Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Bounty Hunters - how to beat

How to beat Haxion Brood Bounty Hunters boss fights

Of the three totally different Haxion Brood enemy sorts you could encounter, the Bounty Hunter is by far the best to take care of. This Jetpack-toting small-timer solely has three strikes it’s important to actually be careful for: his flamethrower, his missile, and his energy shot. If you’re in his face for too lengthy, he’ll activate the flamethrower in a cone, which you’ll be able to simply dodge backwards to keep away from; and typically he’ll additionally fly over you in a line, flamethrowing downwards as he does it (once more, simply roll out of the best way to keep away from it).

The missile is devastating if it hits you, nevertheless it’s pretty simple to see coming and roll out of the best way, and you’ll really place your self in order that it hits the opposite enemy a number of the time, so that is extra only a helpful approach of delivering further harm.

The energy shot is definitely your biggest weapon in opposition to the Bounty Hunter. He’ll shoot two common photographs at you together with his blaster, then cost up one highly effective shot – however deflect this energy shot again at him, and he’ll be shocked and fall to the bottom, shedding a piece of his well being. While he’s shocked you’ll be capable to ship some highly effective strikes in opposition to him – and two of those procedures is normally sufficient to kill him outright.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Bounty Hunter power shot

The factor is, every of the three sorts of Haxion Brood enemies can be a whole pushover in the event that they didn’t gang up in opposition to you. They all have pretty low well being, and fairly predictable assaults. The problem of those encounters is drastically elevated, nonetheless, when there’s multiple miniboss to take care of. With these fights, you’ll must attempt to maintain each enemies in your sights as a lot as doable, and also you’ll should be very cautious that you simply don’t overcommit to attacking one, as a result of the opposite may simply punch you into the bottom whilst you’re doing it.

The Haxion Brood Commando and the Bounty Droid are each much more annoying than the common Bounty Hunter, as a result of they each utilise cost assaults that are tough to keep away from as a result of they observe you as you progress, and take off a very good chunk of your well being once they hit. The very worst encounter you may come throughout, for my part, is the place a Bounty Droid is paired up with a Commando. If you see this, you’ll should train excessive warning on the upper problem ranges.

The Bounty Droid’s different assaults are pretty simple to know. He has one different unblockable assault, which is definitely a combo of two unblockables one after the opposite: a punch adopted by a slam. They’re each pretty sluggish assaults which can be simple to dodge. Otherwise, he has a three-step sequence of blockable punches, and he’ll additionally often fireplace a barrage of normal blaster photographs at you. These are all simple to take care of. The actually troublesome factor is dodging his cost, notably while you’re centered on the opposite enemy on the time.

The Commando utilises a greater variety of powers and assaults than the opposite two, however once more their cost is the worst of all of them. Besides this, there’s the occasional flash grenade which blinds you for a short while however is in any other case of little consequence; a shockwave if you happen to get too shut, very like the Bounty Hunter’s flamethrower; and a sequence of normal blaster photographs.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Haxion Brood Commando

Unfortunately there isn’t any energy shot to benefit from with the Commando like there may be with the Bounty Hunter, however you may nonetheless simply take care of one by getting up shut and private, delivering a robust strike that sends them crashing to the ground, after which following up with some extra assaults.

The most harmful of the three is unquestionably the Bounty Droid, just because you may’t manhandle it like you may with the opposite two. But the trick with these fights is unquestionably to concentrate on damaging the weakest enemy (the Bounty Hunter if there may be one, adopted by the Commando) whereas defending in opposition to each enemies without delay in addition to you may. Make use of terrain and obstacles everytime you want time to heal up, and be sure you have sufficient Stim Canisters to maintain you going!
