The Cycle: Frontier understands that and presents its players with a wide variety of monsters to deal with.

The Cycle: Frontier Monsters
The Cycle: Frontier features a wide range of monsters that you will have to deal with while making your way through the rough terrain of an unknown world. Nothing is perfect and the same thing translates for the monsters in The Cycle: Frontier.

This Hercules-looking monster is a big, heavy, and thick-armored monster with a giant health pool. Like most monsters, the crusher has two types of attacks. The first one is when you are in close proximity and the crusher will try to punch you.
The second one is used when you are a certain distance from the monster. The monster will gather a bunch of boulders and will launch them at you. This monster although has thick skin and armor but also has a few weaknesses.
The first weak spot is its ankles. If you shoot it at its ankles, it will stagger, and you can deal more damage when it’s down. The second weak spot is the upper portion of the spine which can hurt the monster a lot.

These tiny green insects might not be that intelligent, but they sure can be deadly. The ticks are extremely conscious of their territory and don’t allow any prospect to come near it. They are always on the watch for enemies coming close to their area.
Once they locate a target, they will make a shrieking sound and will run towards you and upon closing the distance, it will detonate itself and when it explodes it will release a poisonous gas that will deal tons of damage.
Ticks are not hard to kill, all you have to do is to shoot them once and they will explode but be sure to shoot them at a distance from yourself, so you don’t get caught in the explosion.
The Ticks will drop the following items.

The second one is used when the distance is closed, and it will jump forward while trying to use its claws to cut open your skin. You can shoot it in the face or in the belly to kill it as these are the most sensitive spots.
The Rattler will drop the following items.
- Rattler Skin
