Scarlet Nexus - Hanabi Ichijo IconHanabi Pyrokinesis Gunkin Perry is weak to fire, particularly when it is drenched in oil. Use SAS pyrokinesis to stack even more damage on the boss and inflicting burn.

How to Beat Gunkin Perry

A good strategy against the boss is to bait out its jumping slam attack near the heavy construction materials above the boss area. When it misses, pull down the hanging construction materials above and drop it on the boss to deal massive damage. This will also temporarily stagger Gunkin Perry, giving you time to unload on it with more attacks.

Another strategy is to attack Gunkin Perry’s oil cannon which causes it to be drenched in oil. From there, activate SAS pyrokinesis (Hanabi) and inflict burn to stack even more damage.

Be prepared to time perfect dodges if you intend to stay in front of the boss while attack as it will constantly throw out its regular and spinning arm swipes. Do not hesitate to run away to safer position and use Light Jellies when your HP gets too low.
