Many parts of the map will now be accessible using the Crank item. Gather materials & ammo to stockpile for future battles.

Get The M1851 Magnum

The M1851 Mangum has extremely high single-shot damage and can be obtained in this area, so you'll want to get your hands on it!

Challenge Mini-Bosses For More Rewards

While optional, players can take on mini-bosses at Otto's Mill & Fields. If you've got the ammo to spare, take them out for extra Treasures. One of these is the Werewolf, Varcolac Alfa, though he might be too much to handle if you're on your first playthrough.

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

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.

▲ You can knock down multiple enemies if you use the bomb effectively

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.
