Rare Form

A rare elemental variant of this monster can spawn in bounty missions, and has a very small chance to appear in the wild. It has an identical drop pool, base stats, and spawn area, but applies the slowing Frost status effect when touched. This variant erupts at a further distance, has much more projectiles per eruption, throws its projectiles at a higher velocity, and its projectiles leave snow on the ground.

This form can also be captured, and when caught will complete an entry in the Rare Pets collection.
