  2. In the first phase of the boss fight, you will have to fend tombstone off while dealing with his goons. Think of Tombstone as a brute – you can’t attack him without stunning him by using a gadget or a throwable. His goons appear on motorcycles and you can use that as ammo to throw at tombstone to stun him while you deal with his crew. Some crew member will use the drug to make themselves resistant. If this happens, make use of your gadgets or use the Triangle+Circle finisher on them to deal with them quickly. If you get crowded, try using aerial combat by launching the thugs into the air by holding circle and doing follow up attacks with square.
  3. After all the thugs are down, you will need to start wearing tombstone down. This is the second phase of the fight. Use your Finishers, gadgets and throwables to create chances to deal damage but always understand that he will only take about three to four hits before he recovers and retaliates. You can’t dodge very easily while you are attacking so don’t get too greedy to deal damage.
  4. After you wear him down enough, an event will happen and his attack patterns will change. He will now favor mid range to long range attacks and you are advised to keep our distance and use webs to create chances for dealing damage. At this point in the fight, there will not be many throwables left in the environment and the camera will be locked on Tombstone making it hard to look for things to throw at him without manually circling around him. Use any throwables you find and your gadgets to stun him. You can also zip in with triangle after he is recovering after a combo. When you are closing in for damage, remember that he will recover quickly and hit you with a fast attack after three or four hits.
  5. After fighting tombstone for a while, an event will happen and the mission will be cleared.
