Hivehats are Mimics that hide in Pidgebee hives. Pidgebees will gradually fly from the hive and attack any enemy who aggravates them when the swarm is full. They have no other attack until they are knocked off the ceiling, when they move as Rockbugs.
Tips & AttacksEdit
Get too close to the Hivehat before you knock it down and a swarm of Pidgebees will attack you, doing a fair amount of damage and draining your skill, just like Grabrats. Once you've knocked the Hivehat down, it behaves much like a Rockbug. Nidarian Guard members can hit them with a charge attack, which will kill the Pidgebees and prevent the Hivehat from producing more.
As long as you keep aiming at the Hivehat itself, you shouldn't have any problem with the Pidgebees that spawn on it. After a few shots, the Hivehat will come down. Kill off any remaining Pidgebees, and jump down to finish it off. Jump over the Hivehat if it gets too close, but aside from that, you shouldn't have any problems.
You generally reach these enemies by jumping and swiping at them to knock them down, however whenever you need to hang to get close to them, beware of the Pidgebees that come out. These defense oriented mini-enemies will knock you off where you are hanging, so its best to position yourself where you are able to quickly swipe at them and then go in to kill the hivehat. After it is knocked down, attack or divebomb until dead.
Use your Grappling Hook to knock the Hivehat down, then move in for the kill, downwards swiping it repeatedly.
