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 Successor of the Ribcage
- Location: Cathedral of the Sacred Blood.
Akin to many deities from mythology, this is a large white wolf with several humanoid limbs, a golden headpiece, and markings that allude to something significant. This boss is not optional.
This boss makes use of lightning and dodging it can be a real challenge. First and foremost, once the battle begins you should run to the columns on the side and use them as cover.
The creature will resort to calling forth lightning which will strike down across the entire area. You can dodge them if you time it properly.
The boss does not move as much but it does teleport sporadically (lock on to it to know where exactly it is) so whenever you get the opportunity, run up to it and attack, running to the back of the room or to the columns when it begins to attack.
In phase 2, you follow the same strategy even though the creature’s attacks become far more aggressive. Every time it teleports it creates a barrier which must be destroyed before it can be attacked.
Stay as close to the creature as possible, attempting to get to its backside to avoid getting hit by any of its limbs. If you strafe left and right, you can dodge the lightning bolts without having to roll.
It will also sporadically create a blood AoE attack that hits you from underneath, be mindful of this and dodge to the side when you see blood appearing beneath you. Stay close to it as much as possible and you’ll eventually kill it.
