How to Kill Varcolac

Stay Inside

Upon your first encounter with Varcolac, a short cutscene will see Ethan go inside of a house. Keep this tactic in mind, as Varcolac will try to swipe at you through the door frame and windows of whatever house you're in. This allows you to shoot at him with your own weapons, virtually safe and free from harm.

Set Up a Trap

By using houses as your safety net, you simply need to find a house or any other building that offers you some room to maneuver in. From there, shoot at it once and run back into your chosen house. It will try to swipe at you through doors or window panes, so don't get too close. You can sink a good number of your shots into it before it runs away.

Use Explosives

To quicken the process of killing the creature, you can plant a mine by the door or the window it will use to try and swipe at you. Attract it to you once again by shooting and running inside. Let it try to squeeze through wherever you planted your mines, triggering it and causing it great damage.

Use Magnum Bullets

Once you've acquired the M1851 Wolfsbane, the Varcolac near Moreau's Laboratory is the first Varcolac you can try this on. One or two shots right between the eyes, ought to do the trick.
