Sorry for not explaining the Eidolon fight better, was trying to stop my brain from having a bit of a meltdown about doing too many unexpected things at once. To explain it a bit better for next time:
1. Only Operator weapons can take down the Eidolon’s shields (indicated by the purple on its health bar).
2. Once its shields are down (its health bar goes fully yellow and its whole body flashes red) you use normal weapons to shoot out the weak points at its knees and biceps – a yellow health bar will pop up when you mouse over them, they’re weak to Radiation damage, and sniper rifles are good at taking them out. They can be hard to hit because they move around a lot and get blocked by other parts of its body.
3. This is complicated by the Vomvalyst adds that keep spawning to try and put its shields back up. Normal weapons destroy their physical body, Operator weapons kill their energy form. If they do manage to put the shields back up, you have to kill all the Vomvalysts before you can damage the Eidolon’s shields again.
4. Once one of its weak points is taken out, it crouches down and puts out high damage radial pulses (and any surviving weak points regenerate to their full health). The easiest ways to survive these pulses are running a long way away, or going into Operator form and crouching to become invulnerable.
5. It then teleports away to a different point on the Plains. Using an Archwing to quickly fly up very high into the sky and look for the blue flame as it emerges from a new body of water is a good way to find it again.
6. Rinse and repeat until all 4 weak points are taken out, at which point it collapses to the ground for a while and Vomvalysts rush in from all over the Plains to try and heal it. The more we kill, the less it gets healed in this phase.
7. It then gets up, with a percentage of its full health depending on how many Vomvalysts reached it, and we can damage any part of its body with normal weapons to kill it while it tries to kill us and Vomvalysts keep spawning and trying to put its shields back up.

There’s an additional mechanic with Lures, which we can capture and hack at Grineer camps and then charge up by bringing enough energy form Vomvalysts near them. If we can keep them near the Eidolon and keep them alive, they’ll stop it teleporting and when it’s defeated it gets captured instead of killed and gives us better loot.

The Eidolon we fought on stream is the smallest Eidolon, it has two older siblings who are much bigger and nastier with more weak points and more special attacks.
