The Red Widow comes after the Krell Guardian Boss in the story of the game. However, she does not fight alone as two of her guards are sent first to deal with you.

Below we have detailed how to defeat Red Widow and her two guards.

How to Defeat Red Widow

If you had to compare the Redi Widow with the Krell Guardian then she is a trickier boss to beat. In addition to the two guards that you have to beat before you can actually face her, the attacks she uses in this battle are quite powerful and enough to keep you on your toes at all times.

When you first enter the area, her two guards immediately show up to fight you, while the Red Widow will stand by until you beat both the guards. The guards are powerful enemies as well, with a series of attacks with their blade staff. The good thing about this battle phase is that the guards rarely attack at the same time, leaving you to focus on one of them. However, they will switch around to fight you, where one will step in to fight you.

Both the guards have the same type of attacks, where one of their main attacks is a staff swinging move that ends with a leap and smash in front. This attack has a long animation while it always requires you to keep moving back and not getting caught with a hit. You can also defend yourself if you have a shield, allowing you to parry and counter-attack.

Once you have taken out both the guards, the Red Widow will finally approach you. The boss battle area is quite big, giving you ample amounts of space to step back and heal for a moment. However, the Red Widow is always looking to close the gap between the two of you. And when she does get close, she uses her staff to melee attack you.

Her staff can also be used for electric attacks, where one of them allows her to produce an orb of electricity around her, dealing damage in a radius around her. You can easily dodge this attack as the electricity takes a second to charge, alerting you of the incoming attack. The second electric attack is where she shoots a bolt of electricity straight-ahead pointing towards you. This means that you have to dodge sideways pretty quickly as it is a fast attack, but is also indicated by the electric charge animation

Your strategy in the fight is to go in with a hammer and shield. This is because you can defend with most of her attacks, while always looking to counter-attack with a charged attack. A charged attack with a hammer takes a good chunk of HP out from the Red Widow, while the rest of the battle is rinse and repeat of this technique.
