The first boss in the game, the Stinger, has a simple way to be skipped entirely. To do this, the player must run up to the Stinger and drop an item in front of it, then turn around and wait for the boss to lunge at them. If the player picks up the item they just dropped at the right time, they’ll become invulnerable, and the scorpion’s attack will go straight through them. The player can then back out of the menu and simply run past the Stinger to safety.
