How to Defeat Adam Smasher in Cyberpunk 2077
You encounter Adam Smasher at the end of either the mission Totalimmortal or the Belly of the Beast. Adam is an aggressively modified human who looks more mechanical than human. There is a nice twist in the story at this part, but we won’t provide spoilers. Have a variety of weapons on you before you come face to face with the boss. A revolver, Sniper Rifle, and an Assault Rifle will provide you the variance in fire power and ensure you don’t run out of bullets.
You should also be around level 18, which is not a great ask given you complete tasks and activities in the game. To defeat Adam Smasher in Cyberpunk 2077 start by taking out his right hand. When the fight starts, like other bosses Adam Smasher will also start with the melee attack. Aim at the arm and take it out. Without the arm, he will not use melee attack. Until, you have taken out the arm don’t get close to him or the right arm punch is very deadly and can almost end the fight if he lands one. Even when you are away, you will still have to escape the ranged attack of the boss from his smart gun with tracker bullets.
Once the right arm is neutralized, the boss will mostly resort to the launcher on the back. A good way to escape the bullets of the launcher is to be on the move. As the launcher targets your last location, moving at all times will help you escape the launcher attack.
Between each missile he sends your way there is a brief moment when you can use either the assault rifle or the sniper to lay dawn some fire power of your own. As he continues to take more damage and the health is substantially low, he will use his jetpack and move to high ground to send exclusive missiles at you. Just keep moving. Around the same time, he will also start spawning his minions. They are less powerful enemies and best handled with grenades as they may evade your bullets.
Deal with the minions as they come closer or in your way and keep targeting the boss. Always keep your distance from him and shoot the launcher on his back. Once the launcher is taken out, he’s defenceless. Now, focus your attention to the minions and take them out.
After you have taken out the spawned enemies and the boss’s launcher is destroyed, the fight is almost over. At this point, you can defeat Adam Smasher even with a melee attack.
