Boss Fight: Galan

To begin the fight with Galan, you’ll need to enter the circular structure first. If you try to shoot him consistently from above, he’ll just heal his way back to full health. However, you can begin the fight with an assassination attack by pouncing on him from above. This should allow you to take a good chunk of his health from the beginning of the fight. When Galan hits the floor with his weapon, it will destroy the surface and you’ll fall deeper into the fortification. When you do, you should find some fire pots in the surrounding area. Shoot them to cause an explosion and set Galan on fire, but make sure you’re not too close to the fire pot when you do.

Aside from the rare red rune aura attacks, Galan’s other attacks can be parried to stop him in his tracks and make him vulnerable. You can then retaliate with a series of light and heavy attacks. You’ll find weak points on Galan’s left leg, left arm, and right leg. Be sure to shoot these to weaken him and trigger a stun attack, which will take a large chunk of health from him. When dodging, you’ll find it useful to have the Brush with Death skill, which slows time whenever you dodge allowing you to shoot weak points with ease or prepare a series of melee strikes. You will also find the Grit skill to be useful, if you’re hit for a large amount and need to recover health quickly.

(1 of 5) You can begin the fight with Galan with an assassination attack.

Galan doesn’t have many special attacks, so the fight will be relatively easy if you follow the above steps. Once he’s dead, a cutscene will initiate with Faravid. It doesn’t matter what you say here, the outcome will be the same.
