Code Vein How to Beat Blade Bearer and Cannoneer

Code Vein features many interesting and unique bosses, all of which must be beaten in order to progress the story. All of these are lost, powerful but malicious, and feature a set of moves that are unique to them. With large health bars, memorable designs, and even fascinating lore surrounding them, these bosses are one of the many highlights of Code Vein.

Bosses in Code Vein do not respawn after being beaten, however, you are likely to encounter them again when exploring dungeons, so be prepared for the possibility of facing them again and again.

How to Beat Blade Bearer and Cannoneer

Location: Depths – Town of Sacrifice. You need to collect all the keys before being given access to this area.

  • Duel bosses who are the exact opposite of one another. One is a nubile and deft woman with ice powers, the other a large, burly man with fire capabilities, however, the two come together to form a terrifying duo that will challenge you to the extreme.
  • The fight is not optional! Starting with the Blade Bearer, she will use a frost spear and charge at you. Do not preemptively dodge, wait for her to charge and dodge when she does so.
  • She will most likely follow up with a 3-hit-combo; dodge to the left or roll to the back but never dodge to the right. Punish her after the 3rd attack.
  • She may plant her weapon into the ground and create ice pillars that will pop up in random parts of the area; dodge toward her to close the gap and attack.
  • She will then create a wall of icy spikes which you can avoid by dodging towards her, attacking her when she’s open. At this point, she’ll shift to phase 2 where she’ll become far more aggressive.
  • Her attacks are all the same but far fiercer, follow the strategy from above.
  • Cannoneer is much simpler in comparison. When near him, he will conjure up flame or slam into you to push you back; dodge appropriately.
  • He will also call forth fire when you’re at a distance, the flames will erupt from the ground so strafe away when you see flames appear beneath you.
  • He may also resort to his flamethrower, trying to burn you alive; you can use the pillars as cover but this will be difficult with the Blade Bearer around.
  • It’s recommended to focus on one boss at a time; take out Blade Bearer or Cannoneer first and then focus on the other. Have lots of healing items with you.
  • You receive x2 MJ109, x2 Queen’s Steel, Ice Blood and Burning Disaster for defeating the Blade Bearer and Cannoneer.
