Alan Wake 2: Cynthia Weaver Boss Guide

Defeating Cynthia Weaver is no easy task, as she presents quite a challenge. However, it is crucial to defeat her in order to save Tor Anderson, your grandfather. Here are some tips to help you beat Cynthia Weaver in Alan Wake 2.

How to Turn On the Power

When you reach the main boss fight area, you’ll realize that you need to turn on the lights to reveal Cynthia. To do this, you must activate the generator, as is often the case in scary situations.

In this circular room, the generator is located in the outer ring. Look for an entrance along the walls of the room. Beware of the water filling most of the room, as staying in it for too long puts you in immediate danger.

Always find areas of land to climb on and avoid the water as much as possible. If Cynthia reaches you, she will unleash a powerful attack that could severely damage your health.

Once you access the outer ring, search for a climbable area behind a torn-down wired fence. Climb up and activate the power by pumping the generator three times.

How to Defeat Cynthia Weaver

Now that the power is back on, return to the center of the room where the button is located to turn on the lights. Avoid staying in the water for too long and run away from the ripples caused by Cynthia.

Press the power button, and the room will undergo a drastic change. The water will disappear, enabling you to descend the stairs to the lower level. This is where you can engage Cynthia and shoot at her. Remember to use the Flashlight Boost to remove her darkness shield.

Cynthia has a frustrating move where she throws a gust of water in your direction. Try to dodge this attack by hiding behind the large pillar in the middle of the room. Timing is crucial to avoid getting hit.

This fight requires you to land hits on Cynthia while evading her water attacks. It may take some time, but eventually, she will succumb and fall to the ground. However, she is not dead yet. Cynthia will start running towards you frantically, swinging her frail arms.

Continue to shoot at her until she finally falls. This is a tough battle, but congratulations on your victory! Now you can proceed to the next chapter or switch characters to experience Alan’s story.
