STAY AWAY: You'll want to keep your distance

You'll want to keep your distance as Riot has a lot of health for you to burn through and he doesn't miss from short range.

He uses and Epic Heavy Assault Rifle, so using something like a Sniper would be really helpful.

Just keep moving, taking pop shots, and chipping away at his health and you should be able to defeat Riot nice and quickly.


If you do have to go up close, make sure you're shielded up and have some powerful weapons of your own. If you can simply do a lot more damage in a short period of time that Riot himself, you'll be able to complete the Epic quests without too many issues.

Riot also doesn't move far, so you should always find him in this location. Therefore, if you don't manage to defeat him the first time, you can try again in the next game with the tips you've learned.
