The Pit Fighter is a Fanatic enemy found in Darkest Dungeon II encountered only in The Sprawl.

Description[ | ]

Once, he fought for coin and kitchen scraps in shady underground fighting rings. Now, he fights for nothing else but the fire that surrounds him. A towering, pot-bellied behemoth, The Pit Fighter is the largest of the Sprawl enemies. Unlike his fellow Fanatics, this brawler foregoes hooded robes and is nude from the chest-up, exposing his bald and eyeless head. He protects his stomach with a large piece of metal that features the symbol of the Iron Crown.

By using his signature ability, Accelerant, the Pit Fighter grows faster and deals more Burn on hit as the fight progresses. Accelerant functions similarly to Ignite, a free action that grants stat buffs and strengthened abilities, however - unlike Ignite - Accelerant's buff incrementally increases with each round (as seen in the table below.) Accelerant cannot be used during the first round and will be used before Pit Fighter's first turn on round 2. The Pit Fighter's strength can become overwhelming if he is left unchecked so he must be put down as quickly as possible.

The Pit Fighter bullies front-line heroes two brutal punches each round. He has a mean right hook and a massive uppercut that leaves his target Dazed and mispositioned.

Trivia[ | ]

  • In early versions of the game, the Pit Fighter would use Accelerant at the start of each round, starting on round 2. Players felt that he was getting too many turns, so Accelerant's buff was changed to increase each round without playing the animation while still functioning the same.
  • The metal that Pit Fighter wears on his stomach resembles a Championship Belt, a reward typically granted to winners of Pro. Wrestling Championships.
