Like so many other human bosses in the game, Rufus is also surrounded by other humans, but if you approach the boss tactically, you won’t be bothered by them. If you are finding it difficult, here is how to beat Rufus the Foreman in V Rising.

How to Defeat Rufus the Foreman in V Rising

Beating Rufus the Foreman in V Rising awards you with the ability Blood Rage. When this ability is enabled, you and the troops with you gain a power boost and deal more damage. Rufus uses three main types of attacks. Blood Rage – he and the troops with him will glow flaring red and deal more damage. The second attack is a trap that Rufus throws on you. If you are close to Rufus, he will throw the trap on himself and dodge and roll. Getting trapped in the net will ready Rufus for the basic attack, which is the crossbow. Getting hit with the crossbow will stagger you and can only be broken with quick movement (Space Bar). If you get trapped in the net, use any of the ability to free yourself (‘C’ ‘R’ or ‘Q’).

Fight Rufus the Foreman

When you enter the area, either from the bridge or the back, go straight to Rufus without going through any other troops. Approaching the fight via the bridge is the best option as troops in the other area won’t be alerted. Keep the fight in the area when Rufus is. Covering too much distance during the fight will alert the other troops.
