Remember Escape from Aperture Pt. 1? Remember how disappointingly easy and nonthreatening it was? Well, consider this my best form of apology.

This is a redux of the Wheatley boss battle. Not related to Escape from Aperture, but its own mix.

Morely, it's a mix between the main Portal 2 Final Boss and the 12 Angry Tests (by CaretCaret) boss battle.

Reasons why:
Main Battle characteristics:
- It's a battle against WheatDOS
- The facility is in imminent danger.
- Bombs and neurotoxin are implemented.
- It involves PotatOS and the Core Transfer.
12 Angry Tests Battle characteristics:
- The arena is themed after the Art Therapy theme. (Plastic walls)
- The bombs are dropped out of tubes and launched at the player by faith plates.
- It's not quite normal.
Custom characteristics:
- The faith plates become beneficial to the player at some point
- Wheatley's shields are light bridges
- The tubes break at certain points
- The core transfer is initiated, but since there is no moon suction here, you see GLaDOS's head initially enter the room. (See Portal 2 final battle ending sans the moon suction)

Known bugs/mistakes/goofs:
- May be laggy.
- Some dialog blends together/is improperly timed
- Wheatley's lines sometimes don't cut off when he's stunned
- Obligatory lighting errors on physboxes
- Wheatley's bottom row of shields clips through the body ring
- The broken tube debris might complicate things
- In Phase 2, sometimes the glow on a node doesn't disappear when the node is down.
- In Phase 3, Wheatley's hitbox is a little off. My solution? Stand so Wheatley is directly between you and the bomb tube, and when the bomb hits the plate, dash to your left or your right.
- In certain situations during Phase 4, you could very well get to the stalemate button but are blocked by an invisible wall.

Phase 1:
- After the dialog finishes, get the bombs to hit the bases of the four pillars around the room.
- Grab Space Core and hop on the lowered faith plate to plug him in on the left wall.
Phase 2:
- Get a bomb to hit each of the four floor nodes. A node is deactivated when it stops spinning and stops glowing green. (Glow might not disappear)
- TIP! Bombs typically aim at where your feet are located.
- Grab Adventure Core and hop on the plate to plug HIM in on the right wall.
Phase 3:
- Simply get a bomb to go between Wheatley's shields and hit him. Hitbox is a little buggy. (See bugs section)
- Grab Fact Core and take the faith plate to plug him in the back wall. (Beware of falling tubes)
Phase 4:
- After Wheatley turns on his mobile shields, wait for GLaDOS to come in.
- After GLaDOS finishes talking, she will lower the right and left faith plates.
- Jump on either of the aforementioned plates to get atop Wheatley, and from there, dash around to hit all four buttons.
- Hop down and hit the Stalemate Resolution Button.
- Leave when GLaDOS tells you to.

Congratulations! You've beaten the boss. Did you need the walkthrough?

Hey, you. I see you there, about to post a comment.
Mmkay? Good.
FAQ: "How did you get Wheatley in there?"
- I use the Portal 2 Authoring Tools, the toolkit used by Valve themselves to create the main single-player and multiplayer campaign of Portal 2. As such, this tool has every single asset in the game available for use, though you need to figure it out first before you can do anything.

2.0 is about the same difficulty, it's just that there's now a level before the boss and one or two things have been changed so they're more clear.

But seriously, the NYS boss is the most difficult Portal 2 boss you'll fight.

yes it feel like hard mode boss but i beat Wheatley Battle Redux 2.0
Anachronistic ALLOS  [author] Oct 2 @ 2:43pm 
If you feel like it's Hard Mode. I know for sure there's a harder boss fight available on the Portal 2 workshop, not by me.

If you want a hard Portal 2 boss, go play the 5-part NYS series by Nyskrte. That's got a really hard boss at the end.

A hard mode final boss?

It's a magical entity called a func_tank.

Figure it out yourself.

Oi what the fuck is going on here? I try to take one day off, just one, to get a plentiful sleep before work today, and I come back to these shenanigans. I mean crap man, I can barely remember yesterday, let alone November. If I hurt your friend's feelings I apologize for that, sincerely.

He's very hostile against those who act like fools. I'm generally more level with such people, more polite.

Imagine it like NSE is Bad Cop and I'm Good Cop, and there's the image there.

Sorry but i dont like people who attack my friends. Im very sorry.
Anachronistic ALLOS  [author] Aug 23 @ 3:43am 
Actually, NSE is my friend. Me and him are on the same side. We're both just rallying against foolishness. Things we also rally against; unwarranted praise (yes, that can be a thing if it sounds like you're trying to butter someone up) and people demanding that we make stuff for them.
