little as 4 stomps.

The Alien Queen is the boss of the Mothership, found at the top of the level behind several layers of Forcefields.

She is always found guarding a Plasma Cannon, although it is not strictly necessary to kill her in order to take it.

As for many bosses, killing the Alien Queen unlocks a Deathmatch Arena.

Behaviour

The Alien Queen is fully immobile, relying completely on her psychic powers, automated defences and smaller minions to defend her.

She attacks by placing a targeting reticle over the Spelunker, which appears whenever the Spelunker comes within its very long range.
It will zap the location it indicates after a short delay, which will do ten points of damage and stun the Spelunker if they are hit.

Strategy

As the reticle does not move once it has been placed, the Alien Queen's attacks can be avoided simply by moving out of the way, and not standing in any one spot for too long.

She has twenty hit points, and thus the fastest ways of killing her are with five Shotgun blasts, two Bombs, or the Plasma Cannon. The Freeze Ray will kill her instantly if you can damage her while she is frozen.

Alternatively, the Teleporter is effective when used offensively against the Alien Queen, as being telefragged will kill her instantly - but you have to be careful or you may teleport into the wall near her, killing yourself instead.

Another trick is to use the Spike Shoes by jumping between her and the ceiling, which is a one block gap most times. Keep moving to avoid her targets and she'll die fast.
