Infested Barbarian (Boulder) Description
Large and ugly giants who have taken liking to boulders and use them as weapons.
- Boulder Strike
- Boulder Smash
- Boulder Rolling Attack
They can be easily brought down with backstabs, as they are slow, and have a large recovery time after swings. They are also quite susceptible to bleeding. Can dangerous in groups as they can throw their rock from far away, not only delivering large damage, but also setting you up for a combo which can easily kill those with a vitality lower than 15 in two hits. Be wary of their boulder 'drop and roll' attack as it doesn't really seem like they are doing anything, but then can cause massive damage. When you see them start to gently place the boulder down, roll or move to the side as they will begin pushing boulder straight forward until they hit something. After a successful dodge a backstab is pretty easy to pull off.
