Isn't that a first, zombies on motorcycles!? This video deals with these fast little annoyances.

Lock and load!  You'll be chased by numerous Majini on motorcycles, and a few trucks every now and then.  Don't continuously fire with the gatling gun or it will overheat.  Instead, shoot for like five seconds (and make sure that you hit your targets, mind you!), then keep your finger off the trigger for a second.

A great way to measure the level of overheat is by checking the circle in which the gatling gun is displayed.  As you're firing, the circle will fill with a red color.  If the circle becomes completely red, your gun will overheat and you'll need to wait until the circle is depleted, which costs you unnecessary time, and can cause dangerous situations as well.  In short, keep an eye on that circle and try not to overheat your gatling gun!

The trucks can be quite annoying, if only because the  gatling gun won't always be able to turn all the way to a truck that is driving very close by the jeep. Nonetheless you should still be able to hit the majority of the Majini.  The chase is fairly straightforward, and you'll  get to a road block after about 3/4th down the chase. Aim for the explosive barrels, then focus on the truck.  When it's out of the way, survive only a little longer.

When a truck is on fire, don't blow it up when it's driving right beside you!

After a few more scenes, another boss appears!  Get on your boots, because this one's another tough cookie to crumble.


Ndesu is one tough goliath, but has he ever heard of David.. err Chris and Sheva? This video shows how to defeat this boss giant.

Majini's need love too:
Immediately initiate fire and aim for his head.  An important piece of info for winning this fight is that you're not just fighting Ndesu.  You're not?  No, there are also three Majini with bowguns in the background, and these can be just as dangerous.  Well, almost as dangerous.  They might not be there during the first few seconds of the fight, but two Majini's are on the right side, one on ground level, the other on the platform above the other.  They are close to an explosive barrel, so you can use that to kill them, but they will keep respawning - so that's only a one time help.  The other Majini is on your right side, on a building.  In order to maintain a healthy .. health bar, it is essential to take a second every now and then to kill these Majini's.  Only do so when Ndesu doesn't require your immediate attention, and he usually does.

Gatling Gun & Overheating:
As with previous instances where you could use gatling guns, this one can also overheat.  Keep track of the circle in which the gatling gun is displayed.  When you hold the trigger, the cicle will fill up with a red color.  When the circle is completely filled, the gatling gun will be overheated and the circle needs to be empty again - resulting in a nasty waiting time.  Try to avoid this by all means.

Phase 1:
Ndesu will approach the jeep and try to punch you.  These punches can be dodged, which you should - at all costs - try to do as best as possible.  He'll also try to smack you with both his hands, or deliver a blow with his feet.  In the last two cases, fire at his head until he ceases the attack (but still, don't try to overheat your gatling gun).

He'll pull back soon enough and grab huge boulders and smack these at you.  Aim for any explosive barrels that he's standing close to and blow them up to deal with this threat.  Soon, when there are no more barrels left you'll need to crack the rocks with your gatling gun, so fire at the boulders only from the moment he grabs them.  Ndesu will also attempt to attack you by delivering a tremendous punch to the ground.  You can dodge this attack as well.

As you keep up the pace, parasites will crawl out of his body.  At first there will be two parasites at a time - one in his chest, the other on his arm - but soon enough as much as four parasites pop out.  These are his weak spots, so kill them one at a time.  If you've been doing things correctly - and I'm assuming you have if you're reading this - then a larger parasite will crawl out of his back.  That's your main chance: You need to destroy that sucker to win this fight.  The smaller parasites will respawn, so repeat the cycle until the larger parasite shows itself again.

Phase 2:
The only difference here is that Ndesu will pull out the two (well, one at a time that is) electricity poles and tries to hit you with them.  These can be dodged in a similar fashion how you dodged his punches.  If you shoot the main parasite with three solid bursts whenever it pops out, then that should do Ndesu in (measured on Veteran mode).
