The Unclean One Strategies

Video Strategies

[Video Example]


Strategy Writeup

This boss's attack can break the environment objects like walls and can spawn ads from breaking the urns in his shack. The best strategy is try to maintain a medium distance from him and fire to his unarmored areas. When at a distance, he can perform three kinds of moves: The belly strike, the weapon leap and the weapon throw. If he closes distance dodge backwards.

There's a great oportunity to some damage when he throws his hammer, as he will always go retrieve It and give the player his back for a couple of seconds, where you can capitalize on his weak spot on his butt.

When he tries to us hammer whirlwind, run in a wide circle until the attack ends and then finish him off.

Weapon Leap: Jumps into the air from a distance striking you with his weapon Try to wait until he is about to land, then dodge forward and you will be behind him. Use the opportunity to attack his butt dealing additional damage.

The Unclean One Lore

Theory of Origin: The Unclean one appears to be unaffected by the Iskal Vyxwurm, and keeps some infected in jars within his shack. Due to this, and his amphibious skin, is theorized that the Unclean One is some sort of frog-like entity that feeds on the insectoid inhabitants of the swamps, and the viscera scattered over his table is the remains of Iskal thralls.

The Unclean One Notes & Trivia

In the Swamps of Corsus update, his head weakness was removed, and his overall health reduced to compensate. An alt kill was also added with this update.

        Neutral dodge his ground slam attacks when going for the alt kill. As soon as he begins his downswing, hit the dodge button.

        Neutral dodge gives you plenty of time to recover and maybe even get a shot in if he isn't doing his swings in quick succession.

          Stumbled on a cheese way to kill him easy for the Hammerhead ore. Drop an iron sentential in front of his second weapon
          in the wall by the stairs, when he goes to get the weapon he can get stuck on the iron sentential and just keep running in

            did the alt kill but the game didn't give me a pop up for the hammerhead ore. I was still able to buy the flail even without that item in my inventory.

              lol! this is such a fun boss design. unavoidable AoE stagger with ranged attack that will kill you in one combo. Super exciting gameplay by devs that clearly know how to design awesome boss fights.

                  He really pulled out so many f*cking moves with his axe(s), I literally was behind him after he did a slam attack and was about to hit him but he threw the axe behind and hit me dead on, and his slams are so deadly for the fact they hit everywhere below.

                    He's quite easy once you get a hang of it. Watch out for his ground slam tho, it has a bit of a delay to roll-caught you, took me a few tries. But hey, at least he's not total BS like Gorefist and summon the entire population of China's worth of minions to fight you.

                      God damn stupid 4x ground slam entire arena attack piece of dung ffs...
                      If I get hit once, on normal, with 18 gear score, I only have 35% hp left with maxed out Vitality so if I fail 1 dodge on the ground slam phase I'm a goner, god damn it!

                        The boss is fairly simple, just dive / dodge "in to" his attacks beside him, the hammer has a hit box that's way infront. Then turn around and shoot the bastard in the ass (his weak spot), this also keeps him more in one place and a friend can take out minions and do damage from afar as he breaks down all the walls during the fight.

                          So the guide is wrong, on the alt-kill stage he has an extra attack where he slams the ground 3-4 times and thes launches his weapon at you. This ground pound strikes the whole stage if i'm not mistaken

                            Try to get the alt kill, but when entering his hut it seems his is already agro'd. and the door way to the stairs are blocked. How do you enter his hut without agro-ing him?

                              To get the alt kill you need to sneak into his basement and hide inside a cauldron. That will trigger an alt fight that will reward you the material for the flail.
