Boss encountered are identified by their introductory title that will be displayed just before combat begins. Their HP bar and Level will also be displayed above the character throughout the combat encounter. Some bosses in the game may be optional and avoided.

Goliath Flyer Strategies NieR Automata

Goliath Flyer Strategy (Melee) NieR Automata

The Golitath Flyer appears after a series of aerial encounters with other airborne machines. At the start of the encounter, you can begin to fight the unit head on as it begins by releasing an array or orbs from both sides of the unit. Approach it head on and as soon as it begins to shift, back away to give yourself space to react to its next attack. 

While in the center watch out for its laser. This move can be easily anticipated from the way the unit tilts its center section down in preparation for the laser. The laser beam then shoots down, slowly moving its way up the center. Watch where the unit is facing and adjust your position accordingly to avoid damage. The same goes for when the unit extends its form in order to release two missiles. Position yourself accordingly. Since you are in the air, there is plenty of room to dodge out of the way of any incoming attacks.

Continue to reposition around, while focusing your attacks on the center area of the unit. Use a combination of backing up and closing in between the unit attacks to eventually destroy it.

First Phase
Orb release Orbs are sporadically released from the unit in all directions. They are slow moving and can be dodged.
Missiles Two missiles are released. When parts of the unit begin to shift or unlatch, back away to allow for position adjustments 
Laser Beam A dense laser starts a vertical sweep from down going up. This action begins slowly, so when you see it, move away from the center area.
