How to Kill The Ent
Alternative Kill Method
Destroy Ent’s legs before it dies. Any damage works. Focus legs, not feet.
This boss enemy will be encountered in one of the more open areas in the game in The Choking Hollow. The boss fight has multiple phases whereby The Ent will change its moves and attack patterns. The Ent has a huge health pool so it’ll take quite a lot of hits to whittle his health down to zero. This enemy will inflict the Infected status effect, so stock up on those Oilskin Tonics.
The fight starts with a stomp attack from The Ent which sends out shockwaves. You can deal with them by rolling through the first wave of this attack. You get a brief window where you can shoot down at The Ent. Deal with the smaller enemies by shooting the pink guys so they don’t explode near you. Make sure to collect ammunition from them as this will be a long fight.
The next phases see The Ent send out an explosive foe who comes charging at you. Dodge out of the way at the earliest to avoid getting hit by the explosion. Now, wait for his ground slam attack where he uses both his hands. Time your dodge and then immediately focus fire on the red cluster on its back for bonus damage.
You now enter the final phase, where The Ent wreaks havoc via mortars and explosive enemies. Thankfully, you can circle around The Ent and use the impact of the mortars to get rid of the smaller foes. After dodging his mortar attacks, concentrate fire again on the boss enemy to bring it down.
