Lethal Company Nutcracker Guide: How to Beat it & Can You Kill it?

The Nutcracker is a creepy Christmas-themed enemy in Lethal Company with a deadly shotgun. Fortunately, it can be beaten.

Lethal Company is constantly getting updated with new enemies, items, and more. One such enemy, the Nutcracker, was introduced in the recent Update 45. That update aimed to bring some slightly twisted Christmas cheer to this terrifying horror game. The Nutcracker is a truly formidable opponent, and that’s likely leaving many wondering how they beat it. Fortunately, that’s where we come in. Below, we explain what the Nutcracker is, how to beat it, and if you can kill it.

What Is the Nutcracker in Lethal Company?

The Nutcracker is a creepy new enemy in Lethal Company introduced in Update 45. It has a single eye that pops out from the Nutcracker’s head and searches for players. It also has a shotgun. Only one Nutcracker can spawn at a time, and its location in the Facility will be completely random. However, there is a higher chance that it will spawn on the Titan, Rend, and Dine moons due to their more challenging threat level.

How to Beat the Nutcracker in Lethal Company

To beat the Nutcracker, you can either avoid its gaze by hiding behind cover while it searches or sneak up behind it while it scans to steal its shotgun. You simply need to press E while its eye is out looking for you to take the shotgun and use it against it. Of course, if you do take its shotgun, you better be prepared to take it down quickly. The Nutcracker will use melee attacks once its shotgun has been taken and is still just as deadly.

Alternatively, you can attack it with a shovel or sign. The best time to do this is immediately after it has fired its shotgun. The Nutcracker will shoot its shotgun twice in a row before reloading, and its reload time is about 3 seconds. While this isn’t loads of time, it should give you enough time to get around it and hit it in the back. It’s also worth noting that the Nutcracker doesn’t move when it shoots, which should allow you to successfully hide behind cover.

Can You Kill the Nutcracker in Lethal Company

Yes, you can kill the Nutcracker in Lethal Company. It will take roughly four to five hits with a shovel to take it down completely, after which you’ll be able to take its shotgun and bullets freely. It is one of the few enemies in Lethal Company that can actually be killed, and the reward for doing so is great. The shotgun is truly deadly, and while it can be taken without killing the Nutcracker, it is easier to do so when it’s dead. However, it’s tough to take down. So, unless you feel confident, it’s best to avoid it completely.
