Sometimes Hyper Light Drifter’s enemies need a constant flow of firepower to take them down before they turn you into mincemeat. This will require you to use all of the weapons you have at your disposal in one effective combo.

The game tells you toward the start of the game that slashing enemies with your sword will refill the ammo for your guns. Your guns will become incredibly useful when dealing with large groups of enemies, but even more so when trying to take down a boss. These incredibly strong enemies have huge health bars and so pulling off combos with your weapons is the best way to take them down quickly.

First, identify their pattern and work out the ideal times to use your sword, and when it may be safer to attack from a distance. Next, run in and slash with your sword during their moments of vulnerability. Once you’ve dealt a couple of blows and need to retreat, start firing off rounds with your weapon to keep whittling away at their health bar. Rinse and repeat this method to ensure that you’re never wasting an opportunity to get a quick hit in.

Even better, if you buy the grenade upgrade you can knock a couple blocks of health off any boss by rolling it close into the boss just before their little intro animation begins. It’s not a ton of damage, but you’ll be thankful for midway through.
