Oliver Collins Strategies 

Strategy Writeup

Oliver Collins is the first boss fight you encounter in Code Vein. This is a relatively simple boss with two phases that can be tackled regardless of your equipment or level ups. It is, however, advisable to boost your level to 3 or so to prevent incoming damage.

The Fighter blood code works well for this boss, and equipping a heavier hitting two-handed weapon can work.

First Phase: Bait the boss into doing a leap attack and then counter while his hammer is on the ground. Rolling into him seems more effective than away from him

Second Phase: Beware of the transformation animation that deals large AOE damage. Once Oliver is fully Lost, he will do a 3 hit hammer attack that has a convenient pause after. Wait for this and his two-hit combo and attack after each of those, just once or twice.

During the second phase, the boss will do another aoe attack marked by some red sparkles. Get away with a roll to avoid damage.


Attacks & Counters

Attack Counter
Phase 1
Leap attack Dodge left or right. Attack him after you dodge him.
Phase 2
Three consecutive Hits Dodge his strike to either side, try to move behind him and start dealing damage.
Flame Burst Dodge backward, after the flame burst, is over go in to deal with damage.
Three-Hit-Combo Dodge right, then dodge left, then dodge in either direction and attack.

      People claiming that Oliver is a really good guy, may not be entirely true.
      While he's shaped up to be the caring/thoughtful man we see him in our (brief) encounter, his memory fragments imply that he killed the parents of a young child in order to get more of that blood stuff.

      Thus why he states what he does in his flashback when becoming hollo- er, 'lost'.

        This game had NO RIGHT to make me this emotional about the first boss I would have died in Oliver's place if I could. R.I.P man

          Really needs him to be available as an Ng+ partner. We already have 2 mia's because of SP so make him a free update or something. He already has a pretty decent hammer moveset so why not? Also his reaction to hidden paths is perfect.

            Dammit Oliver! I though we were gonna be bros throughout the whole story! Instead I'm stuck with Yakumo... Don't get me wrong, he'd good but... he ain't Oliver.
