Rapid Shot • Knocks Back
— In-game description
- Caudecus's Manor
- Rapid Shot
- Knocks Back
- His knock back attack can't be reflected.
- His knock back attack is very slow, and its animation very noticeable. If players avoid walls and keep him in open spaces, they can easily attack him in melee and step away from the attack while moving around him without the need of dodges. Disabling "Melee Attack Assist" in the options panel will allow walking through him to avoid his attack faster. Players can then save their dodges for when they are sure they can't simply step away.
- The recharge of his knockback attack is shorter than the duration of the knockback. As he prioritizes knocked down players and his attack knocks back downed players, without stun breakers anyone hit once by it will be stunlocked and most likely be defeated unless a ranged revive skill is used on them. Ranged attacks, stability, condition removals and ranged revives are highly recommended against him.
