Miniboss: Pincer
« on: January 26, 2016, 05:14:54 PM »
Okay, that's the second time I met Pincer and the second time I got wiped across the floor.  Actually, the first time I did better because I had a *lot* more health, this time I only had the base Red Shift health as I was only on level 2.

How am I supposed to beat him/her/it without losing most/all of my health?

Pincer is all about keeping in motion while making sure you give yourself a wide amount of space to work with. Staying along the outsides while avoiding any bullets that appear in your face is key. This becomes more difficult on later difficulties when Pincer uses more attacks at a time, but I can assure you this is a boss you can learn to never get hit on consistently.

Okay, I took some damage, but worked it out on the third try.  Hopefully in future I can do it with no damage!  Cheers for the advice.

I've always been able to get past it without taking any damage by essentially circling around the outside of the square and just dodging the split shots as necessary.  Hope that helps.
