He Scrapped Watchman He is one of the first bosses you will find in Lies of P. This monstrous giant blocks the path between you and Krat Town Hall. Just one look at the Scrapped Watchman’s face is enough to inspire terror in any player who has to face him. Here is a guide that teaches you how to beat the Scrapped Watchman in Lies of P.
How to beat Scrapped Watchman in Lies of P
The best strategy to defeat the Scrapped Watchman is to keep your distance until he does a slow move leaving you open to charged attacks. This boss is purely a melee combatant that gives you plenty of security from a distance. He has many attacks that are fierce but leave small openings that you can exploit.
When you get the chance, hit the Scrapped Watchman with a charged attack to the head after doing Perfect Blocks. You will have the opportunity to stagger him and make him fall to the ground, leaving him open to a fatal attack. Once the button prompt appears, press R1/RB/Left Click to deal a significant amount of damage. You’ll notice that Scrapped Watchman is vulnerable to staggering when his health bar glows silver around the edges.
Watch out for when Scrapped Watchman raises his arms. This means that he will charge forward with a single hit, leaving you open to counterattacks. He will also raise his arm to charge a blow that you can easily dodge to the side.
Like the other Lies of P bosses, Scrapped Watchman has two phases. In his first phase, he uses fast-paced but telegraphed changes. Once his health reaches less than 50%, he will start generating electricity around his body and will get some area of effect attacks that have a good radius.
When Scrapped Watchman starts generating electricity, watch out when he turns red and jumps. It will sink to the surface of the ground and electricity will crackle over a large area of the boss arena. Back away quickly to avoid taking unblockable damage.
In the second phase, the best chance to hit the Scrapped Watchman is when he makes his three attacks. He will raise his arms twice and you can block him, followed by an unblockable red attack. The Scrapped Watchman will be vulnerable after this, so you can perfectly block the last attack or dodge it.
As long as you are careful and constantly hit the Scrapped Watchman when he leaves an opening, he will fall easily.
