Little Johnny Strategies
The goal is to break his 5 cooling tanks: 2 on the cockpit and 1 on each leg. There're also 2 pincers on the cockpit, cutting both will reward you V2 weapon that deals poison damage, but they don't count as tanks.
Staying beneath the cockpit may bait him to use stomp attack, there's a little animation before the attack, giving you time to backdash and position yourself to charge an attack to the cockpits cooling tanks.
When a leg tank is destroyed, he'll be staggered and start releasing gas from the broken leg. You can go for one leg at a time, switch to another when it's low-health, then break them all at once.
Use your drone to shoot down the tanks on the cockpit when they're out of reach.
Directional Parry is useful for this fight, but not necessary per se.
It's weak to nano damage (not electricity, even though it's a machine).
Hardcore Kill method
Cut off both claws.
Attacks & Counters
|Attack from above with the rear leg||Dodge aside and strike back|
|Crush you with the front legs||Dodge backwards and strike back|
|Stand up and spawn starfish mines. Explode when stepped on, dealing electricity damage||He remains immobile while doing this, so it's a good opportunity to attack his legs. Or use your drone to shoot the tanks on the cockpit|
|Leans backwards standing on two legs and throws poison from the lower part of his body||He can't turn around while doing it, so you can attack his legs|
|Stand up then stomp down with the cockpit when player is near or beneath||Dodge back or just keep distance, then strike back|
|Crush forward with the cockpit||Dodge back/aside or parry his attack, then strike back|
|Swipe its pincers when player is near his front half arc||Dodge back/aside or parry his attack, then strike back|
Little Johnny Lore
- His name is Johnathan. (From audiolog: Eli's Confession)
- He knew it's Eli who killed their sister. (From audiolog: Brotherly Love)
- The player doesn't directly kill Johnny, rather, he's burnt inside his machine. His head is preserved and kept alive in a tank at level-1 powerplant, Cathedral of the Spark. You can shut down the life support system and finish him off for good.
