RE8 Mini Bosses - How To Beat
Prepare Powerful Weapons
Normal mini-bosses not only deal more damage, but they have more HP as well. They would require powerful weapons like shotgun or bolt-action rifle to burst down effectively.
Don't Waste Too Much Ammo
A pitfall when fighting these mini bosses is that you might have to expend more ammo to beat them. This can leave you scrambling for resources in the next story encounters. Make sure to have powerful weapons like the Grenade Launcher and the Magnum before fighting them.Best Weapons List
