Bosses are powerful and unique computer-controlled adversaries in Destiny, often encountered at the climax of a mission or featured as an integral part of a public event, and tend to be the main antagonist of such events. Bosses are identified by their unique names, such as "Riksis, Devil Archon," and in some instances may have a skull icon instead of a numerical level. Bosses characteristically have large health and deal high damage, usually requiring a group of players to be taken down. However, they are very predictable and are not difficult if the players are patient. Upon death, bosses may drop rare and exotic loot, such as weapons or armor.
