Tips and Tricks for Defeating The Rampager In Borderlands 3
Here are some Tips and Tricks for defeating the monster.
- Constantly keep moving around the room. Don’t stop for anything.
- Take advantage of when the Rampager climbs to platforms above the room. He will inflict little to no damage on you during this process.
- Stay clear of his fire balls, use the environment around you and the good ol’ jump button to dodge the incoming attacks.
- Try to use a weapon with high incendiary bonuses, as the more damage you can deal, the faster he will be killed.
