'''The Intoxigator''' is the first boss of Episode 1 [[The Foothills (Levels)|The Foothills]]. As the name implies, he is a American Alligator that has had Moonshine Bottles fused onto him, allowing him to spew out toxic vomit. He is very slow, and attacks with acid spit, which can be easily strafed to the side, or blocked by some of the columns or other stuff found in the arena. He possesses 5000HP, which isn't much, but at the time, player's strongest weapon in his arsenal is a [[Weapons#assault rifle|Assault rifle]] (excluding secrets pick ups), which makes the fight last much longer, than it would be later in the game.

Intoxigator has 5000 health, making it one of the weaker bosses in the game. Intoxigator's main method of attack consists of spitting a volley of acid shots at the player, similar to the Horror's spit. If the player has not unlocked any additional weapons from secrets, Intoxigator can be a formidable first boss.

Utilizing the Super Shotgun from one of the secrets in the level can be useful, however the player will need to back away in time to avoid the acid spit.
