How To Beat The Huntsman - Boss Fight Tips & Tricks

Defeat Security Officers First

Defeat Security Officers First

When you encounter The Huntsman, you'll have to go through a series of Security Officers first. Before you attack him, make sure to clear your path to avoid being overwhelmed by too many foes.

Uses Baton & Shield To Attack

Uses Baton & Shield To Attack

The Huntsman mainly uses his electric baton and shield to attack you. He'll hit you with the baton & push you away with his large riot shield to do damage.

Use Guard To Protect & Counter

It's better to guard against The Huntsman's attacks rather than dodge. There is some gap between his attacks, allowing you to successfully block them and release a counter of your own.

Counter To Stagger & Deal Heavy Damage

Counter To Stagger & Deal Heavy Damage

To deal heavy damage on him, make sure to guard then counter his attack. Once The Huntsman is staggered, switch to Punisher mode to do 160% more damage.

Use Abilities From Behind

Huntsman

The Huntsman fight is not particularly different from Normal mode. The key will be to refrain from attacking his shield head on! Simply block, wait for him to attack, dodge to the side and hit him from behind with fire attacks or abilities like Braver, Focused Thrust, and Triple Slash. Just be patient and play slowly!

Manuscript Reward

For defeating the Huntsman on hard mode, you'll get the Art of Swordplay Vol. IV, which gives SP to Cloud.
