Attack Patterns

Overall, the Varcolac guarding Moreau's Lab isn't different from all the other Varcolacs you'll encounter in the game. It will still chase after you if it sees you or you aggravate it, and will still try to claw its way inside of a building you're in to get swipes at you.

How to Beat Moreau Treasure Varcolac

Stay Indoors

Once it sees you, avoid fighting it out in the open at all costs. Get inside of a building with windows or doors – the Varcolac will try to squeeze through and get stuck, allowing you to shoot at it until it moves away or dies.

Use Explosives

Execute a trap where you plant mines near doorways or windows that the Varcolac will try to squeeze through. These explosives will trigger, causing massive damage. Alternatively, you can throw Pipe Bombs or use Explosive Rounds directly onto it.

Use the Magnum

If you wish to save time, energy, and ammunition for your other weapons, simply use the Magnum that you picked up. Two or three shots will do, making it a faster way of dealing with this mini-boss.

You will mostly use your pistol in this fight to aggravate the Varcolac. Lay out mines around windows or doors you intend the beast to try and squeeze through, and shoot it with your pistol to begin the chase. Once it's stuck, whip out either your Shotgun or Grenade Launcher and start hammering away at it until it dies or runs away.
