Heisenberg thought that he’d get rid of Ethan. When he came to notice, that is quite not the case he runs after Ethan’s Life. Heisenberg then mutates into a massive cybernetic creature made up of metal.

The mutation is the largest in the game when it comes to size. Heisenberg has a lot in his arsenal but thanks to Chris, Ethan has his Mini Tank to counter it during combat.

The factory owner starts off by throwing blades at you. You have to aim your machine gun at the red glowing spot of his mutated form to hold his attack. If it’s hard for you to attack his weak spots in time, you can block his saws to receive comparatively less damage.

Close combats inflict no additional damage, therefore, try to keep your distance from the mutated monster. Moreover, your cannon shot will also force him to the other side of the battlefield thus buying you some time. After inflicting enough damage on Heisenberg, he will hit you and knock you off your mini tank.

Once on your own, you’ll be dependent on your armory. Try to land some sniper rifle shots onto the head of Heisenberg. The head is not recognizable, therefore, shoot the closest thing that resembles it.

With time, the explosives put in by Chris detonate and take with them the factory and the machines within it. Outraged, Heisenberg comes with full force to kill Ethan and soon creates a whirlwind of metal. He in his last attempt to kill Ethan lifts him up in the air and tosses him into the whirlwind.

However, in the whirlpool, Ethan managed to grab the mini tank that was offered by Chris earlier. He then shoots him mid-air by all that he’s got, thus damaging his apparatus beyond repair.
