Back 4 Blood: Can You Kill the Hag? Answered

Back 4 Blood

In Back 4 Blood, there are plenty of Ridden that are considerably stronger than your average zombie. One of those enemies is the Hag: a terrifying boss enemy similar to the Witch from Left 4 Dead. Due to how powerful it is, many are wondering: can you even kill the Hag in Back 4 Blood? Here is everything you need to know.

Just like the Witch in Left 4 Dead, the Hag will not attack you unless you get too close. If you’re low on health or don’t like your deck build, simply avoid getting within its radius. If you are looking for a fight, though, you’d better be ready.

Can you Kill the Hag in Back 4 Blood?

While formidable, the Hag can indeed be killed in Back 4 Blood. As soon as you engage this enemy, it will try and run after one of the Cleaners in order to try and swallow them whole by grabbing them. To escape this hold, you’ll need to have a Stun Gun equipped.

If you don’t have a Stun Gun and get trapped, your teammates need to shoot into the Hag’s weak spots before it digs into the ground. If the monster manages to get underground, the Cleaner that is stuck inside will die.

If no one is trapped, you can focus on dealing damage to the Hag in Back 4 Blood by shooting at the large blisters on its back. Doing so takes out a large bit of the Hag’s health. Keep in mind that you need to kill it in a timely manner. If you aren’t able to, it will simply dig a hole and run away.

That is everything you need to know about whether or not you can kill the Hag in Back 4 Blood. If you’re still on the hunt for more info about the game, be sure to check out the rest of Twinfinite, as it’ll surely have all of the tips, tricks, and FAQs you could ever have about the game.
