    Column XVII is the boss of Lost Museum--the sixth adventure.

    Clear out the minions every time they spawn. This is a top priority because many have ranged attacks, throw bombs or charge you, so use a fast melee weapon such as a spear or sword to interrupt their attacks to take care of them quick. Dodging constantly with rolls in-between attacks is a life-saver here.

    Keep your distance from the boss--using the default gun (the foam gun isn't as good) on the boss is effective. I wouldn't suggest melee weapons on the boss because touching the boss damages you and uses heavy attacks when you're near.

    Watch out for the boss' ranged attacks and stay away to avoid a devastating saw attack. This boss also has a charge attack with extended saws on both sides, giving it a wide berth--roll back and out of the way rather than to the side if you find yourself too close.

    The achievement pops after defeating the boss.

    SuperS0nicSamNo real strategy is needed for any boss. Just walk up and mash the attack button. If you die who cares you have unlimited lives.

    TwincatsThis is true, but in my experience it takes longer. I was able to kill the boss faster with ranged weapons. I wasn't getting hit every 1-2 seconds, getting stunned or knocked back (possibly off the level) and wasting time respawning which lowers dps.

    Also, what if they patch it where dying resets the boss HP or the whole adventure? Certain players are also reporting the boss achievements aren't popping. I'd like to know which strategy they used.

    CerocThe achievement didn't pop for me.. killed him twice. Will try again another day and report back.

    UPDATE: Tried it the day after and the achievement popped when I killed the boss. Great success!
