LU-74 "Firebug" Strategy

The LU-74 "Firebug" is not an overly difficult fight and has 2 phases. During the first he really only has 2 attacks, a short whirlwind and a thrust with one leg. Simply avoid him when he whirls and run and slide and hit him, dodge his leg thrust and repeat until phase 2. In phase 2 he will do a flame attack right in front of him, he will charge you and he will do a long whirlwind attack. You want to again avoid the whirlwind and also the flame attack, dodge his charge and again slide an hit him. Dodge quickly to avoid him collapsing on you. 

Note if you sever all its legs you can get Firebug Throttle V2.0.

      I love this boss, I just hate the slog of getting to it when I make mistakes. It's not even that far, it's just full of enemies in spots I can't ignore

        By technicality you do NOT cut off ALL the Legs. The Leg in the back, behind it during the second phase cannot be removed. So all that needs to happen is removing ALL the legs EXCEPT that rear one during the second phase.
        For those who are mildly confused on how that works and obtaining the Firebug Throttle V2.0 weapon.
        I could not damage the rear leg for the life of me and was getting frustrated, and without attacking it at all, and just removing the Targetable Legs, I was able to obtain the Firebug Throttle V2.0 weapon.
        If someone can either confirm that is indeed the case, or alternatively clarify if the rear leg during the second phase can take damage at all, and I may have accidently hit it - thus; "destroying" it. That would be appreciated. Otherwise, I will attempt to do so on NG+.
        I used a hammer for its dash and downwards slam attack.

          "During the first he really only has 2 attacks" - that's just bs. It has the spin, the leg out, the sit on you, the jump completely out of sight and land on you and even shoots some energy bolts if you don't engage in close combat for a while. Also, don't be fooled by the existence of columns here, it's a trap as they don't block any of its attacks, apparently its legs are able to pass cleanly through concrete and steel (!). If you focus it's slightly easier to avoid than the 1st boss except for that jump up attack which throws it so high in the air you can't even see it so it's impossible to predict where it lands. I also can't seem to be able to target specific body parts (glitch?). Unnecessarily frustrating fight.

            Has many attacks. One of which is unblockable, instant kill, and has a single direction you can correctly dodge, directly toward it. It has to be an iframe dodge. It's just got a low chance to occur.

              Phase one, Remove the lock on, or switch target after it does a crazy spin, most likely the leg you want is somewhere else, and you will miss or have an off aim. just aim for a closer leg. It's best to focus on one leg at a time, it will heal itself if you don't go all the way and sever the leg. Don't stay under it for long, or it will sit on you and deal great damage. A slide attack, then escape is good. You can cut it a little more if you have a fast weapon.

                Just as a note, while I was playing against this boss, my game glitched the boss into thinking it had all its arms cut off, even though it still had one attached. As a result, I got the firebug throttle v2.0 with one arm still "attached."
