      Spiral Spear is the tool of choice against both Snake Eyes and Drunkard Class mini bosses. Spam the loaded R2 attack to annihilate their posture.

        The tool takes care of the second stage of the guardian ape boss in just a few hits. Outside of that it's good for group fights as it does a massive amount of damage, can close ground quickly, and can easily hit multiple enemies at once.
