Hollow Soldier Description

Remnants of Lothric's army roam the dusty parapets of the now-dilapidated kingdom, whose once stoic ramparts endured battles between unearthly beasts, giants and kings. In truth, little remains of this mighty force; time unforgiving, their swords now rusty and their silhouettes hardly as menacing as in the days of old.

Hollow Soldiers should be fairly bothersome to new players, although not for long. Some even appear completely disinterested in matters around them, and will not attack unless provoked. They can be found guarding castle grounds, like the bridge above Farron Keep and the High Wall of Lothric, and they are hardly different from Hollows in previous games, offering a typical early-level challenge for players.

 

Hollow Soldier Combat Information

  • Their shields don't block a lot of damage and you're free to attack them with shields up.
  • Lantern-bearing Hollows will awaken and aggravate any Soldiers nearby. Killing them early will prevent that. They themselves may also attack.
  • Spearmen will hold their shields up and will counter once attacked.
  • The taller brethren of this enemy wield Greataxes and Halberds, and have greater health and damage then their lesser kin. Particular caution ought to be exerted when fighting them

        I *****ing hate these guys. It's not that they're hard or difficult to stagger with the shield but their combos are so annoying and they stunlock you, and by the time you get to press r1, they've started another one and it's SO IRRITATING, YOU'RE AN EASY ENEMY GTFO OUT OF MY WAY, I'M TRYING TO DO IMPORTANT STUFF.

          It kinda sucks that you can't get the Iron Round Shield early, especially if you wanna do some low-level invading.

            Nearly all variants except for greataxe and halberd guy will get stunned after hitting a raised shield (Knight). take the time to bludgeon them afterwards. All variants are easy to circlestrafe and are left open to backstabs.
