Boss guide

Hot Shot begins the fight by taking to the air and flying in a circular path around the area. Hot Shot is capable of releasing gunfire during flight which can damage Shadow, even when he is using the spin dash. When Hot Shot lands, it normally fires missiles from the modules on its shoulders. After launching the missiles, Hot Shot is vulnerable and completely open to attacks. Hot Shot also possesses a charge shot which takes approximately 5 seconds to charge (nearing the corners). It uses a recite to aim at Shadow and thus, can be avoided by paying attention to the reticle. When landing a successful third hit at him, he will charge up his shots and increase its numbers. Four hits are required to defeat him.

As an easier way to defeat him in less than a minute, the player can jump onto the top of container before he destroys it, and launch a Homing Attack at the Hot Shot.
