fight lab, do the parts before boss fight matter?

#1YermomHoudiniPosted 10/8/2012 8:10:20 AM(edited)
in some of those parts I take quite a bit of damage, and then do well in boss fight, and I end up with decent rank. it seems to me only the boss fight affects the final rank.

is it possible to simply grind the boss fight for combot unlockables?

also, why does the stage gets harder? is it because I equipped too many parts? or is it because I got high rank in other chapters? I watched videos online for S rank walkthroughs, and their stage 3 isn't as hard compare to mine.

With the rank the only thing that matters is the boss battle.
And have you done all the boss fights before because it increases difficulty after completing fight lab once

I have completed fight lab only on C rank, working my way up slowly now.

the chapters in each stage before boss fight got longer and harder. should I simply jump to the boss fight and skip the chapter fights completely?

Yes, only the boss fights count for rank. Make sure you complete each stage quickly and with as much health left as possible. Each stage has certain conditions to fulfill to get the bonus points.

can someone confirm the difficulty thing for me? I really want to avoid harder chapter fights.

if someone online can achieve multiple S rank without the chapters getting harder, I must be missing something.

- You only need to s rank the boss battles, not the stuff before them

- The boss battles never get harder, only the stuff before them does

I meant you only fight the boss battles over and over, the other fights don't do anything other than for practice. Since only the boss battles count just focus on killing the bosses quickly and fulfill whatever bonuses (like throwing 999 metres).
