Lies of P Boss Guide: How to beat Champion Victor

Lies of P Boss Guide: How to Beat Champion Victor

Lies of P is the latest Souls-like game, complete with some excellent levels and a unique puppet aesthetic. The bosses can be challenging and really test your skills to the maximum as well. Fret not though, our boss guides can help you get through even the toughest challenges that Lies of P throws at you.

Champion Victor is a compulsory boss found in the Grand Exhibition area. Compared to the previous boss, this one isn’t actually too bad to tackle but you do need to watch out for some of these moves as they can do a massive amount of damage. However, we’re here to help you through the worst of it!

So without further ado, here’s our strategy for defeating Champion Victor:


Boss Fight – Champion Victor

Phase 1

Out of all the bosses in the game, Victor is arguably the easiest of them all. He’s big, strong, but very obvious with his wind-ups and move-set. He tends to favour several simple moves that mirror some used by Parade Master all those chapters ago.

He has several punches that he’ll slam down into the ground with, and also has a couple of rushes, where he’ll run across the arena at you. He has some punches, that will see him launch in the air and slam down at your location (which are easy to dodge) and a Fury Attack where he’ll shoulder barge forward.

The worst attack is his five strike combo but given this is quite slow, you can dodge-roll through every strike and hit back with your own.

A good idea here is to go in by using your Flame Blitz and, if you’ve decided to add it to your arsenal, Flamberge Legion Arm. Hitting Victor with burn damage is an excellent tactic given his obvious wind-ups and if you can burn him while he’s rushing around, it’ll do extra damage. You can also stagger him too with big strikes but this section isn’t too difficult.

Phase 2

When Victor hits 50% or less health, a short cutscene will ensue and Victor will jump in with renewed vigor and much more powerful strikes. His move-set is largely unchanged but be careful not to get hit with his grab attack. If he does, he’ll punch you several times, throw you on the ground and stamp on you. This will do a lot of damage.

He’ll also have a coupe of rush attacks, usually with shoulder barges in your direction, and a double-fist slam to the ground. Wait for him to slam the ground and then get in close for a strong attack (in the hopes to stagger) or with a couple of simple strikes. Be careful though as he does tend to strike out with his fist if you stay too close.

When he’s down to about 25% health, Victor will go on a bit of a frenzy and his shoulder barges will be joined with a new three-combo rush where he’ll charge at you three times, then on the fourth, he’ll jump over and slam his fist down. On this fourth, you can get two or three hits in.

If you choose to call a Specter in for this fight too, it will considerably speed things up as with Victor’s back turned, you can get in nice and close and pummel away with strong strikes for a quicker stagger opportunity.

Final Tips

While Champion Victor’s first form won’t cause you too many issues if you’re paying attention to the strikes, the second phase, with the more aggressive strikes, could catch you off-guard. Just be ready to move and dash from side to side and you should be okay!

When you defeat this guy you’ll be rewarded with 1x Reborn Champion’s Ergo and 12852 Ergo.

Beating Champion Victor is a great achievement and hopefully the guide above should make your life a little easier. Have you beaten this boss? Got some tips that we’ve missed off from this guide that we should include? Let us know in the comments below!
