The Airbuster has a massive health pool of 32848 and you'll need to deplete that within a 21 minute and 30 seconds time limit. Go beyond the time limit and you'll need to redo the whole fight from the start.

Use Lightning Attacks to Build Stagger

Use Lightning Attacks to Build Stagger

The Airbuster's stagger can be built up faster using Lightning abilities and attacks. Since it's also weak to lightning, it will do more damage to it as well.

Fight has Multiple Phases

Defeat the Left and Right Arm First

Defeat the Left and Right Arm First

During the second phase, the Left and Right Arm of the Airbuster will separate from the body and attack you independently. Since they have longe range attacks, it's better to focus on them first.

Hide from Airbuster's Giant Laser

During the windup for the giant laser, quicly run to the side paths to escape from it. Since it's a vertical attack, it won't hit you from any of the sides.

Main Garret in Final Phase
