Pound of Flesh Trophy

  • Pound of Flesh


    Kill Xerx

    Story-related and cannot be missed.

    Xerx is the Frankenstein-looking boss and you'll have to fight him twice. The first time you fight him, you'll take out 6 Sun Cannons, for which you'll be rewarded with Blood Hammer Gun Mode, but that's all. This trophy is for when you finally get to kill him a few levels later, at the very end of Act 8: Kagan's Tower. He's the last boss before the last, last boss; the final boss. As always, this fight is a puzzle rather than a true fight. There are 4 glowing weaknesses in his Super Pink Suit that you'll need to destroy and Harpoon to kill him. This can be quite annoying as you'll likely be knocked off the roof several times but you don't die or even lose health to that so it's not a big deal. If you know where to stand, it makes the fight a lot simpler and a lot easier. Once he's dead, the trophy will pop. 

    Note: Vampire Lair #18 is in this level and you'll have to get it before you kill him. See Nowhere you can hide trophy_gold.png for more or the video below.

    For more on the boss and tips for fighting him, see below [SPOILER WARNING]:

    Using your Carpathian Dragons' awesome rocket launcher-mode Blood Hammer, shoot rockets at the pink weak spots (this is by default, really; the game does most of the aiming for you as they don't give you separate targets for each spot but direction does matter so try to aim as best as you can) until they turn a greyish-green color. Once one changes color, grab it with your Harpoon and pull it down. Rinse and repeat until all 4 are down, which will end the fight. Throughout the fight, normal mobs will spawn one at a time so you'll always have a source of Health and ammunition. Just try to stand behind the pillars as his attacks will kill the normal mobs too. There's a specific section of the room where you should stand to make this fight a million times easier, which is the section with the broken staircase/that has a hole in it. Stand under the stairs, behind the pillars and just keep switching pillars to protect yourself. Watch the video below to see exactly where.
