How To Beat The Invading Executioner Code Vein Boss
Crush attacks are the most effective against this boss. Slash is the second best and you should not use Pierce if you are interested in taking out this boss efficiently. In the first phase of the boss fight, the boss is going to use a Water AoE attack. She will cast a column of water under you. You can counter this move by dodging forward or back.
The boss can also use the 3-hit spin combination. At times this move is limited to 2 hits so you have to keep your eyes open for the 3rd attack. You can easily dodge backwards and wait for the attack to finish. You can dodge into the second attack if you want to gain focus. For the 3rd attack, you can dodge again or run out of range of the attack. Note that the 3rd attack is slower so you will need to time your dodge accordingly.
The boss also has an overhead charged attack. She will perform this attack from above from a medium range. Dodge left or right. You can use side-step to punish the boss instantly. Lance stomp is another move that this Code Vein boss uses. Dodge left or right. You can use side-step to punish the boss instantly.
The last attack is the stomp attack. She will slam her foot into the ground in front of her. You can dodge in any direction to avoid getting damaged. You can use side-step to punish the boss instantly. Once you have done considerable damage the second stage of the boss fight is going to start.
The Code Vein Invading Executioner Boss is going to get a bit more aggressive now and is going to use some new attacks. She can use a slide attack. She will get on her lance and charge at you. She can do this twice, back to back. To avoid this attack, you need to wait until she is near you and dodge to the left or right. Another option is rolling through her. You should wait and see if she goes for the second hit. If she does then you can roll backwards in order to avoid the second hit.
Next, the boss can combine the lance stomp attack with a spin. You can dodge backwards in order to avoid damage. If at close range, you can sidestep the lance and dodge the spin. This will get you right next to her and allow you to land a few hits. She can do this move backwards as well. You can dodge the move backwards in the same way.
Spinning Water Attack is the last trick that this boss has. She will put her lance into the ground and start spinning around. She will also shoot water projectiles. If you get hit by the projectiles then you will be slowed. To avoid getting hit you should dodge backwards two times for the lance part. Wait for the projectiles to come near. When they are near, you can dodge left or right. If you are far enough, the projectiles are not going to reach you.
