At the top, you can climb through the control room and enter the Amber Storeroom. Interact with the big piece of Amber in the corner for a cutscene in which Ashley is yet again captured.
Go After Ashley
Leave the Amber Storeroom and enter the Campsite, taking the first path on the right. You'll see some Soldiers ahead, but it's worth exploring this area for a Clockwork Castellan. In addition, take all the supplies in the little office, then drop down to the area below and take the Gold Bar (L). Carry on through the tent, taking all the supplies and reading and listening to the Files. It's now time for the showdown with Krauser.
After the cutscene, Krauser will be raining down bullets and explosions onto your position. For now, the only thing you can do is run away. Follow the path to your left, using the debris for cover. Take the stairs up, and you'll notice a crank that'll open the door below. However, Krauser will be attacking you the entire time. You need to fight back at this point, using weapons like the Striker to deal heavy damage at once. Eventually, Krasuer will throw a Flash Grenade and escape. This means you're safe to use the crank and open up the passage ahead.
In the next part of the Ruins, there'll be laser tripwires to avoid and shoot, and Krasuer will also try to sneak up on you. There'll also be turrets mounted to the wall, which can be shot. Eventually, you'll come out in the open along a long path of road with Krauser at the end shooting explosive arrows at you. Use the cover to move up, and you can also distract him by shooting him when you get close to the end. In the next room, you'll need to deal enough damage until Krasuer retreats in a cutscene and transforms into a monster.
Next, make your way through the Ruins as Krauser jumps out at you and attacks. You can choose to attack back, but it's difficult to have enough time to stagger him with damage. Just stay alive and come out the other side and climb the ladder for the final showdown.
This is where the boss encounter ends. Krauser will deflect some of your attacks to the body with his shield-like arm, so aim around it and eventually, he'll stagger, allowing you to get up close and personal. Weapons like the Striker and LE 5 work well here, allowing you to deal lots of damage quickly.
If you get too close to the sides of the arena, Krauser will knock you off and you'll have to use up some Combat Knife stamina to get back on level terms. After dealing enough damage, Krauser will die for good in a cutscene. You'll get his Fighting Knife as a reward.
Go After Ashley
Now he's dead, you can get back to rescuing Ashley, so cross over the drawbridge to complete Chapter 14.
