About this mod

Welcome to my 4th new Boss mod! This boss is located in Cairo. Hound of the Greek God Hephaestus. Covered in gold. Defeat the boss to gain new standalone Hard Target sniper with 4 legendaries, unique new Hephaestus Plates that dont count as armor slot, plus Hephaestus barrel that massively boosts Hard Target at Weapons Workbench!

Hephaestus Hound Boss Mod

Welcome everyone to the 4th boss mod! You voted on Reddit for Terrormorph boss, so I was brainstorming.. and I got this idea to transform Terrormorph into a Greek Mythology creature that is massive and has some lore stuff into it, so here we have the guard dog "Hound" of Greek Forge God Hephaestus. I placed it into Egypt so it has some sense to it. 

What do you get with this mod? 
- New boss enemy to defeat
- New standalone version of Hard Target (this one has 4 legendary effects)
- Boss drops new unique compoment: "Hephaestus Shards" 
You use those shards to upgrade Hard Target weapons with "Hephaestus Barrel" a gold glowing barrel that massively increases range of Hard Target
- Boss chest ( 3 random ranged weapons & 3 random armors )
- Hephaestus Armor Plates (this is new standalone armor that should work as apparel but doesnt take slot) so you can use helmet, body, boostpack, apparel + Hephaestus Plates!

Boss characteristics:
- Immune to Anti gravity field
- Has 90 000 HP
- 2000 armor
- Should cast poison cloud, cyst and mind control
- Will burrow often

if you want a fair fight, fight him on land. If you shoot from pyramid he cannot climb due to no navmesh so its kinda like a cheat. He does massive melee damage, so if you get hit you will die. DON'T GET HIT! 
Fight should be interesting, if it's done "glitchless". 
I wanted to make him more ranged threat but stuff just didnt work, so unfortunately it is what it is :/


Last 4 months I've been putting a lot of time and effort into creating mods for the game, and I'm really enjoying the process. I published 138 Starfield mods! It now feels like a job! If you appreciate my work and would like to support me, consider making a donation. Every little bit helps! Thank you!
