How to Start Black Cat Fight in Lies of P
Previously, you could see this boss as an interactive character, along with his sister Red Fox near Union Culvert Workshop. Black Cat himself is one of the Stalkers, and will not be hostile to you until you reach the Outer Wall Archabbey. When he sees you, he will be surprised that you have followed him all the way here. He said that fighting was the last way to go, but he was ready to die for his sister. The last thing he’ll do is offer to disperse peacefully if you give him the Gold Coin Fruit. This way you can avoid the fight, but it won’t be as interesting, so refuse him to test your strength.

In fact, the battle against Black Cat will not be difficult. All you have to do is dodge his attacks. The weapon he uses is called the City Longspear, and you can also get it by looting a chest in an abandoned house in Barren Swamp Ravine. The main problem that can arise is the almost unstoppable attacks from the enemy. He will almost always rush forward at you, only sometimes moving away to rest or dodge your attacks.
Take advantage of his strengths and turn them into a weakness. Your main goal will be to dodge his spear and then immediately counterattack. You can dodge to the side and make a swinging attack if you have a two-handed weapon, or you can step back and make a counterattack if you use a spear.
The strategy against Black Cat is situational, depending on your weapon type, but you’ll intuitively understand how to proceed after about a minute of fighting the boss. Also, using any type of fire attack is a good method. This way, if you don’t have time to dodge all the time and don’t counterattack as often, you can set the enemy on fire to deal passive damage while they are trying to hit you.
Thus, in just a few minutes, or possibly even less, you can defeat Black Cat. As a reward for your efforts, you will receive Black Cat’s Mask. Unfortunately, it’s just an accessory you can put on, and it won’t give you any bonuses or advantages.
