Major General Ezra Shields Boss Strategies
The fight will begin against "Metal Armor". The general will be piloting a two legged Robot armed with a Mini-gun and a flamethrower.
The Boss moves and turns very slow. Try to stay near him while going in circles around him and dealing some damage. He won’t be able to kick you if you stay behind him. When you see the guns point down jump backwards, wait until the attack is over and go in again to deal some damage. When he throws fire at you, just run in circles until the attack is over and then continue dealing damage. When you see he is charging the flamethrower jump backwards and wait for the flames to extinguish then go back and keep dealing damage.
The general will be expelled from the robot and will fight you melee with punching gloves. The armor will still periodically fire beams at you and use the flamethrower. You can destroy the flamethrower by selecting the robot and selecting the limb. A good strategy is going around the robot while the general chases you. When he starts attacking you, jump away and attack the flamethrower. Once the flamethrower is destroyed, the robot will only fire beams at you.
Hardcore Kill method
Cut one of the General's arms for General's A.C.U. V2.0.
Destroy firearm of Metal Armor on phase 2 for Vulc-88 'Panthera' Rotary Gun.
