Obryk, the Shield Warden Strategies

Strategy Writeup

Obryk is very aggressive and can deal heavy physical damage. Given his proximity to you during the fight, mods like Corrosive Aura can prove useful. Despite his relentless attacks, Obryk has long telegraphs that players will quickly recognise and a timely dodge will open a window for charged melee attacks. 

Try to stay away from him and wait until he rushes towards you. Avoid his attacks and then keep shooting.

Once he Enrages stay away from him to prevent the Frost damage. Having Spiceroot can help you.

You can destroy his mask if you deal enough damage. This will reveal his head (weakspot)

You can destroy the wooden structures across the battlefield to gather Ammo

      2nd phase is bugged. Running coop and sometimes he would stand there for a good second enraged. Till finally he got enraged and just sat there and waited for us to kill him.

        Holly crap, this one was infuriating at first. The fact he can stun-lock you and beat you to death is just lazy design. I mean come on, on some tries you don't even get to make a single mistake.

        Having said that, once you do get into his rythm, he's quite easy to overcome.

        My setup for this "fellow":
        Weapon: Hunting Rifle
        Mod: Fan of Knives
        Armor set: Hunter's Armor
        Amulet: Razorwire Necklace
        Ring1: Bloodletter's Insignia
        Ring2: Ring of Evasion

        The weapon Mod + Amulet + Ring1 work in tandem to both bleed that a-hole and give you back some health. The Evasion ring comes in handy to give you a bigger window to avoid getting hit and thus stun-locked. Especially good against that frost wave of spikes he does as you can dodge it even by doing so backwards.

          piece of poorly design **** rat of a boss.

          Attacks that knock you into a lengthy recovery animation, which he can follow up with more such attacks which also knock you down, so get hit once? pray to RNGesus that you get a chance to keep playing.

          A 'weak point' that isn't (I hit that mask with 30+ hunting rifle +15 shots, and it did not break.

          can obscure vision while also having a poorly telegraphed attack (especially in the mist) which knocks down over a VERY wide radius (and which can then be followed up by any of the aforementioned combos.

          Stupid, stupid design.

            He is not an easy boss but neither impossible. the secret is to delay your dodges and deal damage with fire mod and bleed. It is very easy to learn your move set.

              So this boss is probably one of the easiest bosses once you know his moveset, because all his moves are super easy to read. The first time I got him was with Vicious on Apocalypse, which meant every hit was insta death, using the 1 shot sniper/hunting pistol build with Hunter set. Slayer set would be better as his Helmet takes way too long to take off, in my case I tested it and only once got it of while doing half his HP on apocalyspe with almost only headshots which dealt like 85% reduced damage, so its not worth. Thats why I went for Burden of the gambler, Empowering loop and gunslinger amulet as amulet. Mods I used were Corrosive aura and Hunters mark

              MOVESET SPOILER

              His attacks are all really telegraphed and almost all his attacks are very easy to dodge.
              His 1 stage is simple and he has a few moves
              1 - When you're close he throws a punch, if you are still close after the first he throws a 2nd punch.
              2 - He screams and runs at you and goes for a jump slam
              3 - he doesn't scream and runs at you and goes for punch, followed by a jump slam
              4 - He throws a Smokescreen, Jumps at you with a decently delayed punch, and retreats. This is his most dangerous attack because the delay on the punch is sometimes hard to read, and dodging too early will result in getting hit.

              Around 60-70% HP ge goes enraged, doing a huge AOE attack that deals frost damage, much like Riptides AOE rings, but faster. I suggest doging sideways, or if you are far away, towards him, as dodging backwards puts you in the attack and hits you unless really well timed. His moveset stays the same except for 3 things
              1 - He has a small 1.5-2 meter aura around him that deal frost damage overtime. This can be avoided by staying out of range and for certain attacks dodging a bit earlier to stay out of this range, but not too early so he hits you after you dodge.
              2 - The smokescreen turns into an AOE attack, the same that he used to trigger his raged mode. There will still be a huge smokescreen and he will still follow up with a jump with a delayed punch or a 3 hit combo. Now instead of always retreating, sometimes he doesn't and just starts walking at you.
              3 - After the AOE, instead of just the delayed punch, he turns it into a 3 hit combo. The delayed punch, another quick punch, and a slightly delayed jump slam. This is his most dangerous attack because he doesnt telegraph if it's gonna be a 3 hit combo, or a normal punch (into retreat). If he does the AOE and goes for the punch, I suggest always dodging a 2nd time after you dodged the punch to dodge the potential 3 hit combo.

              I heard his combo's can stagger you to death, I didn't have that problem as he one shot me anyway, but as his attacks are all decently easy to dodge and really really telegraphed, this is in my eyes not a problem.
              The AOE attack on Vicious Apocalypse one shotted me, but did not one shot me with spiceroot, so on all other difficulties, it should not, and probably wouldn't one shot without spiceroot either

                  Really dumb that he can just spam attacks and hit you while grounded or standing up so you are basically stun locked to death

                      I rolled this guy with regeneration as my first boss in Survival with no mods to speak of. Even with mods and a good weapon, he's a cursed boss. Not worth the challenge because the way he fights does not fit the game.

                      • Anonymous

                        He's a giant rat. Target his legs/feet you ninnies. Regular yellow/red damage with a crossbow and hotshot. Hunters mark to help with that bullsh*t fog.

                          Annoying boss on Hard. Felt very unforgiving. It took me a lot of tries to kill him.
                          Managed to kill him with the following gear.

                          Full scrapper armor +10
                          Spitfire +5
                          Shotgun +15 - Swarm mod
                          Cleansing jewel
                          Stockpile ring (Didn't really need this)
                          Keeper's ring

                          Keep 3 stacks of burning on him as much as you can.
                          Use Swarm on cooldown.
                          Neutral dodge his attacks. (Dodge without pressing a movement key)
                          Run away when he enrages.
                          You can usually heal when he jumps back into his frost cloud.

                            This Boss made me uninstall. I really had fun with this game until this one. He's a damn cakewalk every time until he's almost dead and goes completely ape ****. I'm done.

                              Fun fact, you actually CAN'T break his helmet. I managed to kill him by only shooting at it and it never broke, I just wasted 12 minutes dealing 5 damage per shot until he died of boredom. Maybe it requires a lot of damage in a single hit, regardless I wasn't using a weapon that hit very hard so I guess if you want to deal weakpoint damage use the sniper rifle, as it's the only weapon in the game capable of doing enough single-shot damage to maybe break it. I don't know I never tried.

                                  When you see him jump at you just remember, he will rotate in mid air to land on your character to punish your early roll. It looks stupid as **** and yet they kept it in the game.

                                    Did him on hard and he was... Ok. Was running void and twisted idol for max armor and medium rolls... Didn't find his attacks too punishing, and they are all super well telegraphed. Bring an elemental gun and just go for bodysuits.

                                      My advice is to not try to aim for the head or any weakspot on him.

                                      When his shield is down, aim for the belly because it has zero armor; when his shield is up, he will dug his head down and an unarmored part of his back will be exposed. His attacks are not very hard to dodge, except for the insanely delayed, heat-seeking jumping slam attack; however, they are very punishing because most (maybe all) of them will knock you down and he will kill you while you're on the ground.

                                      I fought him on HARD, with Ossesus set + Beam Rifle + Hive Cannon, either +19 or +20. The Beam Rifle shredded through his first phase in 10s by beaming at his belly. The Hive Cannon is also very effective because the explosion + the mod power can hit through his armor; and the explosion can stagger him very frequently.

                                        Frozen mist isn't worth this fight. Hell much of the games bosses aren't worth fighting for what they drop.
                                        Players that like this game like the feeling of being ass pounded over and over until they figure out how to do the pounding.
                                        This fight? It's one of those you just get ass pounded to varying degrees and barely get through if you're well timed.

                                        The developers designed this boss to be gear dependant. You can't go in with anything and expect to win.
                                        Elements, mods and statuses are your friend here as you will NEVER touch his weak spot.

                                          WORST.BOSS.DESIGN.EVER. Bring a friend if you don't want to rip out all your hair and waste your time.
                                          100% pure cancer. Not only he's extremely tough due to the fact he hides behind his shields most of the time, you either have to try to break his helmet to do weak spot dmg or have a crit build ready. Not only that but he likes to chain his attacks together and you CAN NOT recover/get back up fast enough to dodge; making him essentially almost a 1 hit kill boss. Unlike other bosses where you died, it's mostly your fault and you can always improve to do better, Obyk feels like a very cheap boss fight design to piss you off

                                            Worst boss ever designed. Has imdectructable armor blocking his weak point, insane damage resist l, is the most aggressive boss in the game and attacks so fast you have no chance to recover.

                                              Using the spitfire's flamethrower ability and keeping him on 3 stacks is really easy. Explosives also deal full damage through armor e.g. Explosive Shot mod.
