The Boss Rush Update for Dead Cells is now live on all platforms. In this patch, players can fight the different bosses in the game one after another, with some having modifiers to make things even more interesting.

Aside from the new challenge, there are other things introduced in the latest update as well. One of those things is the Glyphs of Peril - a new ranged weapon that increases the number of attacks in its combo as the player’s HP drops. If the player is in critical health, for example, the number of hits using this weapon increases to seven. What’s more, the player deals critical damage from the third hit onward.

The second is a new skill called Taunt. When used, the enemy in front of the player gets stronger and faster, but at the cost of taking more melee damage.

The third most notable addition in the Boss Rush Update is a new mutation called Wish. Once activated, the next item that the player picks up is upgraded to Legendary quality. However, this mutation gets locked in the loadout once it’s triggered. Wish can be acquired by beating the third stage in Boss Rush .
