A writhing tower of flesh and gristle, the Jugulus lurks beneath the surface and emerges to launch streams of organic projectiles from its wide maw.

The Deimos Jugulus is a towering stationary Infestation b.svgInfested enemy that pops up out of the ground around the Cambion Drift, Deimos.


Behavior[edit | edit source]

The Deimos Jugulus hides underground until a player is nearby in which their upper body emerges. They attack by spitting a glob of mass from its maw and shooting bone glaives from its neck that deal Slash b.svg Slash damage. Occasionally they also shoot spikes from the ground where the player is standing on, staggering them. After taking a considerable amount of damage, the Jugulus will retreat underground and relocate somewhere away from the player.

After not taking damage for 10 seconds, the Jugulus will start to regenerate 2% of max health per second.

Damage Resistance[edit | edit source]

Deimos Jugulus possess DR that scales depending on your weapon's DPS excluding Critical Hits. DPS is calculated by:

Critical Hits are applied after DR is calculated. Additionally, the average DPS is calculated using Health Modifiers and is quantized.

A graph is available here: https://www.desmos.com/calculator/htrjngyeyb

For Proc Damage, Critical Hits are taken into account.

Where the Proc Damage is the per tick Damage of the corresponding Proc, with Health/Shield/Armor Modifiers taken into account. Note that unlike the DPS controller for normal Damage, the one for Proc Damage takes Critical Hits into account. For Heat Procs, the Proc Damage in the above formula is the accumulated value of all the previous Heat Procs.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • All of the Jugulus's attacks seem to count as melee, reducing the effectiveness of abilities that protect against projectiles.
  • Has immunity to Viral b.png Viral status.
  • Snipers appear to do more damage to the lower section of the Jugulus.
  • Percentage damage dealt by Reave130xDark.png Reave is significantly reduced.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Deimos Jugulus was first revealed in TennoCon 2020 under the name Infested Bone Blade.
