Grim Soul Guide: How to Defeat the Night Guest

So, have you met the Night Guest in Grim Soul yet? Well, if you did, you probably know already that it is impossible to even do a hint of damage, no matter what weapon you use to attack it. But how to defeat the Night Guest in Grim Soul: Dark Fantasy Survival? Read on and you’ll find out!

We’ve already covered this in our Grim Soul tips and tricks article, so if you’ve read it you already know everything. But if you haven’t read it (which you should, it’s really useful), we have a detailed guide on how to survive each encounter with the Night Guest – and do so easily.

The Night Guest is a pretty impressive and scary monster that appears randomly during the night, as its name suggests. At the moment of writing this article, there is not a single weapon in the game that can damage it. As a result, you can imagine that encounters with it usually end pretty bad for the player.

But even though you can’t really damage or kill the monster, you can still defeat it. Just think a bit out of the box and don’t think that “defeat” means “destroy”.

With this in mind, here is how to defeat the Night Guest in Grim Soul:

1. The easiest way to do it is to equip a torch and attack it with it. The Dark Guest hates fire (and light, probably) so this will scare it away. This won’t harm the monster in any way, but it won’t be able to do any damage either to your character.

This is by far the easiest method to get rid of the horrible enemy no matter where you are in the world, so make sure that you’re always carrying a torch!

2. Another easy way to get rid of it, if you are at your home base, is to simply enter your house. The monster won’t be able to follow and will move away looking for easier prey to capture.

3. If you don’t mind leaving some loot behind, you can always run away to the sides of the area into the fog and simply leave the location. You can come back later – preferably during day time, when the monster won’t be there to annoy you.

4. If you don’t want to leave the area, look on the minimap for the red circles painted on the ground. If you run to one and just stay there, the Night Guest will not be able to attack you and it will leave the area, eventually.

5. Finally, if you are a really dedicated player and you want to truly incarcerate it, you can go into base building mode and simply build a single square, walled-in structure around the Dark Guest. This works at the moment but might be patched in future updates since it’s a relatively easy and cheap way to avoid the doom it usually brings.

So these would be all the methods you have on hand to get rid of the Night Guest in Grim Soul. Future updates might bring us actual weapons to harm it, but I personally like it the way it is.

Having an impossible to defeat creature in a survival game brings a new layer of challenge and makes things a lot more difficult. I like it, especially since it’s not impossible to actually get rid of it!

Grim Soul Guide: How to Defeat the Night Guest


    • Simply go into build mode and press the floor you want to upgrade. Required items (10 planks + 10 rocks for plank floor) will be displayed. Good luck with your base!

  1. just a guess but it might actually be able to be defeated, but like the dragon in toram online a long 2-3 hour fight, im not saying you can but if someone could test it, itd be great. also a guess if and i say if its possible it may give the best reward (obviously)

    • I got the Night Guest trapped in my house as it was chasing me and got really close and followed me through the door. It then just constantly tried to get away from me and I whaled on it for a while with no damage, though I only had the blacksmith hammer.

  2. I think there is going to be a way to kill the night guest considering in the loading screen it says that if you are lucky enough to get the night guest scythe or whatever it carries, that it kills enemies with one hit.

  3. Nah…….. The night guest sickle doesn’t work on the night guest itself I’ve used it on him. Even the scripts or spells like control spell and fear spell didn’t work on him. The night guest itself does a lot of damage if u don’t have an armor and that too rapidly so fighting the night guest is pointless. The most hilarious incident is trapping a night guest. You can’t see it in the day so don’t think that it has gone its still there so don’t break the wall. Anyways best of luck…….


  4. I have managed to hurt the night guest down to at least 25% with the ghost sword, the ice sword hurts it too according to higher lvl players but im still yet to obtain that to try myself… also it took about 40min plus 50 or more bandages honey water and even cooked meat so best of luck anyone else trying to, hope there is legendary loot

  5. I think they should make one weapon that you can kill the night guest with, but kills it very slowly. So you can really only kill it with skill.
