To beat Hardrefill you will need to focus a lot on dodging, the glowing red attacks. Those attacks cannot be canceled or counted via the shield. But the one that has a yellow ring can be countered easily and it will also stun Hardrefill.

  • Countering a yellow ring attack with a shield is the best defense. A successful counter will give you some seconds to attack.
  • Hardrefill is good with speed and dodging away. He will not stay in your range of attack and dodge fast.
  • Avoid the green circle on the ground, he will go airborne and charge from the sky.
  • The best thing to do is wait for the yellow ring attack, cancel it using a shield, and then attack with an axe.
  • Also, avoid throwing weapons at him, most of them will be canceled.
  • There are two best times to attack Hardrefill, first is when you successfully counter his yellow ring attack, and the second is when he lands from air to ground with a heavy attack.

This berserker boss will give you a lot of time to attack, the only issue is that he will dodge back frequently. He won’t stay in one place, so be ready with a shield and axe whenever you see him coming close to you.
