How do I beat Hades Cerberus Breeder on Titan Mode?

After traversing the labyrinth and falling down the Chain of Balance, there's a Hades Cerberus Breeder where you need to cut off all three heads to kill it but I can only get the first head cut off and I end up dead after the Satyrs come in and murder me. Any tips or strategies? I need the trophy for beating the game on Titan Mode.

I did this today on Titan and here's a real easy way to do this. First when you start the fight tap SQUARE and dodge whenever he's open. Then when he spits out dogs grapple them and kick them back at him for some easy damage. When the O comes up and you rip his head off you shouldn't have any damage taken if you dodged good. Second part is a little trickier but what I did is when the Satyr comes out use Hades claws and spawn a Gorgon to freeze him and quickly shatter him. After that just repeat what you did on the first head. Finally on the third head use whatever magic you have on rage of sparta maxed out until you run out then use the blade of olympus on the Cerberus until O comes up. Once you kill him you'll get a chunk of health back and some magic which will be needed for the 2 Satyrs. Basically I just kept hitting L1+O to lunge grapple over and over again until they were dead.

The general strat that most people are talking about is ripping off the first head, then using Rage of Sparta to rip off the second head super fast then use up your entire magic bar on the third head.

After that its just the satyrs (assuming they are still alive), just be conservative and can get it.

1st head:
As soon as he begins popping the 1st dog use the L1 square combo, this will do lots of damage and kill the dogs in the process. Dont do it too late! After thats done roll away, if hes spawning more dogs, repeat the combo else prepare to dodge his pounce attack(try not to block this attack just dodge dodge dodge). Rince and repeat,

2nd head:
You should have about 75-100% health. Ignore the satyr, kill the ceberus. Remember to keep AWAY from the satyr at all times, his combo reaches farther than you can dodge so just stray away from him. Use about two square hits the roll and repeat do not use the L1 square tactic. This is the hardest phase. Just attack a couple of times then dodge, it will take practice until you do it right.

3rd head:
Use your lvl5 blades of exile L2 magic attack repeatedly until you get cut the 3rd head. There will probably be some Satyrs up. Kill them from far away as you probably dont have much health left.

The key to this fight is to, obviously, avoid all the Cerberus' attacks by dodging, and as soon as the Satyr's pop up, press Circle to initiate a minigame to disarm them. Once you have their weapon, they are dead. Once the Satyrs are dealt with, the Cerberus becomes much easier to handle.

I used 3 different strategies for each head...
FIRST HEAD (no Satyrs) - Attacked from a distance with Apollo's bow. I received no damage (whatsoever) and never stopped dodging. Dodge and shoot, about 10-12 hits (arrows) per load.
SECOND HEAD (1 Satyr) - Went head on, as close as I could get, and emptied out my magic gauge with Army of Sparta.
THIRD HEAD (2 Satyrs) - Continued my barrage with the Blade of Olympus... somewhere along the line I must have killed 1 of the Satyrs because by time I killed Cerberus there were only 2 left on the stage. After some dodging (quite BRIEFLY I might add), they were both dispatched... I guess the onslaught weakened quite a bit. My health never went past half through the whole process.

Did this with the blades. First head is easy enough just attack then evade, kick back a dog or two for fun. When the first satyr comes don't pay any attention, just run around and attack the cerberus-using the bow helps a lot. then come two more satyrs and that's when you spam the rage of sparta. Easier than the final part of the maze by far

that's a hard fight, remember on higher difficulties enemies do higher damage then you. as soon as he spawns do the plume of Prometheus( it is square, square and triangle), instead of attacking him , wait for him to spit dogs and then launch the dogs using circle grab at him. this will do high damage to him. keep your distance and be patient. after the circle comes on his head, this is where people make it hard for themselves, after you kill his first head Do not i repeat Do not kill the satyr. killing the satyr and then killing 2nd head will spawn 2 satyrs more trouble for you. but killing the 2nd head and then satyr will only spawn one more satyr. use magic when needed don't do magic more then once or twice on each head. dodge and block accordingly. Rage of Sparta on the last head and any satyrs around.

This was easily the toughest fight in the game (Zeus is a pushover if you know what you're doing), but I found a fairly foolproof way to beat it if you've high levels of Claws of Hades and the Nemesis Whip:

1st Head: Stay as far away as you can. When he spits out three doggies, let them run to you and grab (circle) the first one. You'll kick it at the Cerberus. As soon as you've kicked the first one, the second one should be nearby (often directly in front of you!) Grab it and kick it too. There's a rhythm here that's pretty easy to pick up on. The third dog will explode, but as long as you're in a grab/kick animation you won't take ANY damage. Also, the only thing you have to watch out for is the Cerberus' fireball arcs, because even if he's charging you when you're grabbing a dog, he'll kindly stop and wait for you to boot his puppy down his throat. At all other times simply concentrate on dodging, keeping your distance, and firing arrows (just not at the doggies, you want to kick them). Using this technique it's quite simply to get past the first head without even a scratch.

2nd Head: Here's where the Nemesis Whip comes in handy. You'll have to dodge a lot more this time around, and probably block some of the Satyr's attacks too, but when you get a chance use the Nemesis Rage (R2) against the Satyr. It will zap him and any of the dogs nearby. While he's being electrocuted you're free to let off a quick combo or two. My favorite was R1 + Triangle. Since it's a diving attack, it's easy to sneak in between dodging. Be VERY careful with grappling the Satyr. If a dog is nearby or the Cerberus attacks you, you will be interrupted. Only grapple him after he's taken a fair bit of damage and you have a chance of killing him outright. Otherwise you want to do the same thing as the first head: keep your distance, fire arrows, kick dogs. Note that this time you'll also kick the doggies at the Satyr sometimes too. Generally you want to focus on killing the Satyr first, and just avoid the Cerberus. Try to use as little magic as possible, you'll want at least a half bar for the third head. Once the Satyr is dead, this part is identical to part one. If you take some damage in this phase, don't worry, the second head gives some health back.

3rd Head: Pull out the Claws of Hades and make sure you select the Gorgon Soul. Then dodge like MAD until you can get both Satyrs relatively close to each other. Pop the Gorgon Soul when you think they're close enough - if you're lucky it will freeze both of them - and go to town with your favorite weapon. You HAVE to shatter at least one of the Satyrs (at which point the fight is identical to the 2nd head phase) or you're pretty much screwwed. If you're lucky you can get both and then dispose of the Cerberus at your leisure. If its another 2 on 1 though, feel free to bust out the Blade of Olympus (R3+L3) and go to town on the last Satyr. When they're both dealt with, resume kicking doggies, firing arrows, and sneaking in attacks of opportunity until the damn Cerberus goes down.

Step 4: Celebrate with your best crotch chops, ass slaps, and hip thrusts while you scream profane taunts at your TV. Well, that's what I did. ;)

Well, I was having some problem too, but I decided to spam light attacks using Cestus. Then Satyrs will come, so avoid them and continue the spam light attacking with Cestus, anything else just kick the puppies on them, if you are in Danger use the Spartan Army. When you cut 2 heads, use the Rage and kill Cerberus ASAP. After that you can spam some Army on the Satyrs and then finish them with Cestus too.

Okay i waste about 30 minutes on this part..just tips from me :

1. Save your magic bar until Satyrs appear. use execute Spartan guardian magic when you in the center of Satyrs and Cestus..This help me a lot to kill satyrs fast
2. Watch out your environment. Keep you distance away from Satyrs and mini cestus.
3. Patient...haha..seriously...do not rushing to hit the cestus...just give one or two hit the run...repeat it again
4. Dont kill Satyrs before you cut off 2nd cestus head..
