Alan Wake 2 is a game where exploration (with the discovery of various collectibles) and investigation are the most important things. However, there are also some boss fights to face to see the credits of the game. In this article, therefore, we will tell you how to beat Nightingale in Alan Wake 2, so that you can continue with your adventure.
Alan Wake 2 Nightingale boss fight
The first thing to know regarding this boss fight is that it is divided into two different phases. His fighting style is actually very defensive, so you shouldn’t have much trouble defeating him. However, if you don’t follow the right strategy, you could still be caught by surprise, literally.
In fact, Nightingale will use ambushes as an attack method. During the first phase, what you will have to do is equip your flashlight and direct it toward him to blind him and expose his weak points. Destroy all these weak points and, once done, start hitting him on the head to inflict more damage until the first phase of the fight ends.
In the second phase, things will change a bit. While Nightingale will still use the ambush tactic, it will be a little different now. Before engaging in real combat, we advise you to collect all the supplies that are around; you will need them. Once you’re ready, head towards the red light to begin the second phase.
As soon as he appears, if you use the torch, you will realize that he will no longer have weak points. Using the flashlight is still recommended, but focus on hitting him in the head. At a certain point, Nightingale will disappear again and then appear at a more or less regular interval three times. Hit all three times to end this fight. And that’s it. Now you know how to beat Nightingale in Alan Wake 2 and you are ready to continue your adventure.
