Evil West has accumulated four main boss fights sprinkled all across the 16 main missions through which the player has to progress to complete the game. The boss fights can get exceptionally challenging at times. Therefore, our Evil West All Bosses guide will uncover all of them in detail and work out how to defeat them! 

Note: based on the chosen difficulty of the player, the boss fights can get more or less challenging. 

The Parasiter 

Kicking things off with the first boss in the game, it is introduced in chapter 7, which really spikes up the difficulty level all that much. The parasiter is one of the few challenging bosses that require strategy and stealth from the player’s end. 

The main defining feature of the boss itself will be the big leech-like head in the middle, with two tentacles that wll protrude from its left and right sides, which will be one of the most crucial things to focus on during the actual boss fight. 

First Phase

Now, when it comes to the first phase, the player will need to start by targeting the left tentacle which will have a “weak point” with a golden circle, which you will need to shoot at. Once you do, roll forward, go toward the collapsed left tentacle and start making melee attacks on it. You will be able to get in 2-3 melee attacks before the tentacle gets up. 

From there, it will get the same golden circle once again, which you can shoot at, and you can evade the attacks from the right tentacle and launch a few more melee attacks on the left tentacle again. 

After that, the right tentacle will stab down towards you, where it stays there for a second, which allows players to launch more melee attacks at it, during which the golden circle appears again t the left tentacle. Shoot the weak point of the right tentacle as well, and carry out melee attacks on the left, after which it will get up and perform a total of 3 stabbing attacks aimed at you, after which you can make a melee attack on the left tentacle and render it useless. 

Run to the other side, where the right tentacle is, and the parasiter will continue to launch poison at you, which will be colored yellow. Keep running across the edge of the field to avoid it, and the right tentacle will perform the 3 stabbing attacks now. Carry out melee attacks when it is stabbed into the ground to lower its HP.

When both the tentacles are down, two vulnerable points will appear at the actual leech which you will need to shoot at. 

Second Phase

At the start of the next phase, small red circles will appear on the ground, whereby the parasiter will continue throwing down projects you need to avoid. Keep slowly running in a left and right pattern to avoid taking any damage.

After that, the two tentacles will face you, and the same “weak-spots” circles will appear on them, which you can shoot at. The right tentacle falls, allowing you to make melee attacks. At that point, a cocoon also forms in the middle of the field, which you can choose to burn or avoid. Shoot at the weak point of the left tentacle while you’re at it. 

At this point, the parasiter will spawn enemies that will continue following you, but it’s best to avoid attacking them and stay safe from them. The tentacles carry out the same stabbing motions, then get stuck in the ground to allow for more melee hits. The parasiter spews out poison while launching enemies to follow you. 

The best way to avoid the poison is by sprinting and staying on the battlefield’s left edge. After the tentacles collapse, the same weak points appear on the leech, and the second phase ends. 

Third Phase

The third phase welcomes you with the same showering down of rocks with the red circles, so keep avoiding them and keep moving slowly across. The parasiter takes things one step up and starts launching poison projectiles at you, while it also simultaneously forms cacoons while the tentacles attack at you. 

The best way to counteract 5 things happening at the same time is by moving and staying calm. Handling one tentacle at a time, taking it out, then focusing on the other is the way to go. More enemies spawn and follow you; more poison is being spewed out, more attacks from the tentacles, and more vulnerability spots you can shoot. Keep repeating the same steps until the boss fight ends

The Bruch

Following through with the next boss, we have The Bruch, which will be introduced to us when we end up reaching chapter 10 of the main questline. As for the overall difficulty, the boresight will be on the easier end compared to the parasiter. 

First Phase

When the boss fight first starts, bruch will end up attacking you a total of 4 times with it’s tail. And the best way to counteract the attacks will be by simply spamming Q to consistently block, or L1 if you’re on the controller. One thing to note is that these four attacks are unavoidable. 

After that, you will have a short period of time whereby you will be allowed to carry out attacks on him, which you can do so using the lightning bolt weapon because it will be able to dish out more damage. After that occurs, bruch will end up spawning a few minions, from which you will need to evade attacks, and the main reason for that is that if the minions attack you, then the boss receives heals. 

Make sure to kill them off as quickly as possible, for which you can use the flamethrower for extra efficiency. After that attack, bruch will end up attacking you a total of 7 times with its tail, so continue to spam q to block its attacks and stay on the more vigilant end. After that, his minions will spawn again, but he will also shoot fireballs you can simply dodge roll out of. 

Second Phase

Now, when it comes to the second phase, bruch will end up heading out of the battlefield and spawn smaller vampire opponents instead. You need to ensure that you take them all out while ensuring that you evade and dodge the fireballs that will spit out at the player. 

At that point, if you look up, his weak points will be revealed, which you will need to shoot at using your rifle. Bruch will end up repeating the attacks with his tails and spawning the enemies until about 1/3rd of its life is left. 

Third Phase 

When it has about 1/3rd left, it will then spawn long walls of enemies, which will continue to rotate in a line, and there will be a small gap through which the player will be able to go through. If you end up being attacked by the minions, the boss receives healing again. The wall repeats one more time, but this time the wall doesn’t rotate, rather, it follows and launches toward you. 

He will once again try to shoot out fire projectiles at you, but it will also reveal its weak points which you can shoot at. After that, it becomes vulnerable, allowing you to go face to face and murder that sucker. 

William Rentier

As for the next boss fight, payers will encounter William Rentier when they manage to reach level 14 in the game. When it comes to the overall difficulty, the boss is equally tough, but it’s nothing players can’t defeat with a bit of strategy up their sleeve. 

First Phase

When the fight first starts with him, he will first instantly zoom to the right, after which he will shoot at you a total of 2 times which red lines will indicate. Players will also have the opportunity to shoot back at him, but the best way to avoid taking damage from his shots is by simply evading to the left

After this, he will stand at the edge of the arena, and it will reveal his first weak point, which you need to shoot at to interrupt him. After this, he launches a bomb, which causes there to be a massive white light that blinds the player for a little bit. When you can see again, William will instantly rush at you. 

Dodge his incoming attacks, and you can get close to him to deal damage. The first phase will continue until 1/3rd of his HP is lost, and a cutscene will appear after that. This entire spiel will repeat until the phase ends. 

Second Phase

During the start of the second phase, William will end up shooting projectiles at you, and he will also go into a form whereby he will have tentacles. The projectiles will come in packs of 2, then 3, and finally, 4, which you can either evade or dodge from. The projectiles run through the ground; therefore, sprinting away also works. 

The projectiles will be launched at you again, during which another weak point of his will be revealed, which you will need to shoot at again. After you do so, he comes charging at you, and you can simply dodge and melee attack to bring down a bit of his HP. 

While you attempt to do so, he rises into the air for a little bit and stomps down, and there is a red circle on the ground where the stomping will occur, so make sure to dodge it. He will then launch out the blinding bomb again, and you can then use your gun to shoot at him since he will be still for a solid second. Everything we mentioned in phase 2 will repeat repeatedly until another 1/3rd of HP has been brought down. 

Third Phase

When the third phase starts, players can notice him being in the sky, whereby a red shield will also protect him. He will continue to launch projectiles until his weak point appears, and when you do so, you will interrupt his attacks, and he will become vulnerable for a small amount of time. 

He will then launch out the blinding bomb again and then rush at you, but this time he will mark a red circle for the path that he will follow to approach you. This circle will appear 3-4 times

Another blinding bomb occurs whereby you are in a ring with yellow barriers, and there will be clones of Willaim all around the player. Weak points will be indicated on the clones, which you must shoot at to take the corresponding clones out. You need to continue doing that until he becomes vulnerable, during which you can take your chances and render him useless. 

The process might repeat if you don’t kill him in time. 

Felicity’s True Form

Last but not least, if you’re reading this, congrats, you’ve probably made it to mission 16, which, if you haven’t, uh. The boss fight will start once Jesse can find Felicity, and Jesse will end up being furious about the fate of his father, and the interaction seems pretty standard with Felicity, but once the fight starts, her true form appears. 

First Phase

The first phase starts just after the cutscene ends, and Felicity ends up charging at the player at an incredible speed, which you will need to dodge. After that, it launches up at you and plunges at you and then will end up doing a slam into the ground. 

One thing that players need to keep in mind is that you will need to dodge over and over again. She also ends up sending out shockwaves that are targeted at you, which will be in cycles of 2-3, and she also ends u having a weak point revealed, which you can shoot at with ease. 

After that, she charges up at you while moving a bit to the left and then will repeat the plunging attack again. She slams the ground once again and then sends out more shockwaves. The first phase is just a repetition of a lot of slamming, dodging, and shooting at her. 

Second Phase

As for the second phase, it will appear after a cutscene. She launches at you once again, then goes up in the air and slams down on you. At one point, she ends up going on a wall which will then further reveal her 3 weak points, and you can continue to shoot at them, which will cause her to leap onto the next wall, revealing her weak points again. 

She then slams down onto the ground, ignorant of you, and does one slam, then rotates her body and does another slam down. She will then repeat a move where she charges at you a total of 4 times, and the best way out of this is to keep dodging, keep running, and keep evading

She will become vulnerable for a little bit which you can use to your advantage in order to launch out some melee attacks against her. 

Third Phase

When her third phase starts, she picks up her right arm to launch a shockwave, then her right arm to repeat it again, then she picks up both of her arms and launches one out at you. She will then jump up once again and slam into the ground behind you, during which she will become invulnerable for a bit, and you can easily dish out a few melee attacks at her. 

She’ll continue to slam at you, charge at you, and at one point, she will also start to throw out rubble as projectiles at you, and you can protect yourself against her attacks if you stand towards the rubble. 

After that, her weak points show up again, and you can finish her off with a few moves up your sleeve.
