    I found Cerberus isn't like the other boss fights (Medusa, Cyclops, Minotaur) where you can sit back and strafe at range and pepper him with arrows. I kept getting baked by his ranged fire ball shots and dying before I could do any kind of damage.

    I switched up to close quarters and took him out on my first attempt. I mainly used the Poison ability for my sword and dagger attacks and the Heal ability as needed. I didn't use any kind of over power attacks. I have most of my damage in Assassin and didn't bother shifting over to more Warrior damage.

    Cerberus starts out with a ranged fireball shot that he shoots one at a time from each head. Get in close and he won't use that attack. When you are up in his business, he will do 2 different AOE attacks. If you are in front, he will lunge forward at you. If you are at the side or behind, he will rear up and do a ground pound. Both attacks can be dodged by holding X to dodge/roll away. Then jump in and hack and slash.

    Once you knock down half of his health, he bursts into flames and the ranged attack changes to 3 fireballs at the same time (one from each head) so you really want to be in close. It also adds a sweeping flame thrower attack to the front. It was pretty easy to just stay to the side and dodge/roll away from the ground pounds.

    Cerberus does try to jump away every once in a while but there is time to charge back in. If he happened to set me on fire, I could roll and heal then get back in to hack away.

    Good luck.

    TheLightMasterThis achievement still hasn’t popped for me despite beating him multiple times. So frustrating.

    JeffMommFantastic solution. I used poisoned daggers and this went very smoothly. I added overcharge attacks when I could. I think I only lost 1 segment of health. Thanks for the tips!

    Brett Holte10My character was no longer in the underworld when I loaded the game today despite already doing the dialogue at the beginning of episode 2. Any thoughts? Is this a bug? Like there is no active quest available.

    CurfsMake sure to also get under him at the second half. His fireballs wont be able to reach you.

    ShadyShallDude, thank you for this. I tried at least a half a dozen times late at night and was so frustrated I gave up and went to bed. Before I went to bed I read your solution, and then I attempted it first thing in the morning. Got it on my first try. You are absolutely right, the secret is to get all up in his business. Excellent solution!

    DangerCensoredlaugh I remember failing a bunch before I figured it out so I knew it was worth sharing. Glad it helped.
