How To Beat Diablo 4 Butcher (& Loot Drops)
The Butcher in Diablo 4 is very difficult to find and even more so when it comes to beating him. While bosses are a matter of progression, there are certain side bosses that can deliver that rare level loot. The Butcher is one such kind of boss that you will encounter in the game. Although this is not the first appearance of this boss in the Diablo franchise, one thing is certain that it won’t be as easy as it was earlier. So if you are having trouble finding the Butcher and defeating him then we recommend you check out this guide.
How to Find the Butcher in Diablo 4 (Location)
At the time of writing, there is no fix location where you can find him. If you want to fight The Butcher in Diablo 4, you will have to head to the 23 side dungeons in Fractured Peaks where this boss spawns randomly.
So even if you head to one of these locations, encountering the Butcher comes down to your luck. Whether this continues or changes when the full version of the game drops is something we will find out later. Nevertheless, we will update this guide once the game releases and more information comes out.
How to Beat the Butcher in Diablo 4
For the Beta version, it is close to impossible to defeat The Butcher unless you have maxed out. This boss will spawn with a time limit and rest assured he will chase you till the end of the dungeon as long as the limit isn’t over. Another thing players need to know is that you get one shot at the Butcher. If you lose or leave the dungeon, you will not be able to find him again.
While there is no proper strategy of fighting this boss, a Rogue build or a Sorcerer Build will have more advantage due to their ability of passive damage. Keep in mind, you will have to move a lot to avoid his attacks. Since you are kind of a cake for the Butcher, make sure you don’t take any hits while chipping away at his health in Diablo 4.

If you manage to defeat the Butcher, there will be a few rewards waiting for you. While it is still not clear what items you will get, you will surely get a Legendary Item or two. Many players have even managed to get the Butcher’s Cleaver as a reward for this fight.
