Whiplash - Weakness & Tips
Weakness: Ice Bomb
You can use ice bomb to immobilize the Whiplash, allowing you to freely hit it. Time and aim your grenades right so that it can freeze the highly mobile Whiplash.
Use Rocket Launcher's Lock-On
The Rocket Launcher's Lock-On mod allows it to fire 3 homing rockets, enough to kill or stagger the Whiplash. Use this if you find yourself having trouble targeting the Whiplash.
Super Shotgun's Meat Hook Also Works
The Super Shotgun's Meat Hook attaches itself to the target, pulling the player close to the target. Use this to get near the Whiplash and blow it to bits using the Super Shotgun's tremendous burst damage.Check Out The Super Shotgun Guide Here!
Whiplash - Attack Patterns & Features
Will Actively Try To Flank & Sneak
The Whiplash will be seen slithering across the battlefield trying to sneak up and attack the player from the flanks or from behind. Be aware of your surroundings and be always on the move to prevent surprise attacks from this demon.
The Whiplash lashes its whip, dealing damage to those caught in its large arc. This is the Whiplash's most favored move and it will usually back away or move closer for a better position to use this. Back away or do a double jump to dodge this attack.
Ground Wave Attack
With its whip, the Whiplash drags the whip on the ground, creating a wave that travels to the player. A double jump or a quick dash to the sides negates this.
The Whiplash uses its two blades to deal damage to the player. It will usually do this once, then back away to perform whip attacks.
