The RPG revelation of 2023, Baldur’s Gate 3, has brought a lot of heat to the discussion of what is allowed in a fair fight. Some players are trying the most awesome tactics to defeat their enemies in this incredible D&D-inspired adventure, and this one-hit KO is one of the finest.

Baldur’s Gate 3 has offered players all over the world the chance to enact their wildest RPG dreams. Be it that they would love to play as a Law Abiding Paladin or a heinous Necromancer, the BG3 community is flourishing with the epic tales of adventurous shenanigans.

This Baldur’s Gate 3 player showcased what it means to improvise and to use the game mechanics in your favor. In one of the most awesome takedowns ever witnessed since the game was released, they defeated one of the strongest bosses in the game in just one hit.

Posted by Reddit user ‘chenvoso,’ this clip showcases how they managed to deal more than 1000 damage in just one attack during Act 1 of Baldur’s Gate 3.

To accomplish this feat, the OP had to buff its character with Enlarge, then drink a Potion of the Colossus, and shapeshift into a giant Owlbear to take down Grim, the guardian of the Grimforge, using one of the most lethal abilities this beast has: ‘Crushing Flight.’

The enormous automaton was previously ‘heated’ by the lava of the forge, which turns it vulnerable to bludgeoning damage. Following the mechanics required to defeat it and showing quite a display of smoothness, this player has proven that there are many ways to defeat your opponents in Baldur’s Gate 3.

Not long ago, another player managed to solo one of the hardest bosses in the entire game, using an incredible Arcane Archer build. But chenvoso’s feat surely stirred a lot of responses from the BG3 community as well.

One of the players commenting on the OP’s post explained: “A classic meme. It’s often referred to as the ‘Owlbear from the top rope’ build.” Meanwhile, a surprised user expressed: “Oh my god this is a thing!?!? I love this haha. I fought Gryn the hard way.”

There are many ways to play Baldur’s Gate 3, and just in case you are looking for an alternate build, this Ninja Rogue multiclass might interest you. But if you are looking for something more sinister, this Warbreaker Paladin build can hurt a lot.
