The Unclean One Strategies

Video Strategies

[Video Example]


Strategy Writeup

This boss's attack can break the environment objects like walls and can spawn adds from time to time. The best strategy is try to maintain a medium distance from him and fire to his head. 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.

        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.

                      adds make this bossfight hell but a shotgun and spitfire combo works pretty well along with scrapper armor, i put mender's aura on it just in case but i recommend going with hotshot and using frenzy dust

                        I let him throw the hammer into the forge, nothing happened. I made him use hisBelly strike infront of the forge, nothing happened. I killed him while his hammer was on the ground, nothing happened.

                              Just fought him with Hunting Pistol (+ Blink Token) to nuke him down with headshots, and blink away when he rushes me. Used Sporebloom to AOE the adds. Made the fight quite easy.

                                For the Butcher's Flail i have tried to shoot the arm, the hammer when it's thrown no damage on the thrown hammer. Maybe you guys should try to shoot his belly.
