I'm currently trying to work out how to kill my nemesis, who's survived death twice. I nearly got him a third time, but he keeps calling in reinforcements, multiple times. While I've managed to thin the herd, its pretty hard to kill someone with quick life regeneration (and a ton of other buffs) while I'm trying also needing to deal with an ever increasing cloud of lackeys.

Is there any way I can interrupt a Uruk calling in reinforcements in Shadow of Mordor?

One thing you can try is taking him down with FEAR

It works pretty well. You just have to find a way of fearing him and he will become weak!

Easy to grab and easy to kill!

For the strat I would first check if he has any Vulnerabilities:

Vulnerable to Stealth Finishers - Can be killed instantly using stealth finishers;

Vulnerable to Combat Finishers - Can be killed instantly using combat finishers; Vulnerable to Ranged Attacks - Can be killed by a single charged headshot, fire arrow, or shadow strike;

Vulnerable to Mounted Beasts - Can be killed instantly by mounted beast finishers;

Clumsy - Can be grabbed without needing to lower his health Branded (Once dominated) Can be grabbed without requiring low health

Then, after that I would go for your best bet of winning such a strong opponent! FEAR!

Fear of Caragors - Becomes terrified at the sight of Caragors;

Fear of Ghuls - Becomes terrified at the sight of Ghuls;

Fear of Graugs - Becomes terrified at the sight of Graugs;

Fear of Burning - Becomes terrified when burned;

Fear of Morgai Flies - Becomes terrified when exposed to Morgai Flies;

Fear of his Rival - Becomes terrified when near a potential rival;

Fear of Betrayal - Becomes terrified when Uruks fight together (Branded vs. Free);

Fear of the Gravewalker - Becomes terrified at the sight of Talion;

Devise your strategy with these things in mind and you will surely kill him.


Well I think the skill you're looking for is

Summoner - Calls out nearby allies in a fight.

Basically he will always call allies to the fight so your best bet is using AOE attacks.

One really good at high levels is Wraith Burn.

So to sum all this up, you can stop him by killing him (dominating him) or running away (not that I think you want to do that anyway). And deal with the crowds using the strats I stated above.

  • Oh, I do intend to kill him eventually. However, with the stronghold uruks, I just need to shoot someone in the head or otherwise kill him to keep reinforcements from coming in. I'm curious about a specific enemy skill and a way to counter that directly if possible Commented Oct 19, 2014 at 13:49

  • I'm not convinced if it answers my question entirely. You did mention the skill name, but not how to actually stop him from calling in allies (or that its not possible) Commented Oct 22, 2014 at 8:49
  • @JourneymanGeek basically what I'm saying is that the only way to stop him is killing him or running away. I'll edit to make it more clear. Commented Oct 22, 2014 at 8:50

If the Uruk has the Summoner ability, no.

But you can deal with it by using his Fear against him so he runs away - he will leave behind his allies and won't summon more while he is running away. You can then deal with him alone. I recommend using Pinning Shot to stop him (once he gets far enough away from the summoned allies that they aren't a problem) so he doesn't disappear on you.

@Lokuzt did a nice job of summarizing the Fear options.
