At the end of the first drop in Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water, you will face your first boss. This enemy is relatively tame compared to the boss fights in the rest of the game, but it’s by no means easy. This guide gives some tips to help you defeat this boss and complete the first mission in the game.

It’s all too easy to let this manager sneak up on you and get too close to you. If that happens, he will quickly lash out at you and cause damage. So, instead, try to move around the arena while shooting through the viewfinder. This ensures that you keep the boss in plain sight and you can continue to capture it with Camera Obscura without getting too close to confuse you.

Boss fights revolve around timing in Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water. You need to capture as many targets as possible with each shot to increase your score and cause damage. You have to wait for the camera to recharge between shots, so rotating the lens around while you wait is a great way to line up for your next shot and make sure you’re going to take down the boss as fast as you can.


As mentioned, this is the game’s tutorial boss, but it’s surprisingly hard to defeat. Keep moving and capture as many targets as you can, and eventually you will eliminate this boss. We found that we had to shoot five targets in one shot three times before the boss finally fell. This may vary depending on how you perform in the early shots.
