A upgrade of the Iron Maiden, this larger variant has a different movement pattern.
Unlike the original version - these ones can fire bullets.
The Iron Maiden MK 2, rather than tracking the terrain, bounces around the boss area, firing the occasional bullet.
The only difficulty comes from it's large size - the bullets are almost not worth noting, as they seem to aim downwards, precisely where you won't be.
The Iron Maiden MK 2 bounces on both the floor and ceiling, and you must defeat several of them before taking on Reckless .
