The best strategy against VOV-A6/CH Lab Tech in Atomic Heart

VOV-A6/CH Lab Tech will be chasing you during the entire fight. So, there is no point in being too aggressive. Instead, you should choose a defensive strategy. Wait for the robot’s attack and then launch your counterattack, by dodging and hitting back. If you shock the boss using your electric glove ability, you will stun it and stop its attack.

This robot is able to perform dodge moves, so if you try to spam with your attacks then you will likely miss. Just be patient and land your hits when the Lab Tech makes a pause before attacking.

If you don’t want to hit the boss with your hammer and risk your HP, then you can use your shotgun. You can find a box in one of the corners of the arena. If you open it, you will get some ammo.

Overall, the VOV-A6/CH Lab Tech boss shouldn’t be too difficult - you just need to stop rushing this boss blindly. Be patient and you will get an opportunity to attack!
