Hollow Infantry Information


"Clad in rotting versions of the Infantry Set, and found primarily in the Forest of Fallen Giants, these hollowed dregs were once the rank-and-file low-ranking soldiers of the Kingdom of Drangleic. Functionally little more than militiamen, they have weaker weapons and equipment than their Royal Knight brethren, but maintain some semblance of their original skills and have a predilection for hunting in packs. Though not very dangerous individually, Hollow Infantry have a notorious tendency to appear in large groups, where their threat level increases exponentially. Dealing with them piecemeal is the best tactic, though weapons with large, sweeping strikes can help deal with them in groups. Beware their attack flurry; though somewhat rare, this attack can do considerable damage and break the guard of the unprepared. They can also perform guard break maneuvers."

      The unarmed one has a grab attack, like a real soldier does, it will smother your character's boo*ies... They do it rarely, I've seen it myself a few times... And there are videos in YouTube, search Dark Souls 2 Grab Attacks or something.
