*Video sometimes stutters and audio will lag.* l.5x

Alex Mercer "First Form":

During the first Stage or his first form (in this case the Blade form) use your "whipfist" as your primary weapon and "hammerfist" as your secondary. When engaging for an attack, jump in the air but not too high or too far from Mercer (make sure when you jump you do not jump or land in the outer or edge of the map) then strike him with your "whipfist". Keep doing this process repeatedly after each strike. At some point, there will be an action button for your "hammerfist". Make sure you executive your "hammerfist" before it's too late. After that keep whipfisting him and repeat that whipfist process until his health is 0.

Tip: At this point, when his health is gone, press "Space" to dodge his air Blade forceful strike.

Alex Mercer "Second Form":

On this stage, your "hammerfist" is the best choice of murder. After you have dodged his helicopter (press space to dodge helicopter) use your hammerdive attack. Keep spamming the sh!t out of this move as you have no choice but to. Also, make sure when you are spamming the hammerdive, you do it in a similar fashion as the whipfist move like you did earlier in the first stage or first form.

Note: I don't remember if it was stage two or three but when he puts his hand down in the ground get away quick as this is his ground spike attack which can be very dangerous if you get caught in it (just found out he does this move on any form)! Also if he summons those birds (most likely on his third and final form) use your devastator move. Also when his health hits 0 and he jumps in the air, quickly hit "Ctrl" (your spike block)

Alex Mercer "Third/Final Form":

This stage is probably easier than the previous one. Anyways just do like you did with your "whipfist" just like his first form stage.

After his health is gone, press space to dodge is hammerfist and just do those quick action moves correctly and you'll be fine.

Congratz! You have defeated Mercer and won the game! Good job! :)

I didn't see the trailer. But yeah, you're right. I's just that I saw the title of this guide just after launching the game for the first time, but after a few hours it's pretty obvious that Mercer is the final boss.

@SmokingChild, well the Trailer already spoiled it and possibly the intro too.

Can you change your post title? It's a nice spoiler for those who care about the story (not me, but someone could complain).
