Bring Amped-Up Weapons & Ammo
Lady Dimitrescu has a lot of HP, so you need to deal a lot of damage to take her down. Customize your weapons to get them to deal plenty of damage and don't forget to bring lots of ammo with you.
We recommend bringing a weapon that can deal long-distance shots like the F2 Rifle.
Aim At Her Human-Like Body
Lady Dimitrescu becomes a terrifying creature with little resemblance with her human form. This form enables her to fly and deal devastating attacks. Her main weakness is her human-like body, so aim majority of your attacks there.See How To Beat Lady Dimitrescu
