First of all you need to know that whenever the Lycan attacks you with his speed and will jump on you to do some serious damage and take you down, as the this beast appears you can see a red “X” indicator, whenever you see it, quickly flick the Left Stick to the left or right away from the Lycan and simultaneously press “X” to dives sideway to evading this attack. In a close combat, when Lycan grabs you, you have to tap “X” rapidly to survive, before this beast tears out your throat.
Killing the Lycans:
Killing the lycan is simple, but first you have to shoot him with some bullets, until he drops on the floor, but remember this state is temporary for a few seconds. Rush towards him for an execution move, and press “Tri-Angle” to finish it off with a merciless knife thrust to its heart. Lycans recover from gunshot wounds within a few seconds and then rush away.
To bring down a Lycan, wait and let the lycan rush on you, now with “L2” take and adjust aim to wound it with gunfire. Once you’ve killed a wounded Lycan with the execution move, hurry to the next corner and watch for the next Lycan attack.
Once a Lycan starts its charge, immediately enable Blacksight if available. You should be able to put the beast into a downed state before it gets close enough to slash you. With the secondary fire of M2 Falchion rifle (On the downside the gun is extremely rare. That said, you should be able to get one from the Royal Army or United India Company), you can stun the Lycan and can knocking it back. For that you need to press “R1”, and with the primary bullets you can wound it easily, and this makes an easy kill if you fast enough.
Always remember to turn off Blacksite when the coast is clear by pressing the L1 button. One of the last things you’ll want is to tap L1, only to make the shocking discovery that the meter is empty and there’s a charging Lycan about to destroy Galahad
