Two Xenochromatic Blubberbeasts are swimming around the Fading Veteran. You will have to absorb and borrow the sonar abilities of these Blubberbeasts to defeat him. You can hold-press your normal attack button to absorb their sonar abilities once they are close enough.

The Fading Veteran can become invisible during the battle. During this phase, he is invincible and will not take any damage. You must keep dodging and wait for him to reappear.

Once he does, he will not move for a few moments, thus, giving you an opening. Attack during this period to deal massive damage to the boss.


Achievements and rewards for defeating Fading Veteran

After you have defeated Fading Veteran, you will be awarded an achievement of the same name. Unlocking it will reward you with five Primogems and a Precious chest.

You can also obtain other Local Legends' achievements by defeating all eight scattered across Fontaine.
