In this episode of our Nioh 2 boss guide we will explain how to beat Daidara Bocchi, the giant Yokai made of rock
The last title of the Team Ninja it really is a game very difficult and is able to create problems even for the most prepared gamers. The game's missions are littered with powerful enemies and treacherous traps, but the biggest obstacle for most players is the boss. For this reason we have decided to write one complete guide to bosses in Nioh 2 and in this episode we will explain how to beat Daidara Bocchi, the giant Yokai made of rock.
David against Goliath
Daidara Bocchi is an extremely powerful creature and only able to be awe-inspiring to the eye, but it's actually not that hard to break down. The recommended level to defeat this boss is the 95, but you should be able to get away with it on a bit lower level as well.
The strong point of this boss are definitely the damages, since his well-aimed blow is able to eliminate even the most powerful of samurai. Daidara Bocchi's attacks are almost exclusively physical, so it makes no sense to use armor and items that increase elemental defense. Instead i talismans that increase physical defense they will be very useful and can help you survive even a couple of hits.
Aiming for the hands - Nioh 2 boss guide: how to beat Daidara Bocchi
The only way to defeat this boss is destroy his hands. Each hand of Daidara Bocchi consists of five fingers and each of them can be hit separately. For this reason, using weapons with very large attacks, such as the scythe, will be very useful, since it will allow you to hit multiple fingers at a time. Once you have destroyed all five fingers of one hand, the boss will be stunned for a while, allowing you to climb onto his arm and hit his face.
A really great way to get rid of a good number of fingers quickly is to use i Yokai soul cores capable of multiple attacks. In particular the core of Yatsu-no-Kami it will be really cool, since, if you use it on one hand with all your fingers, the snake will get stuck and inflict some really insane damage on the monster. If done correctly, this technique could enable you to remove three fingers in an instant to your enemy.

Daidara Bocchi is capable of inflicting exorbitant damage with his shots and for this you will have to try to get hit as little as possible. With his hands he is able to throw rocks at it or create shock waves very dangerous. These attacks can be countered with a explosive counterattack, but doing so will be really difficult without the right guardian spirit, and it won't give you much of an advantage either. Whenever you see these attacks then the best move to do is to start running and avoid them.
In addition to these attacks, Daidara Bocchi is also capable of shoot dangerous lasers from the eyes. Most of these shots will be fairly easy to avoid, as you just need to keep to the sides of the arena, but when it starts to follow you with your eyes then you will have to be really careful. Once it has you in range it will hit you with an extremely strong and precise laser, capable of killing even the most armored warrior with one shot. Fortunately, to avoid it, it will be enough for you dodge as soon as his eyes flash.

Once you hit him in the face twice the boss will drag you into the Dark Realm and the fight will get complicated here. Now, before I can give the final blow to the Yokai, you will have to destroy both of his hands and with slowed Ki regeneration it will take even longer than usual. In addition, in this phase his attacks will be even faster and you could run the risk of being overwhelmed by the blows. For this reason, you must not be in a hurry to destroy his hands, but you must act calmly and avoid being defeated for no reason.
In addition to using the same attacks from the first phase more quickly, now Daidara Bocchi will also be able to crush you in his hands. This attack is very powerful, but thankfully it is really very slow and avoiding it is quite simple. To do this, it will be enough for you run as far as possible from him trying to stand exactly in front of the creature's face.
