There are a handful of boss fights in CD Projekt Red’s latest action-RPG, and some of them can be particularly tricky if you’re unaware of their weaknesses. Here’s how to beat Sasquatch in Cyberpunk 2077 if you’re finding it hard to take out The Animals’ most powerful member.
How to Beat Sasquatch in Cyberpunk 2077
First, it’s worth noting that I beat Sasquatch at around level 25. If you’re well under that level then you’ll find her a tough challenge.
Sasquatch uses a large hammer to inflict big melee damage. She also moves very quickly and uses her cyberware to erect random walls around her position, which can make hitting her tough. You also need to watch out for her takedown, which pushes you to the ground before she infects you with some sort of virus that weakens you.
The tactic I found success with was sneaking into the area she’s patrolling and, when she’s on the phone, using a powerful sniper rifle such as Overwatch to get some big damage in before she gets close. I managed to fire off a good four or five shots before she charged me.
Crucially, you can target her weak spot from this position before the fight really kicks off. Sasquatch has a purple crystal on her back, and if you that she’ll be severely compromised.
In terms of her vulnerabilities, she’s weak to fire, so if you’re running the Mantis Blades and have access to the thermo mod then that’s highly effective in beating Sasquatch.
You can also use Quickhacks like Short Circuit and Overheat to whittle down her health. All Netrunner-style builds should always be using Breach Protocol at the start of a tricky boss encounter to give themselves an advantage.
