Rope Beater (boston brawler side quest)

How the EFF do you beat him? I shot him 3 times and was able to get ONE punch off to get his health to a sliver but I cannot hit him again. Every single time I parry -> disarm, he punches me in the face. Parry -> counter, punches me in the face. Break defense, punches me in the face. Attempt to punch him, he slaps my fists away. This guy is a joke.

Parry- do nothing. Just parry away for a while. Each one takes a bit of health.

just realized you can run and jump into him to shove him around and knock his defense down too.

He's a weird one as you have to use the environment to defeat him.

Attack him near a table and things like that and short animation will play out with you using said item to attack him.

What I did to defeat him was shot him until his life was low (as long as you don't kill him with a weapon you can use what you want to wear him down) and then counter him at a table and finished him off that way.

Also I think you can kill the other people in the fight with weapons, just not him. and climb up on to something that's above his attack range/height and shot him that way, he wont/can't attack you.

It's kind of lame, but beat up the other three guys first so it's 1v1. Then head over to that little table that's nearby. Put your back against it, and wait for him to swing at you. Parry, and you'll throw him into the table. Do it over and over until you win.

I just run into him to knock him off balance and start hitting him.

I found the way! There are some barrels scattered around the area. If you stand next to one and parry his attack, you should throw his stupid face right into it. He'll break the barrel and take some damage, giving you an opportunity to smack 'im a few times. Lather, Rinse, Repeat.

Thanks for the help. You don't even need to attack by the table, just keep parrying near the table and eventually you'll get those magical cutscenes.

Threw that jerk in the ocean when I was done fighting him lol
