While playing through the singleplayer of Splatoon 2, players will encounter tons of enemies that will have to be defeated, in order to progress. This includes Bosses as well, so it can get tough at times.
We recently guided players on how to defeat the first boss of the game called Octo Oven. After you have defeated it, you will progress through the game and eventually face the second boss called the Octo Samurai. This boss might look tough and is one of the biggest bosses in the game, but he is quite easy to take down.
How To Defeat Octo Samurai In Splatoon 2:
The Octo Samurai is an intimidating boss, but is easy to defeat. Similar to the fight with the Octo Oven, the Octo Samurai fight has three stages. When the fight starts, keep your distance from the boss and attack him from afar. Be on your guard, as he has an attack where he rides his roller like a motorbike and charges towards you. If you do not have a long range weapon, walk around the boss and evade his attacks. Wait for him to do an area attack, and attack him right after his attack. You will have to do this until the Octo Samurai is covered in your ink. Once he is completely covered in the ink, he will explode and a tentacle will appear in front of you. Destroy the tentacle to progress to the second stage.
The second stage is pretty much the same as the first stage, however, the Octo Samurai has a new attack. In the second stage, you will have to keep an eye on the boss. When you see his eyes shine for a split second, this is when he will perform a sweeping attack around himself. Aside from the new attack, the Octo Samurai will perform the motorbike roller attack as well. You will have to do the same thing as before, if you want to take him down.
In the third and final stage, players will have to watch out for all the previous attacks, as well as a new attack that is very dangerous. In the final stage, Octo Samurai will unleash three attacks in a row, that will travel across the whole battle arena in a straight line. You will have to ink the boss, while having to dodge all the old and the new attacks. Ink Octo Samurai and take out the tentacle for the final time.
After you pop the tentacle for the final time, collect your rewards and progress further into the singleplayer mode. Hopefully this guide helped you defeat Octo Samurai with ease. Splatoon 2 is now available on the Nintendo Switch.
