Stefano Valentini Boss Fight:
After the cut scene, where Sebastian finally finds Stefano. This will trigger a boss fight with him. He cans teleport from one location to another instantly. You have to understand his pattern of spawn points. it will be easier for you to target him with your weapons, once you know where he will appear next. Keep the handgun ready and to damage hard try a few shots of the shotgun. Look on small tables below paintings in the arena.
Phase 1: As the fight starts Stefano will teleport fast towards you around four times. So here you don’t really need to shoot him, all you have to do is dodge his attacks. Once he is done with shifting from one place to another he will come to stab you, you have to again dodge his knife attacks and when you do this successfully shoot him. He will also throw the knife at you so be ready to dodge. After every dodge, you have to take a successful shot. Very important, Stefano will try to trap you in time by taking the photo, to dodge this you have to break the line of sight, as you hear the camera shutter.
Phase 2: In the second phase, the massive eye Aperture will join the fight, and you have to cover yourself to run from its tentacles attack. This will directly try to stab hide behind the walls. There are three points, two walls on left and right and one in the center. take the extreme right one, and as Stefano teleports towards you shoot him. He will shot Philistine! And run towards you in the straight line, you have to dodge and shoot. Remember his knife attack will eat a lot of your health so it is very important to escape from that.
Stefano’s teleporting thing is annoying you have to wait for a while to take a shot. You can also draw him towards you, but d dodge, if you are not good at that then run around really fast. Because the aperture will also attack in between. After Stefano dies the aperture will go away.
