Bestiary
The remains of a bug, animated by a strange force. Wields a nail and shell.

Softened by generations of luxury, these bugs lack claws or armour or venom. Those who wish to protect themselves are forced to fashion weapons from stone, ore or shell.

Dialogue Bottom

Husk Warriors are enemies in Hollow Knight. Unlike most other husks of their size, these reanimated corpses use a nail and shell when fighting.[1]

Behaviour and Tactics

Patrols back and forth. Once disturbed, it defends with its shield, even if the Knight attempts to perform a downstrike. When it attacks, it will perform three consecutive strikes before defending with its shield again.

The fastest way to kill it is to attack it from the front, it will then block the attack and begin its attack sequence. While it's attacking, jump and attack it from above. The Knight can also downstrike repeatedly until the enemy is dead.

Trivia

"These vicious, mindless ghouls were once ordinary bugs like you and me. Something below the surface has burnt away their souls and filled them with an aimless rage."
