Focus on Interrupting The Riftstalker

There are plenty of opportunities to interrupt the Riftstalker, mainly whenever he comes out of his portal. Weapons like the Axe and Hammer are great for interrupting. Practice the timing well, and you'll open up huge damage opportunities for the team.

Increase Overpower Damage

Overpower improves damage on staggered Behemoths, and that includes the interrupted state. This Behemoth relatively has a lower health than others, so you'll be able to take it out fast.

Dangerous Moves & How To Boop

Lunging Claw Swipe

Lunging Claw Swipe

This attack is pretty fast and hard to telegraph up close. It will perform this attack by lowering its body, and pounce on a Slayer right in front of it.

Tail Swipe

Tail Swipe

Another easy to miss move, pay attention when its surrounded. Once it roars, dodge away as the roar will immediately be followed by the tail swipe.

Six Portals Attack

Six Portals Attack

These portals will shoot out Umbral projectiles. These can be easily dodged or move behind it, however, you must take avoid crossing over these portals as the floor below it will cause the Corruption status which deals damage over time and slows down your speed until you attack the Riftstalker.

Pocket Dimension Rift

Pocket Dimension Rift

It will burrow itself through a dimensional tear and drag all slayers into a small tight space. This is followed by a series of other devastating attacks. Beware of stepping towards the outer bounds as it can cause Corruption status as well.

Umbral Clone Claw Swipes

Inside this pocket dimension, he will send Umbral clones towards you from all open portals. These clones will perform the claw swipe.

Umbral Projectiles

It will also send out Umbral projectiles from open portals, so simply focus on dodging when you this move.

Enraged Rush Attack

Enraged Rush Attack

When enraged, the Riftstalker will create two portals and charge up its speed by falling through it over and over. It will then shoot out from a random portal and will cause a significant damage when hit. Focus on evading and running away during this phase.

Hide Behind Or Stand On A Rock

During this phase since the priority is to avoid this attack at all costs, simply hide behind a rock to avoid getting hit by this attack. Standing on a rock also works since the attack comes out at ground level.

Interruption & Boop Opportunities

 Interruption & Boop Opportunities

The Riftstalker offers plenty of opportunities for booping or interrupting, mostly whenever its coming out from the portal. A well timed heavy attack can interrupt the Riftstalker as it comes out of a portal. Never do this on his enraged state though as you'd risk taking on lethal damage.

Concussive Grenades Can Boop

Whenever the Riftstalker comes out of a portal, he can be interrupted with a concussive grenade. This is handy for Chain Blade or Repeater wielders as their attacks cannot interrupt by default. However, the timing for this can be challenging as you will be locked out from dodging while using grenades.

Look for Bright Portal in Dimensional Rift to Boop

 Look for Bright Portal in Dimensional Rift

When dragged into its dimensional rift, watch out for the portal that lights up in pink. This is where the real Riftstalker will appear from. Use a heavy attack to disrupt him.
