Mosqueira as a Rift Guardian

On very rare occasions, he can spawn in a Nephalem Rift, being buffed accordingly, as a monster or as a Rift Guardian. The chance is even lower than that of encountering the Lord of Bells. He is the only Unique monster that can be summoned in a Nephalem Rift through Nemesis Bracers.

In combat, he has Wormhole and Orbiter affixes, his title will be changed to Reaper of 'Soles (consoles).

Upon killing him, a Mosquito Swatter achievement under the Feats Of Strength category is unlocked.
