How to Beat Oda Boss in Cyberpunk 2077

In the mission Play It Safe, after you take care of the netrunner, the boss fight will start without any initiation. Unlike some other boss fights there is no dialogue and you do not have the option to skip the fight. Sandayu Oda is the toughest boss so far, if not in the entire game. He has a variety of attacks and starts the fight with melee attack. Both his hands are armed with lethal melee weapon.

One of the simplest way to beat Oda is destroy his mask. But, it’s easier said than done. In order to be successful in your attempt, you will have to avoid the entire boss fight and complete the quest in Stealth mode. You can escape the attention of Oda using quickhack like Reboot Optics or use the cameras. Once you have successfully gone out of Oda’s sight, he will deploy Optical Camo and start searching for you. That’s the time when you sneak up to him and land a lethal blow. You will have to repeat the process of disappearing and sneaking up behind him a second time before the Oni mask is broken. Once the mask breaks, deploy smart weapons and defeat him.  

However, if you like things the old fashioned way with brute force, you can always wait for the fight to start after taking out the netrunner and then use force. To beat Oda in Cyberpunk 2077 on a one-one fight, you will have to do a lot of dodging and attacking. Have a variety of weapons on you such as a revolver, a sniper, and a fully automatic. Head shots with the revolver do quite a bit of damage. When you attack Oda, you would always want to take head shots so the mask breaks sooner. During the fight, ensure that you are not pinned to a corner or the boss will punish you severally. He does an attack where he jumps in the air and heads your way to perform a melee attack. Ensure that you dodge the attack as it can do a significant damage compared to the normal melee attack.

After some time into the fight, the boss will introduce a new attack which are homing bullets. He will switch between the homing bullets and the melee attacks. Take cover when he uses the homing bullets. When you take cover, he will reach higher places to target the bullets at you. Between the homing bullets, there is a small window of a few seconds when you can use the sniper and land a head shot, so use the opening. Repeat the same process for some time, when he shoots take cover and when the opportunity presents, take a shot of your own with the sniper.

When he has taken enough damage, he will use Stealth Cloak to disappear. While you are unable to see him, you will notice his health returning. Go look for him in the construction huts. Even when he’s disappeared, you will see the blue outline of his cloak. Be quick in finding him and start shooting him.

During the fight, if your health runs low, use health items to restore the health. As long as your health is fine and you don’t go out of ammo, you will be able to win the fight with Oda in Cyberpunk 2077. Stock all the items required for the fight before it begins. Items dropped after beating Oda are Jinchu-Mari, Arasaka Polycarbonate-Lacde Bulletproof Aramid Vest, Kogana No Yume Titanium BD Wreath, and Heat-Resistant Military Boots.

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.
