How to beat Brhatu in Gungrave GORE

Gungrave’s return, Gungrave GORE, brings with him the over-the-top fights and boss battles the series is known for. While the tips and tricks for Gungrave GORE will give you a big advantage when you first get into the game, the best preparation you can do for boss fights is specifically to learn their strengths and weaknesses. This guide takes on Brhatu, a hulking abomination of muscle and sinew that attacks you with sheer brute force.

How to beat Brhatu in Gungrave GORE

First, you need to focus on kiting around the Brhatu arena, staying as far away from it as possible. Many of Brhatu’s attacks hit in a wide area in front of or around him, so keeping your distance will save you from the massive damage they deal.

First phase

  • Right Punch, Left Punch, Air Slam: Brhatu will run towards you and start a three attack combo of a right punch into the ground, followed by a left punch, and finally raising both fists in the air before slamming the ground. The three attacks hit in a large circle in front of Bhatu.
  • Quick Jump: Bhatu will jump slightly before landing quickly, slamming a large area around him.
  • Jump into Air Slam: Brhatu will leap towards you before landing quickly with both fists slamming the ground. It’s almost the same as the fast jump, but it covers more distance.
  • Quick Kick: Brhatu will hit the player with a quick right kick. This is the only attack that does not hit in an area.


Phase two

When he reaches half health, a blue light forms in the cracks in Brhatu’s body, giving him a glow. In this phase, Brhatu will use all attacks from phase one with increased damage while gaining a new attack called Leap slam. For this attack, Brhatu quickly leaps high into the air before dropping back down, dealing damage in a massive area. You’ll most likely need to dodge this attack rather than step out of its radius, as it covers most of the arena.

Other tips

As previously stated, staying as far away from Brhatu as possible will make this fight much easier, so move away from the boss while constantly firing your pistols. Good dodge timing will also be needed to dodge attacks when you get caught too close to Brhatu. Note that patience is a virtue with this boss due to its large health pool. Finally, remember to use Fury Mode as much as possible to increase your damage and end the fight quickly.
