Archangel Eli Boss Strategies

Strategy Writeup

Brother Eli can perform many attacks with different timings so it's difficult to directional block all of them. Try to stay near to him and keep attacking. When is about to perform the AOE attack jump backwards and wait until it's over to go in and keep doing damage. Try to stock up on Injectable Charges to keep your health as high as possible. If you keep close enough to him, only backing up if he uses the AOE ground shockwave attack and then rushing in to attack him ASAP, he will not use his spinning sword-throwing attack, neither his follow-up stun/grab attack, thus, eliminating a significant challenge from the fight. This tactic requires high aggression though and intense dodging as you have to be very close to him at almost all times.

Hardcore Kill method

Break every piece of his armor.

Fly Up and Strike: He will strike you from above and then perform a cinematic sequence where he impales you with the sword dealing high damage Try to directional block from above or dodge to either side.
Cast Nanites on the ground: He will stay immobile while casting nanites patches below your feet Try to round around the area so you don't stay over the nanites. You can also try to circle around him and deal some damage.

      Can we see a recommendation on level to face this boss. That info doesnt appear to be anywhere that i can find

        A lot of comments say the same thing. It’s an easy final boss that you can just brain dead attack spam until it dies. This boss needs either more dmg, some ability to suppress player healing, you can come to his fight w like 12( 4 each) healing power injectable and unlike souls games, there is no healing animation. You can heal while you attack or dodge or run. It’s just more hp. If you try to fight him without healing, then he is a challenge. He has cool patterns and is actually intimidating.

        For the hardcore kill, go for his hands first. They will get some armor red bar later on, they don’t have this when the fight starts. Nano defense is good here. Later phase will involve nano attacks.

          Mk X'd out Angel VI set and Codename: Valkyrie, Tactile Amplifier, Emergency Reserve Injection, Metallic Hardener, Adrenaline Shunt and a few other less important implants, Eli went down faster than a sack of hammers with me just clawing his armor off in next to no time, while generating nonstop energy to keep healing, damage boosting and shunting with lmao

              And thats all folkes?? this is the final boss?? Nitro (the first one) is far more dificult than every boss in this game, especially this one. No wait, reriusly... Which is the point in killing a plain archetype for the 3rd time in the game just by mashing R1 and circle ?? Love first Surge, but im really disapointied about Surge 2. SAD

                I feel bad for Eli, he's like the sailor captain in God of war, keeps showing up just to get waffle sti.ped down the drain again

                  This is the now 3rd and easily most defendable boss for dying before I can do hardcore method even though I didnt go a single damn hit over broken on any given part. There should be a considerable extra amount of health to make up for the armor health. Armor and max health of an enemy should not correlate

                    really easy, just mk10 MG cerberus and mk10 brother trumans spear with mk5 implant, 60 points in HP, 25 in stamina and 75 in energy. just face tank him like its nothing and button mash until you win. easiest boss ingame

                      Did the fight in my tank set (Cerberus Head and Arms, SCARAB Body and Legs) and threw on the Nano Absorber EX. Easily face tanked him, no blocking, while mainly using dodge to get closer rather than evade.

                        My health injectables randomly stop working during the fight and it's killing me. Is this a glitch? There will be like 30 second spurts where the injectables just stop working

                          Surprisingly easy fight if you took the time to upgrade your gear. Went at him with the full Iron Maus set at Mk X and most of the bonus after parry implants and it was over before I realized it - thought there'd be a phase 2 or something. Just parry what you can, and pummel him in between his combos and he goes down pretty fast..
