The Surge LU-74 Firebug Boss
LU-74 Firebug Boss is the second boss you will encounter in The Surge, you will encounter this boss in the Waste Decontamination inside the Central Production B. Unlike the P.A.X, LU-74 Firebug is a difficult boss and significantly challenging than the first.
But, it can be defeated with relative ease if one known the exact moves to defeat it and that is where this guide comes in which will help you with the boss fight.
As you enter the area LU-74 Firebug will drop from the ceiling, and your goal is to destroy all six of its legs which will render it less dangerous.
There are two phases of LU-74 Firebug Boss fight, in the first phase this boss has two attacks. The first attack whacks the player with one of its many legs if the player gets too close.
The second attack for this boss is that it furiously spins all of its legs at once and charges towards the player and it is very easy to fall prey to this attack.
To avoid damage from this attack all you have to do is keep dodging backward.
As soon as these attacks are done, jump straight back in the fight and deal 1-2 hits on its legs.
After 4 hits on each leg, the leg will fall off which will result in Firebug to drop down for a while, as soon as it happens, attack its main body before it gets back up in the fight.
As you knock off its three legs, LU-74 Firebug will enter its second phase in which this boss gets considerably more aggressive.
However, there is a way to avoid damage from this aggression. As soon as the boss backs off to either corner of the arena and prepares for the charge, just jump to the either side as it begins its attack and you will successfully dodge the attack.
Firebug also has a flamethrower attack but it does not have a range and the boss itself does not move towards the player instead, it remains stationary.
The plan is to destroy the remaining legs as it will take the spinning legs attack out of the equation. Just dodge its attacks and given the chance attack its legs.
Once all the remaining legs are gone, position yourself underneath the LU-74 Firebug for a quick attack and then it will do slam attack on the ground, just dodge it and back to it quickly and land attacks while it is recovering. Repeat this process and you will be able to defeat LU-74 Firebug.
