Gotham Knights

How to Defeat a Godmother

Jarrod Garripoli

This page will detail how to defeat a Godmother enemy in Gotham Knights.

The Godmother is another miniboss enemy

The Godmother is a type of enemy that belongs to The Mob Faction, and will be first encountered during Case 1.4 - Blackgate Blues. This is an enemy that will introduce a new Momentum Ability for your hero, a move that will inflict piercing damage. Unfortunately, things won’t be so easy on you, as there is more to these minibosses than just pummeling them until you can use the Momentum Ability.

How to Defeat a Godmother

When you first encounter a Godmother, it will be one-on-one, and the game will give you a tutorial on piercing attacks. Use this chance to become accustomed to the Godmother’s attacks, as all of them are armored attacks. That means you won’t be able to interrupt and stun them with normal attacks. You’ll know these are armored attacks, as they will be red in color, which means you should be dodging these.

The Godmother has a combo attack, where she’ll start by doing a one-two combo with his fists, then swing her weapon at you after that. She will usually follow this up with a spinning attack with her weapon. If you Perfect Evade this, you can follow up the spinning attack with a Perfect Attack. The last attack that the Godmother can do is where she’ll run at you, then do a short leap, before smashing into the ground and delivering a small shockwave around her.

All of the attacks should be easily dodgeable, so you should have no trouble evading them at all. Whenever you see an opening, strike the Godmother and continue doing that until you get a full Momentum gauge. Once this has been done, use your piercing Momentum Ability to open up the Godmother for follow-up attacks. Keep doing this and the Godmother will eventually go down for good.
