How do I finish the fight when first getting onto the Endurance?
Having got as far as the wreck of the Endurance I am confronted with 3 guys loading salvage, two normal size who are easy to deal with and one big guy who takes a lot more. When he's almost done I have to attack with the axe (no problem) but then there's another key to press in quick succession and I cannot see which one it is or get past this point.

Every time I fail to press the right key at the tight moment and I get thrown to the ground and have to start again. Been trying to get beyond this point for ages. Help!

It's really frustrating. I should say I'm using keyboard controls and standard mapping.

Really? I know it's F first time on the axe - that I can do - but on mashing F again after that it never works...

I had this issue. The second F needs to be very well timed - if you mash too early he grabs you (versus normal circumstances where if you mash too early you are not penalized). So time it just as it hits the circle.

Had a heck of a time with what you are talking about on the last boss fight. There are 3 swings twice to take him down. I am on pc so maybe that is the difference.

Did it in the end - I think (although I'm not sure) that holding a left (A) or up (W) key whilst also pressing the F key helped. Loved the game as a whole - hated these QTE elements.

I have same problem. I play on PC and everytime I get first swing, but for the love of god and meshing F on keyboard I can´t get to second swing...

On PC, fire at his head with any weapon when it is exposed. When he is damaged, run to him and press F to swing the axe at him. After the first swing hits successfully, press E to momentarily freeze the next axe swing target opportunity, and then press F to swing the axe. Repeat again with the next movement sequence and then you'll defeat him.

The weird part is figuring out to press the E to get the next axe swing target to appear. Alternate between F and E a couple times and it's over quickly.

Doesn´t work, I´ve tried.

I think it's the E that has to be mashed, to, ehm, pull the axe out again I suppose. It's gory when you think about it, really.

Well, you see you need a 1 ton powered suit of armor, an amazing AI companion, and a badass voice actor to finish the fight.

Otherwise, it won't work.

you must wait for the reticules to close and only press the F key when the red square symbol appears, do this 3 times to kill the boss
