What is the Blade Mode glitch?
The Blade Mode glitch happens when Senator Armstrong jumps into the air and throws rubble at Raiden. When Armstrong performs this move, you’re supposed to use Blade Mode to cut the rubble and prevent damage. However, the glitch prevents you from using Blade Mode at all. If you don’t have Repair Nanopaste, you’ll die and have to restart the boss fight.
So yeah, it’s an annoying glitch.
How to fix the Blade Mode glitch in the Senator Armstrong Fight
We recommend fixing the Blade Mode glitch by temporarily lowering the game’s resolution to 800×600. It sucks to lose the graphical fidelity, but this improves the game’s performance and should prevent glitches.
If lowering the resolution doesn’t work, try using the “windowed” mode to improve performance and reduce the number of resources your PC needs to load the attack animation.
One final solution is to pause the game for 5-10 seconds when Armstrong performs his rubble attack. This gives your PC ample time to load the resources necessary to activate Blade Mode.
An FPS counter tool is also helpful to determine if you’re dropping frames. These fixes should help resolve the Blade Mode bug so you can complete the Senator Armstrong boss fight.
