The sure fire way to beat the flamethrower dude on hard

First of all you can all thank me in advance because the flamethrower guy is a biznitch on hard mode.

the trick to it is all you really have to do is rush him as soon as you can, avoid his fire once, hit him with the y button while you are dashing so you do a running slash then he will be stunned for a second allowing you to hit him two more times (he then smashes you with his gun and you go flying back) or instead you can wait for him to recover and then running slash him again, wait untill he recovers again then running y button slash again and just keep repeating.

so basically you run in running slash him, give him 2 seconds to recover running slash again repeat repeat repeat.... he wont even get one attack off. after the first part of him is done he will change his moves up but the trick still works just give him a second to recover and hit him with the slash again. this makes him the easiest boss in the game instead of the second hardest

thanks for the strategy. i can confirm that it works like a charm, it only took me 3 tries to beat him on hard, and before i read this post it took me around 10 tries to beat him on normal.

great work man!

I didn't really find him any harder on hard. Just did the horizontal dash....then jumped and pressed Y. Did that til his tank blew. Did that another 2 times. He was hard playing through the first time....but once you know how to beat him....he's not really any harder

Yeah, that shit does work. It only took me 1 try after reading it to beat him. He wasn't hard at all. Not 1 hit.

Ok in light of not being able to do this method everyone speaks of, I came across another effective method. In my frustration and aggravation I started combo'ing faster on him, and he really didnt have a chance to breathe. It's hard to explain really, but if you can attack him fast enough and keep a combo going, you can dish out a lot of damage each time you run up on him. I couldnt dodge his fire for anything.

Here's another strategy, the one that I used to kill him on my first playthrough(Frustrating boss nonetheless!)

-Avoid the Fire(or if you get knocked down, Rush him while he points and laughs)
-Hit him with Y in the Run
-hit him twice(I used X)
-Use Focus and Backward Flip away from his melee attack
-Combo him with X or Y up to 3 times
-Focus Back Flip
-Rinse & Repeat

By far it is easiest to just rush him after avoiding his fire and to the jump and y move repeatedly because he is stunned after each hit so you can just spam it until he moves onto his next stage. Beat him on both difficulties without getting hit this way .

xyyy is faster.

Im not sure if everyone is talking about the a, y move where you jump and slice down and a little white line goes in the ground and hits him. But if you are, that takes forever, and was easily getting messed up for me.

An extremly easier way, is to rush him and slo-mo Y,Y,Y,Y. I think it's four, not exactly sure, but you will know when the combo ends. If you keep hitting him with this and don't back off, he can't do anything back to you. The first time I tried it, it worked, in about 30 sec he was dead.

Dude your awesome, it took me 2 days to beat that bastard the first time! Hard mode took me 3 tries. I would add after you make contact with him count 1-2 then slash again, and rush him after every cut seen. On to the next crappy boss fight, thx again!

I guess I fail hardcore...I've re-read this thread several times, he keeps getting me into his flamethrower combos even if I let him rest for a second, or two seconds, it's like if I go to fast he throws me, I go to slow he flames me, or he just starts spamming the fireballs that kill me...ugh...I'll do it..but I wanted to vent my frustration.

maladar - using a focus dodge, if you have enough focus can help you avoid these - or just dash parallel to the fireball perhaps

i'm being owned by the last stage, where he creates the two rings - my jump timing is off - i'm getting frustrated!

regards
phil

EDIT: has anyone else noticed the cheapness of this guy - i mean seriously - a flamethrower, that constant streams, fireballs and causes shockwaves - hell i want one! additionally he can melee with it without bursting the cannister....

ANOTHER EDIT: well finally i have defeated this bastard and i'm proud of my happy-dance even if everyone else just finds it embarassing

The best tactics for beating the flamethrower boss on hard is:

The first time round he uses his flamethrower, as he starts to move the flames one way you come in from the opposite direction hit him twice with Y button and jump out of the way, you should get him to his second stage without getting hit.

On his second stage, he uses like fire rockets and a jump attack that has an area of effect damage, best thing to do is stay relativly close to him, so he doesnt fire the rocket things, when he jumps up, jump over the ring of fire and Y button him twice, repeat this until he goes into stage 3.

This time round he uses his rocket jump but theres 3 rings of fire, each one can kill you outright, best thing to do is stay back, so the first 2 rings fade out before they hit you, on his 3rd ring attack from the air run towards him, time your jump and hit him with Y button and jump out of the way, if you stay closehe will rocket jump, just run away and repeat the method.
