Harsgaard Strategies

Strategy Writeup

Phase 1

During Phase 1 you want to keep as close to the walls as possible and run in circles around hit as you shoot him. Take as many shoots as you can and when he fires the projectiles run away from the beams to re-position.

When he spawns the red balls try to remain still and only move if a ball is about to hit you. If you stay near the walls you'll have plenty of space to maneuver

Once you drop his health down to 50% he will grow two arms and Phase 2 will begin

Phase 2

During Phase two he will start chasing you across the battlefield. Try to stay at a medium distance and keep an eye on him. His shockwave attack is hard to avoid so try to run left or right when he is about to perform it. When he attacks you melee focus on dodging his attacks to prevent the damage.

Once you defeat him a cinematic will play where you acquire the Fusion Rifle and a second boss fight will begin against Harsgaard, Root Harbinger.

*Note that if you die you'll have to face both Hasgaard and Harsgaard, Root Harbinger again.

Attacks & Counters

Attack Counter
Phase 1
Beam Attack: The stones will project a beam that slowly moves in a 360 degree angle. If you get hit you will die Keep moving to avoid the beam. Make sure you are not hit by it
Mesh Attack: The stones will form a mesh that moves outwards in stages If you stay near the walls this attack won't reach you
Projectiles: He will cast projectiles from his back that will land on you after a short period of time Wait for a second after he fires and then roll forward to avoid the attack
Phase 2
Projectiles: He will cast projectiles from his back that will land on you after a short period of time Wait for a second after he fires and then roll forward to avoid the attack
Shockwave: He will slam the ground creating a shockwave that moves toward the player. Try to run left or right when he is moving his arms up. If you don't manage to get away in time perform a roll to avoid the damage
Hug Attack: When Melee, he can jump forward and perform a wide strike with both arms You can prevent the damage by performing a timed roll just before he hits you
Three Hit Combo: He will perform a quick three hit combo while moving forward He moves while performing the attack, so you'll need to roll to avoid all three attacks

        To retry the fight, you have to use the breach then interact with the portal while all whispy... good luck on your 2nd try, btw i used Devastator + Void set + Bloodletter insignia, makes the fight a total joke lol

          I cannot retry fight after my first death. Tried switching realms with the thing to destroy blockages, portal just disappears. anyone know a workaround or do i really have to reroll campaign after one attempt? :/

            Easy-peasy on Apocalypse, first stage was even harder (cause of hugs, use adrenaline)

            My setup (credits and special thanks to random Anonymous under Leto's Armor):

            Leto's Armor Set
            Ricochet Gun + Fan of Knives (mega power generation)
            Machine Pistol + Swarm (to more dmg)
            Razorvine Necklace, Alchemist Jewel(muuuuch better than Agressor's Bane), Bloodletter's Insignia
            PS: And do't forget about Triage trait(its very important to mega life-leech)

              As a final boss, I find him a little lacking. The fight is more about positioning yourself at right place at the right time rather than dodging and spacing like most of the game's content.

              Iskal Queen is still the toughest boss in the game and Gorefist is the best waifu.

              Wait, I think I got a little confused...

                Second phase is so much harder than any of the other bosses I've faced in this game (still on my first playthrough, so I haven't seen em all). It's so hard to see what attack is coming next when you're trying to find a moment to land shots. About a dozen deaths in, and actually regret not playing through on Normal first.

                  Completely broken boss fight. It's laggy as hell, frames drop to zero at least 30 times per fight. Not to mention, the fusion rifle is completely terrible, why is it force equipped going into the second phase? It's absolutely awful.

                    The game is super laggy during this fight even offline despite the game running perfectly fine before this even with players on the other side of the world. Seriously Im in America and pop lay we d with people in Britain and had a perfectly smooth game but the second I step foot in the boss it starts lagging. Absolute Bull****
