General Traunt Guide
General Traunt has a shield and a health bar. His weak spot is the canister that’s on his back. While you can hit it during a frontal assault, you can easily hit it when you attack from the back.
Like every other boss, you got to keep moving. Watch out for the barriers that General Traunt summons and the orbs that fall from the sky.
If a direct attack doesn’t work, you can also use the side lanes for a tactical approach.
His attacks are shock and corrosive based. A transformer shield would be very useful.
