Get Through Safely & Quickly
Going deeper into the Stronghold will lead to a section where enemies spawn endlessly. Don't focus on defeating them all - just try to get out as quickly and safely as you possibly can.
Use The Gunpowder Barrels
By shooting the gunpowder barrels in this area, you can deal a lot of damage to nearby enemies. This is a really efficient way of dealing with these enemies, so make use of it!
Shotgun & Pipe Bombs Are Effective
In terms of weapons, you'll want to use the Shotgun, as it can deal a lot of burst damage effectively in close range. Also, the Pipe Bomb works really well at giving you a window to escape while enemies are knocked down.
Hide Behind Pillars For The Urias Fight
Urias's attack animations are quite exaggerated and leave quite an opening after the attack, so you should have a window to hit him. Use the 3 pillars in the area as cover and pop out from behind them to deal damage.
