Gungrave’s return, Gungrave GORE, brings with it the over-the-top combat and boss fights the series is known for. While tips and tricks for Gungrave GORE will give you a big advantage when you first get into the game, the best preparation you can do for boss fights specifically is to learn their strengths and weaknesses. This guide tackles Brhatu, a colossal abomination of muscle and sinew that charges at you with sheer brute force.
How to beat Brhatu in Gungrave GORE
First, you should focus on flying kites around Brhatu arena and stay as far away from it as possible. Many of Brhatu’s attacks hit a huge area in front of or around them, so keeping your distance will save you from the massive damage they deal.
- Right punch, left punch, overhead slam: Brhatu will run towards you and begin a combination of three attacks: a right punch into the ground, followed by a left punch and finally raise both fists before hitting the ground. All three attacks hit in a big circle for Bhatu.
- Quick jump slam: Bhatu will jump a bit before landing quickly and slamming a large area around him.
- Jump into overhead slam: Brhatu jumps up and forward before landing quickly with both fists on the ground. It’s almost the same as the quick jump slam, but it covers more distance.
- Quick jab: Brhatu swipes at the player with a quick right punch. This is the only attack that does not hit an area.

Upon reaching half health, blue light will form in cracks in Brhatu’s body, causing it to glow. In this phase Brhatu will use all attacks from Phase One with more damage while getting a new attack called Jump slam. For this attack, Brhatu quickly jumps high into the air before slamming back down, dealing damage across a huge area. You will most likely have to dodge this attack rather than get out of the beam as it takes up most of the arena.
As mentioned earlier, staying as far away from Brhatu as possible will make this fight much easier, so move away from the boss while constantly firing your pistols. Good dodge timing is also required to dodge attacks when caught too close to Brhatu. Note that patience is a virtue with this boss due to his large health supply. Finally, don’t forget to use Fury mode whenever possible to increase your damage output and end the fight quickly.
