Telegraphs His Attacks
Goliath's attacks are pretty easy to dodge due to their slow wind up. When he starts his attack animation, stop your combo, dodge out of the way.
Steer Clear Of His Fire Vacuum Attack
Goliath will also attack with fire from his belly that will suck in anything in its path. It is best to run away from the Fire Vacuum's direction, and Break Away when you are caught.
Collect Green Orbs When Low On Health
When you are low on health, it is best to keep an eye out for Green Orbs in the area to restore some of your health. It is best only to collect these, when your health is dangerously low.
Use Guns To Chip Away At His Health
There are times when Goliath will not let you near him because of his attacks. If you are far away, you can use your guns to chip away at his health.
Charge Up Devil Breakers To Deal Massive Damage
You can charge up your Devil Breakers to deal a ton of damage to the Goliath. It is best to use the Gerbera since it can shoot a laser beam from far away.
