The Elden Ring has some cool bosses in the game and other than the main story bosses, optional bosses are higher in number and if you want to defeat them you can do it just by encountering them. Some of the side bosses are a part of an NPC quest and some are just random bosses in some location or at the end of a dungeon. You do get gear and weapons from the side bosses, just like you get from the main bosses. In this guide, we’ll tell you how to defeat one of the side bosses in Elden Ring named Black Blade Kindred.
Location of Black Blade Kindred
The Black Blade Kindred can be found in this very location. He’ll be at the entrance door of the Bestial Sanctum in the Dragonbarrow region.
How to Defeat Black Blade Kindred
He’ll be guarding at the entrance of the Bestial Sanctum once you reach there, what you want to do is that call torrent and sprint towards the entrance and dodge the attack by jumping and when you reach inside there’ll be a site of grace there, discover the site and rest at it. Now his position will be reset and he’ll be facing the other way and you’ll be behind him. There is pretty much only 1 phase to this boss as he is an optional boss, so there won’t be any cutscenes in between fights so pretty much only 1 phase.
While you coming from behind him you can get a couple of heavy hits on him and roll back from him, if you are facing him from the front then you can’t attack him first, so it’s a pretty good advantage for damaging him first.
So, the attacks that he does is pretty simple to dodge but you have to time it right and you can actually dodge it and can easily get a hit or two onto him. One of the few attacks that he does is a shockwave, you just have to roll aside from the wave and after the wave, he would do a three-hit combo with the sword. You can pretty much dodge by rolling back the first two hits and on the third hit, you can dodge into him and can tag him with a few hits and just roll back from him. He would do some rush attacks on you but they are random and pretty easy to dodge as well, when you see him rushing towards you, you just have to dodge into him and you can land a heavy attack on him.
When he switches his weapon to the Axe, it would be easier to dodge. The attack that he does with the axe weapon is that he would do a flying dive on you and as he comes down on you just dodge into him and get a hit on him. Sometimes he would land two shots on you just randomly just dodge it by rolling back you don’t have to aggress that attack. He will also rush you with axe into the ground jump and slam again into the ground so, you dodge as he rushing towards you and as he jumps you can dodge into him because the second attack would be delayed and you can easily tag him. One more attack that he would do with the axe is that he would jump up and swing the axe. He would swing two times and hit it on the ground while he’s swinging you just need to dodge into it and by the time he would slam it on the ground you would be behind him and you can land some heavy attacks.
He would switch his weapons from time to time and he would repeat his attacks you can dodge the rush attacks that are random and for the rush attacks that you see coming, you can dodge right into him and deal some damage. That would be all of his attacks and you can just let him attack you first and dodge his attacks and hit him. He’ll be dead a few minutes into the fight.
After you’ve defeated him, you’ll get 88,000 Runes, Gargoyle’s Black blade, and Gargoyles Black Halberd.

In this guide, we’ll tell you how to defeat Zanzo in Hi-Fi Rush.
Zanzo is the third boss of the game which players will encounter in the fourth stage of the game. Defeating Zanzo takes a bit of an alternative way rather than fighting him in a 1v1 battle. Zanzo has created many machines and tools with his AI Development skills and players will have to go through all the waves of enemies that Zanzo has created. By doing this, players will be exhausting the Budgets of Zanzo.
Players will go through different choruses of Zanzo where he will bring out his different machines that you have to defeat in order to defund Zanzo. In the first chorus, you will get to fight the normal enemies. Defeat them to move on to the next chorus where you will get to fight the first major machine named “PGR-0101”. This machine has a variety of attacks as well as a shield. The best way to defeat it is to call Macaron who will destroy the shield of the machine and you will get the opening where you will be able to land the combos with your attack. Do the perfect timing combos to recharge your special attack. Do the Special Attack along with calling Peppermint to quickly defeat it.
The Budget of Zanzo greatly decreases after surviving the second chorus in the simulator. Later in the chorus, you will get to fight the enemies with the shield that you can break by calling Peppermint as well as Macaron. Use Macaron to break the shield of some enemies and for the rest of the enemies call peppermint. Take out the enemies one by one to encounter the next technology of Zanzo. You will get to fight the Drones for which you will have to parry their attacks. Parrying their attacks will give you the opportunity to hit them again and you will be able to take them out in no time. Call Peppermint as well while fighting the drones.
In the third and last chorus, you will make your way to the lava area where you will have to dodge the falling lava balls. Dodge the green marks on the ground to dodge the lava balls and use the zipline to move to other areas. You will make your way to the Gift Basket where the last fight takes place. You will get to fight the same enemies as before where you will have to call Macaron to take their shields down and then attack them with your combo attacks and special attacks. However, the main thing that you want to focus on during the fight is falling lava balls.
Make sure to dodge the green areas on the ground to dodge the lava. Fight the enemies by calling Peppermint and Macaron to take them out. Once you have defeated the enemies, you will see the lens from earlier in the fight. You need to attack the lens which will start a sequence. Complete the sequence by pressing the buttons on the screen to start a cutscene. Zanzo will get defunded in the cutscene which leads Chai to defeat Zanzo and retrieve the USB which contains the Data about SPECTRA.
Hi-Fi Rush: How to Defeat Rekka
Hi-Fi Rush is full of action along with a taste of countless beats. Players will get to explore the city of Vandelay where they will get to uncover cool technologies as well as fight different enemies. As players progress through the game, they will get to fight different bosses that have only one purpose, to recall (Kill) the defected which is Chai, our main character. One of the main bosses that players will get to fight is Rekka.
In this guide, we’ll tell you how to defeat Rekka in Hi-Fi Rush.
Rekka’s both arms are robotic and she will be doing a lot of punching attacks as well as dashing attack combos with them. The Punching attacks are easier to dodge but if you get hit by one of the dashing combo attacks, you will be hit by the rest of the combo as well so, try to dodge it by looking at the ground. There will be a range meter and the direction of where Rekka will be dashing. Stay away from the range and the direction and let her complete her combo so, you don’t get in her way while she is doing the combo.
To deal damage to Rekka, hit her with your attack combos and try to sync them with the beat to deal extra damage and charge your special attack quickly. Once the special attack is charged, use it to deal a decent amount of damage to her. You can also call Peppermint during the fight to deal more damage to her. Once you have lowered her first bar, she will get stunned and you will get to deplete her first bar of HP. After that, she will remove the cover of the floor to absorb the electric current on her robotic arms.
Now, she will be able to land the punches with electric current. Punches can be dodged easily but she can trick you with the moves. She will also be doing the ground slam with the electric current that has a bit of range. If you are inside the ground slam range then you will get electrocuted which will take a lot of your HP. Try to maintain a distance from her and don’t go to remove the cover of the arena because it will give you damage as well. She will also do the slam attack on the electric wires which will generate shock waves in the arena and in order to dodge that, you will have to double jump and grab one of the magnets in the air.
She will create an energy shield around her which can be easily broken by calling peppermint. Other than dodging her moves, you can easily damage her by hitting her with the combo and calling Peppermint. Once you have depleted the second bar of her HP, you will get to complete a sequence of dodging the pipes that are thrown by Rekka. Dodge the Pipes by moving left and right and after the sequence, you can just use your special attack on her and call peppermint at the same time to deal great damage to her. She will be using pipes to do the slam attacks which can be dodged easily. She will also use her arms to grab you so, try to avoid it by doing a double jump until she stops trying to grab you. Other than that, just keep doing your combo attacks and calling peppermint to deal damage to her.
After depleting the third bar of her HP, the arena will turn red and she will begin to do the dashing combo with electric arms. You can just keep your distance until she has done the combo. After that, use your special attack if charged and call peppermint to deal damage. She will also be using the rest of her attacks so, just dodge them and keep calling peppermint to deplete her HP gradually. Once you get close to her, do the combo and land the perfect sync to stun her and do the special attack to defeat her.
