How to defeat Kai Lang in Mass Effect 3
Kai Lang, the cybernetically-enhanced Cerberus assassin from Mass Effect 3, can't wait to add Shepard to his list of kills. If you want to survive, you'll need to keep your wits about you.
- The most important thing to do when facing Kai Lang is to keep your distance. This may be more difficult if you rely on heavy melee or biotic charges, but you're no match for Kai Lang's blade. Keep moving and keep your distance.
- Don't box yourself in. You'll need, at various points, both room to maneuver and cover.
- Perhaps your biggest advantage over Kai Lang is your team. By spreading out, Kai Lang will only be able to attack one of you at a time.
The First Fight
When facing down Kai Lang in the Asari temple, you'll have a bit of trouble maneuvering around the room, so make sure that you always have a route of escape. Make sure you are always near cover, because when the gunship swoops in, you'll need to keep your head down. Keep your squad members alive and take down Kai Lang's barriers. When he stops to recharge, don't worry about firing. You won't be able to actually kill Kai Lang in this fight.
The Second Fight
This fight offers more in the way of maneuverability, but that also means that Kai Lang has a straight shot towards you. In addition, you have less to hide behind. As with the first fight, you'll need to strip Kai Lang of his barriers, and you'll have to do it more than once. Thankfully, there's no gunship to deal with this time. Instead, you'll need to fight some Cerberus soldiers. However, at this point in the game, you shouldn't have any trouble tearing them apart.
