The Hunter is an enemy in Remnant: From the Ashes. Hunter belongs to an enemy race called The Root. Enemies are hostile creatures that inhabit the different realms that you'll encounter, each enemy that is seen is unique by its appearance and set of attacks. Killing a basic enemy drops common items while elite enemies drop rare items upon death.


Hunter Inforamtion

It will approach with its weapons up, acting as a shield. this seems to stop all attacks from harming it. You must wait until it attacks and opens itself up to be able to hurt it.

Hunter Lore

Don’t see Hunters much anymore, not unless you’re lost some place the deadwood don’t want you. They mostly guard the old rusted places. They’re blind, but don’t let that fool you. I’ve seen Hunters cut down well-armed men pouring lead into ‘em. Hunters don’t care. They just keep on fightin’.


Hunter Notes & Tips

  • While its swords are up and crossed it cannot be hurt. It is advised to run and roll past it to bait it to attack, then shoot it to deal damage.
  • It attacks up to 5 times in quick succession when in melee range. The attacks are generally an almost 360 degree spin or a frontal cone slashing with both blades at once.
  • Is Vulnerable to attacks from behind if in Co-Op.

      Melee is too risky. To deal with this rascal rather use some obstacles that force him to lower his guard due to climbing over it. He is slow and you can kill other enemies with some shooting while moving around. When playing solo it is very difficult to shoot his back so do not count on it. But it is definitely possible.

        Elemental attacks seem to go through his guard- swarm, flamethrower, idk what else. I don't want to use stormcaller in case he decides to rush me lmao

          Easy solo strat: Equip the coach gun, let him get close, and just blast him when he starts his attack animation. If you're quick enough, you can shoot him twice and stagger him, and by the time he attacks you again, you'll be reloaded. Repeat until dead.

            Something interesting to note is the Swarm mod will damage him despite him having his guard up. Simple activate and backpedal for easy damage

                I'm not sure if I just got lucky, but I was able to "stealth" my way through the first dungeon without spawning him. The ball dudes were dying in 1 or 2 melee hits for me so I did that pretty much the whole dungeon. (I was not scrapper so no innate melee damage buff)

                  Annoying enemy and it bugged. Sometimes it start to attack you non stop until you die. Each his attack stagger you so if he hit you once you dead.

                    This guy is the main reason I hate the sewer dungeons. Not so much because of how tough he is but because he always spawns BEHIND you, and the "Elite Enemy chime" doesn't sound until YOU spot HIM. It always makes me really paranoid about traversing the sewers, turning around every few minutes to see if it's following me.

                      I just had this guy show up 3 separate times in the same life in the first dungeon, talk about hard, especially with all the little ball dude showing up, luckily I was close enough the the exit of that area of that area I just ran man.

                        just fought him a second time in 5 minutes in the first dungeon. Is this guy supposed to be like the regenerator from Dead Space?

                          Initially I had a lot of trouble with this enemy solo. The key I found to defeating him was to use the environment. Whenever I tried to straight up fight him, I would lose. If he ever has to climb up or down he drops his blade shield for a moment. Using a shotgun, you can typically hit him twice during this which staggers him and lets you get another set of shots up. In places where I couldn't get him to jump up or down, I was able to get an elevation change so that he has to walk with his back towards you to get to me.

                            I stand in front of him and wait for the attack animation to start, then I shoot him. Worked great with the Coach Gun.
