Code Vein How to Beat Skull King

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 Skull King

Location: Gaol of the Stagnant Blood.

  • Gregorio Silva transformed into something far more deadly: a giant, beat-like creature with the head of a wolf.
  • Carrying two, large, golden blades, and having two, gigantic, metallic wolf heads sprouting from his back, this is one of the toughest boss fights in the entire series. This fight is not optional.
  • He will begin the battle by lunging at you from a distance at tremendous speed. Dodge out of the way and get a hit in. He will follow this up with a 3-hit combo that you must dodge.
  • He may then jab you with one of his blades or leap forward and attack you with both weapons. If he tries to jab you, roll to the side if he leaps forward then roll towards him. He moves at incredible speeds so always be ready for an attack.
  • When you see red energy beginning to swirl around him, it means you should get away as he will unleash a burst of energy that will take the form of a twister; it will last only for a second.
  • At this point, he will do a new kind of attack where he will swing both blades from the same side and then bring one down from above. Dodge in the direction the attack is coming from then dodge to either side.
  • All the while attacking between every interval. In phase 2, his combos will involve more sweeping attacks that cover a large area, so getting away is not much of an option, nor is blocking.
  • Try to roll towards him or in the direction of where the attack is coming from.
  • He may do more lunges or cross slashes; all-in-all, he is far more aggressive and dangerous in this phase. Whenever the wolves on his back appear, it’s a sign that he’s about to charge forward, so be ready to roll or strafe out of the way.
  • He will cycle through these attacks, be mindful of every action and attack whenever possible. You can receive the Argent Wolf King’s Blade for defeating the Skull King.
