Atomic Ray Should Be Stopped

At the latter half of the boss fight, the boss will use an Atomic Ray, every time you hit it the bar above will be lower. After reducing it to a certain point, you can remove it. Failing to stop the Atomic Ray will lead to huge damage so use Eikon Abilities and release your most powerful attacks.

How To Beat Infernal Eikon

Infernal Eikon
Avoid the Crimson Rush attack at the start by running.When behind, watch out for tail attacks.Make sure to immediately stay far away when Vulcan Burst is happening.

Avoid The Crimson Rush At The Start By Running From The Side

Ifrit will use "Crimson Rush" at the beginning of the battle, so avoid it by evading or dashing. After that the boss will still use the move so, be ready to dodge when Crimson Rush appears on the screen.

Evade Scorched Earth By Moving Sidewards

Scorched Earth, like Crimson Rush, can be dodged by Evading or Dashing to the side. If it is used at close range, you can use dodge to Attack.

Move Away When Vulcan Burst Is Shown

When you see the name of the Vulcan Burst technique, move away from Ifrit's surroundings. Since the Attack range is wide, It is safer to dash away to a safe distance than to try to Evade.
