Steelrising: How to Beat Louvre Selenite

Louvre Selenite is a huge mass of metal and destruction in Steelrising. He holds a huge tower shield in one hand and a deadly scythe in the other.

Much like the City Bishop, the Selenite has a large health bar to deplete alongside a limited moveset. However, he hits a lot harder in comparison.

The following guide will show you how to permanently remove Selenite from the Louvre in Steelrising.

Louvre Selenite boss fight phases

Stage 1
The Moonlight will start marching towards you as soon as you enter the Square Court arena. He will make a surprise attack after taking a few steps. Therefore, be ready to get out of the way.

One of his common attacks is a lunge where he will back up before rushing you with his scythe. Dodge to the side as soon as you see him backing off.

The Selenite will then follow up with a frontal sweep. You not only have to dodge to the side for the first attack, but also go behind him to avoid tracking scan.

Also beware of its shield as the Moonlight will mix up its attacks by hitting you with its shield instead of doing a sweep attack.

On another attack, the Moonlight will cover behind its shield before firing a lightning projectile. Don’t confuse this with a defensive move. circle behind him inflict damage while he is busy firing his projectiles.

Stage 2
Once you deplete about three of its health bars, the Selenite ignite his shield to boost his shield attacks.

He will also get a new attack where he stands still while charging an attack where he fires multiple lightning projectiles. This attack will be easy to spot thanks to its charging animation. Take advantage of the opportunity by dashing and dealing extra damage.

In another new attack, he’ll raise his scythe to his head in salute before unleashing a vicious series of acrobatic blows. These are going to do a lot of damage to you if you get caught. Therefore, be sure to step aside as soon as you see the false lift.

These are the only attacks Moonlight will mix in the first two phases of the fight.

Your only chance is to be aggressive. Dash to deal melee damage while dodging his inbound and outbound attacks. If you stay behind or on the defensive, this fight will continue and your chances of survival will be reduced.

Phase #3
When his health bar drops to the last three bars, the Louvre Selenite will be charge his lightning scythe. During this phase, the range of his attacks will be increased, so you won’t be able to maintain distance.

You’ll have a good window of opportunity when he lights up his scythe to enter the third phase of the fight. You can easily reduce an entire bar of his health during the animation.

The Selenite will also follow up with a twisty front attack fall to the ground. Also use this opportunity to reduce another health bar.

Once you’ve exhausted both of these opportunities, be sure to hang back and not foolishly rush in. Selenite does a lot of damage in its third phase and in quick succession. You will likely die if you get caught in one.

Your best bet is to keep dodging and circling the arena until he does the same attack move where he falls to the ground. When this happens, make sure you’re nearby to enter and finish off the titan for good.
