Information About the boss:
The Boobeam trap (or bomb boss as most people call it) is the boss of Wily stage 4 in Mega man 2, this is one of the hardest boss fights in the entire game and requires a combination of tought and skill to execute flawlessly. At the start of the fight you will notice a maze like arena with devices scattered around the walls (those devices are the traps you will need to defuse), this is a special boss in the Mega man series since it can only be damaged by 1 weapon: The Crash Bomb (or Clash bomb if you are playing the game in Japanese).
Step 1: Go for the first 2 bombs at the left of the arena, quickly select item 1 and create 2 platforms in rapid sucession in order to climb to the first trap; when there simply defuse it by shooting a Crash Bomb at it (or you could try the alternative method for more experienced players)
Step 1 (alt method):Differently from the other method you will need to spawn 1 item 1 platform then jump to the ground on the right, then you will have to do a very precise jump right in order to reach the top bomb (take note this jump is not very easy to pull of consistently)
Step 2: After you have taken care of the bomb using either method go on the ground on the right (mentioned on step 1 alt) and simply shoot one Crash Bomb at the barricated wall causing it to explode revealing the next device, after doing so simply shoot another Crash bomb at the device.
Step 3: Once you are on the ground mentioned before simply jump and shoot bomb number 3
Step 4: After you’ve killed bomb 3 jump over its platform and go down to kill bomb number 4 (WARNING: DO NOT SHOOT THE BRICK WALL IN FRONT OF BOMB NUMBER 4 AFTER YOU HAVE KILLED IT! Simply grab item 3 and float back where you came from to complete this level correctly.
Step 5: Bomb number 5 is pretty easy you just go down there under bomb number 3 and shoot it twice so it dies winning you the boss fight!
Special Notes and Conclusion
#1: You will need to have full ammo for both the Crash bomb and at least half full ammo for Item 1 before entering the fight. If you dont do so you will not complete the boss fight
#2: Make your shots count. The Crash bomb only has 8 shots in its clip which means that if you dont follow the steps or miss a bomb you have lost the boss fight (that is why I highly recomend saving the game before entering this boss fight since it will allow you to attemp it many times in succession
#3: Be fast. During the entire time you are trying to do this the boss will fire at you every 5 seconds, so you need to act quick. Dont even bother dodging since the shots are practically unavoidable (be aware that everytime you destroy a device 1 less bullet is fired at you)
#4: Dont Jump at the wrong time. The devices will blink in red everytime they are about to fire and while they are blinking DO NOT try to jump or shoot at a bomb since the recoil from the bullets might screw up your jump/shot
#5: This is the only boss in the game that isnt affected by hard mode (he will take the same amount of hits to kill in normal mode as he would in hard mode)
After reading this I wish good luck to all you gamers who have made it this far into the game and hopefully after reading this all of you will defeat Dr.Wily and his remaining army of robots.
