[edit] Giant Snake (Boss #1)

BOSS #1: Giant Snake
DIFFICULTY: Medium
SUGGESTED WEAPON: BAZOOKA w/ EXPLOSIVE ROUNDS
SUGGESTED HEALING ITEMS: 1 full healing item, 1 GREEN HERB
STRATEGY: This boss can be lethal, but it's not too hard, and there's plenty of room to maneuver. Take your BAZOOKA and shoot it several times while dodging its severe bite attacks. If you're hit once or twice, you will be poisoned in a way where a BLUE HERB will do no good against it. I actually recommend this, as it *might* save you a healing item assuming you had Barry save you from the Shotgun trap. If not, then avoid getting poisoned and just keep attacking it until it dies. You should have 12 EXPLOSIVE ROUNDS, more than enough, but if for some reason it's still alive, then use the SHOTGUN as a backup. Stay behind the snake while running circles around it, and shoot it. Eventually, it will retreat and you'll have won.


[edit] Giant Snake in First Person Mode (Boss #4)

DIFFICULTY: Hard
SUGGESTED WEAPON: Combat Knife
SUGGESTED HEALING ITEMS: a few full healing items
STRATEGY: The Giant Snake in first person mode appears in the same room Plant 42 was in the Guardhouse. This boss battle is difficult because you may have limited healing items and the Giant Snake only gets hurt in certain circumstances. Stab the Giant Snake when it opens its mouth, and then when it backs its head to begin its lunge, try to predict where on the screen its mouth will be when it begins its attack, and then stab it in defense. If you hit it, the snake will stop its attack, and either wait or launch a second or third attack right away. If you pull off an "issen" (a powerful, flashing slash that kills any enemy once hit; name taken from Onimusha) in its mouth, it will roll its head back a little, leaving its underbelly exposed. Now, as fast as you can, stab the body of the Giant Snake while it isn't invincible. Eventually, if I had to guess, about 50 or so clean hits to its mouth or belly will kill the Giant Snake.


[edit] Giant Snake Rematch (Boss #3)

BOSS #3: Giant Snake Rematch
DIFFICULTY: Medium
SUGGESTED WEAPON: BAZOOKA w/ EXPLOSIVE ROUNDS
SUGGESTED HEALING ITEMS: 1 full healing item, 1 GREEN HERB
STRATEGY: It's the snake from earlier. If you've had the SERUM, it can't poison you again. But like before, this boss can be lethal, but it's not too hard. However, there's less room to maneuver than before. Like the previous fight, take your BAZOOKA and shoot it several times while dodging its severe bite attacks. Use the SHOTGUN as a backup. Stay behind the snake while running circles around it, and shoot it. Eventually, it will dissolve and you'll have won.


[edit] Giant Spider (Boss #5)

BOSS #5: Giant Spider
DIFFICULTY: Easy
SUGGESTED WEAPON: BAZOOKA + FLAME ROUNDS
SUGGESTED HEALING ITEMS: BLUE HERB, GREEN HERB
STRATEGY: Two to five well placed hits with the BAZOOKA will finish it off. The FLAME ROUNDS from the previous room are perfect for it. Try to avoid getting poisoned.


[edit] Plant 42 (Boss #2)

BOSS #2: Plant 42
DIFFICULTY: Easy/Medium
SUGGESTED WEAPON: BAZOOKA w/ FLAME ROUNDS
SUGGESTED HEALING ITEMS: 1 full healing item, 1 GREEN HERB
Whether or not you opted to make V-JOLT, shoot it with your BAZOOKA ammo. It uses vicious whips to "whip Jill into shape." These can be easily dodged if you shoot and are quick to get out of the way. Thankfully, being a plant, FLAME ROUNDS in particular are effective against Plant 42, so it should, at most, take about 4 to 6 rounds to get rid of it. After you damage it enough, if you used V-JOLT, it dies. If you didn't make V-JOLT, Barry will come in and finish the job.


[edit] Tyrant (Boss #6)

BOSS #6: Tyrant
DIFFICULTY: Easy
SUGGESTED WEAPON: MAGNUM + MAGNUM ROUNDS
SUGGESTED HEALING ITEMS: full healing item
STRATEGY: This battle isn't that hard. Just run away from it, and then shoot it with the MAGNUM from a safe distance. It won't run after you, so you can keep running around the room in circles, shooting it until it falls. It should take a maximum of seven or so MAGNUM ROUNDS to down it (maybe more, maybe less).


[edit] Tyrant Rematch (Boss #7)

BOSS #7: Tyrant Rematch
DIFFICULTY: Medium
SUGGESTED WEAPON: MAGNUM + MAGNUM ROUNDS, ROCKET LAUNCHER
SUGGESTED HEALING ITEMS: 2 full healing items
STRATEGY: This rematch can be difficult if you have one or few healing items. Arm the MAGNUM, get as far away from the Tyrant as the MAGNUM's radius will allow, and shoot. It's difficult to avoid the Tyrant's slash attacks, and they do tons of damage. The timer is also ticking down. After you shoot between 7 to 14 MAGNUM ROUNDS into the Tyrant, and time is close to running out, Brad will drop a ROCKET LAUNCHER that has 4 rounds in it. Grab the ROCKET LAUNCHER, and shoot the Tyrant to destroy it. Try not to miss, since there are only 4 rounds. After it is destroyed, the game ends.
