Where to Find The Butcher in Diablo 4?

Yes, you heard it right, The Butcher is in Diablo IV! The legendary demon is eager to collect fresh meat from your body, so you better be careful when roaming Fractured Peaks. Currently, The Butcher encounters in Diablo 4 are completely random. You will not be able to find him at a specific place. He will jump on you when you’re least expecting him and make quick work of you if you’re not careful.

The Butcher will start popping once you reach Level 10. And you will not be able to encounter him outside of dungeons, so you should be safe in the open world. While he will randomly appear in dungeons, some players report there are higher chances of him appearing in the Light’s Watch dungeon. However, we can not confirm this.

What Rewards The Butcher Drops in Diablo 4?

Once The Butcher appears in Diablo 4, he will either eliminate you or disappear if you don’t beat him after a certain amount of time. It will be tough to beat him, but it’s well worth your time. The Butcher’s loot drop is highly lucrative, and among other things, you’ll receive The Butcher’s Cleaver, a unique one-handed axe.

How to Beat Butcher in Diablo IV

Let’s not beat around the bush here. Defeating The Butcher is one of the hardest things to do in D4. No matter what level your character is, The Butcher will always spawn as a level 25 enemy. If you enter a dungeon solo on any level below 20, he will likely beat you in one or two hits. There’s simply not much you can do. Hence, the best strategy here is to try to beat him in co-op with one or more friends.

Nikola's been playing video games since his father bought him the NES and the Sega Mega Drive in the early '90s. Later, he became a predominantly PC gamer who enjoys narrative-driven RPGs, real-time strategies, and psychological/survival horror games. Nevertheless, he appreciates any game that's worth his time.With over 12 years of experience in esports & gaming journalism, I like to think that my guides once helped a NASA scientist to beat a game. What I'm trying to say is that I should be credited for NASA's Mars missions. (I'm just kidding, please don't shoot me). In my free time, I dream of the day when I will finally start clearing my Steam backlog.
