This boss fight happens in Brookhaven Hospital and is the first boss fight you encounter in the game*. the fight is fairly easy to fight if you have the shotgun and enough ammo to do it. The only things that really throws this fight off is the camera angle of the room, the size of the room, and the games movement controls -Both are, for lack of a better term, cumbersome.

There are two Flesh Lips in the room with you and you may want to move before you start fighting because one drops down pretty much right next to you when the whole thing begins.

I recommend using the corners of the room the best you can and aim at the Flesh Lips as they come towards you. Fire 2 or 3 shots (2 really is the safest bet) and then circle to another corner, preferably the corner furthest from the bosses. From there try as hard as you can to get them bunched together so that both are hit with 1 shot, it will save you ammo.

When one Flesh Lips dies a third one falls from the ceiling. If you were lucky enough to have the other 2 bunched up then either both are dead or the one that didn't die should be soon, and can be finished off easily. Just use the same tactics as above, and if one of them falls before the other the fight just got that much easier on you.

I will say however that during my fight with this boss I did Kill one of them and the third Flesh Lip didn't drop down till I killed the one that was still alive. I seem to remember this happening back on the PS2 also, but I don't believe there was a way to tell which one would cause the third to spawn. Don't take your chances either way, treat the fight as if killing either one will spawn the third.

Also remember if you choose to use the Shotgun that it holds 6 shots, so every time your about to move go to your inventory screen and reload your gun manually, just to be safe; They can't hurt you -or move to you- when your on this screen, and reloading the shotgun otherwise is just slow.

Overall I never got hit in this fight at all, even when I was sure that one of them was going to get me before I moved (because I took a chance and fired an extra shot). Just remember that these guys are pretty slow, even when they're attacking; follow what I said above and the instincts you've already formed by playing the game through this far (because of the games dated enemy AI) and you should be fine.

Side note: I'd include how many bullets it took me to finish this fight, but I think its going to be more or less different for everyone depending on how bunched up their Lips were and whatever difficulty their game is set on. From what I understand generally 10 shots from the shotgun take down 1 Flesh Lip on normal.

*Thanks to spletchie for the reminder that people may want to know where this fight eve takes place :P
