Strategy WriteupNitro is the first boss fight you encounter . He's armored all over except for his head, so that's where you should target. Nitro uses an Equalizer, dishing out slow but damaging attacks. Try to back off while he's attacking, then take advantage of his recovery period to land a few hits. In case you die, remember to come back through the door you opened earlier to avoid most of the enemies. As you do not have yet have the Exo-Rig at this point, you cannot dodge, run or jump while fighting him.
Alternatively, you could parry all his attacks and counter him to death. This is much faster, but also more difficult, as the player does not yet have access to the Directional Block Analyzer.
Attacks & Counters
|Three-Hit-Combo||Keep your distance, wait for him to finish his third strike and then go in to attack.|
|Vertical||Keep your distance, wait for him to finish his attack, and then go in to attack.|
|Vertical slam (mainly used for counterattack)||Nitro will use this attack mainly after you've wailed on him a bit. As with his other attacks, back off and wait for him to finish, and then go back to hitting him.|

MG Jacknife Pro comes from Warden Garcia, not from Nitro Johnson
That's not a boss...
Like, seriously, where did you guys get his name from?
Why is this guy called "Violent Nic"? His boss name is Nitro, is it not?
Hit all the time and cut his right hand to get achivement for special boss kill and "MG Jackknife Pro", his single-rigged weapon (damage 82, impact 95, energy 100, stamina 110).
