To give that big bad demon boss a run for its money, you’ll need to make sure that you first have the VIP card, as this is the final bunker of the game before reaching the end. Head to the easternmost green circle marker on your map — it’s not too far from the beach, so pack some sunscreen while you’re at it. Once you spot a corpse on your right at the entrance, congratulations — you’ve found your demonic destination. Next, prepare to descend deep into the bowels of the cave, and when you finally reach the end, get ready for a tanky and towering demon to leap out and say hello. Then, it’s time to show that demon who’s boss.

Firstly, let’s talk about the importance of preparation. It’s essential to be equipped with the right tools and weapons for the job. As you already know, bringing a cross will give you a significant advantage as it will set the Demon Boss on fire and weaken him. But don’t stop there — make sure you bring a reliable weapon such as a shotgun. You don’t want to go up against the Demon Boss with a slingshot, right?

Next up, don’t forget your trusty flashlight. The Hell Caves are dark and eerie, and you don’t want to be caught stumbling around in the dark. The flashlight will help you see underground and spot any surprises the Demon Boss may have in store.

Once you’re well-equipped, it’s time to face off against the Demon Boss. But be warned; this will not be a walk in the park. The Demon Boss is powerful and cunning and will stop at nothing to defeat you. But fear not — you’re armed with the knowledge of his weakness.
