Merciless Knight is waiting in the Mausoleum, the place where you played as Ashley and you had to light the four symbols to open the door and evade enemies. Go there as Leon and you will find the enemy accompanied by two animated armors.
How to fight Merciless Knight?
The key to winning against Merciless Knight is to use Flash Grenades. The grenades will stun all enemies, companions included.
After that, move behind the knight and fire some powerful weapon at his tentacles. Unfortunately, they are on the back of his neck, and dealing damage to it will be difficult unless you keep stunning him. Despite his massive posture, the Knight moves around quite quickly, so it might be difficult to get behind his back, also because of his companions.
Once you deal enough damage, the fight will become easier because his tentacles will come out of his head and thus, it will be easier to finish him off. Keep shooting at him until he's defeated and after that, you can still finish off his companions.
You will receive as many as 8 Spinels for completing the Merciless Knight Request. In addition, defeating enemies will also earn you gemstones.
