The Survivor is a man who is an optional boss located on the other side of the Workshop Union Entrance Stargazer (chapter III). After you enter his arena and talk to him, he will sense that you are a puppet and he will attack you. In our Lies of P guide, we explain how to defeat him. We also provide a list of rewards that you will receive if you manage to defeat him in battle.
Where to find the Survivor?
Once you're on the other side of the Workshop Union Entrance Stargazer, connect the middle pipe that will serve as a shortcut and go inside the building with a few hanging puppets. Two of them will fall and attack you. Find a ladder near them. Go down to reach the arena with the Survivor.
How to defeat the Survivor?
The survivor is quite a fast and agile opponent. This boss isn't big, which allows you to perform a fatal attack every time you get behind his back. It is very important to perform this move - thanks to it you will quickly deplete the boss's health bar.
The best possible way to defeat the boss is to let him perform continuous attacks. Even if you have trouble with perfectly blocking his attacks or dodging them at the perfect moment, you can still block and attack him from a side. The health you lose when just blocking will be restored after performing the fatal attack (provided you haven't taken damage again).
The only time you can't rely on the block is during a rage attack. The Survivor will start glowing red. He will then make two fast spins. A regular block won't work here. You can try to perform a perfect block twice or dodge to get behind his back.
When you are behind the boss, wait for the fatal attack marker to appear. If it doesn't appear, you'll simply attack with a normal, fast attack.
For defeating the Survivor, you will receive 1796 Ergo, Survivor's Mask, Survivor's Hunting Apparel and the Stalker's Promise gesture.
