Metal Gear Rising Revengeance Defeat Monsoon

In Metal Gear Rising Revengeance, Raiden must defeat Monsoon and move into World Marshall headquarters. Monsoon is the toughest foe that Raiden has faced so far. This will guide Raiden and provide tactics on how to defeat Monsoon.

Metal Gear Rising Tactics Used by Monsoon to Defeat Raiden

Monsoon will use a variety of tactics to defeat the hero. First, he will attack the hero with some acrobatic techniques and his weapon the sai which he will hold in his hands initially. Monsoon will attempt to strike at the hero from various angles where Raiden cannot see him and cannot defend himself. Monsoon will try to pin Raiden onto the ground and use his sai attacks on the hero.

Then Monsoon will release some kind of red phosphorus smoke that makes Raiden’s infra-red ineffective. Monsoon will continue to jump out of the shadows to attack Raiden. After this, Monsoon will start hurling objects at Raiden and these series of objects will become larger and larger as the battle continues.

Monsoon will relaunch into his melee attack mode after throwing objects at Raiden. This time, however, Monsoon’s offensive techniques and defenses become tougher and more stylish. Monsoon will continue to strike at Raiden from impossible angles. At the same time, he will use magnetic sai, which is a ranged form of attack where he stays far away from Raiden and projects the sai forwards to attack Raiden using magnetism. In addition, Monsoon will be able to dissemble himself into blocks which will conveniently detach at the points where Raiden is striking him. Tough indeed.

Monsoon will continue to throw objects at Raiden periodically through the fight. One of the objects will be a gigantic spiked wheel. Against these odds, Raiden must use his offensive and defensive skills at opportune moments to survive the fight and defeat Monsoon.

Metal Gear Rising Revengeance Tactics Needed to Defeat Monsoon

Raiden should use the following techniques when trying to defeat Monsoon

  • go into ninja run and try to avoid Monsoon’s attacks.
  • parry counter when possible, although it would be very tough as Monsoon’s attacks can be very unpredictable.
  • use Mistral’s polearm and swing it in any direction when Raiden cannot see Monsoon and then swing it repeatedly in Monsoon’s direction when Raiden can see him. This will allow Raiden to hit Monsoon from a distance with a long weapon.
  • after a few hits, Monsoon will be incapacitated temporarily. Move in for blade attacks to drop Monsoon’s health drastically.
  • this technique can also be used when Monsoon begins to dissemble himself into a few pieces.
  • when Monsoon starts throwing objects at Raiden, use blade form to hack them into pieces.
  • bring lots of nano repair packages for this fight, and pick up some more from the hacked pieces of objects on the ground. Heal up when Raiden’s health drops to about 15% or less.
  • avoid the wheel with spikes by running around the battlefield.

It will take some time and lots of well practiced moves on the controller, but Monsoon can be defeated. Raiden will learn from this battle and fashion his own combat sai.
