1st HP Bar
The Guardian Ape’s attacks are pretty straightforward in the first stage. He will be open to attacks after sitting down after a couple of wild swings. However, be careful to not get behind it for long period, as it will unleash a poisonous gas attack from its rear.
You can get close to him and hack away at its HP. This is especially effective after he executes his tantrum attack and begins to sit down. You can also use the Flame Vent prosthetic tool after throwing a bottle of oil at the ape to stun him for a few seconds and increase posture damage.
Be on the lookout for when the Guardian Ape tries to grab you. If he succeeds, you will take a lot of damage.
You will be greeted by the Guardian Ape’s second form after you deal the first deathblow.
2nd HP Bar
The Headless Ape’s attacks differ from the Guardian Ape’s. Take note of its varied attack patterns before heading forward.
It has a sliding attack which can be dodged. After dodging it, you have a small window to hack away at its HP.
The Headless Ape also has a new area of effect attack which it roars and spits out some blood. The longer you’re in its area, the higher your Fear meter rises. Head back to a safe spot once it rears its torso and begins its roar.
