Yet another Boss battle in this game that is the same as another. As you play through and defeat Oil Baron then Madam, this one is no big shock.

As first the boss shoots things out of his beard that you can easily avoid. He also 'drops' his beard down on you but that is easy to miss. Later he causes it to 'rain' on the stage and you simply need to position the GS where the rain isn't. At times he will tip on his head and spin and that is just a case of moving the GS behind him.

After the spin he is open to being shot so just blast away but watch as he will start to defend, although you can kick shooting. As with the other bosses you are told to hit him with the GS who then finally throws a punch and you have probably eaten away half the Boss's heath by then.

The one trick he has that caught me out was he makes a circle with is beard (or is it wind) that you have to keep the GS inside of - hit the edges and you lose health, You might still be able to shoot at this point so it's a bit of a 'pat your head and rub your stomach' exercise.

Keep targetting and shooting and he will go down and you end with three straight down punches to squash him (just like the last two bosses - they clearly ran out of ideas!)
