Stuck at Scorchers Boss (Spoilers)
Happily meandering through the new DLC and I get to a boss fight with an airship. I blow all the side panels off to get to the blue glowy things and blast them. After a while they are no longer blue, the airship is down to about a quarter health and I'm out of ideas. Nothing else seems to harm it. It keeps going through the same routine of shooting me, sending men at me and bombing me. I'm wondering what I have to do to progress. Any ideas?

Is this the first or second time you've encountered it? Once you've damaged it enough it's supposed to fly away and then you can progress a little further. Then it comes back and you finish it off for good.

Perhaps try reloading from a checkpoint?

Hey Roph, thanks for the reply. It's the second encounter, I damaged it, it flew away and came back, so I damaged it some more, but after a while it becomes undamageable (is that a word?). I have tried 3 times from a save just before the first encounter and get the same result every time: stalemate.

I was stumped on this for a bit too, you have to destroy the smaller thrusters near the bottom.

Thanks Tex, I'll give that a try first thing tomorrow... Too tired to shoot anything right now!

Everything that glows blue, kill it.

OK, everything that glows blue is now blown into bits! (Thanks Psygo) The resulting explosion was rather satisfying but I do feel a bit of a numpty for not thinking of that earlier. I had tried other guns on the thrusters but didn't think to use the launcher for some reason. Oh well. Off to rescue some dude who's got captured by the authority now. Thanks for the help guys.....

Wow, if I hadn't come here out of pure frustation I would of never known how to damage it period!
I shot a few rockets and did a small bit of damage and I thought my game had bugged...
Seriously I know "glowing SHOOT ME" bits are obvious but I didn't know I had to shoot it, like the game doesn't give any clues at all :/

Yes, Flame, I have to say glowing blue bits don't say 'shoot me' as well as glowing red bits might. Also the boss health bar is tiny and white. Fortunately, there aren't too many of this type of fight in the game, most of it is much more free-form and therefore, for me, much more fun.

Thanks guys, Im having the same problem. Going to shoot all that blue stuff on the frakkin' ship. Wish me luck!

I was stuck here too but I 100% tried destroying everything blue with the launcher wasn't working so was stuck trying everything else but maybe there was one time glitch where it didn't work and I just have to try till it works
