Horned Warrior is a Banner Unit of the Hellhorned Clan Hellhorned.png

Lore[]

Though slightly unwieldy due to the recent loss of their tails, these maturing demons have grown into their horns, making them valuable soldiers of the Hellhorned and of our Rail.

Strategy[]

Horned Warrior, with Multistrike taken into account, has one of the highest base initial damage values (30) among all non-Champion monsters of any clan; all units that hit harder initially without upgrades have difficult play or usage requirements.

As such, Horned Warrior is a simple, but effective unit. Early in the game, it pulls a lot of weight on its own with its powerful attacks while being no more difficult to play than a Train Steward. However, like most units, it isn't capable of taking on later ring combats by itself, even with upgrades. With Multistrike 1, it's also fairly good at taking advantage of Attack buffs from Rage or other sources.

Horned Warrior is a great target for Floor Overstacking.

Suggested Upgrades[]

Upgrade Description
Upgrade Unit Heartstone.png Heartstone rounds out Horned Warrior's combat effectiveness, letting it carry you in the first few rings. Later, it prevents Horned Warrior from being picked off by Sweep and Spikes, and even if Horned Warrior isn't in front, it can still make a difference on a crowded floor against bosses.
Upgrade Unit Strengthstone.png Strengthstone is put to solid use on Horned Warrior, boosting its damage output by 20.
Upgrade Unit Largestone.png Largestone combines the above two upgrades and then some, and is particularly good if you're able to consistently use floor overstacking to mitigate the +1Capacity that comes with it.
