Luigi is back in this new Luigi’s Mansion game for the Nintendo Switch. King Boo is also back and has kidnapped Mario, Peach, and the rest of the gang and it’s up to Luigi to rescue them, again. If you’re trying to figure out how to beat the security guard boss in Luigi’s Mansion 3, here’s what you need to know.
How to Beat Security Guard Boss in Luigi’s Mansion 3
Once you gain access to the security office by collecting the star-shaped key from the shops, a boss battle will commence against the security guard/mall cop.
This boss fight isn’t too difficult, but here’s what you need to do to defeat him.
Boss Battle Tips
First off, you’re going to need to use Gooigi for the entirety of the fight because Luigi won’t be able to get past the gate. So just summon Gooigi by pressing down on the right stick and slip past the bars.
Since the security guard is wearing sunglasses, you’re going to need to take those away from him so that you can stun him with the strobe light.
Suck up the glasses by using the vacuum with the ZR button and once he’s open, just blind him by holding down the A button. Then, you can continue to hold ZR to begin to suck him up and cause damage.
The only thing you need to be careful about is when he shoots his water gun in the air. Gooigi is susceptible to water so just make sure to avoid it while you’re using your vacuum –this shouldn’t be too difficult. During our fight with the boss, we didn’t get hit once.
Just rinse and repeat and he’ll be gone in no time flat.
Time needed: 3 minutes.
To sum up, here’s how to beat the security guard boss in Luigi’s Mansion 3:
- Use Gooigi to slip through the gate to start the fight.
- Suck up the guard’s sunglasses and then use the strobe light to stun him.
- Hold ZR to use the vacuum to suck him up while also avoiding the water from his gun.
