Grayson the Armorer (Level 27)

V Rising Boss Locations and Map Guide

Found in the Bandit Camp, Northwest of the Bandit Copper Mines. The armorer uses traps to slow you down and damage you overtime.

V Rising Boss Locations and Map Guide

You cannot find this boss using the Blood Altar. To find this boss you have to build the Vermin Nest and as a result of that, Putrid Rat will spawn.
