How To Kill With Unarmed Strike In Baldur’s Gate 3

An Unarmed Strike is an action in Baldur's Gate 3 that allows you to hurt the enemies with your bare fists and facilitate the Monk Class in general.

Baldur’s Gate 3 is extremely versatile when it comes to offensive capabilities. While you can go on axe swinging or sword slashing into any fight, BG3 allows you to humiliate your enemies by killing them with an Unarmed strike. This action allows you to deliver some punishment upon your enemies with your bare fists.

How to use Unarmed Strike in BG3

An Unarmed Strike is an action that any class can perform in BG3. However, there are some very specific conditions to perform the Unarmed strike. 

  • If you are using any class other than Monk, make sure that you remove or unequip any weapon in your hands. 
  • Make sure the distance between you and the target enemy is 1.5m or less. 
  • Select the Unarmed Strike action from the list and perform a fist attack on them. 
  • Monks get a special ability that allows them to use an unarmed attack as a bonus action in BG3 after performing an action with their weapon. 

Using Unarmed Strike puts you at a disadvantage against the enemies. Make sure that you only use it to unlock a specific achievement or if the enemy is already down and out. An unarmed strike is also necessary if you want to incapacitate an enemy with a non-lethal attack

To deal a massive amount of damage with an Unarmed Strike, we recommend that you multiclass Way of Open Fist Monk with a Tavern Brawler rogue in BG3. This will grant you 2 attacks and three bonus actions. With this, you will be able to perform up to 300 damage in one turn. The major requirement for this build includes Gloves of Soul Catching and Boots of Uninhibited Kushigo, along with 20 Wisdom ability.

How to unlock the Fist of Fury achievement in Baldur’s Gate 3

To obtain Fits of Fury achievement, you need to kill an enemy with an Unarmed Strike. The easiest way to obtain this achievement is by using Monks against weaker enemies due to their proficiency in fighting without weapons.
