If you’re just starting out Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, chances are one of the first boss fights you come across is the Chained Ogre – here’s how to take him down.

FromSoftware’s latest title is arguably their hardest yet, carrying on from the notoriously difficult boss battles in series like Dark Souls and Bloodbourne.

In Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, there is very little hand holding either, with the only really useful tips coming by way of ‘eavesdropping’ on nearby guards.

The Chained Ogre might be one of the earliest bosses, but he’s far from the easiest.

This is the case with the Chained Ogre too. The two guards at the bottom of the steps will advise that the Ogre is afraid of fire if you eavesdrop on them.

However, you are unlikely to have the tool needed to create fire on your Shinobi prosthetic arm, and having it will make taking down the Chained Ogre much easier.

For this, you’ll need the Flame Vent tool. In the area before you reach the ogre, you wil find an old woman ringing a bell. Approach her, and receive the bell, then return to the dilapidated temple and pray to the buddha. You will travel to Hirata Estate – complete this level to unlock the Flame Vent.

Avoiding the Ogre’s grabs is key to success.

Once you have the Flame Vent equipped, use it while fighting the Ogre. You can get a headstart on him but going behind him while he breaks free from his shackles and deliver a deathblow, immediately removing one of his ‘lives’.

Make sure you dodge his grabs especially – all his attacks will deal serious damage, but if he manages to grab and toss you down, you’re almost certainly done for. You can use the various grapple points near the bottom of the steps if you’re in a tight spot.

When the green arrow appears on the Ogre, use the grapple to latch onto him, giving you a free strike – but only strike once, anymore than that and he will have time to recover and slam you down.

Surprisingly, you can also deflect all of the Ogre’s attacks, but this is riskier, because it requires you to get the timing just right.

Best Type 63 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Type 63 is capable of dishing out some incredible damage thanks to its methodical firing pattern and excellent precision. Here are all the attachments you should be using when running and gunning with the Type 63. 

If you’re a fan of Black Ops Cold War’s Tactical Rifle class or a player that prefers a more methodical approach to combat, then the Type 63 is one weapon you’ll want to focus on leveling up. While burst fire weapons like the M16 and AUG continue to dominate the game, there have been a number of players picking up this reliable rifle. 

Despite its slower rate of fire, this tactical rifle is capable of killing an enemy in just two shots (one body shot and one headshot). The Type 63 is a great option for those that want the damage of a sniper, but wish to be more active in their playstyle. If you have a good trigger finger and decent aim, you’ll definitely want to add the Type 63 to your collection. 

In order to help you get the most kills with the Type 63, we’ve put together a loadout that you can use to crush the competition.

The Type 63 is one of the most lethal weapons in the entire game.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Type 63 in Black Ops Cold War, filling every slot thanks to the Gunfighter wildcard:

  • Millstop Reflex 
  • Spetsnaz Compensator 
  • 18.3” Strike Team
  • KGB Target Designator 
  • Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip
  • 30 RND
  • Gru Elastic Wrap
  • KGB Pad

While you can still make a decent Type 63 loadout without the extra three attachment slots given by the Gunfighter wildcard, the extra kit makes this build extremely comfy. First up is the Millstop Reflex. This is one of the only optics available that doesn’t clutter the screen or provide a great deal of magnification. 

While the 2.0x and 4.0x optics may give you greater precision on the game’s larger maps and modes, the vast majority favor close-quarter engagements. This is also why the 18.3” Strike Team barrel has been chosen. This handy attachment increases your fire rate by 11%, allowing you to get out more shots onto the target. 

It also increases your damage by 9%. While this may seem like an incremental increase, it does make a noticeable difference when combined with a higher rate of fire. To alleviate the Type 63’s horizontal/vertical recoil, we’ve attached both the Spetsnaz Compensator and Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip.

The Type 63 may not be the most popular gun, but its high DPS makes it a worthy pick.

These attachments make the Type 63 incredibly accurate across all ranges, allowing you to beam opponents with laser-like precision. The bullets will always form in a tight circle around your target, so there’s no need to wrestle with any recoil. Simply point and shoot. 

As you may know by now, visibility in Black Ops Cold War can be rather poor. Even if you follow our visibility guide, there will still be times where you get caught out by pesky head glitches. Fortunately, the KGB Target Designator adds 60% Reveal Distance when aiming down sights. 

The Gru Elastic Wrap is one of the most important attachments as it increases ADS time (30%), Flinch Resistance (90%), and enables aiming while going prone. Combine this with the Sprint to Fire and additional Aim Walking Movement Speed of the KGB Pad, and you have an incredibly mobile rifle that is capable of blistering fast kill times.
