  • When facing the Inferno Rider, players must adapt their strategies based on the boss’s current phase. During the Bike Phase, the Inferno Rider attacks using either its weapon or the bike itself.
  • When the boss glows and prepares to strike on its right, it indicates a weapon attack. Conversely, if the vehicle glows and the rider performs a wheelie, an attack using the bike is imminent. Timing dodges precisely is crucial to avoid taking excessive damage. Moreover, frequently using Intro and Outro skills can help reduce the boss’s Vibration Strength, allowing players to progress to the next phase more quickly.
  • Once the Inferno Rider’s Vibration Strength is depleted during the Bike Phase, it will transition to the Standing Phase, where it fights without its bike. During this phase, players can counter the boss’s attacks by striking when the yellow rings overlap. To successfully parry an attack, players must time their Basic Attack to hit the enemy precisely when the rings overlap.
  • It is essential to be close to the enemy for the parry to work, even for characters wielding long-range weapons like Pistols or Rectifiers. Successful parries will rapidly reduce the Inferno Rider’s Vibration Strength, rendering it immobile and vulnerable to further damage. Parrying also generates a significant amount of Concerto Energy, which can be used to trigger powerful Outro and Intro Skills after switching characters.
  • It is important to note that the Inferno Rider is resistant to Fusion damage, so players should avoid using Resonators and Echoes that deal this type of damage, as their effectiveness will be diminished.
