Auguste Strategies NieR Automata

Auguste Strategy (Melee) NieR Automata

Auguste is a boss that relies on its arm machine parts to attack. He has several attack options and is accompanied by a number of Machine Lifeforms that will aid him in Combat. These Machine Lifeforms will stand at a level slightly lower than Auguste, Level 50. They can be faced and countered just like any other Standard Machine enemy you have encountered in the game. You should focus your attacks mostly on Auguste unless the Machine units begins to surround you or get too close. Weave your way through each of his attack to be able to circle around him and deal a few melee attacks. 

A few of Auguste's attack involves dispersing the machine parts on his arms, these attacks will usually give you openings to approach. Attacks to avoid are his AoE spin attacks that affect the area around him. His larger spin attacks can be jumped over or dodged through once it is initiated. When you see his homing attack begin, start to distance yourself to avoid contact. His arms will trace you for a short duration. During this time, you can clear any other machine lifeforms in your path.

When facing him, try not to linger directly in front of Auguste to avoid its frontal slaps and clap attacks. You're less likely to be affected from his attacks from the side or if you try to get behind him. Throughout the encounter aim to get to his side, or quickly advance in between his close range attacks to deal your own set of attacks before repositioning. If he initiates an attack where his parts disperse away, these are also opportunities to approach and attack. Clear the other machines as they approach, but they are not the priority. This will slowly wear Auguste down and you will be able to complete the encounter. 

Once he is defeated, the other machines will surround him and beg for mercy. At this point you can choose to finish him off or spare him. 

Auguste Attacks NieR Automata

First Phase
Machine bounce Auguste unlinks its arms and sends them bouncing around the arena. Keep running away from the parts until they are relinked back to Auguste. 
Brother Summon Smaller Machine Lifeform Enemies will join Auguste in battle. They can be cleared like normal enemies in the game.
Machine Part Hover Auguste unlinks its arm parts and they hover forward. Run away to avoid them and use the open gaps in between to reposition yourself. 
Machine projectile This time Auguste uses its parts and flings them forward, forcing you to circle around him or move off to the side to avoid contact. 
Slam August brings its arm straight up and slams forward. This short ranged attack can be dodged easily by moving to either side.
Arm extended reach Its arm slowly extends and tracks the player. Keep moving away to avoid contact
Clap The arms will slightly extend then come together in a clap. Jump over this action of back away from the attack range. 
Small Spin Its arm begins to spin causing damage to its direct vicinity. Back away to get out of range. 
Extended Spin Like the regular spin, but Auguste extends its arms during this action. This spin moves much slower. Players can attempt to hop over this attack.
Wall clump Auguste can create a small wall or clumb of its arm parts to keep you from moving into a certain direction. This is a static action, so simply avoid the clumped parts.

      This unit is probably named after August Schlegel. With his brother Friedrich, they were the leading influence within Jena Romanticism. The movement is considered to have contributed to the development of German idealism in late modern philosophy.

        For some reason, all audio on my PS4 cut out when I started fighting him and it only came back after I beat him. What the hell, Auguste?
