Man, this one is really easy to get. Got it by accident, was aiming for the limbs because I figured it would stop the spinning arm attack. Didn't manage to cut all three of until it was at a quarter health, though just cutting two makes it so you can dodge easily through its spinning attack.
The vertical moveset changes when locking on some body parts for humanoid enemies. I stated this in my edit and wrote another way to trigger the blast attack
there is a glitch in the steam version where I can no longer target the final leg once the other 5 have been cut off, making me scared to finish the boss since I want this weapon :(

Ya - I recently killed him in a playthrough to get the new weapons and noticed that. I killled legs until they weren't targetable anymore, and got the v2.0. That last leg is either missing in the targeting list, or a graphical bug, but it didn't affect the fight other than making it one leg shorter.
The PS4 version has a graphical glitch. After all 6 legs have been cut off, one of the legs looks like it's still intact, and it's not target-able. The boss stops doing the spinning attack, and you get the 2.0 weapon if you defeat it now. The best advice is to mentally count how many legs you chop off, and if you know you chopped off 6 legs, then you should be good.
Is there a way for me to fight the boss again ? I'm using his 1.0 weapon, didn't even knew about this 2.0 weapons

Not in your current playthrough - you'll fight all of them again in your NG+ game though, so you'll have the chance to get all of the v2.0 weapons. When you hit NG+ you'll start over in the scrapyard in Act I, but you'll keep everything except your rig (all implants, weapons, and gear pieces stay in your inventory). Make sure the very first thing you do is re-equip all of your goodies - that first NG+ fight is a doozy.
hands down one of the best of the best weapons for ALL of the mid game, fast fluid duel rig weapons with good overall damage and the 2 special moves are so friggan good... i killed the entire vending cult with no armor on just using the ring of fire move.
i doodied in my pants
One of the best weapons in the whole game
Easiest weapon to get. When firebug enters phase 2 just run to the small room on the top right of the fight area. From there it won't be able to attack if you stay in the corner: you can just slide in when the timing is right, cut the limb and run back in the room. Easy.
