Guide to Fighting the Corrupted Guardian
In stage 1 he will try to hit you with his hammer. His hand has shadowbombs on it so once he hits the ground with the hammer try to quickly shoot the shadowbombs. If you manage to hit them his arm will explode and he will kneel on the ground. Go to the arm you exploded and equip deathgrip. You can then deathgrip onto the heart fragment on his arm and hit it with your scythe. You need to do this 2 times.
In stage 2 he will start to shoot bombs out of his left arm. Get on your horse and ride around trying to keep close to the guardian but not so close that he can stomp on you. The bombs will start following you so while on your horse equip the pistol and shoot a full clip to the bomb once its close to the guardian.
The bomb will levitate off the ground and start spinning in place if you did it correctly. If the bomb keeps following you after you shot it you either didnt hit or you were too far from the bomb so your shots didnt register. Once the bomb is levitating just ride away from it and it should explode. If its close enough to the guardian he will kneel again.
Now go to the bomb arm and equip your deathgrip again. You can see the deathgrip point on the arm and to the right of it theres some wooden poles you need to climb up. Climb those and once at the top use your deathgrip on the heart fragment and hit it with your scythe. You need to do this 2 times and then the fragment will break off and you have won.
