Hollow Infantry are enemies in Dark Souls II.


The Infantry soldiers who defended the Cardinal Tower against the Giants. They remain defending the keep despite their hollowed state.



The Hollow Infantry are one of the weakest enemies in the game. They can be found wielding a sword and shield, an axe, a bow, a dagger or even nothing at all, in which case, they'll fight bare-handed. They have low to very low health and are easily staggered. Sometimes they can play dead, but will arise and can easily surprise the unaware player. The player should be wary of fighting these enemies in large groups as they can overwhelm them.


The dagger wielding ones use a flurry attack similar to the Hollow attack from the original Dark Souls, they also use a single swing and lunge attack.

Sword and shield wielding ones occasionally strike three times in a row and will use their shield to block at times.

Bow wielding ones stay at a distance firing arrows at the player and will switch to a dagger when confronted at close range, using the dagger wielding hollow's moveset.

Axe wielding Infantry can perform a jumping attack which has a decent amount of distance to it and deal considerable damage. They will also do a two-handed downwards chop when close to the player.
