It’s time to talk about another boss in the amazingly addictive Enter the Gungeon and this time I’m here to share with you a guide on how to beat The Gorgun. She is a boss you will meet in Chapter 2 or Level 2, whatever you want to call it and honestly she is one of my least favorite bosses on that level. I actually hate her and whenever the boss fight starts, I don’t want to see here. But somehow it’s her that I keep getting, which is a good thing for today’s article since I know how to destroy her and get a perfect run as well. If you read on, you will do to.
So no matter if you love her (why would you?) or hate her, you have to do your best to avoid her attacks and take her out as soon as possible. You will need a decent high damage and at least mid range weapon since you won’t get too close to her because of the trail of poison she leaves behind, but apart from that, you can do it without using your blanks. So let’s get this started!
How to beat The Gorgun in Enter the Gungeon
Keep the distance and run away from the wave she throws at you (otherwise you won’t be able to shoot for a while if you are touched) – this is really easy because you should keep the distance anyway!
When she’s shooting the spiral: keep the distance and try to find the gap, it’s usually in a vertical manner and it’s relatively easy to keep avoiding the entire wave of shots if you start on the right foot.
When shooting randomly – just keep the distance and dodge all incoming bullets. Try not to be near a wall because that makes it a bit more difficult – but usually just keeping the distance is enough to get past this as well which is in my opinion her most dangerous attack.
Finally, don’t forget not to step in the green goo that she leaves behind after she goes swimming: if you’re on it, just get away ASAP and you won’t be affected. Just don’t spend too much time there if you want to survive, OK?
This is it! Now you know all the tricks you have to know to defeat her – and trust me when I’m saying that practice makes perfect in her case. I really hate this boss, but I kept getting her during my runs and became a bit of an expert and now, following the tips above, I almost always get perfect wins against her. Which is not bad – and you can get there as well.
