Cyberpunk 2077: How to Beat Sasquatch (Tips, Tricks, & Strategies)

Matilda K. Rose, also known as Sasquatch in Cyberpunk 2077, is one of the toughest bosses you will encounter during the “I Walk the Line” mission. She is extremely strong and a cybernetic Hulk that requires a bit more ingenuity and stealth to take down. While she is weak to fire, defeating her will require a bit more than going head-on, thanks to one of her unique abilities.



Sasquatch has a self-healing ability that makes her even tougher to beat besides her overpowering stature. She has a purple Crystal on her back that lets her heal and drag on the fight longer than any other boss in the game. So the best way to beat Sasquatch in Cyberpunk 2077 involves disabling the purple Crystal before you even start the fight so that she cannot heal herself during the battle. It is recommended to upgrade your Reflexes and Cool attributes before you commence this boss battle as it will make the fight slightly easier.

How To Kill Sasquatch in Cyberpunk 2077

The first thing you need to do is disable the purple Crystal, and you will need to begin the fight with stealth. Sneak up behind Matilda while she is distracted talking on the phone. You will need to use the short-circuit Quickhack, which will stun her and disable the Crystal at the same time. Once the Crystal has been disabled, you can start attacking the Sasquatch with any of your most powerful weapons.

A good precision rifle, revolver, assault rifle, or shotgun is efficient for whittling down Matilda’s health.

At some point, she will get up and run towards her weapon, a hammer, or rush V to hit them with powerful punches. Being a melee brute in Cyberpunk 2077, Sasquatch is super strong but slow, making dodging her attacks relatively easy. Once you have successfully avoided Sasquatch’s attacks, shoot or slash her head to do maximum damage.

It is recommended to use ranged weapons instead of katanas and other melee weapons, as Sasquatch can do a lot of damage up close.

During the encounter, Sasquatch will grab and infect you with a virus your handy tech partner will try to counteract. The virus is not a big deal; it mainly flashes numbers (zeroes and ones) on the screen and can be a bit distracting. However, once Sasquatch releases V, you can continue using the same strategy of dodging and skull shooting.

When attempting to defeat Sasquatch in Cyberpunk 2077 be sure to watch out for her dash ability, which allows Matilda to almost appear in front of V instantly. Proper dodging is the key to avoiding damage here – players cannot miss this ability, as it is telegraphed with a flashy animation that turns Sasquatch into a blur.

With enough shots to the head, you will be able to kill Cyberpunk 2077s Sasquatch with ease, and will be rewarded with some random loot.

    Cyberpunk 2077 is an action RPG/FPS game set in the universe created by Mike Pondsmith in 1988. Players play as V, a customizable main character who is given an augment that slowly attempts to re-write his memories with those of a dead celebrity played by Keanu Reeves. The two need to work together to keep the protagonist alive. Players will immerse themselves into the neon-lit, crime-ridden environment of Night City as they complete tasks, augment themselves for improved mobility, and customize their weapons to face the foes that inhabit the open city.
