Description and Strategy[]

Ingame description: "Desmodus, vampire bats, have teeth with razor-sharp incisors which penetrate their prey. Rather than suck blood, however, they allow the blood to flow and they lap it up with their tongue. They also have an anticoagulant substance in their saliva that helps keep the blood of their victims flowing during feeding. The Demodus can be found all around the castle, where they rest during the day, hidden from the sun. During the nights they roam the castle and its surroundings, looking for victims."

Demodus are advanced monsters, like the Feral Zombie and Demon, that only begin to appear after you reach the West Wing. These large bat-like creatures hover just above head level. They fly through the air at average speed, and claw at you with their wing tips when they get close enough it's a ghoul bat hybrid

The annoying thing about Demodus is that you can't corner them with melee attacks, because they can just fly sideways to strafe your next hit. This means you pretty much have

Dead Desmodus

to kill them with your firearms. They can survive slightly more damage than previous enemies (it takes 2 flintlock or musket shots to bring one down), so be prepared for a slightly tougher fight.

Since you can't instant-kill them with a shot from the flintlock or musket, and since melee attacks aren't effective at stunning them, the best weapon to use against the Demodus is the machinegun. Ten shots should be sufficient to bring one down. Although they fly, they really aren't too fast, and hitting them shouldn't be much of a problem.
