The first thing is to keep your distance when the fight starts and when the boss raises his arms in the air he will have to jump to avoid shock wave damage,
Then open up with Dark Blast, take aim at his arm from him so you can activate the attack gauge. He keeps fighting until he runs out and tries to avoid the orbs coming out of his mouth.
When you have caused enough damage to the boss, a series of shadows will appear in the sand, give all your attention to the shadow, but do not lose sight of Hook, and after defeating the Shadows, continue with Dark Blast and his other arm.
In the third part, Hook will shoot more orbs, and he will also send multiple shock waves which you have to avoid. You can also aim the Dark Blast at his head to destroy him in the final fight.
After introducing you to this article on how to beat Hook in Nier Replicant Ver1.22, we hope that you will manage to beat the boss, earn the reward, and get the best out of the game.
