Pirate Captains are enemies found in the Stilt Village.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Pirate Captains fire a large, gravity-affected cannonball from their cannon which explodes eventually or on contact with the player. At close range, they will attack by swinging the cannon three times, tracking where the beheaded is before the first and third swings and switching directions if the beheaded is on the opposite side.

Moveset[edit | edit source]

Cannon bomb
  • Description: Shoots a cannonball that explodes either on contact or after a delay.
  • Can be blocked, parried, and dodge rolled.
  • The explosion itself cannot be rolled, however it can be blocked or parried.


Cannon combo
  • Description: Strikes repeatedly with the cannon.
  • Can be blocked, parried, and dodge rolled.



Strategy[edit | edit source]

Pirate Captains move slowly, and are easy to outrange with skills and ranged weapons, although one should be mindful of being hit by cannonballs. Their cannonballs are a slow and relatively easy to avoid along with parrying back. The cannonballs flash when about to explode, with a large radius. Despite their slow movement, Pirate Captains' melee combo is deceptively fast and very dangerous. Engaging in close combat is not advised. Dealing with them from afar and keeping space in between are key to defeating them.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Pirate Captain possessing the Heart of Ice mutation is likely a reference to Davy Jones from Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.
