Well, first an easy way to avoid getting hit is to make sure the circle in the middle will be between you and Nefarious, so when he does that blue shadow thing, he won't be able to hit you, but when he throws the grenade thing, be sure to jump up out of the way. And when he uses the grenade, try hitting him with the wrench directly after each time you jump, so as not to waste ammo. After you beat him just use weapons you won't need later to kill the enemies in your way on the way to fighting Nefarious again. When you've got to the next Nefarious fight, follow the same strategy with the grenades he uses, but be sure to use your long jump to avoid being hit by his shadow thing. When he jumps in the air to do his laser thing, just focus on getting out of the way of the beam. If you get a chance, you can try to shoot him with the flux rifle, or the Annihilator. Do your best not to run out of ammo, so use your weapons wisely. It may take a while, but you can eventually beat him by following this strategy. Then you have to fight the biobliterator, but it's really easy. Just keep shooting at it in the hovership.

Then you're done!

I guess one way would be to just keep running, have that protection orb around you and use the RY3NO the wholle time, keep on movingg, and find coverr.

President Of Jelly Beans was right but I Have something to add. I recommended strafing (walking sideways) while hitting him, since it is hard to hit him while rotating all the time. Another thing I want to add is when you reach the robot part in the middle, try to avoid them using the charge boots. I have used this technique and it is successful. See ya later!

You can use only the disc blade and thosemini turet things then when you beat him theire just use the rift riper and fly under his bublle hill fly away then beat all the other guys then just use the flux rifle,decimator,and the volcano gun

Get your miniturret to level 5 and get the agents of doom to level five because the agents of dread are extremely powerful and if you have the p.d.a. Then you can buy ammo for the agents of dread. Another trick is to level up your flux rifle, n60 storm, and your annialator to shoot but don't zoom in with the sniper because that leaves you open for attack. Also try to get the infernux armor. It costs a million bolts but it's worth it.

this is true, but the infernux armor is not available until after you beat nefarious for the first time!

You can buy the infernux armor before completing the game

Utilize tesla barrier level 5 and n60 storm lv 8 only.
If you are run out odf ammo buy on pda.
Make sure you have some bolts to pda because that n60 don't run out of ammo that causes too damage

Use plasma coil while dodging his attacks then in-between the fight charge boots past the robots and into ammo crates then use plasma coil bouncer flux rifle agents of doom and miniturrets if that doesnt work use hurricane and annihilator

For the start, use the Annihilator rapidly while strafing (move left and right) and you might get to phase 2.If you haven't beaten him at the start yet,use either Agents of Dread, or use Nitro Eruptor, or even both. Doing that you might get a quick start. But make sure you have the Annihilator, or it might possibly take longer. Now after that, a cutscene will develop, which shows you have to chase Nefarious across a plot of rocky land. Now first, pull out your Flux Rifle, and Agents of Dread. If you have only the Agents of Doom, you may have 0 hope. But bring out Agents of Dread and just leap across the field of rock and Planet Daxx robots until you make it to the bridge. Don't worry about any of the enormous robots. Just focus on getting half-way there, because your ol' buddies: The Rangers, will be helping you to the end of the bridge. But once you make it to the end of the bridge, just pull out your annihilator, Agents of Dread and Nitro Eruptor and smack em' dead. Cha-ching!

The first bit, never stop moving, you can strafe or jump as long as you are never still, for the beginning I used really crap weapons like the tempest or the hurricane or shock cannon, it's slow but saves all your good weapons later, when he runs off just avoid the enemies with the rocket boosters and the last bit, once again never stop moving and just use up all your good weapons untl he dies

I think that two very good weapons against Nefarious is the bouncer and that rpg thing, you do better also if you have the shield thing. Both the bouncer and the shield is buyed from slim cognito at aquatos.
(sry but could not remember the name of all the weapons) :S

Easy to beat him t first run while deploying agents of doom/dread and throw 7 of your turrent V5 and use the plasma shocker thing and shoot him slower I recommend using V3-5 then fight all the robots in there and dodging nefarious beam if you close to him use the energy boots to go to the right side if you look at map
And I you see him in front with your team you got him if you don't you missed one. Use the multi disc blade gun V5 to help it will have a random green circle to helpand go back get under nefarious and he gets out of the orb and JUMP back to you're team since he killed the bridge that connects and hide under the knocken trash can and shoot all you're disc blade , flux and if he is very weak now get out you're gun you want to lv. Up and kill him with it he gives ton of weapon exp
