The Greater Psi Reaver is unique in that it is the only one of its type, found when fighting The Brain of The Many. It has a huge number of Hit Points, as many as an Assault Robot. The projection regenerates 30 seconds after being killed, as long as its brain is still intact. It does attack often... and with thrice the damage of a regular Psi Reaver. Its single projectile deals 60 damage to an unshielded player - the most damaging attack in the game. After we consider all this, it's clear it's the most dangerous single creature. However, the same strategy remains to defeat it: find its Brain and destroy it before moving on to the Greater Psi Reaver itself.


The Brain of the Many is one of the most difficult fights in the game, due to the large number of Rumblers and other Psi Reavers floating around, and the Greater Psi Reaver is just the icing on the cake, as the damage it does is enough to kill most characters in a single hit, especially on Hard and Impossible difficulties.

Your best bet for survival is to use any Agility-boosting items you have, or a Speed Booster, and then running to the small floor indentations that surround the Brain of the Many and smashing the Psi Reaver Brains inside them. The Greater Psi Reaver's will be among them.
