Demon's Souls Remake - How to Defeat the Vanguard

The Vanguard is a formidable foe in the souls of demons with a thick health bar and a unique set of moves that you can barely get around. In this guide, we'll show you how to outsmart a monster on its own domain.

Demon's Souls Remake "Boss Vanguard"

Vanguard is a challenging fight and can be dealt with in a variety of ways. The arena provides you with three levels to get revenge on. Depending on your type of weapon, you can choose to fight the boss anyway.

Defeating the Vanguard is rewarded with the corresponding trophy.

The demon has 11,700 health and can absorb quite a few hits before he gets dazed and lays his weakness in front of you.

The vanguard is completely immune to the effects of poison, plague, and bleeding.

Combat strategies

Safe strategy

There is a way to kill the boss without hitting it, and that includes never coming down from the top level (the same level as the fog gate).

Attack the Vanguard from the edge (shoot the bird), and then return to the misty gate to avoid being hit by his tongue.

You can also resonate between the two sides and strike the bird when the opportunity presents itself. Try not to stay in one place for too long, otherwise he will get you with his tongue.

Low-level strategy

Use the ladder to the right of the fog gate and head down to the level directly in front of the lower floor.

Run around the middle floor and throw a homing soul arrow from time to time, avoiding any incoming Vanguard attacks.

If you fall to the ground, just stand up and keep damaging the demon.

You can also try using the stairs leading to the lower floor and spray the Vanguard's head with fire spray.

The same spell can be cast by pacing back and forth along the wall at the middle level. Using the ladder is a pretty reliable strategy as it will most often overwhelm the Vanguard.

Melee strategy

If you feel like you can take the referee head-on, then grab your favorite melee weapon and attack! Be careful and try to avoid getting hit, as he will definitely kill you in one hit.

Slash across his belly with a knife, and eventually you will stun him and expose the bird on his head.

This is when you release all hell on the Vanguard. Try to do as much damage as possible. It should take approximately 3 stuns before you can finally kill the Vanguard.
