♥♥♥♥ ARMSTRONG!
Guys i'm salty as ♥♥♥♥, been fighting with the mother♥♥♥♥ing Armstrong for 2 hours already on the hardest difficulty, with no health packs. This is honetlsy the most frustrating boss i've ever fought in any video game, so please pleeease some tips ? I know i can eventually do it, got him to 70% once, but it just can't be THAT frustrating ... there must be some super moves you can do to stun him or deal loads of damage ... ?

Do you cut those rocks that he throws? They drops 4 health pack. Also if you see Armstrong doing that supercharge rush which becomes to QTE then try to make/block/attack to make you doing the better version of that QTE

He will be really easy once you get your Murasama sword fully upgraded. That is after you beat the game for the first time.

You can run away from the rocks he throws at you.

Why? Are you awful with blade mode or is the 2nd rock leaving you only 1 second or less to react? Because if the latter occurs then you are experiencing one of the known bugs of this game.

This times a billion. You can knock the difficulty down to beat him and get the sword and upgrade it for the higher difficulty fight. It'll save you some sanity. Also X+A if you have defensive offence has a decent amount of invulnurability frames you can abuse but it can be a pain to learn the timings at first.

And don't stand in the fire!

Ok ♥♥♥♥ this game. I just don't understand the blade mode mechanics in the throwing boulders part, the first one is almost always OK, but the problem with the seccond one is that i just can't line the blade on the 4 squares, the line is always under the 4 points and it's impossible to hit them and i won't bother killing him without 4 free health packs. I'm a noob ♥♥♥♥♥ that's been too spiled by Dark Souls's fairness and comprehensive game mechanics. It's time to go hide somewhere like a puppy, because this game seriously kicked my ♥♥♥, it sucks that i can't bring the difficulty down a bit, because up to this final boss, i had a blast. Now i'm frustrated.

You have to position the camera also, not just the sword. But don't waste you time in this bs. Restart the level and make sure you get to this fight with health packs.

personally what i found most frustrating about the boss was his mech form. Other than that I didn't really have much problems with him while playing on the hardest difficulty

You dont need to line 4 square even though if seems like that. You can cut 3(or 2 if you are feeling lucky) squares. Also does your game run at 60fps?

If you're having far too much trouble with the rocks, then run away from them instead of cutting them. I found the rocks nearly impossible to cut in time with a mouse, but much easier with a controller... I never have an easier time with a controller than a mouse and keyboard!

If it helps, Armstrong had me raging, too, until I went and replayed the level to fill my repair nanopaste reserves.

yes if your game doesnt run at 60fps in that qte part is imposible.maybe iam wrong?

The sub-60 FPS QTE being impossible was patched some time ago, supposedly.
