Dark SoulsHave you beaten Ludex Gundyr, the first boss that you will encounter after being revived as an ‘Unkindled’? If not, here’s how.

Ol’ Ludex can be found in the Cemetery of Ash and can’t be missed. He’s the first boss you will encounter and there’s no way around this big guy. Once defeated you will get two Trophies/Achievements. One for killing him and one for going ember for the first time. You will also have to face him in order to gain access to the game’s main hub, Firelink Shrine.

Killing him can be challenging at first, but like with all bosses there’s always a way. Keep in mind that Ludex is one of the game’s easiest bosses – I’m sure a lot of you have already defeated him – but somehow is tricky for some players.

Dodging is the key to this fight. Dodge his attacks and strike back with up to four blows, but have enough stamina left to dodge out of the way. It will help if you use Firebombs – or any other ranged attacks – and wait for him to strike. keep your distance and force him to do his jumping lunge attacks, punish him hard.  In his second form, he is weak to fire – better save those bombs – but his attacks are faster and have more range. Again dodging is key.

And that my friends is how you beat Ludex Gundyr and earn two Trophies/Achievements. Do you have a better tactic? Having trouble beating Ludex? share your thoughts in the comments below.

Ain't no thing like me, except me. I am 50% of the awesome people behind this website. I enjoy writing about my deep love for (J)RPG's, fighting games, and Destiny. Really do not like Call of Duty and Battle Royale games. Absolutely love Sushi and Burgers.

    I myself can’t wait to put my hands on this!! I’m a big fan of the franchise and played them all with allot of fun, frustration and almost two broken controllers, totally worth it!!

      Well, you’re in for a treat. The game is awesome – eventhough the rest of the franchise is equally good or even better – and looks amazing. Buy some new controllers. You’re going to need them.
