❱ RECOMMENDED EQUIPMENT

☑ Rocket Launcher
☑ Quiet or D-Walker (Thx to tawilk for D-Warlker Tip : ))

❱ GENERAL TIPS

☑ Get ammo through supply drops
☑ Shoot weak spot at front torso

The difficulty of this boss fight against Sahelanthropus depends very much on your equipment. Having upgraded weapons that deal a lot of damage is all that counts in mission 31. Bring a rocket launcher, grenade launcher or anything that deals a lot of damage and pick Quiet as a buddy since she also deals damage on the boss.

❱ MAIN STRATEGIES

As soon as the fight starts get behind a rock and order an ammo supply drop. You want to minimize the downtime where you run out of rockets. The focus on the center of Sahelanthropus. Almost every body part is highly armored except for his middle torso and a spot at his back if you get the chance.

Damage will be a lot higher in these two areas. There are several other spots that you can hit on him that cripple his abilities, like the radar ball next to his head, which makes his rockets less accurate when you destroy it.

But your goal should be do deal a lot of damage since his abilities are not a great threat if you keep moving.

❱ END PHASE OF THE FIGHT (03:45)

When his health is very low he will jump to a distant point and will shoot you with a sniper like laser that can kill you in one shot. Stay behind cover and peake out to shoot your rockets. The laser that’s a while to charge but can still be a big threat.

Then there is an attack where the floating creature will attack you in slow-mo. Quickly switch to a different weapon and land one shot to avoid this attack. The trick here is to react fast.

The mission 31 S-Rank for Sahelanthropus should be guaranteed if you complete it in a reasonable time.
