- Location: Earth , Sunken Passage, The Grinder
- The Boss may not spawn in your play-through, and you will need to re-roll the Campaign or Adventure mode to attempt to get it.
Mobility is key with this battle. You will want to pay close attention to your surroundings, and run when required.
Gorefist has a multitude of wide swings and high damage sweeps.
You will want to keep your spacing and stay just out of his blade's reach.
Commonly, Gorefist will chase you with a charging attack, dodging to the side just before the attack hits you tends to be the most effective method of avoiding this attack.
Getting close to Gorefist tends to bait out a horizontal slash, this, if the hit is taken or avoided while still in range, will usually be followed up with a powerful vertical slice downwards.
However he will, on occasion, prefer the vertical slice as the opening attack.
When Gorefist is enraged, he will active his Mantle of Thorns, which reduces his taken melee damage by 200% and causes melee strikes to send damaging spikes back towards the attacker, avoid using melee for this time, because eventually his rage will subside.
However, once this rage has begun, 2 Rot Warts will spawn and aggressively sprint towards the nearest player, and they will explode once in range, and then 2 more after a short delay.
Another note about the rage form, Gorefist will use a new 3 hit combo of a swing from the left, followed by a swing from the right, and ends in a strong overhead slam. This combo is exclusive to his Mantle of Thorns form.

Gorefist Notes & Trivia
The mechanics of Gorefist's summoning of Rot Warts was changed with the Swamps of Corsus update. The ads now appear only when Gorefist activates its Mantle of Thorns, and instead of spawning 2-3 at random, he spawns 2 initially and 2 more after a delay.
