How To Beat Prologue Urizen
Focus Fire On The Crystal
When attacking Urizen, a red crystal will shield him from damage. Shatter the crystal in order to temporarily deal damage to Urizen.
Use Blue Rose To Attack From A Distance
Use Nero's gun Blue Rose in order to attack from a safe distance and while evading Urizen's ranged projectiles.
Upgrade Color Up
In order to increase the damage of Blue Rose, you must learn the skills Color Up 2 & 3 and Charge Shots 1 - 3. Although it's possible to win without these skills, it might take a longer time to beat Urizen without them.Check Out Nero Gameplay Guide - Ability & Weapon Tips Here!
Keep Moving Left and Right
His red, blue, and white projectiles will not hit you if you keep on moving left and right. While avoiding these shots, attack with your Blue Rose.
Jump To Avoid The Sweeping Laser
Urizen has a sweeping laser attack that moves from horizontally. Evade this by jumping and performing combos to keep you in air.
Attack Urizen After Destroying the Crystal
After the crystal shatters, particles of light will appear, and you can damage Urizen after a few seconds. Use Nero's Devil Bringer form only when the particles of light have completely disappeared, signifying that Urizen is vulnerable.
Repeat Damage Cycle On Urizen
You have a limited window to damage Urizen so make the most out of your attack opportunity. You will need to repeat the crystal destruction damage cycle for about 2-3 times.Check Out Urizen Boss Fight Guide: Moves & Tips Here!
