I Want My Prize: A Twisted Metal PS3 Boss Guide

Posted on Saturday, February 18 @ 10:17:24 Eastern by Jonathan_Leack
Twisted Metal's campaign is a surprising animal. While many people expect something identical to what previous installments have included, the game foregoes the style of throwing a dozen free-for-all encounters at you in order to deliver something more focused and diverse. The best part about it is that there are three memorable boss battles, each of which require an almost un-humanlike level of speed and precision. I've seen a lot of people frustrated over the encounters, so I said to heck with that, let's do the world's first boss guide.

Before we get started, please note that while normal difficulty grants you a checkpoint at the beginning of each phase, hard and twisted difficulties don't. As such, if you plan to beat the game on twisted difficulty because you want to unlock Warthog, be aware that you'll have to do each of the 10+-minute encounters almost flawlessly. It's a lot to stomach, so install some padded walls in your gaming room before you start throwing your controller.

(Note: There are significant, game-breaking *SPOILERS* below. Proceed with the caution of Indiana Jones.)



 

Brothers Grimm

The first time you see the Grimm Brothers show up on your screen, chances are your jaw will drop. In this battle you're pitted against two humongous monster trucks who want nothing less than to smash you into oblivion. You're forced to use Roadkill for this encounter, so a little bit of practice with either him or Death Warrant (who is nearly identical) will go a long way. He has two specials, one which fires an automatic chain gun and another which is charge-based and has three stages. Practice with shooting the blood missile before the fight so you'll be able to take advantage of your specials as much as possible.

Phase 1
The Grimm Brothers thrive on getting in close and smashing you. Drive around and pick-up some weapons around the level and then fire your weapon when you're at a safe distance. The key to getting through this phase is learning how to turn away from the vehicles after initiating an attack. Make sure you're aware of where both enemies are at all times so you don't accidently turn around, stop, and then get crushed. The first phase ends when you destroy either vehicle, so focus on one and don't bother attacking the other. 

Phase 2
Now you're going to need to do what might sound like the worst thing possible: get under the remaining monster truck. This phase operates like Nuke mode if you're familiar with it, where you need to stay within a designated spot to charge up a meter. The spot just so happens to be directly under the boss's truck, so approach from behind and make sure you line-up between the back wheels before pushing in.

While underneath, try to stay parallel with the truck so you don't slide sideways and put yourself in the path of the back wheels. Once you've spent sufficient time underneath the vehicle, your gunner will automatically jump to the vehicle and begin planting C4.

As your gunner begins charging the C4, your job is to run away from the truck and survive. Drive around the map and don't be afraid to use turbos to increase the gap. It takes about a minute for the C4 to be planted, so be patient. Once it is planted, you're in charge of detonating the bomb, so hit your attack button and watch the fireworks.

Phase 3
Okay, now the boss is ticked off, and you're essentially back in phase 1 but with only one vehicle to destroy. The boss will have a new shockwave attack which knocks you in the air, but it can be avoided by a timely jump (L1 + R1). Watch out for freeze missiles and unload everything you have on him. If you're low on health, memorize where the two health packs spawn on the map and rotate between them. If you run into a bad situation, head toward the middle of the city where all of the buildings are and use the tight corners to your advantage.
