Code Vein How to Beat Gilded Hunter

Code Vein features many interesting and unique bosses, all of which must be beaten in order to progress the story. All of these are lost, powerful but malicious, and feature a set of moves that are unique to them. With large health bars, memorable designs, and even fascinating lore surrounding them, these bosses are one of the many highlights of Code Vein.

Bosses in Code Vein do not respawn after being beaten, however, you are likely to encounter them again when exploring dungeons, so be prepared for the possibility of facing them again and again.

How to Beat Gilded Hunter

Location: Ashen Cavern.

  • A golden warrior bearing a large weapon, a red cape, and exuding the aura of a true warrior. This will be an exceedingly difficult boss but beating it will unlock a new achievement.
  • He will charge and teleport at you, thrusting his weapon, or he might stand before you, leaping or swinging his weapon with fervor. You must dodge out of the way, never towards him.
  • It’s not so much the damage per hit you must worry about but how many hits you can actually afford to take. He’s very fast and dodging him may be a problem.
  • To counter this, you must bait him out as much as possible and control the flow of combat, punishing him for every miss.
  • He’ll eventually resort to an overhead slam that releases energy in the vicinity; get away from him when he does so, or dodge into it to reach him and punish him – this one is risky as a poorly timed roll could cost you.
  • He’ll begin to throw red projectiles at you; roll back to dodge the first one but roll forward to dodge the second and to give yourself an opening to attack.
  • In phase 2, his attacks are mostly the same but he is far more aggressive, leaving you very little room to retaliate. You must block his attacks as many times as you dodge.
  • When he attempts to do his overhead AoE slam, use your healing items as it’ll be the only time to do so.
  • This aggression is short-lived, fortunately, therefore, the only objective is to stay alive rather than to hurt him. Once he’s out of it, he’ll stagger for a bit to give you time to attack.
  • Do as much damage as possible as he’ll go berserk once he’s composed himself.
