    The final boss in this game is a pain in arse, He will make you hate the developers I can guarantee it. Anyways I had some amazing tips from CRUEZILLA which helped me a lot so i'm just going to copy and paste

    - counter the punches then hit him loads
    - when he rides his hat go under where he will land and hold block to instantly counter
    - when he throws hat move in and hit him loads
    -when he slaps him self hit loads, then roll when he jumps then hit more
    - when he does the purple move, roll away quickly
    - when he whistles punch loads, if you knock him down the robots won't come and you get loads of hits in
    - if robots come shoot them down and then return to the above
    - it is extremely difficult so just keep it up :)

    For the playthrough in general the counter move is your best friend and learning enemy patterns is key. If you are Mike use YXXYXXXX and Dorian YXXXXXXXXXX, These moves do the highest damage! Make sure to fully upgrade yourself and don't miss collectables or the RP before proceeding to the wilderness as you can't go back for some stupid reason.
    Good luck!
    If your going for this, Read the comments for some great tips on cancelling combos, Some people are managing infinite combos with the trick! Good luck!

    WcbezoekerI found a good way to beat Vendetta in 3-8.

    I was not able to defeat Vendetta using conventional means. He turns purple/invincible at random moments after he does his spin move and I was not able to guard block him. So I tried to kill him with the gun only and it worked on my first try. This is not a quick method mind you and it took me close to an hour to pull off. What is nice about this strategy is that it should work on hard difficulty as well because it is not too hard to achieve.

    There are 2 main reasons why this works well. For the first half of his health bar, Vendetta is keeping his distance if you don't go close to him. He will not cross the middle line of the map. The only attack he uses is the laser attack which you can easily avoid. Watch the first video for an impression.

    So the only thing you do is dodge and wait in the corner for the meter to fill up, dodge the lasers, and then fire the gun when the meter is full. It takes around 25 min until the health bar is halved.

    For the second half of his health bar, Vendetta starts to use his meteor attack. This attack can be easily avoided by walking around the map. You do not need to run or roll to evade it. Occasionely, he will use the laser attack. This is annoying because, usually, you cannot see the laser before it hits you. This laser attack is the main reason you will lose health since you can't see the laser most of the time.

    Keep walking around the map until the gun is fully loaded and fire it in between the meteor attacks to hurt Vendetta. Repeat until he is dead.

    Tips
    - Running is not required
    - Do not get to close to the corners of the map. Sometimes you can get hit by a meteor if it spawns there.
    - Vendetta can do other attacks if you get close to him.
    - When Vendetta does his laser attack in the second half, try to get to a position where you can see the laser. Often I had to dodge the first wave on luck/skill and I could anticipate the second wave because I was able to see it.
    - You can hear when Vendetta starts his laser attack. Practise this in the first half of the fight when you can see him. In the second half, you usually do not see him start it.
    - Loosing health is not crucial. I did the last quarter of the battle without health packs.
    - Vendetta's health is higher than the health bar displays on the screen. In the video you can see that I walked to him when the bar was empty as I anticipated that he would be dead. But he wasn't so watch out for that.

    Note: I did this on normal difficulty. If I am ever able to reach chapter 3-8 on hard difficulty (I am stuck on 3-1) I will try this strategy on hard and update the solution.

    Alternative Strategy - The "War Of Attrition" Method

    First of all, fuck this game and fuck this boss. While I often moan that modern games are too easy there is a big difference in a good honest challenge which pits player vs AI and games where half the battle is trying to cope with the shitty game mechanics and projectiles shot off screen.

    The problem with me playing as Dorian and moving through the levels using the gun and spamming the jump kick (cn_dpad + cn_Y) is that when I eventually reached the final boss, I was under powered and found myself unable to go toe to toe with him even using the other strats others have described.

    However the strat I ended up using worked well, and I beat him after about 15 attempts or so. I would suggest switching off the woeful in-game music and perhaps putting on some of your own, or just avoid distractions in general.

    Note: This strat will take a lot longer to defeat the boss then the other strats described on this site (35 minutes in my case) so this is not for the impatient.

    100%-50% of bosses' health bar

    At first, don't engage him, simply start sprinting clockwise around the edge of the stage whilst watching the boss carefully, it is important that you preserve the health packs so avoid breaking any of them as much as you can. If you sprint around the arena, the boss will rarely be able to catch you unless you are careless. When he throws his hat, you should avoid it just by sprinting but it is worth putting in a "safety" roll (cn_B) to ensure the hat doesn't just nick you. When he smacks his arse, he will leap towards you and fireballs will fall from the ceiling. When this happens, just concentrate on just avoiding the fireballs and try not to stop and wait for them to fall before moving, as the boss' jump will put him closer and give him a chance to inflict some serious damage. The only time you should attack him is when he does his sprinting attack. If you are sprinting around, he will always miss and there will be a couple of seconds for you to hit him with a jumping kick (cn_dpad + cn_Y) before rolling away and back to sprinting. You should inflict most of your damage with the gun, so when there is a healthy gap between you and the boss, unload on him. Note however, that your gunfire will break the health pots, and you may end up wasting a pack, so during this period try to only shoot south west.

    Note: In my successful attempt, I accidentally broke and collected the southern most health pack at full health. If this happens to you, it shouldn't cause too many disasters. In fact, it will give you a much wider angle in which to fire off your gun, which will make this stage quicker.

    50%-40% of bosses' health

    It will take a while, but eventually he will start introducing his "purple" attack. It has a big AOE, so roll away to the furthermost opposite edge and wait for him to finish before beginning to sprint again. You might get slightly caught by this attack given the AOE, but if you have 1-2 of your health packs left you should be able to afford some hits.

    40%-0% of bosses health

    Eventually he will start summoning his robot minions. Continue to sprint around the edge whilst keeping a sharp eye on them. You should be able to keep out of their range most of the time, however there is no way to completely avoid one of the little bastards taking a pot shot at you. this is why you need to switch your main focus to them, as the only clue you will have that they are about to fire is a visual cue. You can then block or roll away from the projectile. While each shot won't drain too much health individually, if you are sloppy then your health bar will be drained in no time. During this period your gun will become your best friend. About half energy will be enough to take out the robots and do some damage to the boss, or waiting for it to recharge to full energy will obviously take out the robots while taking a good chunk of the boss' health. When there are no robots, stop sprinting around and instead continue to sprint in a tight circle at about mid range from the boss. You are at slightly more risk from him getting in his combos, but you also want him to prevent him summoning more robots for as long as possible. When he leaps backwards sprint in and use the double jump kick (cn_dpad + cn_Ycn_Y) to knock him over, get two hits in and avoid having to deal with more robots at least for a short while. If he manages to summon them, go back to sprinting around the edge until your gun has enough ammo to take them out. Rinse, repeat and eventually you will defeat this bastard of a boss. The ending cinematic suggests there might be a sequel. Don't do it, Rimlight Studios! Just don't!

    (Note: While there is a chance that all of the health packs may be gone before the final stage of the fight, if they are still there, I suggest using them in this order - south, north east and then north. This will give you a wider angle to fire your gun without worrying about wasting them.

    Note: Even though the boss' health bar might appear drained, he actually has slightly more health than his bar suggests, so only stop fighting once the cinematic starts. I found this out the hard way in my 2nd attempt when I had thought I had defeated him, and had preceded to drop the controller and pump my fists in the air. The boss, still alive despite having no health strolled over to me during my moment of bliss and kicked my head in, So be careful.


    Good luck!

    Hard to tell if this is useful, but from testing so far, only need one health pack to take down a quarter of the boss's health. In the other methods, takes 3 health packs to do the same.
    @count023 It is a very defensive strat. Probably the biggest challenge is to concentrate for the length of time required.
    Posted by Chezwig on 09 Jun 16 at 02:40
    count023I don't have a problem with that, I do get slammed by the minidrones in the end, I can't get close enough to him to take the drones on without getting my ass handed to me by his combos, and from range eventually I get bitten to death by his minidudes, even if I manage to evade most of their shots

    Has this actually worked for others? It seems like I lose two health backs before getting to 50% damage, and these days I can take the boss down to 25% health with the other method before getting overrun.
    Posted by count023 on 09 Jun 16 at 08:28
    ChezwigI had no problem getting to a good range to shoot down his drones. Are you firing too quickly after your ammo recharges?

    Here's a video guide for 2-8 boss battle...

    I Just followed bigsmok3r's text guide. But this video can help you.

    When boss's HP is under 40%, he summons his minion.
    So when boss's HP reaches 40%, you must bite him like a mad dog to prevent summoning.

    KanchanaburiGreat job on the video. I cannot wait to be frustrated with this but I cannot complete 2-5 for several months of attempting it.

    NetgetsKanchanaburi // 2-5 is most diffiicult stage. 2-6&7 are not problem. You need to practice counter attack to Cammeleon's gun. Good luck
