How to Defeat Apex Ravager

The basic Ravager variant is very weak against Purgewater and acid attacks. So use these two attacks wisely and timely to defeat Ravager with ease.

As for Apex Ravager, it is highly vulnerable to Plasma attacks. So using plasma attacks against Apex Ravager can help you a lot during the fight.

Another way of defeating Ravager with ease is to use The Ravager cannon weapon. Using this weapon against both variants can prove to be lethal. Ravager cannon can also help you neutralize the Ravager’s primary attacks which can help you a lot during the fight against these machine enemies.

You can also use cannon against the Ravager. But this might backfire as the cannon has limited ammo and it might hurt you if the fight goes on for a while.
