Boss Battle – Judge of the Dead
There are a couple of phases that you need to watch out for in this battle. In the first phase, the Judge of the Dead has small appendages that will pop up from the ground. These will appear in your location if you stand in one spot for too long. Dodge back and forth quickly to avoid damage. To the left and right of you are two locations you can temporarily jump (yellow icon) to when the Judge of the Dead uses his breath attack. Once his breath stops quickly try to attack him with the Holy Cross but avoid his tongue that can pin you to the ground.
To damage him, you will need to blind him first. The Holy Cross is the easiest way to do this without getting too close. Once he is blinded, move up close to him to attack the red spot at the base of the torso. He is blinded only temporarily, so you will need to move back after getting a few good strikes.
The second phase of the battle, the Judge of the Dead releases some hell’s minions and black demons. Kill them off. Now you will need to watch out for the appendages that appear from the ground again. Quickly move back and forth to avoid damage. Next, the Judge will use sweep and pound motions with his arm. Jump out of the way to avoid damage. He will eventually stun his arm, and the RT button icon will appear. Press RT for a brief animated sequence where you need to push a couple of Xbox 360 buttons in a particular order.
By this time the Judge of the Dead is low on life. He will continue the above attacks and throw some black demons and “unblessed infants" at you. Use the same above tactics to cause damage and kill him. Once you have defeated him you will receive the Tail of Minos relic. By this point in the Dante’s Inferno walk through you can walk beyond where the Judge was standing, walk across and look for a spot to swing across. Do so and walk down a corridor and save your game at a Beatrice statue.
