Where to find chainsaw?

When you come to the gate through which Leslie passed, you’ll find out that you need a chainsaw to brake through it. Chainsaw is however held by the first boss – The Sadist, a chainsaw wielding enemy in chains inside the barn. He is the main reason why you have to scavenge houses for weapons and ammo. Keep in mind that once you release this beast, all other enemies will rush towards this location.

How to defeat The Sadist – boss with a chainsaw?

The best opening you have against this boss is to engage him in combat from the barn second floor. This idea is possible only if you strike him with an explosion attack. After being released from chains he’ll start climbing toward you using the ladders at the first floor. This is the best time to do a burst damage, since he is very slow while climbing up. You can lure him to the yard, and keep him running around the vehicle. You can also return to the barn, go down the ladders, wait for him, them climb up. You can use whatever tactic you want, but don’t let him hit you.

On the barn second floor you can find several hay bales, that can be pushed towards the door. Once the enemies start running onto the second floor light up the hay.

Watch the video bellow to see the above strategy put to use in-game.

How to pass through the final chapter gate?

Once you get the chainsaw, go to the gate and use the chainsaw on the winch. Shortly after, a short cut-scene will start and the chapter is completed.

    I hit chainsaw guy with shotgun shots on his way up the ladder. Then already had 2 explosion bolts around the bear trap. Annihilated lol

    the best way to beat this fucker is to make explosive bolts and flash bolts. use your grenade to get him mad but then quickly switch to the bow and launch a flash bolt on him. it stuns him while he is still trapped. then just fire all explosive bolts at him and a finish him with a shot gun or two and he will die before leaving the box! then use your shot gun to blow away the box and claim the chainsaw. best to keep him stunned if your reload time is slow. he wont have time to fire up the chainsaw and set himself free!

  6. G

    The best way is to lure him into one of the spike traps

    1. V
