Take Cover Behind Pillars

The Arsenal will send a barrage of bullets your way that can easily halve your HP bar. Locate the pillars on the field & use it as a physical shield against most of The Arsenal's attacks.

2. Shoot Drones To Take Down Barrier

Shoot Drones To Take Down Barrier

The Arsenal starts the fight with several drones protecting it with a barrier. Using Barrett's gun, take them down first to be able to damage the boss.

3. Avoid Electric Circles On Floor

Avoid Electric Circles On Floor

When The Arsenal summons electric circles on the floor, make sure to move away from it. This attack can damage you even if you're hiding behind a pillar so avoid the rings at all cost!

4. Focus Damage On Weak Spots

Focus Damage On Weak Spots

When The Arsenal charges up its weaponry, mainly the Main Cannon and Laser Cannon, they will become weak spots. Take note of this & use your powerful ranged attacks to do heavy damage to these parts.

5. Boss Becomes Mobile During 2nd Phase

Boss Becomes Mobile During 2nd Phase

The Arsenal will start moving when it gets to its 2nd phase. It'll start charging at you so dodge sidewards to avoid getting run over and hit.

6. Becomes Pressured After Pulse Cannon

Becomes Pressured After Pulse Cannon

The Arsenal will use the Pulse Cannon move several times when its HP has been lowered significantly. Avoid this attack & immediately attack the boss as it will be Pressured & the Stagger gauge will fill up faster.

The Arsenal - Moves & Counters

The Arsenal Moves & Counters

Move Details / Counters
Primary Fire Uses its right cannon to fire at a target. Use the pillars to keep yourself safe from harm or target the Main Cannon to deal heavy damage.
Saturation Fire Showers a target with dozens of bullets from its left gun. Hide behind pillar to avoid taking damage.
Secondary Fire Shoots a 3-4 rounds of bullets from its upper weaponry. Guard, dodge, or hide behind pillars to evade the bullets.
Voltaic Discharge Sends out three electric waves on the ground. Keep your distance or stay to the far side to avoid the waves.
Homing Laser Fires lasers that home in on their targets. Guard to lessen damage you receive. Laser Cannon becomes a weak spot, so deal damage by switching characters.

Firewall Shoots 2 lasers forward to create walls of fire on the field. Avoid the lasers and the flames or you'll get damaged.
Pulse Cannon Shoots a very powerful laser from its midsection. Avoid and then counter to quickly fill the Stagger gauge.

If you target ****nals weakness, the arm, and cause enough damage it will stun it and Red XIII will stagger one drone.
