The Freeze Ray is a 1 hit kill on the Energy Leech even on Insane difficulty

Well, basically a 1 hit kill. What you'll need to do is swim up the the boss and pull the trigger. You will get frozen, your ego will drop to nothing and your screen will be flashing red but you will see the the Energy Leech's health will completely deplete while you are frozen. Once you unfreeze, all you need to do is switch to a RPG and shoot him once and that will put his health in the red flashing state so you can start the QTE event to finish him off.

Just something I stumbled upon last night completely by accident and I reloaded to verify it works everytime and wasnt just a glitch. Hopefully this is helpful for those getting really frustrated at this boss fight. If you dont have the Freeze Ray, you can get one in the previous chapter.

Interesting. I'm going through on Easy right now for my pistol achievement, so I'll have to check this out when I get there. May make my insanity run slightly easier (though the worm wasn't really all that difficult compared to the other bosses.)

I found this out the other day and thought that it was maybe a glitch, good that you verified that it isn't.

Awesome find! Does anybody know where the Freeze Ray is in "The Clarifier" (The previous level)?

The retro freeze ray doesn't effect your cheevs. Only things that say CHEAT in their description do. You'll also receive a warning message when using CHEAT features.

BTW after beating Insane for the 50GS I found replaying Insane with Invincibility, Infinite Ammo, and Instagib on to be very therapeutic. Even the bosses are gibbed.

None that I've tried it on so far sadly. Energy leech seems to be the exception I think cause it's underwater.

I was just about to post this myself. Totally glad I found it when I did as I absolutely hated that leech on my normal run.

God dammit. I just did this the hard way on Insane and it took like 3 tries.

Good find though.

do you have to be using the retro freeze ray? if so how do you unlock it? I only beat the game on easy before attempting insane.

Too bad you get the gun so late in short campaign. Still a treat though. Well kind of.

I completed the game last week without noticing this post.... would have made my insane run so much easier. But then again I had a harder time with him on hard than I did on insane.
