Sometime before Resident Evil Village’s release, the developers decided to let fans see their sights on one of the game’s main villains, Lady Dimitrescu. She ended up becoming an instant fan-favorite character because of her height and looks. This is one of the reasons why the game became popular as everyone was talking about the good-looking monster. However, now that the game is here, players need to put aside their feelings for her as she won’t hold herself back from killing you.
Just like the previous monster we talked about, Moreau, Lady Dimitrescu is also a powerful boss who is always thirsty for blood. You will encounter her when you’re trying to find the four mask locations. She will be constantly chasing and won’t let you find the four masks easily. Therefore, in order to make sure you don’t get killed by her, we are going to talk about how you can take down Lady Dimitrescu easily in Resident Evil Village.
How To Defeat Lady Dimitrescu in Resident Evil Village
You’ll first encounter Lady Dimitrescu when you enter Castle Dimitrescu. However, the important thing to keep in mind is that she isn’t going to instantly chase you. Before you even get to her, you will first have to take down her daughters. Once you’ve defeated them, she will become full of rage and will start hunting you down. The worst part is that if she sees you, then you’ll have nothing to do except running as you won’t be able to take her down using your weapons.
Find The Four Masks
Before you even think about fighting Lady Dimitrescu, first collect the four masks as they will play a key role in taking the monster down. While you’re locating the four masks, keep in mind that she will be constantly wandering around the corridors looking for you. Therefore, you must be careful with your movements as one wrong move will cost you your life.
Obtain The Knife
After you have successfully collected all four masks by avoiding getting killed, make no haste in placing them on the statues. This will open up a secret door, one which will lead you to an old tomb. Here, you will find a special knife. While you won’t be using this knife in combat with Lady Dimitrescu, it will help you with stopping her regenerating powers. In other words, making her weak. After you obtain the knife, there will be a cutscene where you’ll encounter the tall monster again. Once it’s over, it’s time to fight the mutated form.
Use Your Weapons
Now, the mutated form of Lady Dimitrescu might seem frightening, but you can take her down easily by following the right steps. The four-legged monster is extremely slow and the human body of Lady Dimitrescu is also present at the back. This is where weapons come in. Simply equip the pistol or the shotgun and start emptying them directly on the head. She will constantly try to attack you with various attacks, so make sure to avoid as many of them as possible to avoid losing a lot of health.
She will also jump in the air and this is where you should use a sniper. If you manage to land a perfect headshot, the four-legged monster will cry out in pain. This will cause it to return onto the ground and you can then once again start shooting at her with your pistol and shotgun.
Use Pipe Bombs
In addition to the above-mentioned weapons, we will suggest you craft some Pipe Bombs as well. This is because some players might find it difficult to dodge the attacks. However, staying back and throwing Pipe Bombs towards her will help you take her down without you taking any damage.
Don’t Waste Bullets
The most important thing to keep in mind is that you should not waste any bullets. Always make sure to aim properly and land perfect headshots. However, you will still end up missing a few of them. If you happen to run out of bullets while fighting Lady Dimitrescu, then you can simply break the crates that will be scattered throughout the arena. Most of them will have ammo inside. You can also use crafting materials to make more ammo.
Once you have done enough damage to her, Lady Dimitrescu will finally get defeated, causing her to crash into the castle below. After getting eliminated, she will also drop a crystal version of herself, something that you can sell to Dutch in return for a chunk of Lei.
This was how you can defeat Lady Dimitrescu in Resident Evil Village. We hope that our guide will help you out.
