View Full Version : How to ace the Kraken Easily!

While trying to ace Kraken, I noticed something... Everytime, the same ships come back!

So using this I found an easy way to ace the kraken!

1. Take out cannons but NOT entire ship! (This is important)

2. When the Kraken begins to come out, go to the bottom deck and shoot madly with one of the cannons. This will kill it as it is coming out the water. Then just kill the other tentacle as normal.

3. The ships will come back but don't worry. Since the same ones come back everytime, they cannot shoot at you. Just wait around for a while.

4. Repeat step 2.

5. Repear step 3.

6. This time the Kraken will come out randomly. Stay in the middle, next to the checkpoint and when it comes out away from the ship, run to the gun and shoot. Repeat until it dies!

Hope this helps! Thanks to Cog for helping me work out step 6!

Your welcome! It works really well. That's how I beat it, and how Cog did, since I told him how while we were playing together.

In my eyes, the lack of a respawn system for "crippled" ships and the fact that the ship attack waves are not kill-, but time-based is just a bad technical solution. I found out about those flaws on my second kraken playthrough and aced the level using the same method on the third playthrough. The bossfight is quite cinematic and is based on a nice gameplay concept, but it's just easily cheatable. Plus, I think rather than just letting the kraken's head appear and die, they could have found a better, more epic ending, maybe involving water gameplay. Like, for example, the ship getting hit by the desperate kraken and falling apart. Next, the final battle phase would take place underwater, sackboy against the remainder of our cute kraken.
