Lectra City - KillarenaKill Killavolt - Side MissionLegendary Shotgun - Shocking 9-Volt

Killavolt will be the most difficult opponent you'll face at this stage of the game, so pay close attention to these tips to allow your battle to be alot easier. He'll hold his shield up throughout the battle so you'll need to wait for him to do certain attacks / gestures before you're able to put a good amount of damage into him.

Note: Do not use a Shock weapon against Killavolt as he is immune to this element.

In order to make Killavolts health / shield deplete alot faster you're going to want to focus firing at his weak spots which are his groin and his battery pack. Obviously Killavolt has a shield so you'll need to wait for him to cheer to the crowd in order to shoot his groin, after you've dealt enough damage in that spot he'll fall to the ground in which it will give you a good oppotunity to deal plenty of damage.

Whilst you're waiting for him to cheer to the crowd he'll go in for a charge attack which you'll need to dodge quickly, after you've gotten out of the way you'll want to deal loads of damage to his upper back which is his second weakspot.

Note: It's a good idea to grab some ammo from the crates that are scattered around the arena before the second phase begins.

you cannot deal any damage to Killavolt when he has his bubble up,stay out of the electric patches,shoot his upper back to deal critical hitsdodge the electric attack by jumping over the white ring as it approaches you, Shoot Killavolts groin when he starts cheering to the crowd.

During the battle Killavolt will fire Shock bullets at you and then perform a ground slam and by doing so, he'll trigger a line of electricity towards the direction he is facing.

Now you know about Killavolt it's time to pay close attention to the arena itself, as during the fight different types of electric attacks will occur. Firstly, the floor will light up yellow and a white ring will appear, make sure you jump over it as it approaches you.

During the second phase the whole floor will light yellow again, except this time you're going to need to look for small lit up patches that electricity will switch off on first.

Killavolt's Legendary Shocking 9-Volt SMG

Killavolts exclusive legendary submachine gun.

Once you've completed the Mission you may want to farm for the Shocking 9-Volt Submachine Gun which is Killavolts exclusive Legendary weapon. In order to do so simply quit the game and log back in and head back into the Killarena to retry the fight.
