Strategy

  • Billy, the Anointed is a fearsome foe. Not only he is tough, but is also fast, ignores walls and has the following attacks:
    • Punch: Punches the target.
    • Pounce: Jumps and produced a shock shockwave with a medium radius upon landing.
      • The shockwave can be dodged with a properly timed jump.
    • Burning Skulls: Spews burning projectiles that slowly home on their target and produce an incendiary field on impact.
      • The skulls can be destroyed or evaded.
    • Clap shockwave: Claps to produce shockwaves with a wide radius and goes through walls.
    • Shock bolt: Tosses a grenade-like energy bolt of shock element. Usually at close range.
      • The shockwave can be dodged by jumping.
      • If the character is above Billy, the shockwave won't hit them but he will attempt to close the distance by Phasewalking up to them.
  • Billy has no shield and is weak to incendiary damage.
  • Billy's head is his Critical hit spot.
  • Local Fanatics may provide Second Wind opportunities.

When defeated, Billy will turn into a statue and must be destroyed with a melee attack.
