    I have created this guide for all those perfectionists who 
    seek to get utter perfection in Panzer Dragoon Zwei. I will 
    be covering each episode, the most difficult routes that go 
    along with them, and the many boss battles found after each 
    level. I will go through each episode step by step, enemy 
    after enemy and will be sure to explain just what you have 
    to do, to shoot everything down perfectly. Don’t worry, by 
    using the techniques found in this guide, it wont be as 
    difficult as you might think it would be.

    2.Destiny Begins
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    This is the first level of Panzer Dragoon Zwei and just 
    serves as an introductory level to get yourself used to the 
    game. You don’t have to worry about shooting down every 
    enemy, as this level doesn’t count towards the 100% Shoot 
    Down Ratio. The level starts off with Four flying creatures 
    called Xecom. They will fly right in front of you, so lock-
    on to them and shoot them down. After that you will notice 
    an assortment of sheds, windmills, and fences, all of which 
    you can shoot down to acquire points. Another wave of 2 
    Xecom monsters will appear, so take them out. After the 
    Guardian Dragon flies toward Shellcoof, a giant boulder 
    will fall from the sky. You can destroy it, or choose to 
    let it destroy itself. After the boulder is destroyed 3 
    Xecom will emerge from the ruble. Destroy them and continue 
    on. Immediately after destroying the 3 Xecom, 4 more will 
    need to be taken down. Soon after, an enemy called Tadomn 
    will appear in the distance. Take it out quickly, because 
    very shortly a Black Assault Warship will appear to your 
    right. Keep shooting continuously at it with your regular 
    gun ignoring any other enemies you may come across, as it 
    will give you a great amount of points. Soon the level will 
    end and you will be headed to Episode 2.
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    3.Episode 2 (Route 2, 1 Route Point)
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    At the start of this level you are greeted by none other 
    than 3 waves of sand burrowers called Goliathes. They will 
    emerge from the sand to the South of your radar, right 
    behind you in groups of 3. It should be quite easy to lock-
    on to and shoot down each wave of  3. After the wave of 
    Goliathes is finished, straight ahead of you will be a 
    series of 3 Caravan tents. Shoot the tents down with your 
    regular gun and lock-on to and destroy the 2 Mecchania 
    Gliders that follow. After this is done, a Khourieat rider 
    will make his retreat from all of the surrounding chaos. Be 
    sure to lock-on to him and shoot him down as quickly as 
    possible, or he will get away. After the rider and  
    Khourieat are taken down, a Mecchania Glider will appear 
    before you, as well as 2 others behind you. After you take 
    out the 3 gliders with your lock-on lasers, be sure to 
    immediately face North of your radar, and move all the way 
    to your left. From here the path branches, and to the left 
    you will be taking Route 2. This route will have you 
    commencing in a series of air battles so be ready. Once 
    your on the path to Route 2, shoot down another Caravan 
    Tent and rider. 2 gliders will follow, so lock-on and 
    eliminate them. Be on guard, soon after the 2 gliders, 4 
    more will be in your presence. Lock-on to them while they 
    are in front of you, and if you miss any turn around behind 
    you, and lock-on to the rest before they get away. Turn 
    back around to take out yet 2 more Mecchania Gliders. 
    Continue facing South as a series of 5 gliders will fly 
    strait over you. Lock-on to 4 of them, shoot those down, 
    then nab the last one. Your dragon will now take flight for 
    a series of air battles. 3 gliders will make themselves 
    known to the right, followed by 3 more to the left. Take 
    them out with your ever so handy lock-on lasers. From this 
    point on, just keep locking-on to each wave of enemies 
    unless I say otherwise. Turn to your rear and take out 
    another wave of 3 gliders. Straight in front of you, 
    another set of gliders will appear from the mountains. Take 
    down the 4 of them as well as the 4 that will come from the 
    right. Soon after, a bombardment of laser fire will sour 
    through the sky. Don’t become tense, just stay focused. 
    Shoot down the 3 gliders that will come down from the sky. 
    After that task is complete, 2 Warships will appear in the 
    distance, and 4 gliders will fly by. Take down the Gliders 
    first, than bring your attention to the Warships. You can 
    lock-on to them or shoot them down with your regular gun. 
    Be sure to shoot down any of the spiked balls that come 
    your way with your regular gun fire. 4 more gliders will 
    come forward, so take them out quickly. Now immediately 
    after the 4 gliders, a large group of gliders will come out 
    from the mountains to your left. You can choose to lock-on 
    to all of them until they are destroyed, or if you want to 
    play it safe, use your berserk attack to make quick work of 
    them. Next, to your right a Battle Cruiser will come into 
    view. You can take it out fairly quickly with your regular 
    gun fire. After this, gliders in groups of 2 will come from 
    the left and right hand sides. Once those are obliterated, 
    take out the 3 Warships that appear. After doing so, 3 more 
    gliders will come from the front and 2 more Battle Cruisers 
    will be to your left. When you are finished sinking the 
    Warships, your dragon will descend to the ground, and you 
    can relax for a while until the boss fight occurs.
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    4.Boss fight with Transport Ship
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    Basically the only tactic you need to use for this boss is 
    multiple lock-on fire. Move the cursor around in a circular 
    motion as you lock on to multiple areas of the Transport 
    Ship. Once you reach your maximum lock on capacity, the 
    lock-on indicators should turn red. This is when you should 
    fire. As you continue your assault, watch out for any 
    missiles he may shoot at you, and be sure to dodge or shoot 
    down the various falling parts of the ship. The gray 
    sections of the ship will fall off eventually, revealing a 
    series of missiles. Be sure to shoot these down for extra 
    points. Just don’t come into contact with them, as they can 
    take serious damage. Just continue locking-on to the 
    Transport Ship and soon you will be victorious.

    5.Episode 3 (Route 2, 1 Route Point)
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    This level begins with an assault on your dragon by 4 
    Mecchannia speeder bikes. Note, all of the Mecchania 
    speeder bikes found in this level actually take 2 shots 
    from your lock-on lasers to finally go down. One more thing 
    before you begin, save your berserk attack, as you will 
    need it later. Lock-on to each of the 4 speeder bikes and 
    unleash your lasers. Repeat the process once more, and they 
    will go down. 3 more will ascend to your left so lock-on to 
    them, fire, and repeat. After the assault by the speeder 
    bikes, a wave of 5 Cannon Barges will attempt to take you 
    out. Make sure you lock-on to each of their 4 sections, 
    just to be sure they get destroyed completely. Sometimes if 
    you only lock-on to 2 or 3 sections of the Cannon Barges, 
    one lone Barge can survive and get away. Just dodge their 
    cannon fire, as you need to lock-on to them as quickly as 
    possible. Next, 3 more speeder bikes will appear to your 
    left, and move steadily to your right, so take them out 
    just like before. After that, 3 more will rush under you, 
    and move over to the left once more. Lock-on to the 3 bikes 
    and demolish them. Now this is where things will get a 
    little tricky, if your not fast enough. We are going to 
    need to get over to Route 2, as the path will soon branch 
    off. Now 3 speeder bikes will appear right under you, as 
    well as another wave of 3 on your right. You need to take 
    out both waves of 3 as fast as you can. Start with the ones 
    that are below you. Move the cursor to the last one on the 
    right, and drag the cursor in a straight line over to the 
    one on the left, until you lock-on to the 3 of them. Let 
    go, and unleash your laser fire. Repeat this once more, 
    again as quick as you can.  Once the 3 below you are 
    destroyed, immediately move to your right and take out the 
    other 3 in the same manner. Once you take those out, move 
    as much to the left as you can and take Route 2. Now if you 
    didn’t kill each wave of enemies fast enough you will miss 
    Route 2 and be forced to take Route 1. We don’t want this 
    to happen, because we are going to focus on Route 2. Once 
    down the path to Route 2, 4 enemies called Gimn will fly in 
    front of you. Lock-on to all 4 of them and fire away. 4 
    more will appear so take those out also. Now at this point 
    you will need to use your berserk attack fairly often. 
    Right after the 4 Gimn are done with, an Assault Battleship 
    will make its descent from the forest canopy. Begin by 
    shooting at it with your regular gun. Very shortly it will 
    release a series of smaller enemies. This is the time to 
    use your berserk attack. Keep facing straight until all the 
    smaller enemies are destroyed. The battleship will now move 
    to the right so you do so as well. Your berserk should 
    still be active and will still be shooting towards the 
    battle ship as well as 2 Gimn. Once the 2 Gimn are taken 
    out quickly move to the north of your radar. 2 more Gimn 
    will be waiting for you to obliterate them with your 
    berserk laser. Now turn back to the battle ship and your 
    berserk should now end. Continue to shoot at the battleship 
    with your regular gun rapidly. It will move to the front 
    and your berserk bar should have filled up a bit. The ship 
    will unleash more small enemies, so use your berserk attack 
    again to completely destroy them all. It will unload a 
    second wave of small monsters, all of which you will have 
    to take out yourself for now. There are 3 of them so lock-
    on to all 3 of the monsters and the black ship if you can. 
    Once you fire your lasers, all of the monsters will die and 
    the black ship should be destroyed as well. If it isn’t 
    just shoot at it for a little longer with your regular gun 
    and it will fall to the ground and explode. A short time 
    after the ship is destroyed, 2 Gimn will appear to your 
    left. Lock-on and destroy them. There will be a period of 
    calm, before yet another Assault Battleship brings itself 
    before you. Start by firing at it with regular gun fire. It 
    will unleash 2 waves of smaller monsters again. Lock-on and 
    take out each wave of 3, making sure to fire at the ship 
    with your regular gun, in between each wave of monsters. 
    Soon after, the battle ship will move to the right and 3 
    Gimn will fly in front of you. Lock-on and take them out as 
    fast as you can and continue firing at the battle ship as 
    if flies overhead. Next, a lone Gimn will appear, so take 
    it out and continue your assault on the ship with your gun 
    fire. Your berserk attack should be half way full by now, 
    so use it once the battle ship unleashes its 3 smaller 
    monsters. Once the 3 monsters are destroyed, immediately 
    move to your right and take out  2 more Gimn with your 
    berserk lasers. Once they are destroyed, move back to the 
    ship and finish it off along with its last wave of small 
    monsters, with the last of your berserk attack. Note, if 
    you don’t finish off the ship fast enough, 4 more Gimn will 
    appear to your right, so take them out and quickly destroy 
    the battle ship. You can rest easy and take a break from 
    all of the intense chaos before you arrive to fight the 
    boss.

    6.Boss fight with Golia Tracker
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    The Golia Tracker will come from behind, so if it hasn’t 
    arrived yet, turn South of your radar and when it appears, 
    greet it by unleashing a series of lock-on lasers. It will 
    drop down north of your radar, so start your lock-on laser 
    assault. It will jump behind you and begin to move to your 
    dragons left hand side. Be sure to shoot lock-on lasers 
    while it is moving. He will switch over to the right hand 
    side, and will shoot red plasma blasts your way. Shoot the 
    plasma down with regular gun fire, so it doesn’t hit you, 
    and quickly look behind you, as the Golia will fire another 
    wave of red plasma. Next, it will jump into the air moving 
    near the top of the canopy. You can make it fall to the 
    ground fairly quickly, if you move the cursor around in a 
    circular motion, locking-on to multiple sections of the 
    Golia. When you unleash your lasers, the Golia will fall to 
    the ground. Keep locking-on and firing at the Golia, and it 
    will jump behind you once more. It will move to the right 
    and continue moving forward. The Golia will keep moving to 
    the left and right sides, just be careful for the red 
    plasma it will fire. It will jump into the air again, so 
    move the cursor in a circular motion once more, locking-on, 
    and firing at the Golia, and it should fall down. When it 
    drops to the ground watch out, as it will pound the ground, 
    starting with its left claw. The right claw will come 
    crashing down immediately after. Don’t get pounded by its 
    claws, or you might just lose your life. It will jump into 
    the air one last time moving across the canopy again, so 
    move the cursor in a circular motion once more, locking-on 
    and firing at the Golia and its many projectiles it throws 
    down. When it drops down it will fire a spinning object 
    headed your way, but just keep locking-on and firing at the 
    Golia, making sure not to come into contact with the deadly 
    projectile. The Golia should be near death at this point, 
    and when it does die, it will jump into the air and plummet 
    to the ground. Now here is where you can rack up points. 
    Right when it falls to the ground, aim your regular gun 
    fire near its mouth area and continue shooting the red 
    plasma blasts it will release. The Golia Tracker is 
    defeated and you are on your way to Episode 4.

    7.Episode 4 (Route 3, 2 Route Points)
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    Now this is quite a challenging level if your not fast 
    enough, but don’t worry, I will explain some simple 
    strategies to make sure you shoot every enemy down. Now 
    make sure you use your lock-on lasers at all times. And 
    just like in the previous episode, save your berserk 
    attack, as you will need it at a certain point which I will 
    explain later. Start by shooting down waves of Sweepers 
    which come in sets of 3. After the second wave,  move up 
    and all the way to the right. We are going down Route 3. 
    Once through the gate, lock-on to the 3 Sweepers that 
    appear and take them out. A lone Sweeper will rise up from 
    the water, so take it out quickly. Right after this, 2 more 
    will appear, take them out as well. Another wave of 2 will 
    appear. Take those down as fast as possible, because a wave 
    of 5 Sweepers will be in front of you immediately after. 
    Make sure you lock-on to all 5 and shoot them down. A wave 
    of  2 Sweepers will fly past you after this. Once you take 
    them out, things are going to get a little intense. I am 
    going to show you a little trick, so you shoot every enemy 
    in this tunnel down. You will need to save your berserk 
    attack, since you are going to need it very soon. Now you 
    are going to have to do this very fast, so stay focused. It 
    even may take a little practice, but you can do it. Okay 
    once you take down the 2 Sweepers, quickly turn to your 
    rear. south of your radar. First, an enemy will appear to 
    your left, lock-on and shoot it down. Second, an enemy will 
    appear to your right, so lock-on and take it down as well. 
    Third, 2 enemies will fly above you, lock-on to both of 
    them and destroy them. Fourth, an enemy will appear to your 
    left, again lock-on and take it down. Finally, an enemy 
    will appear to your right, take it out as fast as possible, 
    because you will need to immediately turn back around, 
    North of your radar, lock-on, and shoot down 4 Sweepers 
    straight ahead before they get away. The easiest way to 
    take down the 4 sweepers, is to move the cursor around in a 
    circular motion as you lock on and shoot them down. Now was 
    that intense or what?! Next, lock-on and shoot down 6 
    Sweepers that will come from behind. So far you are in good 
    shape and very shortly you will be using your berserk 
    attack. After the 6 Sweepers are destroyed, face to the 
    south of your radar directly behind you. A massive number 
    of enemies will come from behind, so be sure you activate 
    your berserk laser to shoot down the ones behind you. After 
    that, quickly turn to the front, to get the last remaining 
    few. When that’s completed, 3 Beefly will rise up. Just use 
    your trusty lock-on lasers and send them to the next world. 
    2 more will rise, followed by another wave of 3. Once they 
    are gone, you will have to shoot down a lone Beefly. Be 
    careful after this, because the many gates you fly through 
    will begin closing, leaving you little space to fly 
    through. When you get to the second gate, a wave of  3 
    Sweepers will come from behind and move to the front of 
    your dragon. Lock-on to as many as you can, and if you miss 
    any, quickly turn around, to destroy the ones remaining. 
    You will soon fly straight down, only to have 2 Sweepers 
    appear with one coming from behind. When your flying 
    straight down, lock-on to the 3 in front of you and quickly 
    turn around to nab the last remaining enemy, before you are 
    ambushed by yet more sweepers. You must take them down very 
    fast. Another wave of  2 will rise form the water. Lock-on 
    and demolish them. You will fly straight down again and be 
    greeted by 2 more enemies. You know what to do. Next, 2 
    more Sweepers will appear, followed by a wave of 4. Once 
    that’s done with, face forward, as 3 more gates will begin 
    to close. After you fly through the last gate 3 enemies 
    will fly above you. Lock-on and destroy them as fast as you 
    can. You will fly through 2 more gates, and will have to 
    shoot down 3 more Sweepers. After winding around a few 
    corners, 2 Beeflys will emerge from the water. Make quick 
    work of them. When you turn the corner, a series of hanging 
    objects will be obstructing your path, so Just move the 
    cursor left and right across the top of he objects while 
    locking-on, then shoot them all down. A final Sweeper will 
    rise from the water after this, so it shouldn’t be too 
    difficult to blow it to pieces. The level is nearly coming 
    to an end, as you are confined to a narrow passageway, 
    revealing a elongated bridge. Even before you come onto the 
    bridge hold down your lock-on button and position the 
    cursor near the end of the bridge. You will begin to lock-
    on to a series of Teketeke stationed there. Destroy them 
    all, and you will be heading into the boss fight.
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    8.Boss fight with Guardian
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    At the start of this fight, the Guardian will just swim 
    around for a while. Just keep facing forward as he will 
    eventually rise up from the water above you. You can choose 
    to lock-on and fire at it, or you can just use your regular 
    gun fire, which also works pretty well. It will dive under 
    the water and emerge to your dragons left hand side. 
    Continue shooting at it, making sure to destroy the plasma 
    it shoots at you with your regular gun. Next, it will move 
    behind you, knocking away parts of the bridge. Just keep 
    firing away, as he submerges and reemerges. The bridge will 
    soon be completely destroyed. Your dragon and the Guardian 
    will now take flight. Try to get your lock-on to its 
    maximum, before firing at it. You will get more points this 
    way. It will soon submerge underwater and little red 
    projectiles will appear. There is an easy way to dodge the 
    projectiles, while at the same time destroying them, and 
    getting a few hits in at the Guardian. They will appear in 
    long strings. What  you need to do is start from the first 
    projectile on the left hand side, lock-on to it, drag your 
    cursor across the lot of them until you lock-on to as many 
    as possible, let go, and destroy them, all while moving 
    around the screen in a circular motion, each time repeating 
    the process. And if you are real good, you can lock-on to 
    the Guardian and hit him as well. After the series of 
    projectiles are destroyed, the Guardian will emerge from 
    the watery depths, shooting lasers from the left and right 
    sides. Dodge the lasers, bring your lock-on icons to their 
    maximum, and fire. If you want to end the fight quicker you 
    can use your berserk attack, but if you want to acquire as 
    many points as you can, just continue your assault. If you 
    still haven’t killed it yet, the Guardian will release a 
    series of spinning projectiles which emit plasma. Fly 
    around in a circular motion much like when you fought the 
    red projectiles, locking-on to them, and the Guardian. Fire 
    away, and repeat the process until the Guardian is 
    destroyed. When the Guardian is defeated it will start to 
    self destruct. You may not know this, but you can keep 
    locking-on and firing at its head area and multiple 
    sections of its tail, until it submerges into the water. 
    You have won the battle and are moving on to Episode 4.  
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>
    9.Episode 5 
    >>>>>>>>>>>
    
    Immediately fire your berserk attack at the giant Nooth 
    when starting this level. After your berserk runs out, 
    finish the Nooth off with your lock-on lasers. Make sure to 
    dodge the blue plasma his minions shoot out. When the Nooth 
    goes down, look behind you. Very shortly, a small monster 
    called Tarran will rise up from the water. Shoot it down, 
    as well as the 3 others that appear. Another wave of 3 
    Tarans will rise, so lock-on to them and shot them down. 
    Right after you shoot the last 3 Tarans down, a large group 
    will emerge from the water below. Move the cursor around in 
    a circular motion while locking-on to each one, and destroy 
    them. Now move to the East of your radar to shoot down 
    another large group of Tarans. Just use the same tactic you 
    used on the others. A large group will now appear to the 
    North of your radar. Take them out with lock-on lasers, and 
    use your berserk attack for the next group that rise form 
    the icy water. Next, 3 waves of Tarans strung together will 
    fly in front of you. Try to lock-on to each of their 
    multiple sections to get the most points possible. Once 
    they are all defeated you will face the Nooth for the final 
    time, in a boss fight.
    
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    10.Boss fight with Nooth
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    This boss fight is pretty easy. You need to use your 
    regular gun fire. If you try locking-on and firing at it, 
    the Nooth’s shield will just protect it from and laser 
    fire. Continue to fire at the Nooth and the missiles it 
    shoots at you. The Nooth shoots lasers at you, but for some 
    odd reason they never actually hit you. Note, if you 
    destroy the Nooth’s shield, it will become enraged and 
    begin to shoot berserk lasers at you. Just finish him off 
    at this stage with your berserk attack and victory is

    11.Episode 6
    >>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    At the start of this episode you will first come across 2 
    hatches which will emit 4 small enemies called Shellfish. 
    Lock-on and take the 4 of them out. Next, lock-on to and 
    destroy the 2 laser towers right in front of the 2 hatches, 
    as well as the other 6 straight ahead of you. Then, turn 
    behind you and lock-on to the 2 tanks as well as the 3 
    flying Sealances, and blow them all away. Keep facing in 
    your current direction. A hatch will open up revealing 3 
    more Shellfish. Lock-on and take them down. Now face 
    forward and shoot down 3 tanks with your lock-on lasers. 
    After this, 3 more Sealances will fly over head. Be sure to 
    lock-on, and kill them before they get away. Once the 3 
    Sealances are destroyed, immediately activate your berserk 
    attack. Your berserk lasers will obliterate anything that 
    comes into your path. If you didn’t activate your berserk, 
    it would have been quite hard to take every last enemy out 
    before you enter Shellcoof. There may be a couple enemies 
    remaining before you get inside, but its not too hard to 
    nab them quickly before you enter. Once inside the ship, 4 
    enemies will be waiting for you behind the door that opens. 
    Try to take them down even before passing through the door, 
    with your lock-on lasers. After that, you will have to 
    destroy 3 tanks found on the sides of the ship. Be on 
    guard, 2 Sealances will appear suddenly behind another 
    door. Lock-on and shoot them down quickly, or you will miss 
    them. Next, you will arrive in a passageway containing 6 
    tanks. Move the cursor around each tank, lock-on and fire. 
    Once through the next door, 8 Sealances will now be flying 
    ahead of you. The best way to take them all out, is to move 
    the cursor yet again in a circular motion, while locking-on 
    to each one, taking them down all in one swoop. You will 
    now be outside the ship and straight ahead, you will have 
    to completely destroy Shellcoof’s engine rudders, as well 
    as the missile pods and laser bays found to the right, 
    along the outside of the ship. You can get a massive amount 
    of points here if you max out your lock-on laser icons, 
    until they turn red, and release. Repeat this process until 
    everything is destroyed. Save your berserk attack because 
    you will need it later. After everything is destroyed you 
    will be headed back inside the ship. You will come face to 
    face with 3 Sealances. Shoot them down, as well as the 3 
    others you will face soon after. Get ready because you will 
    move through the next 2 passageways very quickly and you 
    will have to lock-on and shoot down a large group of 
    Sealances. If you miss any, turn around quickly, and make 
    an attempt to destroy the ones that got away. The 
    passageways will end and you will be outside the ship. 
    Start by moving the cursor around, locking-on to the 
    various hanging objects found on the undershide of 
    Shellcoof. A group of 3 Sealances will fly by, so shoot 
    them down as well as the 3 others that fly up from the 
    right side. After that is done, a hatch straight in front 
    of you will open up and you will have to shoot down 3 
    Shellfish. Now turn so your facing South of your radar and 
    activate your berserk attack, which will take out the 3 
    hanging laser cannons and the 3 Sealances that will appear 
    soon after. After you take out the 3 Sealances with your 
    berserk attack, turn back around North of your radar, 
    quickly take out the next 3 Shellfish that appear from the 
    hatch, then immediately turn behind you and take out 3 more 
    Sealances and your berserk should end.

    12.Boss fight with Guardian Dragon Cocoon
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    Now this may seem like a difficult fight. Once you begin to 
    break him out of his cocoon, the Guardian Dragon will throw 
    a bombardment of laser fire and projectiles at you. Now if 
    you use the same strategy I told you to use when fighting 
    the red projectiles that the Episode 4 Guardian boss threw 
    at you, it should be an easy battle. Don’t worry about the 
    little enemies he spews out, as they don’t count towards 
    the 100% shoot down ratio. So move the dragon and the 
    cursor around in a circular motion, dodging the laser fire 
    and locking-on to the cocoon at the same time. There are 
    only two main green laser attacks you have to worry about. 
    The first green laser attack will shoot out from above, 
    leaving an opening in the middle and will quickly move 
    downward closing the gap. For this attack stay up high in 
    the middle of the opening and you will be safe. The second 
    green laser attack will shoot forward and move around in a 
    circular motion so in order to dodge it you do so as well. 
    Keep locking-on and firing at the cocoon in a circular 
    pattern, until the Guardian Dragon Cocoon is defeated.

    13.Last Episode-Boss fight with the Guardian Dragon
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    You have arrived at the final battle and should have 
    morphed into Solowing. Start by locking on and firing at 
    its head area. It will soon turn around and begin to fire a 
    large amount of acid form its tail. It will then open up 
    its many tail-like appendages. Be sure to fly through the 
    opening to the left of the upper middle tail. Continue to 
    fire at various areas on its head and tail. The Guardian 
    Dragon will soon begin to shoot out a stream of smaller 
    monsters. Shoot them all down one by one with your regular 
    gun. After this, face forward. The Guardian Dragon will 
    open up its tails again, but this time you will need to fly 
    through the opening above the left tail. Now you will have 
    to shoot down more smaller monsters. When they are all 
    destroyed, you will get another change to lock-on and fire. 
    The next part of this boss battle can be fatal if you don’t 
    dodge the Guardian Dragon’s attacks. It will start by 
    flying up in front of you. Move all the way to the left and 
    stay there. After a short time the dragon will attempt to 
    take you out with its tail, so move out of the way. Next, 
    move all the way to the right and hold your position. It 
    will come forward and try to whack you with its tail yet 
    again. Make sure you dodge his oncoming attack Any of these 
    attacks could kill your dragon, if you have lost any life 
    previously during the battle. The Guardian Dragon will 
    charge you 2 more times, so just use the same tactic. The 
    dragons next attack will be a series of blue lasers which 
    you can dodge pretty easily. After that attack, he will 
    shoot out steams of red laser fire. To dodge them move far 
    upward, far to the left, downward, and repeat until the 
    laser fire ends. Repeat this process, as he will fire 
    another series of red laser fire shortly after, followed by 
    another stream of blue laser fire. Now if you haven’t 
    defeated him yet, from this point on he will do the same 
    attack pattern starting form the beginning. Once you defeat 
    him, you should now fight his final form.

    14.Boss battle with Guardian Dragon Part 2
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    His final form isn’t too much of a challenge. The only 
    thing you need to do is lock-on and fire at it. Be sure to 
    dodge his stream of acid, as well as the many energy blasts 
    he will shoot at you towards the middle of the battle. When 
    he shoots the energy blasts at you, just move the dragon 
    around in a circular motion and they wont hit you. After a 
    long period of locking-on to it and dodging his energy 
    attacks, the battle should be yours and you will have beat 
    the game. Give yourself some credit for all of your hard 
    work.
