Artemis charges head-on. If this attack approaches a dead end, Artemis will turn and continue charging for a period of time. Get out of its reach with Farthest Move.

Strategy

Be sure to fill up your Devil Trigger gauge with either Griffon or Shadow to summon Nightmare. In Griffon’s case, summon Nightmare to distract it while dealing damage and have Griffon’s ranged attacks support Nightmare.

Dodge the Laser Beams

Since Artemis’ attacks are mostly ranged, Farthest Move is vital in dodging. In some instances, however, you can employ other evasive moves to dodge.
