'Ard Boyz wear heavy armour pieced together from steel plates and equipment scavenged from defeated foes. Their armour and natural resilience makes them able to wade through fire that would shred most Orks. The 'Ard Boy also wields a heavy riot shield to get close to the player and a choppa to deal out some pain.

Strategy Edit

'Ard Boyz will start appearing from Chapter 6 onwards. There is generally only a couple of them at once. They can protect themselves with the shield fairly well from both ranged and melee attacks, and make stunning/staggering swipes with the shield. They have no ranged weapon, so you can safely kite and avoid them, though.

You cannot stun an 'Ard Boy with a single combo, but if you are not pressed by other enemies, chaining Interrupt stun combinations will keep it staggered and it will eventually be stunned. You can also concentrate ranged fire on it though this is wasteful if you are short of ammo (note that a charged shot from your Plasma Pistol will knock it down with its shield out of the way, allowing further shots or melee attacks to hit properly), use explosives, or try to roll behind it to bypass the shield.

The Execution animation for 'Ard Boyz is especially entertaining, as Titus tears the shield from the Ork's grasp and proceeds to beat him down with it, finally decapitating the 'Ard Boy with it.
