The boss fight with Urias
Shortly after using the typewriter, you will get close to the cave under the Stronghold in the picture above. Before you jump down, make sure you are well prepared - you should be healed and have the better weapons and gadgets ready.
Urias will appear on the top shelf - he is a troll that will use a big hammer during the fight.
Some time will pass between Urias appearing on the upper rock ledges and him jumping into the arena. You can take advantage of this and set up some mines in the area and try shooting at the boss (preferably with a sniper).
An important note is that there are numerous alcoves and crates to destroy in different parts of the cave that have loot. You don't have to collect all the loot at the very beginning of the battle, but it is worth remembering to collect new items from the area now and then.
The loot you collect can also help you craft ammunition, mines, or bombs when your supply runs out - it is a good way to use more powerful weapons and gadgets.
Unfortunately, the boss performs many attacks that are difficult to block and deals heavy damage. One such attack is hitting the ground with a hammer with great force. If you see the boss preparing for such an attack, try to move away or blind him (more on that later).
A very dangerous attack is a long jump combined with a hammer strike to the ground. The troll can perform them while moving on the lower level or jumping from a higher ledge. In both cases, the best tactic is to keep moving in to avoid finding yourself under the troll's feet.
Urias can perform powerful charges and a series of spin attacks. Again, try to stop it or hide behind one of the columns.
Covers are also a great way to avoid damage when a boss pulls out a pole and throws it. Stand where the thrown object will not hit you.
The aforementioned mines are great for weakening the boss, but you can also rely, for example, on pipe bombs or explosive projectiles fired from a grenade launcher.
If you have a magnum or a sniper rifle and a supply of ammo, you can try to hit the boss in the head. The most versatile weapon is the shotgun, and using a pistol is a last resort.
Flashbangs, which can be fired by a grenade launcher, are very helpful in battle. They can blind bosses and other enemies, exposing them to follow-up attacks or allowing you to prepare for the further fight. It is a good idea to switch regularly between the two grenade launcher's main ammunition types.
The boss will return to the top shelf now and then and call for reinforcements. In that situation, you should focus on eliminating those Lycans that threaten the main character.
When fighting Lycans, don't stop in one place because Urias can still perform the jump combined with using the hammer. If the boss has joined fighting among regular monsters, use the grenade launcher or pipe bombs to attack several enemies at once.
The troll is very durable, so this fight can take a few minutes and probably will use up most of Ethan's supplies. As a reward for defeating Urias, you will get the very valuable Crystal Hammer treasure.
Getting the Torso Flask and leaving the stronghold
Defeating the boss unlock the cave exit. Go through the hall with the crystals (although it's optional, you can collect as many of them as possible).
You will reach a room with a TV on, next to which is the last fourth Torso Flask with Rose's fragment.
You have to go through some longer tunnels and use a new boat. You have the option to explore a mini-dungeon along the way.
Ultimately, you will exit through a crypt in the Graveyard in the central part of the village.
Building the Giant's Chalice
Return to Altar and place the recently acquired Torso Flask in the central mechanism. You will gain a new quest item called Giant's Chalice, which you will use to unlock the way to the Factory.
Important note - Get all your errands done in the village before you head to Heisenberg's Factory. After entering the factory, the option to return to the central part of the village will be blocked. We recommend focusing on finding all the treasures and secret locations in the village using the gadgets you have collected so far (e.g. the crank and wheel for the well).
We also recommend creating a manual save with the use of the typewriter before heading to the factory. This will allow you to easily return to the village in case you need it, e.g. for trophy-related activities.
