This section describes the boss fight with the second boss of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice - the Chained Ogre. It's a greater challenge than the first enemy of this type. The advice below will enable you to learn how to get to the boss, what preparations to make and what to pay attention to during the fight.
Where to find the Chained Ogre?
Location: Ashina Outskirts [Outskirts Wall Stairway]
Rewards: Prayer Bead, Skills: Shinobi Medicine Rank 1
You encounter Chained Ogre on your way to Outskirts Wall Stairway, near the Sculptor's Idol located at the top of the stairs. This is the second boss in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and the second boss in Ashina Outskirts.
You can't stab the Ogre in the back. Even though the Ogre starts the fight immobilized, he will free himself. Simply focus on dealing as much damage as possible.
How to defeat the Chained Ogre?
When the Ogre frees himself, he will use the following attacks - triple kick, drop attack, overhead attacks. He will also use a special attack - grapple. If he catches you, this attack will take about 90% of your health.
Important note - when you deplete one health bar of the Ogre, you have to deal him critical damage by using the grappling hook on him. Press the right button when you notice the grappling hook icon above the Ogre's head.
You can't parry this boss's attacks. Use dodges and jumps to avoid the Ogre's attacks. You can avoid the grab attack by jumping - dodge may not be enough.
- You can sneak up on the Ogre unnoticed to deal him more damage before he frees himself - this requires you to use Gachiin's Sugar.
- Watch out for a soldier with a pike - he is waiting for you on top of a small hill, left of the stairs. When he notices you, he will join the Ogre.
- Flame Vent prosthetic tool is great for this fight. If you use it, the boss won't attack you for a few seconds. You can also set the Ogre on fire - he will receive fire damage over time. Increase this effect by throwing Oil at the boss before you use Flame Vent. If you don't have this tool, you can use, e.g. Shinobi Firecracker.
- The Sculptor's Idol is nearby - go back here if you lost too much health. Rest and return to the boss.
Win the fight to receive a Prayer Bead (collect four to increase vitality and damage). If you died many times during this battle and in the battles before it, you will receive Shinobi Medicine Rank 1 skill.
