Instead of the typical x4 single slot pockets, Gluhar has 5 double slot, bringing their total space to 10 slots.
Location[edit | edit source]
Gluhar can be found on the map Reserve.
Gluhar will spawn at the beginning of the raid at the train yard, black bishop and black pawn buildings near the heli-pad, in the bunker basement, and near or inside the black knight building.
Behavior[edit | edit source]
Gluhar and his many guards are extremely hostile. It's very unlikely to find success while fighting in any open areas. Small hallways and closed rooms are preferable.
As for Gluhar, because of his high chest health he can withstand high damage bullets that would otherwise instantly kill other enemies. The only effective means of killing Gluhar quickly are head shots. Gluhar's ASh-12 12.7x55 assault rifle will kill most targets almost instantly.
Gluhar and his guards are very accurate. If his location is known, stay away from windows and his direct line of sight as it is very difficult to win in a long-ranged battle with him.
Followers[edit | edit source]
Gluhar has up to 6 followers with a wide assortment of weapons and gear.
The Guards have a wide variety of weapons, usually Assault rifles that are usually loaded with tracer ammunition, primary or back up Shotguns, an occasional Designated marksman rifle, and primary or backup Submachine guns. They typically have high-grade Armor vests, and tier 3-5 helmets that sometimes have visors.
All the guards' names are one-word nicknames, similar to Scav Raiders.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
The best way to kill Gluhar quickly is to get in close and make him your first target. He can be distinguished by his black T-shirt with grey pants and, at most, a light plate carrier, compared to his Guards who wear assorted types of camouflaged clothing and heavy armor. Upon seeing the player, the guards will attempt to either circle Gluhar to protect him or overwhelm the player(s) with force.
The Guards often push the player(s) in pairs or try to perform flanking maneuvers, however, they typically try to stay in a close radius of each other to provide support. Additionally, one-two guards stay back with the Boss, unless the Boss has already been killed, in which case they will seek out nearby players. Due to their ability to push players hard and fast while having a base of accurate covering fire, it is recommended to engage the Guards as close as possible.
The Guards are also capable of using grenades and flashbangs, so groups of players will need to beware of their spacing when engaging the Guards.
