  • Defeating Jeanne in Chapter 2

    When the flashback battle at the start of Chapter 2 begins and Jeanne jumps down, shoot her. She will block most of the bullets, but soon after she will crouch and fire her guns in a quarter-circle. During this time she is vulnerable and you can attack her, but it is recommended you just shoot and dodge her bullets. Once she is finished, her next attack will probably be a Wicked Weave. You can see it coming when a red circle appears under her. If you dodge her Wicked Weave, you will enter Witch Time. However, it does not last long, so try to use the time well. Either keep shooting her if you are too far away, or move close to perform a combo and deal a good amount of damage. There is a chance that Jeanne will try to move closer instead of using a Wicked Weave. If this happens, get some distance between the both of you by dodging. To get the most attacks in, always dodge towards her when dodging her bullets and Wicked Weave. Make sure you are in Witch Time before attacking.
