Focus On Countering

Focus On Countering

Due to his reliance on his fists, Rude will constantly try to close the gap between you, and deal damage at close range. Use Punisher mode to counter several of his attacks and fill up his Stagger gauge.

Use Wind Attacks

Rude is particularly weak to wind attacks. You should try to pepper him with wind attacks when you have the chance. This will give you a window to deal massive damage to Rude!

Watch Out For Shockwaves

Watch Out For Shockwaves

After enough damage has been done to Rude, he will start to use new attacks. These include punching the ground to create a shockwave, and causing the ground beneath you to erupt. This will require you to dodge out of the way!
