Butcho the Clown will be among the most challenging zombies to slay in Dead Island 2. If this enemy is giving you headaches and you don't know how to get rid of it, consult our guide.
One of the hardest zombies to defeat in the latest zombie shooter from Deep Silver , Dead Island 2 , is the zombie you will encounter during the story mission "Boarwalking Dead," called Butcho the Clown.
Dr. Reed will give you instructions on where to find the Blood Drive, a tiny computer capable of analyzing your blood, during this assignment. Despite the fact that this assignment takes place within an amusement park, it won't be a walk in the park because you'll need to defeat one of the game's toughest foes in order to get this tiny laptop.
If this guy is giving you a headache, here are some tips on how to easily defeat this formidable foe.
How to easily defeat Butcho the Clown
First of all, do not make the same mistake as we did and come to this fight unprepared, because once you jump into a small arena where Butcho is hiding, there is no coming back. Make sure that at least two of your favourite weapons are fully repaired and battle-ready.
Also, make certain that your rage is fully filled, because it will give you an edge in this fight for sure.
He will attempt to attack you with a series of three strikes as soon as you get close to the laptop and the cutscene ends. These attacks can be easily evaded if you dodge them right. Once he has finished his sequence of attacks, rapidly deliver two blows in an attempt to knock him in the head. This tactic will probably cause him to sustain critical damage.
Another crucial point: avoid using firearms in this fight because the Butcho will easily deflect all the bullets, and you will only waste valuable resources. This boss can only be damaged by being struck by melee weapons.
Try to move in circles when attacking him; this way you will avoid his very sharp handblades. Also, if he manages to jump on you, do not worry; as long as you successfully complete QTE, he will do you no harm.
When you damage him enough, he will go for the corpses to feed on them and heal himself. Do not let him do this! Chase him and strike him from behind to stop his healing process. Ignore the other zombies that will emerge as soon as he heads for the corpses. Remember, under no circumstances should you allow him to begin eating. If he does, his entire health bar will refill, and you will have to restart the process—this time it will be considerably harder with all the zombies around.
To successfully defeat Butcho the Clown, just chase him all over the arena and take advantage of his dropped guard when he tries to heal himself. Using this strategy, he will be down in no time. Once you kill him, do not drop your guard; kill the remaining zombies, pick up the laptop, and make your way through the door.
