>>1 i just defeated them a few minutes ago using mainly amber and razor. make sure to defeat the hydro dude first since he heals the others, which i used razor for since he's electro. then i just blindly attacked the tall dude using razor and jean. lastly i killed the cryo guy by breaking his sheild using amber (takes two charged shots). also make sure to doge their attacks and bring a lot of food with you lmao i'm not that great at giving advice sorry, this is just what i did
