To make this fight extremely easy you will need 1 pan flute, 20 gunpowder, and 1 torch.

To craft a pan flute, you will need 5x cut reeds, 1x mandrake, and 1x rope. It requires a prestihatinator to craft, which can be crafted at a science station using 4x live rabbits (not murdered!), 4x boards, and 1x top hat. Rabbits can be captured with traps. Alternatively, pan flutes have a 75% chance of dropping near Glommer’s statue.

To craft gunpowder, you will need 1x nitre, 1x charcoal, and 1x rotten eggs and an alchemy engine to prototype. Eggs are most easily gotten from pengulls or by feeding a bird in a birdcage any meat. After being fed meat, captured birds will immediately drop eggs. The eggs can then be spoiled most easily by leaving them on the ground, but if they are left out on the ground they are easily accessible to hungry mobs. Birds can be caught with bird traps over seeds, and birdcages can be crafted with 2x papyrus, 2x seeds, and 6x gold nuggets with an alchemy engine to prototype. Each gunpowder does 200 points of damage.

Once your materials are in hand, wait for deerclops to spawn. He usually spawns at the end of winter and you will hear low growling/roaring before he does. Once he is on screen, immediately play the pan flute. He will fall asleep. Walk up very closely to him until you are sure that your character is touching him and drop your stack of gunpowder. Immediately light it with your torch (there will be an option to press a button to do this) and run away. Deerclops will be instantly killed by the ensuing explosion and BOOM! Achievement.

Something worth noting: if bosses are killed with gunpowder, their special loot won’t drop and instead will be incinerated (this means no deerclops eyeball/scales/down feathers!). To avoid this, you could take one gunpowder off the stack and finish off the boss more conventionally or even have another mob kill it.

If you don’t care about loot and are trying to kill all bosses in one run, it’s advisable to save scum after you get the achievement in order to preserve as much gunpowder as possible. Nitre can be extremely limited in some worlds and there is a boss that requires 138 gunpowder to kill.

This solution is simply the easiest way to kill bosses, and although it is possible to kite most of them, it’s extremely hard to do so on console and with potential lag. Good luck!
