Pumpkin Head Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Pumpkin Head:

  • Northern Mercenary Ashes can make this fight easy
  • Rolling through his attacks works well because he is rather large and moves forward when he attacks, allowing you to end up behind him.


Melee Strategy

Bait his attacks, and dodge through them when you can to end up behind him and attack him in the back of his legs a few times before backing away. Keep repeating this, using your Shield to Block when you aren't sure what attacks he will do, and don't be afraid to Block one attack and dodge the next to put you in position to attack. Use his aggression against him.

If you're having trouble use a Spirit Summons like the Norther Mercenary Ashes to make this fight easier.


Magic and Ranged Strategy

If you use the Northern Mercenary Ashes or other Summoning Spirits then you can just range him down with spells while it has his attention. If not, you'll have to bait his attacks, trying to keep separation to cast your spells. Both Glintstone Stars and Beast Claw work amazingly well for this fight, and both can be used with a Shield in the off-hand to Block with when necessary.
