Tears of the Kingdom – How To Beat Flux Construct 2
In The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, adversaries lurk everywhere – beneath you, around you, and above you. If you dare to explore the new Sky Islands in the game, rest assured that you will encounter numerous enemies and formidable bosses who will stop at nothing to bring you down.
Among these Sky Islands, you will come face to face with the Flux Construct II, a boss that packs a powerful punch. Similar to its predecessor, this boss is made up of blocks, with a single vulnerable point that must be targeted. However, unlike the previous version, the Flux Construct II possesses new moves that require careful countermeasures.
Updated by Shane Black on June 30th, 2023: This guide has been revised to provide information on the drops obtained from defeating the Flux Construct II boss, as well as the significance of these materials throughout the rest of the game. Additionally, more links have been included in the text to relevant guides and articles that can further assist players.
The First Phase:
Upon approaching the Flux Construct II, your first task is to identify the weak point among its blocks that must be targeted. This weak point can be recognized by its soft blueish, greenish glow. It may be concealed behind another block, so move around until you locate it and prepare for an attack. The strategy remains the same as before: utilize your Ultrahand ability to shake the blocks loose or shoot arrows at the spot to stun the boss. Once all the blocks are scattered, swiftly approach the weak spot and unleash your most powerful weapon to inflict as much damage as possible before the Flux Construct II reassembles itself.
The Second Phase:
At this point, the boss is likely to ascend into the sky, hovering above you in a square-ish shape. The weak point cannot be seen nor damaged from this position, making it a bit challenging to determine what to do next. You must wait for the boss to launch approximately five blocks towards you. Dodge these blocks and, once they have ceased moving, rush over, leap onto one of them, and strike it with Recall. This will transport you back up to the Flux Construct II, positioned on its back. Take advantage of this opportunity to attack the weak spot until the entire boss falls apart once again. Exercise caution, as the boss can inflict damage when it disassembles, so be prepared for this eventuality.
The Third Phase:
In this phase, the Flux Construct II transforms into a cube. It reconstructs itself into a cube shape and rolls after you. Pay close attention to its movements and you will notice a weak spot in the center of one of its sides. Draw your bow and shoot arrows at the weak spot until it becomes stunned. Then, as usual, unleash a flurry of attacks to maximize your damage output. Alternatively, you can attempt to use Ultrahand once again to grab hold of the weak point and shake it out of the cube. However, be aware that this method is considerably more difficult, as the cube continuously rotates and moves towards you at an accelerated pace. Ultrahand slows you down, making you more susceptible to enemy attacks. Additionally, beware of the boss’s aerial assault during the cube phase, where it ascends into the air, moves above you, and then crashes down with great force. Quickly sprint away to evade this attack, as it can cause significant damage. With careful adherence to these strategies, the Flux Construct II will eventually succumb.
Once the boss is defeated, you will reap substantial rewards. The most valuable drops are the Flux Construct II Cores, which prove immensely beneficial when Fusing weapons. These cores have the potential to more than double the damage you inflict.

There are enemies everywhere in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, both below you, around you, and above you. If you venture into the sky to explore the game’s new Sky Islandsyou are sure to find a few enemies and bosses that want to take you out.
The Flux Construct II is one such boss that you will find among the game’s Sky Islands, and it packs a mean punch. Much like its predecessor, it is composed of blocks, with one weak point that you need to target. However, unlike the first iteration, this one has a few new moves that you need to counter.
Updated by Shane Black on June 30th, 2023: This guide was updated to explain what the Flux Construct II boss drops once you have defeated it, as well as what those materials can do for you in the rest of the game. Also added more links to the text for relevant guides and articles that can further help players.
The First Phase
When you first approach the Flux Construct II, you need to identify which of its blocks is the weak point that you need to be targeting. You will know which block this is as it has a soft blueish, greenish glow to it. It will be a part of its larger body and may be hidden behind another block. Move around until you can find it, and get ready to attack.
The strategy is the same as the last one: use your Ultrahand ability and shake it to dislodge every blockor shoot the spot with arrows to eventually stun it. Either way, when all the blocks are scattered, run up to the weak spot and wail on it with your best weapon. Get as much damage in as you can before the Flux Construct II reassembles itself.
The Second Phase
Now, it will likely fly into the air and hover above you in a square-ish shape. You will notice that you can’t see the weak point from here, and you can’t damage it either. This part is a little tricky to know what to do, as you have to wait for the attack when it sends about five blocks down at you.
When it does this, dodge the blocks, and when they’ve stopped, run over, jump on one, and then hit it with Recall. This will bring you back up to the Flux Construct II on its back. Here, you can attack the weak spot until the entire thing falls apart again. Be careful, as it can cause damage when it falls apart, so be ready for this.
The Third Phase
The next phase will be its cube form. It assembles itself into a cube and then will roll after you. Pay attention as it rolls, and you will see that one side has a weak spot in the middle of it. When you see it, take out your bow and shoot it with arrows until it is stunned. Then, as usual, go to town on it to do as much damage as you can.
You can also try to use Ultrahand again to grab onto the weak point and shake it out of the cube. This method is just much more difficult as the cube continues to turn on its sides and moves faster towards you. Ultrahand slows you down, so you are opening yourself up to getting hit a lot more with this strategy. Also, look out for its attack during the cube phase, where it goes into the air, moves over you, and then comes smashing down on you. Just sprint away to avoid this attack, as it can do a good amount of damage.
Eventually, if you follow these strategies, Flux Construct II will fall.
Once it is down, you can collect a good amount of rewards from it:
The Flux Construct II Cores are the best part of the drops, and are something that can be a huge help when you are Fusing weapons. It can more than double the amount of damage you are doing.
