Capcom’s Mega Man X2 action-platformer is split into 10 stages, the first being a tutorial or introduction stage, 8 main stages and then the final stage. Any of the 8 main stages can be done in any order you choose. Below is a guide for the Abandoned Reploid Factory stage and it’s boss, Gigantic Mechaniloid CF-0. I will explain how to defeat each enemy and boss in this guide.
Mega Man X2: Abandoned Reploid Factory Stage Guide
In this stage you will face a few enemies before facing the boss called Gigantic Mechaniloid CF-0. The enemies you will face include Bar Waying, Cannon Driver, Scriver, Scramblers and Slidame. It is possible to achieve a trophy if you defeat the boss without taking damage. I will explain how to defeat each enemy in this step-by-step guide.
Abandoned Reploid Factory Stage
The stage starts with X riding to the abandoned Reploid Factory. X will crash his bike into the Cannon Driver robot outside of the factory. Shoot it until its defeat and head inside. If players take too long to destroy it, they may be shot at. There will be several Bar Waying that will block your path, simply shoot them to continue on your way. Small Scrivers which are screwdiver-esque robots, will attempt to collide with the player.
Progress further past the descending section with Scramblers flying around. There will be a spike filled pit so avoid falling in it. Run past the Scramblers assembly dock and jump towards the Mecha Arm so it may swing you to the other side. Climb the wall to reach the ladder and climb up. Move fast as the walls will compress towards each other as a Slidame attempts to slow it down. Climb the ladder and progress to the end of the stage. Pick up the energy item and get ready to fight the boss of this tutorial/intro stage.
