Cultic’s Chapter 1 has ten levels filled with fantastic environments, terrifying enemies, and wonderfully crafted pieces and fights. While tracking the occult, you must face off against two bosses during Cultic’s first chapter. Both provide a unique and exciting challenge.
Regardless of whether you want to improve your level or are struggling with the boss fights in Cultic, we will review the best methods for taking down each boss found in Chapter 1 of the game.
Spoiler Status (No Storyline Spoilers Contained Within)
We will be covering both bosses found in Chapter 1. The first boss is on E1M6, and the second is on the final level, E1M10. These boss fights have beautiful environments, suspenseful moments, and wonderful presentations, so if you are the kind of gamer who wants to wait in suspense and get the reveal as the devs intended, you may want to hold up until you’ve seen them.
That being said, we welcome you to continue reading. We will not be providing any storyline spoilers that may ruin the gameplay. We’re just here to help you destroy Cultic’s most powerful monsters! Now, with our disclaimer out of the way, let’s continue with our guide on how to defeat all Cultic bosses in Chapter 1.

T26 E4 Super, The First Boss of Cultic Chapter 1
The T26E4 Super Tank is a formidable enemy that is deployed to fight the player in the Chapel Garden. It rams through the front gate of the Chapel Garden and remains a powerful, yet stationary threat throughout the entire fight. The Super Tank uses a 50-caliber main cannon and a machine gunner.
During the Chapel Garden battle, reinforcements will constantly spawn behind and around the Chapel so long as the Super Tank has health remaining. No matter how many cultists are eliminated, more will spawn until the tank is brought down. Also, this boss battle disables quick saving, so it must be defeated in one attempt.
Defeating the Super Tank Boss
The Super Tank’s main cannon can easily be avoided if the player takes cover behind any terrain located next to the tank, but the machine gunner can still hit them unless they keep their heads tucked down.
The Super Tank takes only minor damage from bullets, and one must use explosives if one wants to make any dents in the boss’s thick armor. One can quickly toss bundles of unlit TNT, then either shoot the boss with a Grenade Launcher or toss one lit dynamite bundle to detonate all the unexploded TNT for massive damage.
Abomination, The Final Boss of Cultic Chapter 1
After breaching the final chamber in the tenth and final level of Cultic Chapter 1, the player will come face to face with the Abomination. This twisted amalgamation is one of the biggest and most dangerous monsters that the occult has created thus far.
As with the previous fight against the Super Tank, there will be continuous cultists spawning from two platforms on either side of the boss’s head, which must be focused on whenever they appear. If these cultists are not dealt with immediately, they will continue to pepper you with bullets or jump down to engage you in melee combat.
Combat Strategies for Defeating the Abomination Boss in Cultic
Aside from the consent swarms of cultists, the boss will raise its giant skeletal hands and smash the ground wherever the player is standing. To avoid these attacks, stay on the move and never stand still.
While there aren’t cultists flooding the arena, aim at the Abomination’s ribcage. Damaging the ribcage will lower the Abomination’s blue health bar, and once it’s depleted, the boss’s heart will be exposed.
Damaging the Abomination’s Heart
While the heart is exploded, you have a limited window to deal permanent damage to the boss, so we recommend tossing a few unlit Bundles of TNT into the heart before throwing on lit dynamite or shooting the heart to explode the unlit TNT.
The Abomination will stop attacking while its heart is exposed, so you don’t need to dodge its slam attacks. However, keep an eye on the balconies above for more cultists while you whittle the boss’s health down.
Wrap-Up on Defeating All Bosses in Cultic Chapter 1
