  • Another attack which Goliath uses is its sandwich attack. It tries to trap you between its buzzsaws. Dodge this attack.
  • Another attack which it uses is it raises both or one of its arms and hits you with it. This one is a simple attack to dodge. Keep this strategy of dodging and attacking till you see 9S come in.


  • After this, Goliath gets new attacks. When the boss disappears, run towards the camera to avoid damage.
  • It will attack with a smash attack which you can dodge only by jumping in the air.
