But what really makes this guy hard is that it moves around a lot and is hard to learn parrying times. Deflecting it once also doesn't do the job. That's why you need to upgrade the polearm cause it's gonna be your bestest best friend when taking care of these stronger UGs.

Another problem with these is that even when you do a perfect parry, it will jump back and avoid Raidens second hit. Meaning you can't go into blade mode so quickly. Just take out the pole arm and start smashing them with it.
