Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is an Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 game that features exploration and a lot of Dark Souls-like combat. There are a lot of challenging bosses in the game, but the Bounty Hunters like Red Kindle are a reoccurring problem. They mostly just shoot at you and travel in pairs.

Luckily, there's a great way to defeat them. They don't require a lot of hits to take down, but they can be deadly if you let them use their unblockable abilities. The first tactic I would recommend would be to slow down time so that you can get in a lot of hits. This will knock off a lot of their health. The second tactic I would recommend would be to wait for them to do the shield charge, and then strike them from the back. Keep in mind that the Bounty Hunters have various names, but they all look the same.

Occasionally, a Bounty Hunter will be accompanied by a Battle Droid. Defeating these ones is quite easy because you just have to repeatedly strike at them. Their attacks are unblockable so just dodge when the machine turns red. The video below gives you an example of the fight.

The Xbox One X version features a 1440p 30 frames per second (FPS) mode and a 1080p 60 FPS mode. In order to tighten up the controls, you should engage the Performance option. Hopefully, this guide helped you if you were struggling to take down this fearsome machine.

Keep in mind that this boss was defeated on Jedi Grandmaster difficulty. If you chose another setting, the fight is much easier because Bounty Hunters do less damage.
