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 Nydak Alpha on Dathomir is one of the worst. It's a massive, crazed, dog-like monster that packs quite a punch. You have to dodge again and again, as well as keep on hitting it from behind.

The video below tells you exactly what you need to do. Keep in mind that you'll have to dodge a number of times because Nydak Alpha does a series of sloppy attacks where it rolls around on the floor, almost.

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 beast.

Hopefully, this guide helped you get through this challenging battle. Keep in mind that this boss was defeated on Jedi Grandmaster difficulty. If you chose another setting, the fight is much easier because Nydak Alpha does less damage.
