Dragon Ball Z Kakarot Raditz is the first real boss that you’ll have to fight in the game. That being the case, Raditz in DBZ Kakarot is really the first major test of your battle skills. The main thing to keep an eye out for are his three special attacks, and figuring out how to avoid them, then attacking whenever you have the opportunity. Since this fight is the first major hurdle, we’ve put together our How to Beat Raditz in Dragon Ball Z Kakarot guide to give you some tips and pointers to help you out.
Dragon Ball Z Kakarot How to Defeat Raditz?
To defeat Raditz in Dragon Ball Z Kakarot, you’ll first have to know his special attacks, regardless whether you play as Piccolo or Goku. He has three. The first one is Cyclone Monday, which is like a spinning, disc-shaped move that covers an area around them. Move two is Saturday Crash, which is several waves of three or four orbs that home in on you. The third move is Double Sunday, aka two huge beams that rotate around Raditz, and are very difficult to dodge.
So, how do you counter these moves? Well, Cycle Monday you can either dodge by moving above or below it very fast, or you can block it. Blocking is the safer option, but dodging is cooler. When it comes to Saturday Crash, since the orbs are homing, they are very difficult to dodge. You have to wait right until they hit you before quickly dodging. Alternatively, you can block the orbs if you can’t get the timing down. Lastly, with Double Sunday, make absolutely certain you’re nowhere near the beams. Try to get above Raditz when he fires this attack, that seems to be the safe spot.
Aside from the attacks, the rest of the battle is up to you. Choose your attacks appropriately; wait for an opening, and strike with everything you’ve got. Don’t attack at all costs, be patient, wait for the right moment. And, of course, heal when you need to. You’ll be just fine.
