Get Everything you need to know about How to beat Esther Winchester on Cuphead DLC!
The outlaw of the wild west In Cuphead’s The Delish Last Course DLC, the shoot ’em up boss is Esther Winchester.
This steer’s fight has four stages that must be completed to quell her. Here are some strategies for beating Esther Winchester in Cuphead.
Methods for defeating Esther Winchester – Phase 1
Esther’s first phase has the most action, so keep shooting at her all through the fight.
She will primarily present you with two bottles of snake oil. You may have to avoid these several times because they will twirl in the air before crossing the screen. If Esther starts winding her lasso, move to the top or bottom of such screen.
As seen in the image above, she would then drag a cactus from across the screen to obscure some of the action. If she is higher than you, you can always use the plane’s bombs until she releases the cactus.
Two other animals will wreak havoc during this stage. To begin, a vulture will start dropping a package of dynamite. When it lands, it will detonate two waves of bombs: a trio and a pair. Prepare to weave as well as bob until the whole bundle is finished. Finally, a flying horse could cross the screen.
This can be shot down, but if users don’t react quickly enough, a laced ball will be thrown at them. This can be avoided on occasion because it turns pink.
Methods for defeating Esther Winchester – Phase 2
Esther pulls out a vacuum cleaner in the second phase, which also involves repeating the first two stages. She’ll sneak in cash bags, gold bars, as well as loose change first.
Because there is so much on the screen to avoid, you may need to press the plane’s shrink button. She will vacuum the floor before dropping several safes on it.
They will shoot out the same stuff she just got, though occasionally one or two pieces can be deflected. The vacuum will be started again, and the process will be repeated.
Methods for defeating Esther Winchester – Phase 3
Esther is sucked up into the vacuum as well as made into sausage in process three. During this time, she only has one attack, which is to spit out a steak that loops across the screen.
You may be able to deflect this from time to time, but for the most part, you’ll want to keep moving quickly to keep firing at the boss. When this happens, bean cans also will fly across the screen.
Flying by the side wall will result in the beans lashing out at you, so give yourself a wider berth.
Methods for defeating Esther Winchester – Phase 4
The fourth phase will end with a can of sausages. Throughout this stage, the two strings never stop firing, so you’ll need to move up and down and also back and forth to avoid hitting the open areas in the sausage link. A wave of peppers will also spew from the can.
Parry the pink one if you can, but make sure to fly between them because they spread out.
