Keep scrolling and we will tell you everything about how to beat the Pan Guardian in Chronos: Before the Ashes.

How to Beat the Pan Guardian in Chronos: Before the Ashes

To beat Pan Guardian, your go-to weapons are the Krell Hammer and Shield. You must have these gear equipped when you enter into a fight with the boss. Even though Pan Guardian is not the fastest boss in the game, his huge size means he can sneak in some quick attacks.

You don’t have to find the boss, when you enter the area, Pan Guardian will spawn and the fight will start. In my experience, the attack you need to watch out for comes from the bottom half of the giant. Pan Guardian will swing his bottom half. Besides that, other attacks include shockwave.’

Usually the shockwave attack is followed by the swing attack. The shockwave can stop you in your way for a while and this creates the perfect opportunity for the swing attack. Try to dodge this attack if possible and always keep your shield up.

As Pan Guardian is a giant, his movement his slow and sight hindered behind him. So, the perfect spot to lay down the hammer on him is from the back, but watch out for the swing attack. Keep the shield up as you try to get around him. He has the ability to swing his body, but the behind is still his most vulnerable spot.

Keep his attacks in mind and attack him, eventually you would have made enough damage for him to drop down on the ground. When he’s on his knees, that’s the right time to give him all you got. You can do a lot of damage during this time.

Pan Guardian drops down every time a life bar falls, so if you keep at it you may reduce the life bar before the boss gets up again.

When he rises up again, he will have a new attack with a flare of electricity. When that happens, not only will his attacks deal more damage, but he’ll become quicker too. At this point, you need additional speed to escape the attacks and would have to give up the shield that’s slowing you down. Drop down the shield and maintain your distance. Between each rush of attack, Pan Guardian will stop for a while, that’s your opportunity to charge at him. Attack him at that moment and get back away. Keep repeating the process and eventually you will beat the Pan Guardian in Chronos: Before the Ashes.

He is caught in a loop between writing about games and playing them. It's a vicious cycle. Although he's biased towards PC, you can occasionally find him on the PS5. He does not own an Xbox Consoles but plans on getting one soon.
