The minions of the Corrupted Master Controller include Corrupted Avatars and Dinotars. They will sometime crowd the fighting arena and can disrupt the flow of players collecting data keys.
One player will be dedicated to the eradication and control of Corrupted Avatars and Dinotars. There are several attack drones in the fighting arena that will attack from above. You can easily shoot them with a sniper rifle or pistol.
Attack drones will give you elements that can be used as ammo in the Tek weapon and Tek Rifle. A corrupted Master Controller will shoot fire beams that will deal damage to players.
Any attack on the corrupted Master Controller can be blocked with a shield. You can deactivate the shield by collecting the Data Keys and delivering them to the codebreaker terminal.
For the shield to remain deactivated, you must constantly deliver the data keys to the codebreaker. As the fight gets close to the final stages, there will be more dangerous minions and attack drones spawned in the arena.
It’s best to bring a lot of dinos into the fight. You should also remain close to them so that they will fight all the dangers that appear. Try to remain in the middle of the arena. If you are in the corner, there are more possibilities that you will be corned by minions.
Speed is key in defeating Corrupted Master Controller. This is because of the high spawn rate of Corrupted Avatars and Dinotars. They will easily overrun you if you are not on top of them.

Spinosaurus is a deadly predator due to its sharp conical teeth and overall agility. They can walk on two legs as well as four when needed. Spinosaurus has a high attacking DPS power that can easily kill the Corrupted Avatars and Dinotars.
Spinosaurus has more overall health than the rex. It can also travel long distances at high speed when chasing the Corrupted Avatars and Dinotars. The only downside to Spinosaurus is that it cannot go long distances in water. It can also get stuck in the rocks and trees.
Yutyrannus is a carnivorous creature that has excellent offensive and defensive fighting abilities. The mighty roar of the Yutyrannus can induce fear in the Corrupted Avatars and Dinotars. This will in turn make fighting easier for other dinos.
If the roar is fully induced in the opposing creature, it can force them to run away and flee from you. Yutyrannus also has good stats that are also useful in the Corrupted Master Controller fight.
Reaper King is an aggressive creature that can easily be found all over the lunar biome. They can ambush the Corrupted Avatars by burrowing underground. From their tails, Reaper King can also shoot acidic projectiles.
