GenIVIV - Boss Battle Tips

Bring Shock & Corrosive Weapons

Bouncing Balls Can Be Destroyed

Shoot Down Floating Drones

GenIVIV will also summon drones to aid her. These drones fire at you during certain intervals. They can deal a lot of damage if they aren't dealt with as soon as possible so shoot them down as soon as they appear.
