*When the Widow falls, there will be a long delay between her teleporting away and returning in her second form. Use this time well to collect ammo (mainly Cells) and health. It would be useful to let off one more BFG shot after she teleports to clear away any Stalkers without wasting this time between fights. Once the player has collected relevant health and ammo, await by the big red doors for the Widow to come crashing out in her second, more powerful form. Stay behind the poles alot, due to her plasma attack. If your a dare devil stay right behind the pole next to the red door and then, kill her. Otherwise, stay away from the red door.

* Especially if you are playing on Hard difficulty, you will ''not'' want to use up your most powerful weapons and powerups on her first form, as her second form is considerably more powerful. So if you have [[Quad Damage (Q2)|quad damage]] or full Cells for your BFG, save them for her second form, and try to rely on your next-tier weapons for her first, weaker form: namely, your [[Railgun (Q2)|railgun]], and perhaps double damage if you have it. Lay down fire towards her with the railgun until she teleports away for her second form. (Tested by anonymous and it takes 5 shots on easy, 5 shots on medium, and 7 shots on hard.)

*If you play on hard, or hard+ difficulty and use [[Quad Damage (Q2)|Quad Damage]], [[Double Damage]], or [[Invulnerability (Q2)|Invulnerability]] Power-ups, she will copy them. For example, using invulnerability will cause her to become invulnerable as well. Therefore, invulnerability is pretty much useless here, but you will likely still want to use your quad and double damage powerups in order to kill her more quickly while, of course, becoming proficient at dodging ''her'' attacks.

*On hard+ difficulty The Black Widow has additional protective shield (like Daedalus, or Medic commander have) which enlarges her already enormous HP.
