       Mega Man XZ: The Maverick Hunters > Mega Man X Series > Mega Man X2 > Bosses Guide
Listed below are all the bosses you'll encounter in the game. Each entry has a detailed description and guide on how to defeat each boss, including which special weapons to use. Remember to have sub-tanks filled up before taking on a boss, they can really help you out in a battle. Also note that the bosses are listed in an order which allows you to defeat the three X-Hunters successfully to gain all of Zero's parts so that you won't have to fight him at the end of the game. If you ignore the X-Hunters and beat another boss, one of them will disappear and you won't be able to get all of Zero's parts back, and you'll then have to fight him at the end of the game. Bosses
