Bayonetta 2 Boss Battle Tips

In this guide, I’m going to share tips on how to defeat these bosses with a platinum rank.

Gomorrah
The first thing that you need to know is that in Flight Mode, Bayonetta can move anywhere along the horizontal axis. This boss has a couple of lethal attacks at its disposal which include fire-breath, swipe attacks, and biting attacks.

The best way to take out this boss is to be aggressive! While at a distance, give it a taste of your firepower and when up close, slash him down with your melee attacks.

Don’t let it swallow you or you’ll have to complete a Quick-Time event to avoid taking damage. Just keep on attacking it and you’ll finish this boss fight in no time!

Glamor
This boss fight is divided into two phases.

The first phase can be ended pretty quickly, provided that you play it right! As soon as you see Glamor lunge at you for a jaw-attack, dodge it and counter-attack with Witch Time. Like with Gomorrah, as soon as this boss gets back, start shooting it to deal damage.

The boss will also try to swipe-attack which can be treated in the same way as its jaw-attack.The second phase is pretty similar to the first phase, but the boss’ attacks come a lot faster.

Follow the same strategy as you did during the first phase and complete the Quick-Time Event to finish this boss battle.

Glamor During Chapter #3
Once again, this boss is divided into two phases.

During the first phase, the boss will try to attack you from a distance. You need to rely on your ranged weapons such as Love is Blue to keep dealing damage. It will also throw destructed buildings at you which deal massive amount of damage.

The best time to deal damage is when the boss tries to hit you up close. You need to dodge its attacks and enter Witch Time to counter-attack.

During the second phase, use the similar strategy as you did during the Prologue. Avoid the swipe-attacks and deal damage with your best weapon. You need to constantly deal damage from every range to end this boss fight quickly.

Masked Lumen During Chapter #4
This boss fight is divided into 4 phases!

During the first phase, you’ll note that this boss has a ton of attacks at its disposal including spear-attacks, fireballs, wolf-transformation attacks, ground-eruption attacks.

Don’t be afraid as almost all of these attacks can be dodged pretty easily! These attacks vary greatly when it comes to their execution speed so it may require a little bit of practice.

The strategy involved in beating this boss is fairly simple: dodge boss’ attacks and enter Witch Time to counter-attack. One important thing to keep in mind is the distance between your character and the boss.

Don’t go reckless if you see there is a large distance between your character and the boss. Another thing to watch out is the boss’ shield which it will put up for about six seconds. Once the shield is down, repeat the strategy provided above.

During the second phase, you need to stick to the strategy provided above, but with one little addition. The boss will call forth his angel to shake the ground which can be dodged. However, you need to go ahead and start a PPP combo to open up an opportunity for another PPPPP combo.

During the third phase, you’ll be flying, but sticking to the strategy provided above will help immensely. The boss will once again call forth his angel, but instead of an earthquake, he’ll execute a laser-attack which can be dodged with ease.

During the fourth phase, Madama Butterfly will enter the fray. Dodge the angel’s attacks to enter the Witch Time and use Madama to attack the angel for a quick victory.

Valor
Similar to many other boss fight, battle with Valor is also divided into two phases.

During the first phase, the boss tries to take advantage of the narrow space and flies around Bayonetta to hit her with either his shield or sword. Furthermore, he can also pin you down using his sword which triggers a QTE. The idea is to shoot him from a distance and hit hard with your sword at close range. He isn’t very tough, so it won’t be hard!

The second phase is almost identical to the first one, except that it takes place underwater. Stick to the strategy provided above and complete the QTE to take it out.

Insidious
Just as the battle begins, you need to focus on the boss’ eyes. After taking out the first eye, you’ll have to dodge a stream of missiles before focusing on the second eye.

This is a pretty short boss fight and as soon as destroying the second eye, you’ll have to complete a QTE to complete it.
