MapleStory Guide – Bigfoot

A relatively powerful boss added in the Crimsonwood Keep patch in ’08. A pain of a thing to kill, but really not too difficult when done right, even so; still a pain.

Boss info: Bigfoot is a pretty simple boss, it spawns in about 13 (roughly) different maps in Crimsonwood Forest. It has no real abilities and nothing much to look out for… except its ridiculously high touch damage. This beast will hit you for upwards of 12,000 damage, though funnily enough its magic “stomp” attack is completely harmless. It has several frames where it is “invincible” meaning your attacks will miss it completely, irritating, I know, but with that comes it’s biggest weakness.

If Bigfoot is pushed to either edge of the map, and I mean the very edge, it will get somewhat stuck. After you hit it, it’ll begin it’s knock back animation (assuming you hit it hard enough) which is unusually long, once it finally gets over it, it’ll be facing away from you; off the screen. You have about 1 second here to knock it back again before it comes stampeding into you. If you maintain the knock back it’ll stay stuck, turning it into a joke of a boss. Makes it very easy to get through its 32,000,000HP. On that note, it also gives a lot of EXP considering its HP, making it a rather sought after boss (mostly for leeching unfortunately), aside from that, it has no valuable drops aside from its toe, used for the deputy pendant quest.
