    Oh boy, this fight is arguably the hardest in the game, even more so than
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***
    . If you had trouble with the Theseus fight before, this one will be tricky.

    In order to fight Extreme Measures Theseus, you’ll have to set EM in the pact of punishment to level 3 (I believe this sets the heat to 6 by itself, if you’re looking to find an Erebus gate, or claim skellys first prize).

    This also means that not only do you have to clear the new elysium fight, but to even get there you’ll have to clear the remixed bosses of Tartarus and asphodel as well.

    The Tartarus fight
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***
    and the asphodel fight
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    Like all the other extreme measure boss fights, it remixes the boss in a new challenging way. When you first enter this fight, you’ll notice Theseus
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***
    . His move set until you get him to half health has been completely changed, and he will not only shoot more ranged attacks at you, but charge around the room and keep up with your dodging more. Asterius has updated armor too, but his move set more or less is the same. Theseus only has his new move set until you get him to half health, in which he behaves as he normally would without EM3 for the rest of the match

    The best advice for beating these two is to upgrade yourself as much as you can through the mirror, keepsakes, chthonic companions, weapon aspects, and even by using the olympians keepsakes to build a boon run that suits you. For gameplay during the actual fight, I would recommend focusing Theseus as much as you can. Allowing him to run around with his alternate move set, while also juggling Asterius rushing you down is a death sentence. The quicker you can take him to half, the better your chances of victory are.

    Other than that, never stop spamming the dodge button and use every ounce of damage output you can to take these two down. Good luck, may the gods bless you!

    Again, DO NOT feel discouraged if you’re getting to this fight and losing, it’s genuinely one of the hardest fights in the entire game.

    BK BuDHaSuper easy, I thought I had to beat the final boss Hades with extreme measures, nope just the 3rd boss!

    Pedle ZelnipSame as the others said, didn't seem challenging really at all. Coasted through it on my first try.

    EnduroWish the Achievement text itself indicated that you need EM #3. I turned it on, with Heat Level 1 and beat it first try (very easy), and was wondering why it didn't unlock. Guess I should have checked here first.

    After you after completed your first escape attempt the Pact of Punishment will be revealed where you can add things to make your run more difficult. One of these is "Extreme Measures". Essentially it changes up the boss fights, makes them harder. You need to turn this on and it has to be the 3rd level of it and then go through the run and defeat Theseus and Asterious. After leaving their battle arena it will unlock. Make sure you're prepared for it as it won't be easy.
