Saga’s Chapters lead her to Watery and Coffee World, where she must face off against two bosses in one fight. We’ll go over how to beat Mulligan and Thornton in Alan Wake 2.
During this tough fight, it may seem impossible to take them down, but there’s a trick to it. Let’s dive right into how to beat these two.
Alan Wake 2: Mulligan and Thornton boss guide
The trek up to the fight itself is draining enough. So by the time you make it to the actual battle, it can be tough figuring out how to take them down. Here are some tips on how to beat Mulligan and Thornton is Alan Wake 2.
Before you enter the Overlap, make sure you’ve brought along all items you may need from your Shoe Box. This is sort of like your stash that shows up in any Break Room. Place any Charms you may need on your bracelet, such as the Coffee Mug Charm to give you an extra chance at life upon death.
Once you make it through, you’ll go through a few loops of a spooky forest area until you finally summon Mulligan and Thornton. Just as I did, you may try and take them down just like any other Taken. The only problem is that killing them has them respawn from the well.

How to make Mulligan and Thornton vulnerable
Instead of wasting your ammo, before hurting them, use your Flashlight Boost on the distorted areas, which there are a few of around you. While this is happening, one of them will be trying to take shots at you from above. Anytime you hear him reload, get ready to hit the ‘Space’ bar to dodge.
Once you destroy all the dark spots, you can now actually get rid of them. One will be on the ground with you, the other still sniping at you from above. Take care of the one on the ground with you first. Neither of them have a ton of health, and you should be able to take the first one down pretty easily, especially with the Sawed-Off Shotgun.
With one down, you can get rid of the sniper much more easily. His gun makes an audible noise before he takes a shot, so you should know when to dodge. I recommend getting your your Crossbow and just aiming for the head. As I said, they’re not strong, but they’re relentless. Finally, with both Mulligan and Thornton killed, you can continue onto a new Chapter!
