I hear the boss fights tend to force you into just gunplay battles and nothing else matters. I hope they fix that so that you can use stealth tactics against them as well. Would be nice if the Monday thing is a patch to address issues like this.

Straightforward gunplay is perhaps the most obvious way, the easiest way, but it's not the only way. (Highlight spoilers:)

If you stun the first boss, you can sneak around him and he'll keep attacking the last place he saw you. Then you can toss explosive barrels at him with impunity. Cloaking helps a lot if you don't have a bunch of concussion or EMP grenades.

The second boss can KILL HERSELF if you lure her to environmental hazards that she triggers with her explosive attack. You need to be very careful if you don't have the electricity immunity, though.

I haven't tried it yet, but people say you can defeat the third boss with repeated takedown attempts, which he is vulnerable to when he's vaulting over the glass partitions. Being sneaky helps to catch him offguard, though I imagine stuns would help, too. Also, some have carried a hacked turret up the elevator and used that to kill him.


I think the main reason people complain about the bosses is that they're trickier for a stealth-oriented character, which most people are playing as. Then the guy from RPS is upset that he can't be nonlethal with the bosses... Well, guess what, they're tougher than the average nameless guard, and it's a core part of the storyline that Jensen hates them with a passion and wants them dead!
