  1. Use traps to beat a couple of enemies.
  2. Use Heavy Swings and take out three Foot Clan robots.

  • Secret Diary: This is available when you start the Episode. Simply attack the card displays which are to the right of the subway entrance. 
  • Disgusting Bug: Like with all Episodes, you have to destroy a box carrying the Foot Clan symbol which contains the bug. 
  • Genghis Cameo: You have to open the big vault door by striking the sewer valve.

TMNT Shredder's Revenge - Beating Rat King

TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge – How to beat Rat King

Rat King has three major attacks that will come your way. 

  • He will hold you, swing you around, and throw you in a different direction. 
  • A fast kick that is tough to dodge if you are standing too near Rat King.
  • Calling upon a horde of rodents that can overwhelm players, and even bite at them. 

In order to fight Rat King, be mobile and avoid the attacks by the rats. If you are bitten, you will be stunned, and allow Rat King to have his way with you.

Furthermore, if you dodge his running attacks, the boss will collapse after striking walls. Make sure to maximize this opportunity and strike Rat King to your heart’s content until he is defeated.
