The Phoenix Bomber is a flying enemy that appears in Serious Sam: Next Encounter.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Phoenix Bomber is a very large bird. They were originally the children of Zhurong, the god of fire, but were taken by Mental and bred into a very important and powerful unit in his air force.

Attacks[edit | edit source]

The Bomber has only one attack: throwing large and explosive fireballs at the target. These fireballs are powerful and have a splash damage radius like other explosives.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

  • Constantly moving in one direction is usually enough to avoid the Phoenix Bomber's attacks.
  • Remember that the Bomber's fireballs have a splash damage radius, meaning that the player can still be harmed if they're near where the fireballs explode.
  • The Bomber's attacks are quite powerful, which means that player should target them first in a firefight before they take too much damage.
  • It takes Bombers a few seconds to get to where the player is, giving them a prime opportunity to inflict damage before the Bomber starts dropping its fireballs.
  • The RAPTOR Sniper Rifle and XM4000 Minigun are very effective against the Bomber. Their bullets will instantly hit the Bomber no matter how high up it is. Projectile-based weapons, such as the XPML4000 Rocket Launcher, take too long for their projectiles to hit the Bomber because of how high up it is.
