Wolfenstein: The Old Blood Chapter 8 - Dig Site - Final Boss Fight

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood Chapter 8 - Dig Site - Final Boss Fight

After just a little more fighting, Blazkowicz will find himself face to face with a power he couldn't have imagined.

After fighting through hordes of Nazi zombies, William “B.J.” Blazkowicz is ready for the final battle. It’s time to find Helga, figure out what she’s been up to, and take the folder containing the location of Deathshead’s Compound.

Find a Way into the Dig

After dropping into the cemetery, move forward and off to the left. Ignore the guards below you, as you can’t take them out without setting off the alarm. Follow the path through the tombstones. You should be able to get a clean shot off on the Commander hiding in the watchtower. From here move forward and drop into the main area, crouching until you are inside the building with the second Commander (follow your indicator for reference). Once the Commanders are dead, take out the other guards, then locate the slope leading up to a mineshaft. Inside you’ll find an electrified gate. Turn off the power to the gate and move through to the dig site.

Find Helga

Now it’s time to find Helga. Continue forward, down the stairs and into the tunnel ahead. Take out the guard in front of you, then move past him further into the mine. Take a right at the blocked path to find more minetracks, another guard, and a Supersoldier. Take both enemies down, then continue following the tunnel until you reach an elevator.

Take the elevator down further into the dig site. There’s another Supersoldier here, so take him and any other enemies out before progressing down the shaft. Once you’ve cleared the area, head to the far end of the tunnel and follow the tracks to the left. Use the nearby power switch to shut down the electricity to the gate, then move through it into the next section.

Blazkowicz waits for the power to turn off to this electrified gate.

There are quite a few guards in this room, however, taking them down with your suppressed Handgun shouldn’t be too hard. Luckily, they are all paying attention to the zombies in the room below, so kill them and continue down the tunnel on the right. Keep moving in the only direction you can until you find a window that you can crawl through. Kill the zombies beyond, then keep pushing forward and up the stairs.

This path will lead you up a small staircase, as well as a room with a few Nazis and zombies. Take them all down, then continue across the boardwalk and up the stairs to the right of the entrance. Move down this next corridor, following it around to a spiraling staircase that leads down. Follow the stairs until they end, then drop safely into the water below and swim to the ladder ahead of you.

Blazkowicz fights to survive against an endless horde of zombies.

Move through the tunnel ahead and to a body of water that you will need to duck and swim into. Keep pushing forward to the next opening, then head up the slope and move to another small crawlspace. Climb up it, then press the button in the center. This will open the gate across from the button, however, you’re going to need to fight off swarms of zombies while you wait.

Once the gate is opened completely, push up and open the door at the end. This will trigger an uncontrollable moment, which when finished will place you in the final boss fight of the game.

Defeat the Monster

The most important thing to keep in mind here, is that the massive beast before you is blind. This means it relies on sound to guide its attacks. Use this to your advantage. The monster’s weak point is its mouth, shooting it anywhere else will not harm it.

Move around the arena quickly. We suggest taking a few shots, then moving to a new position when the monster begins to attack. This will limit the amount of damage you take, and make it easier for you to set up your next attack.

Helga is spat out by the Monster before the final battle.

There are three basic attacks for this boss. It will either slam down one hand, perform a massive two-handed slam, or sweep from one side of the arena to the other with one hand. As the battle progresses, however, this one-handed sweep will evolve to a two-handed sweep, resulting in a clap in the middle of the arena. We found the easiest way to fight this monster was to stay on the top level, switching to the bottom level whenever it started to perform a sweep attack.

As you weaken the creature enemies will begin to move into the area. At first it will be Nazi soldiers that come in and shoot at you. Use this to your advantage by letting the monster attack them. Remember, it is attracted to noise. You can also chuck grenades at your enemies, then let the monster finish them off.

Later on in the fight, the Nazi soldiers will be joined by hordes of Zombies. Just keep moving around them, taking them out with melee attacks if possible. Keep shooting the Monster in the face, moving from side to side and evading its attacks. It might take you a few tries to get the movements down, but once you do this the beast isn’t much of a threat.

Once you beat him, the door you entered through will open, and you’ll need to move inside and interact with the folder beside Helga’s body. This will trigger the ending cut scene, which will set the table for the story in The New Order.
