Brutus CG render

Brutus is the sixth and second to last Boss on The House of the Dead: Overkill. He is the boss of the Jailhouse Judgment chapter.


He was originally one out of two convicts who were both charged for countless crimes (including one instance of eating a little boy's puppy) before being killed on the electric chair six months ago and then "tinkered on" by Clement. The two shared the same mutant appearance; big and fat, covered in tattoos, wearing a black skin-tight mask on their heads (very similar to that of the second game's boss Strength), and with a multi-dagger crossbow-like launcher on their handless right arms. Clement originally sent them both to attack G and Washington; however, his partner moved in to attack. Brutus responded by elbowing his partner in the face, breaking his neck, and beating him into a bloody pulp. He then lets out a massive roar, as well as a dagger, as he turns his attention to the two agents.

Instead of a Tarot Card, Brutus is based off of the Shakespearean character Brutus of Julius Caesar, who is the first to stab Caesar (like how this monster strikes down his partner).

During Battle


Brutus's main form of attack is to shoot the crossbow bolts from his arm at the player(s). These must be shot to avoid damage. Unlike other projectiles, they don't always move in a straight path and are easiest to stop when initially fired. At the same time, his weakpoint is the same "hand" firing the bolts.

At certain points during the battle, you must also fight a small group of shielded police-like mutants who can be difficult to hit. If a grenade is available, throwing it is the easiest way to dispense of these monsters.
