Ahead of launch, Bandai Namco’s gone through tactics people can employ when facing some of Scarlet Nexus’ enemies. The latest video looks at a kind of Other called Barrista Santa. While it has a whimsical, jolly name, the Scarlet Nexus footage shows how to handle a potentially fierce opponent.
This Scarlet Nexus video involves a team that consists of Kasane Randall, Arashi Spring, and Shiden Ritter. The three are exploring a building when they come across a level 36 Barrista Santa. This kind of Other essentially covered itself in armor, with a shell you have to break to deal damage to it. It also uses its tentacles to grab things and throw them at you. Bandai Namco’s tip noted to use Clairvoyance, a power Tsugumi has, to see where thrown items might go. Kasane also borrows Shiden’s electrokinesis to damage it.
Here’s the Scarlet Nexus Barrista Santa footage.
『Psionic Survival Tip』
Barrista Santa uses its tentacles to throw objects and attack, proceed with caution.
???? Use Clairvoyance to avoid projectiles
???? Then use Psychokinesis to throw the objects back and break its shell.
