Ghostrunner – Enemy Guide
A semi in-depth guide on how to properly combat the wide array of enemies in this game. This post will have pictures/videos in the future for better examples.
Fairly straight forward, shoots once every(ish) second and a half, just make sure to close the gap and swing, but don’t run into his bullets.
Okay, you want to get these things. First, they make the enemies inside immune to your normal sword attack and can only be killed if you use an ability on them (not including overlord). Instead, just parkour to wherever it is and bonk it once, then play the level as usual.
Machine Gun Man
If you hear him shooting, don’t even engage, you will 100% die unless you use tempest or blink. Instead, run around until he stops shooting, then closes the gap and kill. When he has buddies near him, he’ll yell to them that he’s reloading, so that helps a bit.
Sluggers (melee punch guys)
These guys have two primary attacks, the jumping lunge attack, and if you’re too close, a lunging punch attack. When they jump, just dodge to the side or back, and you should be okay. HOWEVER, they make the lunge attack when you’re wall-running, so be careful of that. The lunging punch attack can probably be parried? I’m not sure; I just dodge out of the way.
Shield Gun Man
So these guys looked at Blackbeard from Rainbow Six Seige and said, “I can do better.” They have a half-circle covering the front half of their body, and while they can still shoot through it, you can’t swing through it. Use the bullet time you get from dashing in the air to orbit around them and get the kill. When they shoot, they only shoot three bullets, then reload, but the reload is quick, so be on guard around them.
The walking laser line robots
Okay, when I first walked around the corner and saw this thing, it instantly killed me, but not to worry, it’s not that complicated. Whenever it flashes, it takes your position and range into account and tries to shoot a line of lasers at you, so either dodges under it or dodge over it. If you don’t dodge, you’re probably dead. Oh right, if you’re far enough away, you can simply dash+slide to get a bunch of speed and then just bonk it. You can also use tempest and reflect all of the lasers at it.
Wardens (katana guys)
These guys took one out of Kill Bill; they’re complete weebs. Just wait for the red flash and swing at them when they dash at you. They can miss, though, so you have a 50/50% chance of being alive if you dodge.
He only shows up in the city, don’t worry about doing this for too long. Just stay in cover; that’s all there is to it. And if you need to get to cover quickly, like before, just dash and slide for many speed.
These things are mainly used as platforming food, but they can be annoying to deal with. They shoot a projectile every(ish) three-quarter of a second, so just reflect it at them. If you can’t do that, just get equal with it in height and dash into it.
Hel / knockoff ghostrunner
Just parry all her attacks. You’ll know when to parry when her sword flashes yellow. Also, don’t get hit by the surge attacks she throws out while you move from platform to platform.
These things can’t move, just stay out of their line of sight, and you’ll be okay. Also, if you cross their vision, you will die in about 0.6 seconds, no joke.
These things are not required to kill to exit an area, so basically, just ignore them and stay away. In addition to this, don’t melee them; you’ll die; if you can, use the shuriken power-up to deal with them, but again, they are NOT required to kill so you can leave the area.
Teleporting laser guys
These guys can be obnoxious but relatively simple. Either use the jump power-up if it’s available and focus them or just flank them. But be aware of the smaller surge projectiles they throw out; they’re fast.
The only ones with an actual section name and they aren’t even that hard to kill. Just either line up one good surge or overlord one of them, and that’s two out of the picture, or you killed the main one. Oh yeah, if you kill the main one, the rest will fizzle out and disappear.
New note: if you use the mid-air bullet time effect, all the fakes will be completely red, while the original will be normal
And that’s it; let me know if I missed anything, and I’ll get on it. Also, I’ll be adding videos to show how to deal with specific enemies; just give me time.
