Cauldron XI Override. Bellowbacks are deceptively easy machines that come in two varieties, a fire one and a freeze one. Both are the same in terms of moves, although they obviously have different strengths and weaknesses. Both Bellowbacks can spit a ball of their respective element at you from afar, which has some splash damage and at medium range, they have a breath attack, similar to a flamethrower. If you’re up close, they can spin around while breathing their element. They also have two melee attacks, a charge similar to many other machines and a lunge.

Naturally, Fire Bellowbacks are weak to freeze, and Freeze Bellowbacks are susceptible to fire. While you can pelt them with their respective weakness, there is an easier way to take them down. Both sets of Bellowbacks have a Cargo Sac on their back, as well as a Gullet underneath their neck. Hitting these with enough damage will make them explode and cause major damage to the Bellowback, as well damage other enemies around them (and apply the respective elemental ailment). The Gullet is a little harder to hit, but both are easy enough and puncturing both will leave the Bellowback with little health left.
