Brother Eli Strategies
You can start the fight yourself without talking to him, hit him with charged attack from the back.
He can perform quick attacks that break your balance. Try to wait for his combos to finish and then strike back while he is recovering.
He will summon 2x Twin-Rigged SPARK Aspirant in phase 2. Try to deal with them first and then continue attacking Brother Eli. You can use your drone to shoot their unarmored limbs.
As a human, he's weak to Fire and Electricity damage (even though he's using a sparking weapon).
Hardcore Kill method
Cut off his right arm to get Warhammer of Forced Conversion.

Brother Eli Lore
- He asked Brother Truman to recruit unwitting pawns to kill his brother Little Johnny (Johnathan). If any of them ended up successful, he would then kill them and frame them as a murderer, as he tries to do to the player. (Audiologs: Eli's Confession, Eli's Last Message, The puppet master)
tip for any boss, if you fail the hard core kill, you can restart the boss as long as you have not visited the medbay. Simply go to main menu, press continue, then choose revert instead of loading to reload to the last med bay. This is usually just before the boss battle, as bosses tend to kill players a few times. Someone commented that there is an implant reward for decapitating him. Through testing, I received no reward. That is not true.
Was using the 2.0 weapon from his brother and he died to poison before i could cut the arm :(
After first encounter "I haven't seen brother Eli in a while" Oooohh I know better :D After second "Brother Eli came back to life!" Oooohh I know better ;D
You can also get an Implant if you Cut off His Head. ( I did it when you face off with him the 2nd time). The Impant He drops Regenerate Stamina 25% quicker when Health is Low.
Apparently trying to go to Seaside Court, also triggers the fight with this fanatical jerk!
You can cheese him super hard by repeatedly hitting him with the spark emp. It attached to him and eventually detonates stunning him for a second or two.
Super cheese node on killing this Boss: Drop three turrets and just avoid his attacks. You will need to kill the minions that enter the fight but the turrets will take care of about 80% of Eli’s health. Once the turrets went off line I just finished him off with Regular drone fire.
Tested what someone said about getting V2 by not killing the 2 mobs that spawn in later half, just the regular version...
I got version 2 of his weapon. I am not sure what the hardcore condition is. I believe it is not killing the ads and severing right arm. Can anyone confirm?
Is there a V2 of his weapon? I cut his weapon arm off again during the 2nd boss encounter and didn't get an upgraded version of it, just upgrade materials
Boss is susceptible to being stunned by the EMP drone you just picked up before this. land it on him, then start your attacks right before it explodes and you can get some damage in safely
