This page details how to defeat the boss Jega ’Rdomnai, during the House of Reckoning main mission.
Boss Fight: Jega ’Rdomnai
The boss fight with Jega ’Rdomnai will begin after you’ve interacted with the device belonging to Echo 216, which displays a recording of his family. This is an intense fight which will require you to use the Threat Sensor to reveal Jega’s location while he’s in stealth, and to make use of the space available to escape his melee attacks. Jega wields two powerful melee weapons including a modified Energy Sword. If you allow Jega to hit you multiple times in a row, you’ll be dead in seconds. It’s important that if you’re hit, you create some distance between yourself and Jega either by sprinting or by using Grappleshot.
The main part of the fight will consist of you trying to deplete Jega’s energy shield. As with the fight with Chak ’Lok, once you’ve done this you’ll find it incredibly easy to eat through Jega’s health. The shield however is quite tough, so you’ll need to rely on decent power weapons to consistently inflict damage. If you don’t attack Jega for a long enough period, his shield will regenerate and you’ll have to start from scratch.
There will be natural breaks in the combat as you try to escape melee range from Jega, or as you reload, so the best way to maintain damage on Jega and to potentially deplete his shield in one sustained attack, is by using one of the many blast coils which can be found in the area. The use of a blue blast coil has the added benefit of stunning Jega in place for a brief period, which gives you plenty of time to kill him without his shield. You can either pick one of these up and then throw it at Jega as he approaches, or you can wait for him to roam near to one, then shoot it to cause an explosion. As soon as Jega takes damage from the blast, inflict as much damage as possible with a power weapon such as the Ravager, or if you have a less powerful weapon be sure to aim for the head to inflict maximum damage. Once the shield is fully depleted, taking out Jega’s health bar should be a relatively easy task. Just don’t get too carried away by sustaining an attack if you’re already one hit away from death.
