General Strategy

Most attacks are slow, but powerful. Be careful, it's extremely easy to attack too often, and get chained to death. With a vitality of 20, he will probably two-shot you. Attack once, then back off. When he starts to power up, move behind him, and charge an R2 attack, unless you are too far away to get close, this will ensure a visceral attack. The best way to fire a pistol for a visceral attack is to back off as he's attacking, and shoot just as he starts the fast part of the attack. Poison Throwing Knife vs are very effective if all else fails.
