Catchers are enemies found in the Graveyard and the Fractured ShrinesFF. They appear somewhat similar to Cleavers and have similarly high health.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Catchers walk around slowly and attack whenever the see the player with in range. At melee range, it will perform a quick melee kick. Any further than that and it will throw its hook at the player.

Moveset[edit | edit source]

Grappling hook
  • Description: Tosses a hook that roots and pulls the player on hit. On a successful hit, follows up with a charged slash.
  • Can be blocked, parried, and dodge rolled.
  • The hook can be crouched under.
  • It is possible to roll away from the slash follow-up. This is more likely to be successful if you were hit from further away.


  • Description: Performs a melee range kick that knocks back.
  • Can be blocked, parried, and dodge rolled.



Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • The grappling hook can be ducked under. However, the Catcher does walk forward slightly in-between each use of the hook, so he will eventually reach your position if you are on the same platform.
  • Any ranged weapon you can fire while ducking (such as bows) will make Catchers very easy to fight. Simply crouch and fire from a distance and they will not hit you.
  • Parrying the grappling hook does avoid the attack, but does not damage the Catcher or spawn a reflected projectile. Area of effect shields like Punishment Icon.png Punishment or Bloodthirsty Shield Icon.png Bloodthirsty Shield will still spawn their auras, however, which may damage the Catcher.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Prior to an unknown version, Catchers were previously found in High Peak Castle. They occasionally show up in this biome in Daily Challenges.
