The Golden Rabbit
The Golden Rabbit is an encounter in Nier: Automata.
The Golden Rabbit is a statute in the entrance of the Amusement Park. In order to trigger this particular boss battle, you must have access to 9S' hacking abilities. Hack a robot, then hack the Golden Rabbit with the robot. The Golden Rabbit will come alive and start attacking. It's best to kill all the other bots in the area first so they don't get in the way or attack 2B/9S.
- The Golden Rabbbit is found in the Amusement Park entrance.
- This battle is required to 100% complete the game.
- It drops an S/A Machine required to upgrade your floating companion.
Strategy 1 (Melee)Although it is possible to use youe melee attacks to defeat The Golden Rabbit, it is dicouraged. Your melee attacks do not do much damage to the Rabbit. Similar to the other Golden Bosses, it it easiest to hack these enemies.
Strategy 2 (Hacking)Hacking is the easiest, and fastest way to destroy the Rabbit. While melee does very little damage, hacking can end the battle within a few minutes if done properly. You can hide nehind the fountain the Rabbit starts on while hacking. The fountain will block the ranged attacks. While you are hacking, set 2B to 'OP kill everything mode' to deal damage/distract while you are busy hacking. Don't worry, she'll be fine.4
The Golden Rabbit has one attack phase. While it only has two attacks, ranged and melee, you have to be leveled high enough that it won't instantly kill you.
|Trumpet||The Rabbit will blow into the trumpet shooting the basic ranged attack bubbles like the flying robots. Individually they don't cause a lot of damage, provided you are leveled high enough.|
|Trumpet Sweep (Close Range)||If you're too close to the Rabbit, he will use his trupmet as a melee weapon. This attack will cause consicerably more damage than the ranged attack.|
Notes & Trivia
- Similar to the three other Golden robot battles, it's quickest and easiest to hack your way through the Rabbit.
