The Harrow Strategies

Strategy Writeup

The Harrow will charge at your location when you are at a distance, wait until he is close and dodge forward. Try to fire at its legs as this will stagger him. If you fire enough times at his legs, he will fall to the ground, if you run behind him you can grab the Lost Harpoon weapon.

NOTE: If you grab the Harpoon, then die, you will have to repeat the process. Unlike some other alternative boss rewards, the 'Harpoon taken' state is not persistent between attempts.

When close, it will perform a three hit combo that can deal high damage, try to dodge forward and stay behind him.

When you deal enough damage, he will run away and spam ads. Try to defeat the ads before The Harrow returns.

 

Attacks & Counters

Attack Counter
Phase 1
Charge and strike: It will charge at your location attacking with its claws Wait until he is near and then dodge forward avoiding him and putting yourself on its back
Three attack combo: It will use its claws to perform a powerful three hit combo Dodge forward and run away from him
Run away and spawn adds: It will hide and spawn adds, after a moment he will come back Try to deal with the ads while the boss is not in the room.

      Bit underwhelming for a World Boss. I killed it on my first time through Rhom without even realising it was one. Just ripped it apart with help from my Very Good Boy. Mind you, I might have been a bit overleveled.

        They don't warn you about his one shot grab attack yet the image they use is from the attack.

        He'll roar at you before running towards you and stab at you with his claw, if it connects he'll spear you through the stomach and lift you up, roaring at you again before throwing you on the ground.

          Is there a place I can go to find out how to get the lost harpoon? The info in the wiki is out-of-date and i can't really find any more up-to-date info about this

            By far the easiest boss in the game. Use whatever set you want, one shot magazine guns are suggested (Sniper, Devastator). Run through him and kite him arround in a circle in the middle of the arena -Adrenalines are your best friend here- and DPS him at a slow rate. Harrow reacts to fast and high DPS ratios, just focus on running around and fire a shot every 2-3 seconds. Be careful with your mods, make sure they dont stack extensive DPS, making him retreat. Devastator works best for me, but use whatever gun you vibe with, just make sure you utilize the strat and you will have the easiest nightmare/apocalypse fights of your life. Do it a couple of times to get the hang of the DPS ratio you have to deal to secure that he doesnt spawn ads and you're all set. You're welcome.

              i found a pretty silly "bug" to deal with this fight: go to the corridor on your left just after you enter the arena, when the boss follow you into the corridor, moving towards the corner of the path kinda messes with its pathfinding AI, and he'll turn around and try to reach you from the other end of the corridor. Return to the previous position and he'll turn back again. This also affects normal enemies coming from the arena entrance side of the corridor as well.

              With this trick you'll only have to worry about the minions coming from one end of the corridor, and with a weapon with sustainable firepower (I used Ruin), the fight is actually not that bad.

                alternative kill described here doesn't work at all. predictably, since fextralife writers have no idea what they're doing. Shooting his legs actually just deals damage until he dies and you get no stagger to remove the weapon.

                  developers for this game are pretty dumb. What am I supposed to do here? boss's attacks are outrageous and have absurd range. to make it worse, they put extremely tight corridors.. in a 3rd person game.. what moron does level design like this

                  no wonder this game is borderline dead

                    If you keep him in the middle area, he cannot retreat to the roof and spawn adds. Just kite him around that place and keep shooting

                      Actually there was a much more cheesy way xD Equip the "Mantle of Thorns" mod from the first boss and get your hand on either the "World Breaker" Hammer or the "Petrified Maul" Hammer. Shoot his leg until he is close, dodge and go ham on him with LOADED strikes. Either you hit him hard and stagger, or the reflection of the Mante hits him even harder. He will be on his knees in 3-4 strikes. Pull the speer and finish him off.

                        After a ton of testing and failures I think I've got this figured out:
                        Turns out that there's TWO types of stagger situations, one where he immediately runs after a stagger and another where he keeps fighting for a bit before running and that's the crucial difference! Once you stagger him by shooting his one leg and he decides to keep on fighting THEN start shooting his other leg and only THEN it works to send him to his knees.

                          i've just find an interesting thing. I just fought him in apocalipse with a build with bleeding+fire status and if i kept the status always on he never run away and skip the add phase. I dunno if the point was 2 any random status or just the fire (the bleeding alone is not enough for that i'm sure). Need more test. Hope it helps

                            Not sure if it was a bug or what but using the beam rifle i was able to just dodge his attacks and kill him without ever fighting an add? Though this only worked after switching off the very good boy mod.

                              How the f*** are you supposed to do the harpoon kill if it takes like 200 shots to a leg to make it stagger and another 100 during stagger to make him fall (while the stagger animation is shorter than an smg reload..... not to mention if you somehow pull this miracle the prompt to pick up the harpoon is so friggn random it's pure luck if you manage to pick it up before he gets back on his feet....

                                This guy can be quite a wall depending on your build, the adds can become overwhelming if your build isn't suited to dealing with them quickly, and if you can't kill them fast enough then you have to contend with them *and* Harrow. The submachine gun and Spitfire are good subweapon choices for spraying through adds quickly, leaving your long-gun slot open for whatever you like.
                                Explosive Shot, Rattle Weed, and Iron Sentinel are excellent help for the fight, and if you're lucky enough to have help with you, perhaps one of your teammates will bring more late-game mods like Stormcaller or Blink Token, which are also fantastic for melting adds.
                                Special note for people using Ruin; the Undying mod will not protect you from Harrow's instant kill Deathclaw command grab, you will still die even if the mod is fully charged.

                                  Solo hard, no dmg: Shotgun +turret mod / Hive cannon Stay in mid stage all fight so when he comes back u see him early and have enough time to damage hard, just shoot him nonestop and run around, mod can help a bit but make sure that when he runs away u got 2 turrets up nd shot Hive cannon mod to ground, run around that and adds will die with almost no effort. Took me 3 or 4 rounds of him running and coming back

                                    he has an instant kill move where he picks you up and you are just dead happened after he summoned a wave of adds

                                    • Don't know why ppl struggle that much... you just kill the ads with a shotgun and then deal with the boss . A fire attribute weapon + swarm will delete him in 2-3 mins , keep your distance and u are more than fine.

                                        Struggled for sometime to beat him. Staying in the center of the room, fire mods, lots of dodging did the trick for me. The ads mostly come from one of two entrances so they're could be dealt with. Saved some exploding bullets for the boss.

                                        • This fight is currently bugged on PS4. I got killed by his charge twice in a row(once through a wall and again when I dodged past him but he magically turned 180 degrees to hit me) and every time I respawn back at the checkpoint, my controls are completely unresponsive. I can open the menu but I cannot move/attack/aim/use items and even using the "warp back to last checkpoint" item the condition remains till I quit the game and reload.

                                            Managed to stop his running by interupting it using the Rattleweed Mod, worth a shot for anyone struggling. Didnt know about the Harpoon though so back to him I go

                                              I actually figured him out. At list worked in my game. Shoot him in a leg. Just leg. He never runs away and no adds. After 2 hours of horrible time on him I was able to kill him without a scratch and got geode. Ba carefull tho one head or body hit he runs and you screwed. Hunter riffle or revolver works best. Feels almost like an exploit.

                                                Infinite adds respawn is lazy design. First five times I thought kill adds then take 1/4 of his HP, but it is impossible to kill all adds and those bastards are fast. 20+. Now am dying when he is on last bar. Few more I guess but that fight is horrible. I highly recommend to use consumables from old dude and dog food. Maybe upgrade weapons and armor once or twice. At list that is what I gonna do now before wasting more time on him.

                                                  In nightmare(maybe other too) multiplayer ,Sometime he'll roar and charge toward player then perform thrust attack. This move was instant kill(not downed)

                                                      Just beat this guy on Nightmare, and you know what would make this boss NOT cancer? Replacing his never ending mobs of bull*****with a set amount every time he runs and hides in the roof of the arena. If the mobs aren't dealt with, the next time The Harrow runs and hides, the next set of mobs will stack on the last, giving the player incentive to kill the mobs as they spawn. It's bad enough that this mother*****er his hard to find in his own arena when he isn't in hiding, but having to run from endless mob spawning bull*****only to turn a corner and be instantly killed by this guy is so utterly obnoxious.

                                                        This is absolutely the worst boss in terms of fun and design in the game. You spend more time fighting adds then actually fighting the boss itself

                                                          Shoot at him from the front and in the armor plating on his legs. the armor plating breaks off. After many attempts this is what worked for my friends and i.

                                                            It took me way too long to finally get the harpoon. Knocked him down as he was running away and he glitched out when he got back up and was able to just hack away. Ended up getting the untouchable achievement as well. Whatever, I'll take it. A little luck never hurt anyone.

                                                              I've found if you go downstairs and walk around the two generator looking things he doesn't run away and the adds don't come in big numbers. This is how i was able to do the alternative kill. Upstairs was too nutty with adds everywhere. Just keep doing loops and he will trudge after you occasionally running, as long as you run around the outside you shouldn't have any problem.

We got him down once and the animation bugged because the other player was near him. Then the next time we got the harpoon animation, we ended up dying because I had to revive the other guy twice and having to shoot everything. Then we absolutely couldn't get him down. He staggers once on one leg then *****s off to the ceiling. So boring. Ended up killing him really fast the normal way.
