Current Mission - Defeat the Gravedigger
Run forward and kill one of the corpses, let the other corpse take a coffin. Kill the coffin, but let the corpse work its way around the coffins. If you kill the first two enemies outright then loads will enter and you’ll have to tackle several coffins at once! Head through the gate that opens and use the health font and magic refills and then proceed…
Boss - Gravedigger
The Gravedigger isn’t too hard, but he has quite a varied arsenal of attacks. Fortunately they are all easily dodged when you know what’s coming…
He has a Stabbing overhead, which sends a tremor in a straight line from the point of impact, move to the side to avoid. A flat overhead slam will create a shock wave you will need to avoid or jump.
If he grossly opens his mask to reveal his unflattering mouth tendrils then they are about to shoot forward, move to the side to avoid them. Wouldn’t want a French kiss from this chap…
If he lowers the shovel to his side then he’s likely going for an unblockable swing, roll back to avoid it. Later in the fight the digger will start to, surprise surprise, dig up some corpses. Use grabs to deal with them no hassle.
Simply lay into the Gravedigger as you would any normal enemy, once you understand his moves he’ll be on his knees in no time. When the Gravedigger is flashing white for the grab finale, leave him be and run right. Use the Stake crank before grabbing the boss to open the menacing looking furnace.
Once open grab the boss and follow the QTE’s for the coup-de-gras.
The boss has a final surge though; grabbing Gabriel and pulling him into the furnace, time to climb! Shimmy right and follow the linear path. The camera makes it fairly obvious where you are going here, so just roll with it. You’ll soon come to a section where you’re climbing upward on the outside of the furnace, recognizable by it being curved and looking metallic.
Go left slightly and keep on pulling Gabriel up. A grab ledge is just to the right side of the screen; just keep following the linear path and you’ll soon find yourself at the end.
Objective: Finish the level and kill at least 15 summoned Creeping Corpses during the fight against the Gravedigger
A simple but long trial this. As you will know from the fight, every so often the digger will pull three corpses from the ground; simply use grabs to see them off when they appear. Just continue to avoid attacks and wait till all 15 are gone before killing the digger off.
