"Group Bosses are powerful enemies that cannot be defeated in one combat.
To defeat a Group Boss, enlist the help of your friends. You can also help your friends by visiting their map.
You'll earn silver for each combat, and Lockboxes when the Group Boss is defeated.
Lockboxes contain a random prize, including a chance at winning a unique playable hero!
Lockboxes can be opened in the Collections menu on the Flight Deck.
Be sure you and your friends defeat the Group Boss before its timer expires, or it will escape and return later at full health!
"
— S.H.I.E.L.D. Intel

A Group Boss is designed to be combated by a Player and their Allies. It was introduced in Special Operations - Vision of the Future.

A Group Boss battle is similar to a Boss battle, but must be fought several times. It costs 10 Energy and 20 Unstable Isotope-8 to initiate on a Player's map, but does not require any Resources if initiated on an Ally's map.

The Team-Up! is not present in Group Boss. Supplies, Distress Calls, and Combat Store are disabled during the battle. Ending the battle will not progress the current mission and does not add to a mission score.

For Silver dropping: From Spec Ops 8 to Spec Ops 18, Group Boss drops the rate of 1 Silver per 1 damage taken, but in Spec Ops 19 Group Boss drops the rate of 0.75 Silver per 1 damage taken.


Spec Op 8

  • In Spec Ops Map
  • Group Boss Ultron is seen on Ally's map and Ally Bar
  • In Ally's Map
  • Rewarded for defeating in Ally's map
  • Silver dropped from Group Boss Ultron
  • Group Boss will return
  • (No description)

In Spec Op 8, the Group Boss is Ultron. the Group Boss will spawn in any Spec Op mission after Task 6 is completed, and will respawn after 72 hours (3 days). Its class randomly changes in every battle.

During the battle with Ultron's Clone, Silver will be earned as it is damaged. If it loses 10% of its health, a single Omega Lockbox will be awarded. After three rounds, Ultron will have a chance to flee. If it has not been defeated by a player or Allies before the countdown ends, it will reset to 100% health.

If a player or ally defeats Ultron, a "Redeem Group Boss Reward" icon will appear upon entering any Spec Ops Mission. Clicking on it will award 4 Omega Lockboxes. If a player waits to click and collect their 4 Omega Lockboxes, their Allies can continue to fight Ultron at 1% and collect 4 Omega Lockboxes of their own.

Helping Allies 

Images depicting an Ally in the Ally Bar with a Group Boss in their Map. Note that Tony Stark will never have a Group Boss available in his map and his Ally Bar is used here for illustration purposes.


In the ally bar, your ally's Avatar is halved by Group Boss' avatar and moved to the left before Tony Stark which means the ally player currently attacked the Group Boss. You can visit allies and help them defeat the Group Boss.

Fighting the Group Boss has no cost. You can only help each of your friend defeat their Group Boss once per spawn. So the more times you help a friend, the more Lockboxes you receive.
