Pretty much this is the same strategy that Hybrid Reeha used for his guide to Speed Isn't Everything. After defeating 2 Mavericks and triggering a cutscene, you will unlock hidden rooms containing a teleport capsule leading to Vile's hideout.

I recommend beating Tunnel Rhino and Volt Catfish first, in that order, and then go to Crush Crawfish's stage. Do NOT use ANY of the Ride Armors at all in the stage! Play the stage until you reach a small overhang with a life energy capsule beneath it. There's a hidden hole in the floor right under this overhang leading to the teleporter to Vile.

Vile first attacks you with a Ride Armor, which you must destroy first before he fights you himself. He'll have 2 attack patterns: first, he'll jump and drop a napalm mine that emits a small column of fire at you. Second, he'll jump up high and fire multiple shots at you in whichever direction you're standing/climbing at. Wall-climb up and air dash over Vile when he drops his napalm, and wall-climb up to shoot him while making his shots come at you while you drop down or slide down to miss you. Rinse and repeat.

Use ONLY your X-Buster to fight Vile, both in his Ride Armor and Vile himself; NO special weapons, period! I also suggest gathering up a few heart tanks and sub tanks prior to fighting Vile.

Good hunting.
