At some point prior to 1998-2001, Lupino became addicted to [[Valkyr]] and became clearly insane; worshiping various devils from many myths and believing that he was a wolf and a messenger of Hell. He began to read many mythology and gothic books related to devils and demons and made rituals based on these books. He became so mentally unstable that he blew one of his thug's brains out only because he wanted to see what they would look like on the wall.

Max arrived at Lupino's hotel, only to have found the Finitos in charge and Jack not there. Seeing no other way, Max killed the Finito brothers after they attempt to shoot him dead. Max also killed [[Rico Muerte]] and [[Candy Dawn]], who were staying in the hotel during Payne's time of investigation. Due to his state and other businesses, Lupino had placed Vinnie Gognitti in charge for a Valkyr trade deal. After the deaths of the Finitos and Rico, Lupino's tenement building was blown up by [[Vladimir Lem]], head of the rival [[Russian Mob]].

After defeating Gognitti, Max went to Ragna Rock. Max fought his way against Lupino's goons and bodyguard. During his way in the club, Max finds many of Lupino's devilish books and rituals, as well the letter sent by the don. After Max read one of Lupino's ritual books, the madman howled and yelled in the club, unsuccessfully sending more goons to kill the detective.

Lupino then finally revealed himself, along with two more bodyguards. After saying strange quotes related to Satanist beliefs, Lupino attacked Max with his powerful [[Sawed-Off Shotgun|sawed-off shotgun]]. The detective managed to kill the insane underboss' remaining men; after a while, Lupino was killed as well.

After Lupino fell, Max shot him multiple times, to make sure that the monstrous drug dealer was truly dead. He kept shooting him until he was stopped by an [[Mona Sax|unknown woman]].

*[[Sawed-Off Shotgun]] - a powerful short-ranged shotgun that can fire two rounds at once. This is Lupino's signature weapon, and he uses it during his last stand against Max Payne. The main disadvantage of this weapon is that it needed to be reloaded constantly, due to its small magazine.

Lupino is surrounded by cultists wielding shotguns, [[Molotov Cocktail]]s, and [[Ingrams]]. Keep moving and keep firing with a cool head. Despite his somewhat intimidating demeanor, Lupino himself is probably the easiest boss in the game; he uses a [[Sawed-Off Shotgun|sawed-off shotgun]] and, after he fires his first two shots, he is completely open to any sort of attack. It is possible to even bludgeon him to death easily with a [[Baseball Bat|baseball bat]]. Every time he is hit while he is reloading, he is forced to start his reloading animation over again. To sum it up, kill his henchmen, dodge his first two shots, then finish him off with the weapon of choice.

Max loses all his weapons after his fight with Lupino. Therefore, ammo conservation should not be required when fighting him.
