Salazar will hit you with a ton of deadly attacks, including acid spit and acid pods which can quickly reduce your health if you get caught. The attack you should be most careful about is when the monster tries to chomp you, as this can instantly kill you.

You can evade these attacks effectively if you take cover behind the staircase with a pillar. The acid pods also drop useful loot when you shoot at them, but be sure to keep your distance when they explode.
