Where can you find Gun Taurus?

After entering the Tsukiji Ruins, head southeast under a series of overpasses and be prepared to face hordes of unmanned tanks on your way. You might want to schedule a drive to clear the path of tanks. This allows you to travel back to the Iron Base and recover, then approach the Gun Taurus with full SP. After the last overpass, turn left and you will see the channel where Gun Taurus is hiding.

However, once you find Gun Taurus, you must avoid a confrontation and retreat as quickly as possible. At this point, your goal is to travel to the other side of the canal. Then continue to Large atrium outside. If you cover the extra distance, you can disembark at a more convenient location on your next trip. This new deployment point is essential, as you’ll take a few hits the first time you go down the canal as you cruise past Gun Taurus.

What Weapons Should You Equip?

When preparing to fight Gun Taurus, focus on equipping weapons with high attack power. Guns and SEs are best. However, it’s always beneficial to have at least one machine gun equipped in case your other guns run out of ammo.

In addition, we strongly recommend equipping the double rush property chip. This microchip enables an attack in which the weapons from port one and port two are fired simultaneously. So, if you equip two powerful cannons in the first two ports, you will get a powerful attack with the Double Rush chip installed.

Since cold weapons are less effective against Gun Taurus, it’s best to avoid them. For example, we were able to take out the monster with a dual attack of a non-elemental cannon and Freeze Blast. However, defeating Gun Taurus with this weapon combination took a lot of time.

We also recommend upgrading your tank’s engine in the Sally Garage. This increases your loading capacity, which has a positive effect on SP.
