So this guy… let me say i really enjoyed all the bosses in this game so far (almost level 30) except this one and ill try to point out what the problem is. (Normal difficulty)
It is ONLY his whole room aoe attack that takes you from full health/shields to half health. Everything else can be (mostly) avoided with good play.
The other issue is obviously that this guy is MUCH harder in solo play due to his single target nature and his shield. At the end of the day, this is much less of an issue though compared to his unavoidable attack.
Ive seen people say that there are plates that come back up to normal earlier - that is somewhat not correct. In my version of the game - and im really not sure if its just bugged - for a large amount of time the >entire< room is under electricity and i am going to take the aforementioned large amount of damage until those “early” plates recover. Nothing i can do about it. Even tried standing on the ammo crates, even with constant jumping.
Ive seen people say you can “save adds” for this attack. I have tried this and everytime the whole room goes electric the adds died without me attacking them. Im not entirely sure if this particular attack actually damages adds / they despawn or if i just got insanely unlucky for some other reason but thats where we are.
Add spawns in general are way too RNG. So is attack selection.
In the 1 video i watched where the guy soloed Killavolt, he had a lot more adds spawn than i did. E.g. he had adds spawn right as the fight started which for me they never did. In fact for most of the fight in my game he very rarely spawns adds. On my last attempt i got a total of 4 ads (2 spawns) during the entire time until half of his red health was off.
I also noticed that in the 1 successfull solo ive seen Killavolt just decided to only use his floor electric once and no more while for me he uses it all the time. Usually twice for half his red health, ive seen 3 times as well.
Based on the other bosses ive seen in this game i cant help but feel that this guy has to be bugged in some way. I.e. his entire floor electric isnt supposed to be active for as long as it is/ the early plates are supposed to recover from being electrified way earlier.
As he is right now i dont see myself every trying to solo this guy again.
