How to Beat Esther Winchester in Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course
In the starting phase, Esther will move up and down between two levels of a saloon, either firing drops of snake oil or throwing out a rope to lasso a cactus. For the snake oil, just stick to the left half of the screen to dodge it and when she tosses the rope, go to either the top or bottom to escape. Vultures will also drop dynamite that explodes into three projectiles and then two more. Finally, watch for the tiny winged horses that fly through and fire off a projectile just before they leave.
Now Cuphead‘s Esther Winchester takes up the entire screen herself as she operates a vacuum cleaner. She will suck in the garbage and the player as she readies her attack, meaning you’ll have to resist the suction and dodge the debris while firing. Next, she’ll blast it all out, raining down debris for the player to evade. It can be tricky to avoid it all but stick with it, and you’ll get it down in no time.
After being sucked into her own vacuum, Esther will begin running on all fours and spitting out tins of beef. The tins will all have a propeller on one side and sausage links on the other. You wanna fly around the propeller side to avoid being hit by these, but you can also just dodge the sausage in many cases as well. She’ll also occasionally fly during this phase and will spit out steaks in a circular arc for you to dodge.
This Cuphead phase can be a little more daunting but just watch the links closely as they scissor up and down the screen. When they close on you, you just have to be at one of the skinny points to avoid damage. Keep weaving through these links while firing and avoiding the hot peppers she spits out in groupings of five to win the fight for good.
