Pain & Terror - Boss Battle Tips
Red Eyes Are Weak Spots
Pain & Terror's mech has several weak spots. Its glowing red eyes are vulnerable to corrosive damage so make sure to pack a corrosive weapon in this boss fight.
Red Fuse Boxes Around Body Are Also Weak
You can also deal critical hits around the mech's body, as long as they are red. The gas tank in its back, the fuse boxes around its armpits, and belly are all spots that are vulnerable to critical hits.
Run Away From Knife Chop
The mech will also summon a knife, raise it up, and chop down several times towards one direction. You have to run away from it and not towards it to avoid taking damage.
Crouch Slide To Escape Knife Crush
Another weapon the mech pulls out a flat metal plate with sharp stakes underneath. Look at the floor to know where it's gonna land then crouch slide to escape it.
Jump Or Crouch To Avoid Circling Blade
When the robot moves down and summons a circling blade, you need to either jump or crouch to avoid getting hurt from it. Check the height of the blade to know if you'll jump or crouch.
Check Floor To Avoid Fire Damage
The floor will also glow red in parts or as a whole, dealing fire damage to those who remain standing on them. Jump or run away to keep from getting hit.
Dodge Or Move To Side To Avoid Spinning Blades
The robot will also send vertical spinning blades towards you. Keep mobile, dodge & move to the side to avoid getting hit by the blades.
Core Appears When Yellow Bar Is Down
When you deplete the robot's yellow health bar, the Eridium Core will appear. Use your most powerful weapon to deal damage to it and destroy it quickly as it also sends out lasers that can hurt you.
