Metroidvanias can be head scratchers, and KUNAI is no different. This guide will go through how to most effectively defeat The Deprecator.
The Deprecator has a few different attacks, with each giving you obvious tells before they act. The first is the charge attack, where it will crouch and build up power before it quickly dashes toward you. To avoid this, you can either simply jump over it, but you’ll need to be mindful of it returning back to the right side of the screen.
Another way of dodging this attack is to grapple onto the ceiling, but you’ll need to make sure that you are close to the ceiling, so perhaps double jump before you release your Kunai. The picture below had me avoiding being attacked, but that was without a double jump, so I’d still recommend double jumping to better avoid being hit.
Another attack that The Deprecator has at its arsenal is sending a barrage of bullets at you. This is borderline impossible to dodge, but you don’t have to; simply face The Deprecator and wildly slash away with your Katana, hitting the bullets back at it (unfortunately, it doesn’t damage it).
When The Deprecator shoots missiles at you, this is your opportunity. Concentrate on hitting the missiles back at it with your katana, making it stop dead in its tracks and opening up. You can hit more missiles back at it if it has already shot some after being hit and you can run up to it and slice away to whittle down its health.
These are all of the tactics to defeating The Deprecator, so stay vigilant, follow those instructions and you’ll be done in no time!
