▼ Jump To Radahn's Attack Patterns & How To Avoid

Understand Radahn's Behavior Patterns

The behavior pattern of Radahn changes according to its remaining HP. The lower the remaining HP, the more powerful the attacks. Your character will most likely die instantly, so it is necessary to refrain from any direct attacks and change the turn around depending on allies and status conditions.

Behavioral Patterns To Watch Out For

Remaining HP 75%When Lightning is twined to the sword, a shock wave attack is added
Remaining HP 50%Radahn disappears and crashes down in a meteor, gaining 4 Lightning charged-meteorites it can use to launch at any direction

Starscourge Radahn Walkthrough Procedure

Phase 1 Attack Pattern (75% HP And Above)

① Summon Allies While Avoiding Long-Range Arrows With Obstacles

Three arrows will be shot from a considerable distance at the start so to avoid these, make sure to use barriers and dodge them. Meanwhile, gather allies around you.

② Switch To Riding A Horse To Avoid Scattered Arrows

① Later, change to riding your Horse to avoid the scattered arrows that track you for some time. During this time, if you go near Radahn early, it will target you, so approach it with summoned allies.

③ A Long-Distance Charged Arrow Attack Comes After A Rain Of Arrows

After avoiding the scattered arrows from ②, get off the horse and focus on dodging to avoid the long-distance arrow attacks. At this time, there are more attacks that are hard to avoid while riding the Horse, so it's safer to get off the horse at this stage.

④ Attack Behind When You Are Not The Target

Attack from behind when Radahn's target is directed to a summoned ally. If you do not take advantage of this chance to attack, your summoned allies will die before you can cut Radahn's HP into half, and it will be almost impossible to play, so be careful. Depending on the target of Radahn, there is also a driving element of luck.

Phase 2 Attack Pattern (75% HP)

① Avoid Meteorites Attack On Horse

If Radahn's sword is charged with Lightning, it is proof that Radahn's HP has dropped below 75%. Attacks up to 50% HP remain generally the same, but since the attack patterns will increase, let's switch smoothly between riding a Horse and evading on foot.

Phase 3 Attack Pattern (HP 50%)

① Avoid Meteorite Attacks By Riding A Horse

When Radahn's HP drops below 50%, he disappears from the area and come falling back in a meteorite. Make sure to look up in the sky and check the direction of the meteor then switch back to riding a Horse to run sideways against the meteorite.

② Summon Allies As You Roam Around

Depending on the battle style, it is often the case that allies can be revived again after a meteorite attack. After avoiding meteorites, summon your allies and go around.

③ Take Time To Escape While Allies Gets Attacked

When HP drops below 50%, instant death attacks are frequently performed, so it is important to go around without being attacked by even one shot. Especially when fighting in close proximity, the risk of being hit is high, so concentrate on avoiding it and have your allies cut it.

[Extra] Rock Sling

Drink a Flask of Wondrous Physick that was mixed with Cerulean Hidden Tear, and quickly cut with Rock Sling. This is a tactic to reduce chances of getting hit in both ranged and melee battles.
