Stuck - can't win against big baddie :(
I just got on board of the endurance to find Alex and now I am stuck. Whatever I try, the big bad guy mops the floor with my ♥♥♥. Yes I have seen videos of how to beat him. Yes, I have set my combat settings to easy. It still won't work. I get the hint for pressing the "F" (melee) button just once when I begin the fight, but pressing F doesn't do anything. I keep mashing F and the Shift key for evasion, but whatever I do, the big one picks me up and throws me around. I am stuck here for hours already. What can I do? Does anyone have a save file from after the fight?

Dodge with Shift when he attacks, wait for the shrinking circle to become smaller that the static one and the exclamation mark to appear, THEN press F.

Wow, how can someone get stuck in Tomb Raider? The game is way too easy (even on hard).
Beat him yourself, the satisfaction you get after beating something, after you've died countless times is priceless, don't rob yourself of that.

Yet, no one asked you zaney. Anyone can get stuck on any game, just because you didn't, doesn't mean you have to be an ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ to anyone who does.

This guy is too pro. It's definately not too easy on hard.

On topic, roll out his attacks and shoot him in the back. After you go into the QTE event the first time his helmet should be off and you can shoot him there in addition to his bare back. I used the shotgun for the big guy, rifle for the little guys he calls up to help him.

Thanks guys, I finally managed. My problem was that I didn't wait for the circle to become small enough. Thanks a lot for your help!

I'm still unable to kill him, I am trying for an hour now, but the game keeps ignoring me when I press F on the QTE.
Is it a bug or did I just fail the QTE more than 50 times? I try by smashing the F key, by clicking just before the exclamation mark appears, by clicking just after it does, by clicking at the exact moment when it does, but for the game, it's just as if I did not click.

Yes, have to wait until circle small enough, timing is everything!

This game actually is ridiculously easy even on hard. I probably died 5 times total, and 2 of those were due to misclicks. Just abuse the hell out of the dodge counter and every bossfight becomes a cakewalk.
