“One of many Cuphead DLC bosses has a secret section”
You may need a better time with it, too
Followers are flying by way of Cuphead: The Scrumptious Final Course, and I don’t blame them — it’s been a very long time coming, and the brand new bosses are an audio-visual deal with, as anticipated. The urge to burn by way of the gauntlet and circle again round to enhance the grades is excessive.
That mentioned, it pays to take it gradual and respect the finer particulars. One in all them, a secret alternate boss section within the Cuphead DLC, is low-key blowing my thoughts for a couple of causes.
First off, it’s been some time; I forgot that alternate boss patterns have been even on the menu for Cuphead. Naturally, Studio MDHR would carry it ahead for The Scrumptious Final Course, proper?
Whereas I’m undecided what else is lurking on the market (I’ve seen… some stuff, however I’m positive there’s extra), gamers have found at the least one neat secret that I by no means would’ve discovered alone. Even when you know the way to set off it, it’s just a little difficult to tug off.
The boss in query is The Howling Aces in “Doggone Dogfight.”
Somewhat than pilot a airplane (like within the shmup bosses), you struggle on prime of 1.
Right here’s how the boss struggle usually goes:
- Within the first section, canines throw tennis balls, bones, and even heat-seeking hydrants at you when you take pot-shots on the bulldog in cost.
- Then, within the second section, 4 jetpack-wearing pooches swirl round your airplane, chucking projectile “B,” “O,” and “W” letters at you.
- Within the remaining section, the ring chief brings out the large weapons and even flips the display on its aspect and upside-down. It’s… rather a lot. I’ve to bodily tilt my head to maintain up.
Because it seems, there’s a secret third section for this Cuphead DLC boss.
Right here’s the way to activate it
Within the second section, as an alternative of unceremoniously gunning down the jetpack canines, you may whittle down their well being till they’re all almost knocked out. The key phrase: almost.
The trick is to shoot the canines simply sufficient in order that their smoke trails flip from white to grey — however if you happen to push it too far, they’ll spiral off the display. I’ve a tip.
I’ve had one of the best outcomes with the Cost shot. Attempt to totally energy up your pictures and hit every of the jetpack canines as soon as, then hit all of them once more with a single weaker, non-charged shot. That ought to do exactly sufficient harm to show the exhaust grey with out overdoing it.
There’s plenty of chaos, so it’s splendid to know exactly what number of pictures it’s essential to take.
The Howling Aces’ secret alternate section
Due to your further effort within the second section, as an alternative of coping with lasers and screen-flipping shenanigans within the remaining spherical, you’ll have a (comparatively) calmer time.
With the alternate section, you principally simply have to fret about pineapples (attempt to not shoot them!) when you focus your pictures on the ring chief, who pops up in numerous spots.
For those who can play methodically, it’s simpler than the default path. Neat recreation!
