El Dragon Jr Guide
When El Dragon Jr appears from out of the waterfall he will first do a few poses. This is your chance to strike first. El Dargon Jr will run towards you and is pretty aggressive about it. He will perform a clap attack or jump in the air to land on top of you. Keep your distance as El Dragon Jr’s main attacks are close combat. He does have shock attacks and the fight starts in the water so beware of that. It’s possible that a few bandits, from further down the map, will join the fight.
You can also progress through the map a bit and go to the next save station. Because from there the walk to farm El Dragon Jr is a bit shorter but you can also farm Heckle/Hyde from that location.
- TIP: Strike First.
- STRATEGY: Keep your distance.
- WEAKNESS: Incendiary.
- CRIT SPOT: Headshots.
