Key Takeaways

There are a total of 7 different bosses in Midnight Suns, with each boss having unique characteristics and abilities.

  1. Allen Venom: Use knockback to eliminate Hydra agents and strategically spam Hunter’s Slash and Spiderman’s knockback.
  2. Sabretooth: Sabretooth is aggressive and doesn’t wait for your turn. Deal with him using Wolverine and Hunter.

Useful Tips

Here are some handy tips that will help you in staying one step ahead of your enemies and keep your team at the maximum potential!

Spam Quick Attacks

Certain abilities with the label quick can be found in the decks of damage-oriented characters. Compared to most of the hero’s other skills, these assaults, which vary from mild punches to repulsor blasts, cause little damage. However, they will immediately kill any grunts without health bars on the battlefield.

Build A Balanced Deck

Build heroism, unlock your finest techniques, and engage your enemy by using strikes that are simple to execute but do little damage from your deck. You will never find yourself with a complete hand you can’t play because you can’t muster up enough heroism to unleash it if you make sure every character has weak, mid-level, and high-level strikes available.

Don’t Waste Opportunities

If you play a lot of environmental damage attacks, your heroism level will be perpetually low, forcing you to use low-damage attacks. Save your heroism instead of using it on environmental weapons unless your opponent is near death or there is a chance to attack multiple opponents simultaneously.

Final Words

All in all, these are all the seven bosses that you will come across in Midnight Suns. Ensure you implement the tips and tricks and the tactics mentioned for each fight. With that, you will surely be able to win the battles within no time.
