How to defeat Champion Gundyr

Name: Champion Gundyr
Area: Cemetery of Ash
The Closest Bonfire: Untended Graves
Basic Rewards: Soul of Champion Gundyr, 60,000 Souls

This boss can be found in Untended Graves, a secret area deftly hidden from prying eyes. If you need help getting there, take a look at our Untended Graves guide.

Champion Gundyr keeps the abilities from Iudex Gundyr but is far more aggressive. New Champion skills involve spin attacks, leg attacks, shoulder pushes and more. While trying to defeat him, there is a great chance you’ll get hit more than once. This means you’ll have to time everything right, drink lots of Estus, counter his attacks and movement, etc.

There is no medium range with Champion Gundyr, keep that in mind if you are trying to stay away from him. Dodge, hit, get hit, drink estus, rinse, repeat. Like with the first boss, the only weak spot is once he jumps into the air and lands at your position.

Champion Gundyr Main Rewards

The soul you get from him can be transposed into a ring or a halberd:
  • Gundyr’s Halberd: Standard thrust Halberd that does moderate Physical damage but requires at least 30 Strength and 15 Endurance points.
  • Giant’s Chain: This ring increases VGR, END and VIT but it makes the players take more damage.
