Just like with the PUPA and Chrysalis battles, listen to what Huey has to say about its weaknesses.

Another battle and it’s against Cocoon. Let’s get started. We need to destroy the radiators first. Go under Cocoon and you’ll see the two radiators in middle of it. Shoot them with the M60 until you destroy them, which

shouldn’t take long.

The radiators have steam coming out of them (left picture). Theres a machine gun shooting at everything that moves underneath Cocoon. Be careful.

Now stay down here until you see that Cocoon readies the gatling gun, which shoots under Cocoon. Once the gatling gun lowers get out of there and shoot your RPG2 to the AI Pod. Shoot it over and over as many times as you can. When it says “Preparing for area attack” , quickly run under Cocoon and wait for the missiles to stop shooting. Wait down here until the gatling gun lowers once again, get out and rinse and repeat. If you run out of missiles, use your M60 to take a decent amount of dmg. against it.

When it says “Preparing for sweep attack” , get away from Cocoon or get under it to avoid the. Once you’ve taken care of the radiators, make sure not to stay under Cocoon for too long because it can lower itself and almost kill you. Once it has 2 bars left it’ll find a thermostat issue and ram itself into the wall. You’ll be shown a ladder on the upper side of Cocoon.

Go up this ladder and on top you’ll be in the front side of Cocoon. Go to the back of it (be quick otherwise the gatling guns will deal some massive damage). Back here go up the little ledge towards the center of Cocoon and up here move to the front to find another ladder.

Once you get to the top, you’ll see 2 gatling guns. Quickly approach the AI Pod and use the M60 to shoot the hell out of the gatlings. Watch out for the missiles though. Whenever you’re targeted, quickly move to another side of this upper part to completely avoid the missiles. Now just shoot the AI Pod until you need to open the hatch. Shoot it nonstop until you open it. Inside, remove the boards you wish for and the mission will end.
