Terrormorphs are Starfield’s equivalent to Fallout’s Deathclaws, portraying the dangers of exploring wildly. However, this doesn’t mean that they can’t be killed, and some objectives require you to kill them. A task that is easier said than done, you’ll need everything you’ve got to take the likes of a Terrormorph. But never fear, as with a few steps of preparation, you can out-smart the creature and send it to the shadow realm.

Terrormorphs are extremely agile, and can rush you in an instant. Because of this, you’ll want to load up with long-range weapons, and equip the best boosting jetpack you have. If possible you want to make sure you can get the high ground on the enemy Terrormorph. Because Terrormorphs are melee damage only, they’ll have to run to you in order to do damage. When this happens, switch between doing damage and repositioning yourself. Having a companion to draw aggro is also a bonus if you want to bring someone along. But just keep dancing around the hulking alien, and after a decent amount of time (thanks to their massive health bars), you’ll successfully eliminate any Terrormorphs that come your way.
