How to kill Jackal?

(Volt fighting against Jackal)


The Jackal will come at you with a huge arsenal from firing rockets or a Gatling gun at you to using abilities such as a shockwave that knocks you down or a volley of plasma grenades.


An easy way to defeat the Jackal will be to hide behind a pillar and wait for the opportune moment where the pillar is the only thing between the two of you.

Take a glimpse from whichever side one of his limbs can be shot while you are protected by the pillar and take shots at it.


Once enough damage has been dealt to the limb the Jackal will fall to the ground and be vulnerable, shooting at it, mainly its head will deal damage and this process is to be repeated until it is finally killed.
