The Black Cerberus fight has 2 phases. In the first phase you fight against the Black Cerberus and in the second phase you fight against a robot like P.A.X, the first boss in the game.

The 2 phases are repeated over and over again depending on damage done and/or time. Black Cerberus regenerates health in the robot phase. If it takes you too much time he will regenerate a lot of health. You have also a limited time during the fight against Black Cerberus and after a while he calls the robot and is hiding.

During the Black Cerberus fight dodge the attacks and wait that the attacks are over and hit Black Cerberus with your weapon 1 or 2 times and then dodge again the attacks and wait.

The robot phase is a little bit tricky. For the entire fight you have to hide under the roboter or he will hit you massivly. To force the robot to its knees so that you can do damage you have to do 2 things. At first remove the armor from the robots legs. After you destroy the armor the robot lifts one of his two legs. If one leg is in the air hit the other leg to force the robot to kneel down. For this step I use a fast weapon.

Kill the robot and the Black Cerberus enter the room again, rinse and repeat the steps until Black Cerberus is down.

I have discovered an exploit which makes defeating this guy 10 times easier.

If like me you found that Cerberus wasn't the problem it was the PAX units then this will benefit you. During the fight Cerberus will call in a PAX 3 to 4 times and while you are fighting his health recharges.

the following method prevents Cerberus calling in ANY additional PAX after the first one is defeated. It also prevents him from leaving the battle and recharging

What you need to do is simple but can be tricky. There are 2 large white metal silos with flashing red lights. When the first PAX comes out charge up the orange bar. However instead of hiding from his rockets you need to stand in front of EACH silo and Dodge the rockets. When the silos are destroyed finish off the PAX.

You now have CERBERUS all to yourself.

In terms of defeating him the most important tactic is stamina management. Don't blindly swing he will always win. Instead run in with sliding attacks no more then 2 at a time and only when the stamina has recharged. Also collecting the drone upgrade to provide shielding can be a massive help.

Stay close he has a deadly elemental ranged attack which he uses if you stray.

Here is a video I was able to defeat this guy my second attempt using this method after nearly 2 hours of relentless defeat. The video only captures me having PAX destroy one silo but you must have him destroy both.
