Hunter's Journal

The remains of a great Hallownest Crossguard, animated by a strange force. Instinct drives it to guard its post against intruders.
Larger and stronger than their brothers, these bugs are still forced to steal their weapons from the remains of other creatures. They do not roam or hunt, forever standing guard and lashing out at anything that wanders near.

 Behaviour and Tactics

Stands in place until disturbed. Once engaged, it rushes into battle, using two attacks:

  • Overhead Slam: Raises its club and smash it down in an overhead arcing motion. This attack will deal 2 masks of damage.
  • Shockwave: Hops backward, creating shockwaves that travel horizontally both left and right.

It is possible to hit the Husk Guard once, then run out of its range before it can bring down its club, however, the window to strike is quite small. This is easier later on with the Mothwing Cloak.

If the Husk Guard does a shockwave attack, simply jump over the wave. It is usually possible to jump towards the Husk Guard and get one or two hits in after this attack.
