Armored Lycans are a variant of the regular Lycans that run around stalking you aroung the Village. They are far more durable compared to their regular brethren, forcing you to utilize heavier weapons when fighting against them. Due to their armored nature, they are far more willing to charge at you head on.

How to Kill Armored Lycans

Use Your Shotgun

Anything less than your destructive shotguns would mean wasted ammunition. Armored Lycans are difficult to kill, even more so than regular Lycans. Your shotgun will have the biggest impact in terms of damage – use it as you slowly inch backwards to avoid its charge. Once its head gear falls off, shoot it straight to the head to finish it off quickly.

Use Explosives

Even though shotguns deal tremendous damage, explosives such as Pipe Bombs and Mines can take care of an Armored Lycan's armor in one go. Rush in for the kill with the shotgun should the explosion not kill them outright.
