Title: Dying Light Walkthrough Mission 14: Extraction - Rais Boss Fight

The final mission of the game really isn't as hard as one might expect, especially after some of the marathons that took place earlier on. In fact, the first several objectives can be all rolled into one, as the general idea is to move from one place to another, even if sometimes there are zombies in hot pursuit.

Do as we mentioned and just begin moving forward, including when the game decides to throw a zombie hoard in the mix. That chase will end when Crane drops through a hole and into a sewer, at which point a zombie child will be sitting there waiting to greet him. Hush the child up as quickly as possible, but no matter what there will be another chase to endure. Sprint along the only logical path through the sewers while avoiding the Virals and Volatiles that are intent on causing Kyle Crane great harm.

Hint: The chase with the Virals and Volatiles will end when Crane jumps to a ladder. The enemies will try to follow but will plunge to their deaths in a pit below.

We're not sure what Rais is thinking, because this nonsense of having us chased all over the place is only getting us more angry. With players back in Old Town, head to the waypoint and get ready to meet Rais at the top of the building. It's probably the most complicated climb of the game, but given that it's the final mission that is to be expected.

Once again the trip up the building is completed by taking logical steps. There is only one right way (that we found), so take some time to plan ahead. If Crane reaches a platform with some undead (or human) foes to worry about, take them out and then get back to climbing. It's not a race, so planning and careful execution are the keys to success.

Hint: Try kicking zombie foes off the tower. It saves Mr. Crane's melee weapons from the wear and tear that they normally go through.

The boss fight with Rais is nothing short of a joke, as it's more like a sequence in Heavy Rain than an actual boss fight. In fact, the boss battles against Tahir and the Demolisher are more difficult. Hell, climbing up the tower was harder than this, but at the end of the day it does wrap the story up so that players can get back to their zombie bashing ways through the game's co-op mode.

To beat Rais, simply follow the on-screen instructions and press the buttons indicated. Try to stay alert during cut scenes so that nothing is missed, but really this portion of the mission is more interactive than challenging. We're not sure why the developers opted to take a more passive approach to the final moments of their campaign, but try to enjoy the final (scripted) scenes of Dying Light.
