Battling Antoine[]

It is recommended for this fight that you make a couple of Drillers, for it's speed and power,and use knife gloves, if you can't make them, and if possible a fire spitter which comes in handy for Antoine's food consumation.

Antoine Thomas is generally not the fastest boss but he certainly can pack a punch, it is generally helpfull if you dart around the room to get the drop on him or if he uses his plate lauching attack you hide behind the pillars, food is plentifull for this boss unfortunatly it is for him too if his health depletes even slightly he will hit you with his frying pan and run to the nearest dish restoring quite abit of his health.

To avoid this as soon as he runs equip your fire spitter and shoot at him this will interupt his eating pattern and he will once again go after you, now make good use of your knife gloves or driller and remember to dart around the room and you should be fine. To make this easier, you can make and use the Quickstep, which can be easily made in the Yucatan Casino, in a place called Baron Von Brathaus, there is also a health 2 magazine, which should double your heath restorage, and useful so you don't have to leave in the middle of the fight to find food items, and also doubles your heath restorage for drinks, too. It is also recommended to make painkillers, since they heal a lot, and halfens your damage. To make the Quickstep, combinetwo wines, and to make painkillers, combine two beers

When he's dead talk to Cinda on the kitchen storage, she may not join you until Jasper gets here. You will find Jasper Sanford on the rooftop at one of the restaurants. climb the vending machine and meet him there. escort him to Cinda and they may go back to the safe house.
