After his main shield is down, he’ll start summoning some structures with a green glow. You can shoot those down for supplies. In this stage of the fight, you want to focus on shooting at him and dodging his attacks. Keep shooting his glass-like shield with all you’ve got. The gluon gun and the rocket launcher are your best bets here.

At some point, he’ll summon some yellow crystal pillars. As soon as he does, focus on destroying them. You’ll only be able to destroy one at a time. Keep shooting him and his shield to make him summon the yellow crystals. Keep dodging and shooting him until you destroy all the yellow crystals.
