How to Fight Arachnomorphs

How to Fight

The best way to deal with Arachnomorphs is to stop their movements and attack them. You can do this by placing multiple Yrden Sign traps on the ground. When they step into a trap, they will get stunned for a long duration and this will allow you to finish them off with sword strikes.

What Preparations to Make?

You should use your Silver Sword and coat it with Insectoid oil to deal bonus damage to them. Prepare the Northern Wind Bomb to freeze them or the Dancing Star Bomb to burn them and stop their movements.

Special Sign Effects

  • Aard - This can momentarily stagger them to stop their movements and give you an opening to attack.
  • Igni - If your Sign Intensity is high enough, they will start burning and you can use this to attack them while they are not moving.
  • Yrden - They will get stunned for a long duration when they step into a trap. Allowing you to attack them and finish them off.
  • Axii - This can momentarily stun them to stop their movements and give you an opening to attack.
