Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is littered with intense boss battles, many of which can be surprisingly difficult. Chapter 3 of the game has you taking down a Hand fortress, and in the process meeting quite a few of the Defenders. The first boss battle you fight there can be a bit tricky, so here’s how to beat the Elektra boss battle in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3.
How to Beat Elektra Boss Battle in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3
Before going into the battle, of course, make sure you’ve upgraded your character’s abilities as much as possible and used any Alliance Enhancement points you have built up.
In terms of the team you go in with, like every other battle you can realistically go with any team you’ve trained up. However, the Defenders are definitely a good choice for this one; so Luke Cage, Daredevil, and Iron Fist, all of which you recently recruited.
Luke Cage and Iron Fist have abilities that can quickly reduce an enemy’s stagger bar, especially Luke Cage’s Harlem Express. Because of how fast Elektra is at unleashing combos, you’ll want to keep her staggered as much as possible, which is why these two are good choices.
All three Defenders characters can take a beating, which also helps with Elektra’s quick and hard to avoid attacks. If you choose to pick these three, you’re then best off picking a ranged character for the fourth slot, like Star Lord or Scarlet Witch, so they can support you from a distance.
Another viable option is to go with three ranged characters and one melee, letting the melee character keep aggro up and draw Elektra’s attacks while the others pepper her with damage.
Elektra is being possessed by Hand ninjas in this boss battle, so your first order of business is taking down the three ninjas that have purple streams connecting them to her. While these ninjas are alive you won’t be able to damage Elektra at all, so don’t even bother attacking her until you’ve taken them down.
Using basic attacks or Synergies to lower their stagger bars, then once they’re staggered unload a bunch of abilities on them.
Once the ninjas are gone the battle isn’t too bad, just focus on breaking Elektra’s stagger gauge. If you’re playing as the Defenders use all of Luke Cage’s EP on Harlem Express, the switch to Iron Fist and use his Jump Kick ability.
If you’re playing as other heroes just do the same thing, and use their abilities to cause some good damage and break the stagger gauge. Then while she’s staggered your entire team can wail on Elektra.
If you’re playing multiplayer make sure the strongest character is constantly attacking Elektra, so they draw the aggro. Then have your other heroes jump in and out with attacks, but don’t focus on her for too long so the focus stays on that strong character.
Eventually, Elektra will go down, and you can carry on your merry way toward Kingpin.
