Quick question. How much health does the demolisher boss at the end have?

So, here's a quick psa. I checked the mod files to figure out how much health the final boss has. It has 600,000. A cyberdemon has 4,000. I believe this mod adds a weapon that can do enough damage to kill this thing, but you may be unable to obtain it if you use it with a weapon replacer. So either don't replace the weapons or go into the files and edit the boss's health.

You got it. You need the black hole weapon to kill the final boss.
