Metal Armor Boss Strategies

Strategy Writeup

Phase 1

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.


Phase 2

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

Destroy both Robot legs armor on Phase 1. Destroy Flamethrower on phase 2 and cut one of the General's arms.

      I used the EMP-44 Starfish drone module on the magnetic lock above the door panel and it changed the Door Panel to require an ID Card instead of doing something beneficial...

      No clue what ID Card the door now expects...

        I had a lot of problems with the Boss 2 I agree with most of the comments that his boss is ridiculous, but he really isn't that hard you just need to learn his moves set you can do the first phase without getting hit or maybe hit a couple of times you just got to watch out for the flamethrower that's easy to dodge and you got to watch out for the fire explosion AOE that he does that's also easy to dodge once you see it coming, with the AOE fire attack beneath the metal armor it will light up quickly Dodge out of the way as soon as you see it hide behind the barricades to dodge the minigun and his flamethrower attacks you can easily strafe these attacks by dodging to the left to make the robot turn. Or right you can go right if you feel like it I always went left, I would break the armor on his legs then I would keep on hitting his legs a couple of times and then back out of the way before he didn't have a chance to hit me rinse and repeat
