This is the final ‘real‘ chapter of the game and features the closest Driver SF has to a boss fight. Obviously, there are spoilers below.

Your task is to take down Jericho, but you must endure three stages to do this. The first simply has you chasing him through the city streets whilst he shifts into vehicles and tries to collide with you. This is similar to chapter 4 and the same advice applies: keep your speed up and look for the lightning bolts and glowing red cars. Generally, most of the cars he sets up for collision will miss you if you’re at high speed. There’s a lot of other traffic on the road this time, but you’ll find Jericho clears a good path if you can stay close behind him

The second stage of this fight is probably the hardest. Jericho will literally hurl cars at you. Whilst they initially may seem difficult to avoid, you can keep swerving to miss most of them. Keeping close behind Jericho or large vehicles can also shield you from hits. Despite your best efforts, it seems some cars can home in you and are possibly even scripted to be unmissable. Stay on your guard and do your best to keep up with Jericho.

During the final stage of the fight, Tanner realises that he too can throw cars. Whilst the game would like you to dodge Jericho’s cars whilst throwing your own, it’s actually pretty easy to throw Jericho’s cars back. Look for the telltale glowing red cars, shift and quickly get the reticule over the flying car whilst mashing the A button to redirect it midflight into Jericho. After each throw, you’ll shift back to Tanner, but it’s not really necessary for you to drive as him. Stay shifted and get ready to intercept anything thrown at you.

Once Jericho’s car explodes, you’ll hit another cut scene, the achievement will unlock and you’ll go directly to the final mini-chapter in the game.
