Darkest Dungeon 2, as the highly anticipated sequel to critically acclaimed Darkest Dungeon, introduces a whole host of heroes with different skills and abilities – among them is a formidable Bounty Hunter capable of hunting down any enemies that arise – this blog post will explore their role and capabilities within Darkest Dungeon 2.

Background of Bounty Hunters

The Bounty Hunter is an experienced warrior adept at tracking down and eliminating targets for a price. Their past may remain unknown but this enigmatic character brings unique skills to the table; their use of weapons such as flails and gadgets allows them to inflict massive damage against single targets while disrupting enemy formations.

Skills and Abilities

One of the primary strengths of a Bounty Hunter lies in their ability to direct the battlefield. Employing techniques like “Come Hither” and “Uppercut,” they can use skills such as pulling enemies towards them or pushing them away as necessary; this enables him to alter their positions, disrupt enemy plans, and open opportunities for his allies to strike back against them.

Bounty Hunters have become invaluable allies when facing formidable foes, due to their signature move, “Collect Bounty.” By employing “Mark Target,” they can designate enemies for increased damage from themselves and their allies alike – further increasing his effectiveness in combat.

Bounty Hunters possess a special skill known as “Finish Him,” which deals extra damage to stunned or low health enemies. Not only does this demonstrate their lethal accuracy but it can be invaluable when facing opponents on the brink of defeat.

Party Synergy

The Bounty Hunter’s versatility enables him to fit seamlessly into various team compositions, from Highwayman or Grave Robber-based groups. By cooperating, these heroes can maximize their damage potential and overcome difficult encounters more efficiently.

Bounty Hunters make great additions to parties that prioritize dealing increased damage against marked targets, like Arbalest or Houndmaster heroes who can use his marks to ensure no enemy escapes their wrath.

Challenges and Strategies

Although he possesses impressive abilities, Bounty Hunters still face certain weaknesses. Their reliance on single-target damage means they may struggle against opponents with superior dodge or those that summon reinforcements quickly; additionally, enemies with high protection levels could thwart his attacks from having any effect at all.

To overcome these challenges, it is imperative to assemble an ideal party composition that can both strengthen the Bounty Hunter’s strengths while covering his weaknesses. Heroes that offer healing or buffs may help sustain him through protracted battles while those possessing area-of-effect attacks can assist with dealing with multiple enemies at once.


The Bounty Hunter in Darkest Dungeon 2 is an unstoppable force. Boasting his unique set of skills and abilities, he brings unprecedented battlefield control and damage potential to any party – whether you need a target eliminated or enemies disrupted, you can count on this hero for assistance.
