Stuck on Chapter 2 - 'Defend the Viewing Platform"

I am playing on Hard difficulty and, during this chapter, Alan is accompanied by a man with a gun, but Alan himself has no gun during this section. You have to fight off several waves of enemies. I can get to the part where a big guy with a huge axe appears, but by that point I have almost no health and no flares. The big guy is just too strong. He blocks your flashlight with his arm and charges at you. I have to use up all my flares just to survive up to that point. Just wondered if anyone has any tips for this part, I've been at it for a while now but I'm not getting anywhere with it

I know the part you are talking about & since you have already used your flares, your only option is dodging. A successful dodge will buy you enough time to get a good distance before he catches up. Not sure but a quick blast with the flashlight might knock him back buying you a couple of seconds more as well.

Dodge, flashlight blast & running to the next light otherwise restart the chapter & try not to use up your flares before this point and just dodge/flashlight blast/run to each light.

In front of the first gate the kidnapper is trying to open. When looking towards the gate, on your left you will have an emergency kit thingy hanging on a tree or pole.
Open that and you will find more flares and battery's.

Asura's Wrath is an underestimated game.

It takes a little time to get pass this part. I had to do it a few times also.

it's a piece of cake even on nightmare, dodge dodge dodge and eventually a flare, I guarantee you won't run out of them if u use them just when tke taken guys (not just one of them - u use flares even when one gets close to you I suppose, don't panic) gets really close to you.. like really really close


as I said before, it was very easy on Nightmare, I used only 4 flares on this part (before the final defence had 12 pieces !!) - did it just yesterday.. currently @ ep4.

This part I got killed 4 times until I figured out how to coordinate the flares with where the guy was shooting. It was a tough spot.

To pass this part you should point your flashlight at the closest enemy and when they get close hold Rb to hold the flare till enemy shields are removed.

I haven't played on hard difficulty. I do not like when the hard difficulty means unlimited respawning enemies.
