Cyberdemon (Tyrant) - Weakness & Tips
Slice With the Crucible
No weapon is more efficient and has the best bang for the buck against the Tyrant other than the Crucible. Crucible is a one-slice-kill when deployed against this bullet sponge.
Can Withstand A BFG Shot
Tyrant can withstand a shot from the BFG 9000 without being insta-killed, forcing you to fight it somewhat even if BFG is deployed. Save your BFG shot unless you're crowd controlling against the Tyrant.Check out All Weapons List Here!
Use Hit & Run Tactics With Cover
Tyrant's rockets are the primary dangers when facing it. You'll need cover to prevent being vaporized by its many volleys of attack. Luckily it is slow and can be easily flanked, so run from cover to cover using hit & run tactics to wear it down.Get The Basics Of Combat With Our Beginners Guide!
Deploy Shield If Stuck In Open
Use your Chaingun's shields if you must face Tyrant head on in the open. Tank his rockets attacks to get some good lead into him, or just as a measure to survive from critical damage.
Destroy Any Buff Totems Before Engaging
A buff totem will significantly increase the damage and speed of all enemies. Going against a tyrant while the mobs are super active is suicide, so always destroy Buff Totem before engaging.
Kill Any Archvile First As Well
Not only will Archvile act as a Buff totem to buff all enemies, it will constantly summon new enemies for you to fight. Eliminate Archvile before Tyrants if both are present.Check out How to Beat Archvile Here!
