Cannibals are enemies found in the Clock Tower. They can also be found in the Graveyard with 4 BSC active.

Behavior[]

If the Cannibal sees the player from attack distance, it will start to use its slash combo. If the player is too close to the Cannibal, they will do a backstep while leaving behind a grenade. It can also do a quick backstep without leaving behind a bomb to avoid the player.

Moveset[]

Slash combo

  • Description: Quickly jumps forward and slashes. Can follow up with two more slashes.
  • Can be blocked, parried, or dodge rolled.
  • For its second slash, it attacks from the same position and direction as the first.
  • It can turn around for the third slash.
  • If the first attack misses and you're too far from the Cannibal, it will not follow up with more slashes.

Strategy[]

Cannibals are very fast when on the move, covering a lot of ground with each step. Their slash combo is quick and they can change direction mid-combo, enough time to roll behind them and run away or parry them but not enough to hit them mid-combo. It's safer to roll away, but you can roll behind them if you do it early.

Crowd control effects are especially effective against Cannibals, holding them in place long enough for you to kill them or avoid their attacks. Parries also work well against them as it stuns long enough for you to kill them. Fast melee weapons work the best against them as they are mostly likely to interrupt them before they can attack. With ranged attacks, bait out their melee attack from a distance and attack from out of their reach.

Cannibals are very difficult to fight with slow melee weapons. Your best bet is to wait for them to finish attacking and hit them.

Trivia[]

  • In the incomplete stage "Repository of the Architects", the biome is flooded with Cannibals.
