For a little under a week, Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific players have been terrorized by one single enemy: Krampus. The Christmas villain was introduced as a part of the Festive Fervor event and can kill enemies with ease on Caldera. Players have grown increasingly frustrated with Krampus the past few days, as he can end a player’s match in less than five seconds.
There aren’t too many concrete ways to ensure that players can kill Krampus if he happens to start hunting them. However, players can follow a few simple tricks to give them the best chance of surviving Krampus’ attack and even put him down in the process.
Killing Krampus in Warzone Pacific
The first and most important aspect to consider when trying to take down Krampus is what weapon to use. Krampus has a high amount of health and players will need a ton of bullets to kill him before he can kill them. For this reason, it’s recommended players use a powerful assault rifle or light machine gun. The Automaton, with a large magazine, or the Bren are the top two options that players should consider. The Bren is perhaps the better choice since it’s arguably the top weapon in Warzone Pacific.
When fighting the beast, players want to keep as much distance as possible between them and Krampus. While keeping a good distance, players should empty their magazine into Krampus’ upper body, making sure not to miss many shots.
If players need to reload or avoid an attack from Krampus, they should find cover behind a tree, rock or another object near them. Players want to avoid tight hallways and corners at all costs when fighting Krampus. This is where the beast can kill players with blazing fast attacks that are almost impossible to avoid.
As long as players stay out in the open, take cover when needed and keep firing their weapon, they should be able to take down Krampus. If they manage to kill the horned monster, they can pick up $10,000 and earn 2,000 XP. This is the best way to fight Krampus in his current, overpowered state within Warzone Pacific.
