How To Use Krauser
Use The Knife Most Of The Time
Krauser's attack with the Knife is very powerful. It is a lot easier to use to defeat enemies than the TMP so if it's a close combat duel, use the knife. The knife's durability is infinite so you do not have to worry about it breaking.
Set Your Knife Then Attack By Pressing L1
Before fighting make sure to set your knife by pressing L1. If you don't then it will make swinging motions making it harder for you to defeat the enemies, while when you do set then it will make smaller swift motions which will hit the enemies effectively.
Make Sure To Keep Your Eyes On The Enemy
Krauser's moves are very fast and when you are swinging your knife there is a chance you will lose sight of your enemy. Due to this there is a chance you won't be able to get combos, so make sure you are keeping an eye out of your enemies so you can consecutively battle.
Flash Grenades On Powerful Enemies To Flinch And Defeat
For Chainsaw Villagers and Brute, use the flash grenade to make them flinch so you can attack them with Melee or the knife. Especially the Chainsaw Villager's attack is an instant kill, so if you are attacking with just the knife then there will be chances where you can't avoid its attack.
Can Use Bow To Defeat Several Enemies
Krauser's special Compound Bow is designed to shoot bomb arrows which will explode when hit, which is strong against defeating several enemies at a time. You are able to fight with a distance, so it is useful against enemies that are far away to defeat with the knife.
Destroy Gunpowder Barrels In The Castle With Bow or TMP
At the Castle stage, there will be Fire Balls flying around from the machine. If you are hit then you will be inflicted with damage so take care of it with the bow or TMP as soon as possible.
No Need To Gather Much Orbs
When you defeat enemies with the knife, with each enemy defeated, the time will be increased by 4 secs. Even if you don't gather orbs, you will be able to complete on time so there is no need to gather orbs in a rush. If you want a high score, then pick them up with you have the chance.
Mayhem Mode - Effects & How To Use
Can Mutate Forms
Krauser's Mayhem Mode will allow him to mutate both of his arms and attack with them. The attack range is large, and if it is villagers or Zealots then you can defeat them with a single blow.
2 Types Of Attacks Possible
Thrust Attack and Close-Quarter Attack is possible. With the PlayStation 4 and 5, if you use L2 and press R2 then you will be able to thrust attack. But using the thrust attack, the gage will shorten faster so if you are running out of combos and want to defeat an enemy in the far, then use this move.
Speed Will Decrease A Lot
Using mutation, you will not be able to run and will only be able to walk. Even if you are surrounded there is no problem fighting, but if the enemies are far then it is a waste of time so make sure to use this when you are in a closed area.
Useful Against Powerful Enemies
During mutation, your powers are very strong so it is useful to defeat powerful enemies. Even if you don't attack Garrador's weakness Back, you will still be able to defeat it.
