Final boss fight location
Hive Mind is the game's final boss. You have to face this huge creature in chapter 12 - Dead Space. The fight with the creature will take place after transporting the Marker, meeting with Daniels and returning to the Main Landing Pad.
You can and should prepare for the final battle. In the Living Quarters adjacent to the landing pad, you can find is a save station, a shop and a bench.
Description of the Hive Mind fight
You fight the Hive Mind on a medium-sized square arena. There are numerous loot chests on the landing pad - you can destroy them by yourself to retrieve the contents or wait for the boss to destroy them. Pick up items that you need - leave the rest. There is no point in filling the inventory with e.g. Stasis Kits.
In the first phase of the fight, the Hive Mind will have 5 orange glands exposed. Shoot them in any order to destroy them one by one.
The boss spits out cocoons that will land in various places across the arena. Avoid contact with them even when they are still flying towards the arena. You can destroy them with ranged attacks or stay away and wait for them to explode.
After destroying all the glands, a group of standard necromorphs will appear. Focus only on them, because the Hive Mind will not attack you in the meantime. Make sure to use Stasis and good weapons for short and medium distances.
In the second phase of the fight, the Hive Mind's weak point will be the chest glands. The problem is that they are revealed only for a short moment. Use powerful weapons and aim well so you destroy at least one gland in a single reveal.
The Hive Mind will launch attacks of its own after its chest is closed.
- Run zig-zag to avoid tentacle attacks. The tentacles will attack a few times in a row.
- Stay away from poisonous fumes. They always form a line and limit your space. Fortunately, they will disappear after some time.
In the final part of the battle, Isaac will be caught by one of the boss's tentacles. You must look for opportunities to shoot at the last orange gland. Dealing enough damage to it will lead to its destruction which means the battle is concluded.
Killing the boss is rewarded with the Mindless Prey trophy.
