The first thing you need is a strong build by the time you reach the stage where Dreadnought is, so you should aim to overclock your weapons and not waste upgrades. This will help you deal a ton of damage and defeat enemy mobs faster.

Once the Dreadnought appears, you have to maintain a safe distance to avoid his close-range attack. The annoying thing about Dreadnought is its dash attack, where he quickly jumps towards the player, and if it hits, it's gonna take more than half of your health.

To avoid that attack, run sideways when Dreadnought takes a pause and prepares for that attack. When you move sideways, the Dreadnought will not be able to cover for that, and you will not get any damage at all.

Lastly, don't get the supply drop in the last stage and instead use it to one-shot Dreadnought. To do that, you have to clear the landing area for the supply drop and bait Dreadnought there. Try to stay in the area of the supply drop and use Dreadnought's jump attack to get him in the middle where the supply drop will come.
