Wendigo - Boss Battle Tips

Has High Resistance to Elemental Damage

Has High Resistance to Elemental Damage

The Wendigo has high resistance against fire and corrosive damage. This means your weapons with these elements won't be able to deal as much damage as they should when used against the boss.

Shoot It when It's On Platforms

Shoot It when It

During the fight, the Wendigo will go to higher ground for a brief period. You can still damage it from up there with your weapons so take the opportunity to deal damage against it.

Shoot Its Exposed Belly

Shoot Its Exposed Belly

When it's on platforms, there's a chance that it can rear up and show its belly, which is its weakspot. Focus on it and if you deal enough damage, it will fall to the ground and be incapacitated for a few seconds.

Dodge Sideways During Rush Attack

Dodge Sideways During Rush Attack

Head to your left or your right when you see the Wendigo rearing a charge towards you. You can also trick it into hitting its head on a fallen rock and incapacitate it.
