Ossakel is a mini boss in Kritillian that patrols the empty space between the main star system and Arborea. Because it is level 36 Mini Boss in a system where the average player is level 15 or 20, many players are caught unaware and are killed instantly.
Ossakel can be easy to kill despite his level, and can be used to level up quickly by refreshing the system.
Ossakel's main weapon is a Beamer that also heals. His secondary weapon is a burst of delayed explosives similar to Sticky Bombs. These stick to the player detonating all at once and deal massive damage. This attack can be neutralized by using the Harden Shield ability or killing him before the explosion.
The best technique is to stay behind or beside Ossakel. He can only fire forward and has the turning radius of a bus. Weapons that lock on easy (like Lightning Gun or Particle Gun) will allow you to focus on staying out of his way rather than shooting him. This is actually easier said than done, as the maximum turning speed of most ships may not be enough to match Ossakel's speed.
For players that are level 20-30, watch out for his Beamer attack. It kills almost instantly, and Harden Shield can only negate some of the damage. Once locked on, it is hard to shake off.
Players with a weapon that attacks to the sides (Particle Gun, Broadside, etc) can fight Ossakel by getting close and circling him. At close range he will only fire his Sticky Bombs, which you can outrun while shooting him with your side-firing weapon. Note that he does disengage after a bit so you will have to fly back over to him to get his attention again and repeat. This works even against green Ossakel, but gold and orange are too fast for this.
Players with a Plankton Siphon Gland could harden their shields and get in close with Ossakel, then using the weapon and turning with Ossakel as it turns away to get you. Ossakel will only deal slight damage, and if the sticky bomb blows up, you would heal right back up. (Note:Have at least 10k shield and at least a level 6 Plankton Siphon Gland before trying to farm Ossakel.)
