The Moth Queen is a mini boss located in the center of the Zergilin system. The Moth Queen uses a variety of weapons. She has a bite attack that deals a large amount of damage. and two ranged attacks: Moth Queen Spit Gland and Locust Hatchery.
The Spit Gland launches a slow moving projectile that has damage over time (DoT) effect. The locust hatchery sends out homing locusts in all directions which deal small amount of damage upon contact and a small DoT afterwards. Individually they don't do much damage, but there are many many locusts and their damage adds up quickly. A Moth Queen can also explode in a kamikaze attack when it is low on health and close to a player. If the Moth Queen explodes, you will not get credit for killing it. There are other types of Queens through out the systems travel with care.
The Moth Queen tends to charge to use her bite attack which does a lot of damage and the Hardened Shield ability is a good way to deal with this. You can let the Moth Queen charge, use your shield and it will pass though harmlessly. It may take a bit of practice to get the timing right. After the Moth Queen charges, she takes time to get turned around making her an easy target. By the time she is ready to charge again, your hardened shield should be ready to use. Keep your distance when she starts flashing as it means she will use her kamikaze if you get too close.
Don't let her spit gland stack, or you end up In a situation where the clock is ticking to your death. The Energy Nova cancels this out, but watch out of the AoE of the spit.
Long and medium range weapons (like Razor or Blaster) tend to work well against the Moth Queen. An Energy Nova can also be useful to cancel out her locusts, which after a certain point do no lethal damage. Note: The locusts, unlike other Enemy's locusts and the Locust Hatchery weapon, don't stack DoT
