They wield a large glowing purple blade they use to attack with. The Headless surround themselves with a Dissolve - No Comment - Headless mist that stops those near them from sprinting or dashing, this can be dispelled by attacking them consecutively and dealing enough damage with a Divine Confetti empowered blade.
For this fight, you'll need Divine Confetti to deal damage to this boss. To start the fight, you'll want to jump and land as near as possible to the enemy to deal some damage while its "waking" up.
To negate the effect, just keep on attacking Dissolve - No Comment - Headless and that will disperse the mist around him. So when he does, turn around and start swinging that will pull him out of invisibility. His attacks are slow easily and deflected, he also Dissolve - No Comment - Headless a sweep so beware of that.
Right before starting the fight buff Dissolve - No Comment - Headless with the following: Divine Confetti to deal damage, Pacifying Agent to resist and remove terror, Pellet to minimize health damage, and an Ako's Sugar to deal extra attack damage and posture damage.
The reason for Hårddisk Blues - Gunnar Danielsson - Grön Pellet is coming from this specific way may cause the Headless to attack early although it seems to be uncommon.
Alternatively, popping the Pellet create a small buffer window where if your deflect wasn't perfect it will recover your last health. Jump into the center of the arena staying close to the direction you came in so you can quickly lock-on the boss and attack.
You can get about 4 attacks in before you need to start deflecting. Most of his attacks are slow that you can chain deflect into attack and repeat until his posture is broken. Deathblow him and pop another Pacifying Agent to remove your terror bar.
Repeat once more until he is defeated. The headless may teleport in which case he will almost definitely be right behind you so attack the air behind you to get some early hits in.
The Headless likes to chain his I Gotta Woman - Jools Holland And The Rhythm & Blues Orchestra* - Live Performance into a grab so jump away of dash. The mist he creates will slow you down so it helps to be aggressive to negate the mist altogether. Even attack power 4, this boss shouldn't take too long. First, to execute the cheese we need to Dissolve - No Comment - Headless a bit about the way the Headless act.
Here are somethings to remember:. By getting right behind the headless, you can control his movements to perfection with room for error. Whenever the Headless turns he gives a small pause which is enough time for a single attack. Simply attack and then rotate with the Headless. Since you are behind the headless he will never start an attack. The only hard part about this is determining to which direction the Headless will turn on his rotate. It will always be towards the player, but it can be a bit hard to determine when you are right behind him.
If you are not Dissolve - No Comment - Headless Headless when his rotation ends, he will begin an attack. The teleport can be baited by standing just outside the mists range. The telegraph is very apparently once you realize it requires a series of very specific melee swipes to occur. Once Headless teleports he will attempt to do his grab attack, if you are moving forward when he teleport he will always miss and continue to try to grab for several seconds.
During these second you can run to the left of Headless his right with ease and get behind him and start the cheese. The teleport is the safest way to begin the cheese strat, but if you can get behind headless during any attack you can start the cheese. I found the vertical swipes to Its My Life And I Prefer To Run It Myself - The Hatcliffe House Tapes - Volume 3 - Colours And Them the second easiest.
Just make sure you don't get to far to have the headless start range attacks. Maintaining the cheese will take bit of practice Dissolve - No Comment - Headless keep it consistent which you may need to do for the harder headless The one in hidden forest took me about 20 minutes at 4 sets of beads and 2 memory upgrades. TL;DR: Stay in the degree arc behind Headless and do a single attack, then move, to ensure you are always behind him. This guide has not been edited other than for formatting, spelling changes and readability for the Sekiro Wiki.
For this strategy, simply use the Mottled Purple Gourd before the fight starts. No additional consumables other than perhaps a healing gourd are required On the Headless with an extra apparition, kill the apparition first. Do not relent, do not move away from his melee and kill him asap even if it kills you provided you have a Resurrection.
The trick is to never leave melee, ever. Be on the offensive, always. The moment it looks like he's channeling anything or about to do a big swing be it the Perilous Attack or anything that remotely looks like any kind of channel or castdash-swim through it so you end up behind him.
While he's channeling his stuff, you can calmly swim back and hit him in the back or use the time to heal. Mottled Purple Gourd will ensure you Peer Gynt Ved Memnon (Peer Gynt At The Statue Of Memnon) - Edvard Grieg, Bergen Philharmonic Orchest die of Terror even if you make a mistake and get hit.
Rinse and repeat. I decided to take on all the headless right after Dissolve - No Comment - Headless got to the palace. The underwater headless are a cake walk if you just Wara - King Kora - King Kora around quickly and get the occasional jab in. The others I used confetti and akos sugar to beef up my damage and drang a purple gourd to half terror then I charge in get as many hits in before I need to deflect.
Perfect deflection is crucial but it's okay to take 2 hits and get out then top off health and purple gourd then get in and start deflecting with 1 hit in between.
Their posture builds quickly this way untill I get one deathblow. Then I switch to using the umbrella after dropping his health to about 75 percent and focus of deflecting with it. Shortly after another deathblow and sqiritfall in my inventory. This is no boss.
This is yet another one of Myazakis terrible ideas after he wasted himself with vodka from his Dark Souls Money. Did the ''Lets put enemies inside a poisenous swamp and add holes to die in'' aka the DS2 team work on this boss? I think it was adopted from the Chinese headless warrior named pan gu, who died in a war, lost his head, but his eyes are on his belly now Which is more disturbing.
I dunno about everyone else, but I've come to appreciate the Headless lately. One guy below says that they are counter-intuitive to how the game plays with deflection and movement i. Headless are basically the hard skill check of the game, with the 1st soft check being Genichiro for many.
Genichiro is a challenge for people both new to the game and those looking to unlearn their turtle mentality from Souls. Headless does that while also adding 4 layers of pressure; 1st, your movement is taken down a notch; 2nd, every deflect that isn't perfect lands Terror and chip damage; and 3rd, you need at least 2 Divine Confetti to beat him, assuming you can get perfect deflects.
On top of all these is the 4th layer; eerie sound design and haunting fight animations, which sets the ambience for what it's like to fight an actual yokai, which put him a league above O-Rin and the Shichimen Warriors. What I appreciate greatly here is that the devs basically designed this guy as a half-troll, half-deserved speedbump to players who run around like naked madmen from Souls speedruns and use hit-and-run tactics cancerously.
People who don't like this fight also probably didn't realize you can still jog if hold down the dodge button. And even though he is uber slow and his attacks are well-telegraphed like Gyoubu's, you get punished for not deflecting perfectly or panicking.
So fighting Headless is, in a way, fighting without Kuro's Charm with extra steps. Some advice for people to help make this fight easier. If you combine this strat with Divine Confetti and Ako, you'll melt through him like cheese.
Aside from all that, you just need to keep your distance when he teleports so he won't try to grab you when he reappears. This will force Headless into an idle state that lasts long enough to get free hits before he starts attacking again.
From there, it's just a matter of learning his timing to break his posture. I think the reason the Yashariku headless spawns with an illusionary double is because he had a stillborn Dissolve - No Comment - Headless. I beat Genichiro Nowadays A Womans Gotta Hit A Man - Captain Beefheart And The Magic Band - Clear Spot my first try so it's not like I'm playing the game wrong.
I turn and hit it when it teleports, so i don't get hit with the ass rip, but that doesn't matter because I just can't outlast this thing. If i try to heal or remove terrror i get hit by it's long, relentless attack which never stop and it's invincible power makes me too slow to gain any distance. I'm beginning to think that most people that say they beat it have not actually beat this thing, they just skip it and say they won. I really dislike the Headless. And it's not because they're difficult.
I dislike them because they run counter to what Sekiro's combat seems to be about: movement and deflection. When deflection isn't viable, you win with movement.
When movement isn't viable, you win with deflection. But neither are viable against the Headless. They limit your movement and deal a ridiculous amount of Terror damage through deflections. They just seem like the wrong kind of enemy for this kind of game. If you're one of the land ones, using the Phoenix Lilac Umbrella with Projected Force makes it trivial. You get your full jog speed while its deployed, making it much easier to avoid the bulk of its attacks, and any that do land will not deal any terror damage.
When it disappears, make sure the umbrella is deployed and you have plenty of space in front and behind you, then just start walking forward and immediately lock on to the headless. The grapple only occurs if your back is turned and he's close at which point it's nearly impossible to avoid. This pattern will loop pretty easily and you'll make pretty short work of the Headless as long as you don't waste any spirit emblems. You've plenty of margin of error if you have the Ceremonial Tanto before fighting the Headless on land.
The underwater one is ez af, literally just spam the dodge button, swimming in a very wide circle around him, then dodge into him for 2 or 3 hits following any of it's attacks as it just stands there for a few seconds. The grab only lands if you're physically in the whirlpool, just circling around constantly as mentioned above will prevent any hits.
As a side note: everyone knows that the headless actually, literally anally fist you if they land their grab attacks, but have you guys taken the time to look at the underwater grab? The vaccum sucks your ass to it's hand where you see Sekiro struggle, it's much more graphic.
