Strategy

Captain Traunt has one bar of non-regenerating shields and one bar of health. During his first phase (when his shields are above half) he uses cryo attacks, creating ice walls and cryo pools as well as launching large cryo orbs that will travel around the perimeter of the arena. When his shields are below half, he will switch to incendiary, creating pools of lava and launching incendiary orbs. When his shield is depleted, he will alternate between both elements.

Like any Maliwan Heavy, Captain Traunt's critical hit location is the large pack on his back, and well-aimed shots with a shotgun or sniper rifle can quickly kill him.
