Undead Archers are one of the first enemies the player encounters. They appear to be an animated skeleton wearing the clothing they died in. They are only present in decent quantities at the lowest difficulty.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Upon spotting the player, it will fire an arrow at the player. If you are too close to it, it will do a backstep before firing. If it's cornered at a wall, it can teleport behind you instead.

Elite Archers have a small change to their attack patterns: they attack much faster and shoot 2 arrows at once, one as usual and one below it, making it impossible to dodge by crouching.

Moveset[edit | edit source]

Fire arrow
  • Description: Fires an arrow.
  • Can be blocked, parried, and dodge rolled.
  • The arrow can be avoided by crouching.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Undead Archers are one of the easiest enemies in the game to deal with. Their only attack has a very slow startup and travels slowly, giving you plenty of time to dodge, block, or interrupt them. In most cases, running up to them past other enemies and killing them first is sufficient.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In the earliest stages of development it could shoot in any direction and through walls, much like an Inquisitor does.
  • In previous versions of the game, rolling directly through an arrow would hurt you. This is no longer the case.
  • Although the Undead Archer never appears directly in the animated release trailer, the audio of them firing arrows is heard and an actual arrow is seen.
