Sector 5 - ARC - Part 3
an explosion caused by a dangerous creature that was being kept here as a bioweapon, and is now probably infected by the X... holy shit lol this place has so little security precautions against parasitic lifeforms, considering how many dangerous creatures are kept here.
many sections of this area are now blocked off due to the structural damage, and some parts are now flooded and have tougher enemies that shoot plasma beams... a new section is opened up.. there's some paths that I need the gravity suit to get through, and a boss door to a data room that I'm guessing contains the gravity suit data..
yikes.. this boss that warps gravity.. is really hard... your missiles are too heavy to reach him and you have to run under him to get a charge shot in while he's in the air, and then run away before he lands on you... and then his last phase he starts chasing you around and is really hard to avoid.. and whenever I stop to try and get some hits in on his face, he corners me... even using really careful space jump maneuvers I still can't keep him from cornering me, it's like you can't avoid getting hit most of the time.
there... I found out the best strategy for defeating that boss's final form was to lure him into going back to his "shooting at you while slowly moving toward you" phase by standing in the bottom left corner when he is at the furthest point away from you... and then hang on the ladder overhead and pour as many missiles into his face as you can (going rhythmically, so you don't waste missiles in between invincibility frames), and don't even bother to get off the ladder to avoid getting hit, just allow yourself to get hit and take advantage of those invincibility frames to get a few more shots in before he goes back into chasing mode...
