Hound Rats are an Enemy in Dark Souls 3.
Intrepid adventurers are never too far from a mischief of rats, curiously sniffing the air for scraps and potential prey. These pestilence bringers shouldn't prove to be more than a mere annoyance, but can still be unruly and difficult to predict in large numbers. It is wise to attack one rat at a time, as they are particularly skilled in surrounding players.
Slashing attacks are particularly useful against these enemies, and a few precise hits will quickly dispatch the undesired. Their attacks are largely predictable and recovery time is ample enough for players to attack multiple times.
- Lunges forth at the player after a short buildup, and will bite continuously.
- This enemy can be easily lured with an Alluring Skull, distracting them long enough to either escape or kill them.
