Focus on pushing targets off the edge instead of shooting them to pieces.  The Increased knockback and ranged upgrades are especially helpful for this.  Clear the targets in waves, fanning outwards. Since there is a fountain nearby, the player can equip Falling Malt and Werewhiskey (if possible) and repeatedly fall off the edge of the map, damaging targets when they land, and healing before death when necessary. This means fewer shots are needed to destroy every target.

  • Cael Hammer : Kid's about to get real personal with hammer and musket in hand.
  • Fang Repeater : Doesn't hurt having a couple of trusty old guns on hand.
  • Breaker's Bow : A bow ain't much good in a crowd, but a musket sure is.
  • War Machete : Anything survives a musket shot oughta be quick work for that blade.
  • Dueling Pistols : Nothing subtle about those guns, but maybe that's the point.
  • Brusher's Pike : Want to keep the wilds at bay, pack yourself a musket and a pike.
  • Army Carbine : No more fooling around, time to roll out the big guns and get this over with.
  • Fire Bellows : Ever see a Kid with a musket and a fire bellows? Bit of a disturbing sight.
