Final Fantasy 15 MA-X Angelus-0 Boss - How to kill giant robot


MA-X Angelus-0 is a boss in Final Fantasy XV. It’s a giant, bipedal robot you can find wandering the desert. The mech is level 99 and pretty tough. When you kill it, there’s a chance it’ll drop the Magitek Suit V2, one of the best accessories in the game. Sadly, the drop chance is pretty low, so you might be stuck having to kill it dozens of times. In this guide, we’re going to show you how to kill MA-X Angelus-0 fast in Final Fantasy 15.

Where to find MA-X Angelus-0 in FF15

There’s no set location where you can find this enemy. It will spawn via Imperial dropship at a couple of places, but you’re stuck waiting and reloading until it shows up. The best location is next to the camping spot north of Hammerhead garage. Stand there and wait for the dropship. If it’s not the boss, either reload or kill the cannon fodder and wait for the next one (should appear about 30 seconds after the fight ends).

How to kill MA-X Angelus-0 fast in FFXV

Preparation is key here. You’ll need specific weapons, items and food. Here’s the best way to prepare:

  1. Get the Zwill Crossblades from Randolph. If you need more details, take a look at our best weapons in FFXV guide.
  2. Use the rest of the slots to equip the Armigers with the highest damage output.
  3. Make sure you equip accessories that increase your damage, like the Dark Matter Bracelet.
  4. Bring several Power EX and Muscle Stimulant potions.
  5. Camp at the nearby site and eat the Golden Tail Soup. It will make all your attacks critical hits.

The fight itself shouldn’t take longer than five minutes, provided you’ve prepared well. Here are some things to keep in mind during combat:

  • Start the fight in easy mode, and make sure you’ve unlocked Carbuncle. You’ll need to let the boss kill you to get Carbuncle’s buff.
  • The boss’ weak spot is the rocket launcher on its back.
  • The arms have extra protection, but breaking them will make the boss vulnerable.
  • Use Ignis’s Enhancement skill to increase your damage output.
  • Chug Muscle Stimulants and Power EXs to further enhance your attack.

Fastest way to kill MA-X Angelus-0 boss

Since the release of the Holiday Pack, another way to kill this boss fast has been discovered. To make it work, you’ll need:

  • Zwill Crossblades
  • Armiger Accelerator accessory
  • Power EX potion

Once the boss appears, chug the potion and start slamming away. When the armiger bar is full, activate the skill and milk it until it’s empty. You’ll only have to do this twice before the robot is dead, and it should take you a bit more than a minute.

    So i got a different version of this boss to spawn, it was lvl 76 and dropped a Hydraulic Cylinder
    I’m curious if there are multiple bosses that can spawn from the drop ships

    This boss is overrated, I dunno why people says this boss is hard to kill

    Took me 3 – 4 mins with “normal” way, no potion buffs, no food buffs, no carbuncle buffs crap, no summoning and no armigar attack

    Just warp strike at the core body (you need to target it properly, aim at the body) I did 2500+ per strike easily, repeat till boss is dead . . .

      Nevermind, apparently I fought the weaker version of Angelus (or mistaken as it was Angelus)

      Now I found real one that drop Magitek Suit, just bit more challenge but still nothing different than weaker one

      The trick is keep Ignis alive for buffs and use Apocalypse for super attack buff when low HP, I can still hit this bastard 2000+ per warp strike, dodge incoming as necessary but mostly just spam warp strike at the body part and ether up or warp point recovery

      Still overrated IMHO

          Magitek suit V2 is an accessory item. Gives +2,000HP, +100strength, +70vitality, but it has really, really low drop rate chance. Something around 5%.

          Lokesh answered the question already

          You get Magitek Suit as reward (100% drop), its still good accessory because its gave you HP STR and VIT boost by +1000 HP +70 STR +VIT something

          V.2 is higher stats but rare drop, good hunting

        you’re full of shit haha. I’m lvl 92 which seems to matter for nothing in this game as no matter where I hit, it does max 58 fckin dmg, no matter what weapon i choose, even armiger, every strike does a couple hundred max, no food no buffs? and even then, the damn thing moves and it automatically does 9999, this isn’t hard it’s just bs.

    I cant get this boss to spawn ever. I spent many hours trying and never saw him once. Killed patria which supposedly allows angelus to spawn. Must be some other requirement i dont know about. Not worried about it though. At lvl 99 with my ascension maxed out a couple thousand hp isnt going to change anything very much.

    Spawned 2x in a row after an omen crawls upon the ground bounty. Kill two snakes then wander for a few in the crater then boom…
