Undead Knight Archer Information
Balder armored archer, used light crossbow and standart bolts.
- Light Crossbow (2% chance)
- 160 ~ 1500 souls
- Bolt Attack With Crossbow, can be blocked
Usually very simple to deal with, just hold up your shield when it fires, then run in and kill it in 1 or 2 hits. If your attack rating is low, just rinse and repeat a few times. Since they are usually backed up against a wall, it is difficult to backstab and no riposte is possible. Sometimes they can be a hassle since other undead will be attacking simultaneously so try to position yourself where their arrows/bolts will hit some feature of the landscape, such as a wall or rock, while killing the melee undead. Once they're all taken care of, rush the archer.
Always found it odd how there is only one of these in the entire game
He can also drop titanite and large titanite, helpful fellow
Cool dude, glad he didn't get cut.
There is only one of these in the game I think.
He also drops titanite shards, and most likely the Balder set, too
Why is he called "archer" when he uses a crossbow?
One of my favourite ennemies in this game. He doesn’t really pose much of a threat and I kinda just run past him, admiring his beauty, just like the New Londo Leaning Hollow.
