Guard Savage's main form of attacking is to shoot a shark-shaped beam from his mouth. After firing it five times, Guard Savage will attempt to ram the player, after which he will send anchor drones. His mouth is his weak spot, but his fins can also be destroyed for extra points.
The only difference is its behavior since now it wont follow you but you will have to chase him, increasing the chances of your ship falling prey to the deadly beam which now moves faster than in other games.
