Ghostrunner is out now and at the time of writing, there are a couple of bosses that you need to beat in order to progress the game. In this Ghostrunner guide, we are going to go over how you can beat The Gatekeeper Tom.
How To Beat The Gatekeeper Tom In Ghostrunner
The Gatekeeper Tom has three phases. Each section is different and has a couple of mechanics that you need to know about. The following is what you need to know about beating Tom.
Phase One: The One With The Lasers
In this phase, there are plenty of lasers. They will be moving continuously and there is no safe area to stand. There are only a few checkpoints. Here the hooks that you can pull yourself towards have a lot of range. If you dash upwards then you might be able to get past a couple of rotations around the tower.
It is worth mentioning that the laser pattern remains the same even if you die. Learn what combination of actions can get you the furthest. This will make you rely on muscle memory.
Phase Two: The Pulse
In this phase, you are going to crash to the bottom and have to dodge a pulse wave that can kill you instantly. The wave only affects the outer wall so if you can find a place to stand then you are safe for a while. The lasers are going to come back so you will not have a lot of breathing room.
You will have numerous checkpoints here. You need to find the rhythm of the pulse and time your wall runs accordingly to turn them into wall jumps.
Phase Three: All The Way Down
In this phase, the tower is crashed all the way down and you need to make your way to the remaining weak points. You can run towards the spinning lasers and duck. Then jump through them to dodge the wave that follows.
Timing is going to be key here and if you time your moves right then you will be able to get to both of the weak points.
