If you're struggling to fight off the sole strike boss in the Destiny 2 beta, here's a handy tip to save you a ton of time.
Dirt drillers aside, Destiny 2's Inverted Spire strike is a bit of a cakewalk. Most of the enemies don't pose much of a threat, and as long as you have the right weapons equipped at the right time even newcomers should have an easy time.
But the boss, Modular Mind, can be a bit of a pain in the arse. The actual boss battle has three phases to it. The first takes place across two platforms, with the boss teleporting around after taking a certain amount of damage.
That's easy enough. The second bit is where a lot of people trip up. After taking out the floor beneath you, and falling to the stage where the second phase takes place, the Modular Mind will occasionally turn the floor into lava, forcing players to jump onto one of the pillars or run out of the inner ring entirely.
Jumping onto the pillars is the most obvious move, but it leaves you exposed to the boss. Fortunately, there's a way you can stay out in the open - while damaging the boss at the same time:
Brilliant. This trick can be used throughout the boss fight, although you'll still need to jump onto the pillar or run around to avoid the lava floor in the second phase.
As for the healing field itself, only Warlocks (either Voidwalker or Dawnblade) can summon one, but it will heal every teammate standing within the zone. If a Titan is nearby, they can also throw up the small barrier covering the lower half of your bodies, which you can use to insta-reload by running through the barrier.
Another trick if you're not a Warlock, and don't have one nearby, is to stand on the little ledge behind each of the pillars. There's enough room to crouch behind it, which will let you dodge the Modular Mind's blasts. You can fire at will after that point, although you'll obviously want to pay attention to the mobs if they get close.
