Health Tagilla Head: 100

Thorax: 320

Stomach: 260

Legs: 140 each

Total: 1220

  • Instead of the typical 4 single slot pockets, he has 5 triple slot pockets, bringing their total space to 15 slots.



Tagilla can be found on the Factory location. Due to the small size of the location he has to be expected everywhere.


He is batshit insane and will attempt to hammer you down. However, if you are in a position that he cannot path-find to, such as the rafters, he will use his secondary weapon (usually a shotgun) to kill you from a distance. He's active immediately at the start of raid. The boss can set ambushes, open suppressive fire, and breach if needed.


If you are using high penetrating ammunition, aim for his head, not his thorax. If you have low pen or high flesh damage, aim for his stomach since his armor only covers the thorax. The best plan of action is to bait out his swing so he's standing still, then shoot him. If you shoot while he's running at you, he'll just charge through it and absolutely murder you, so wait until he swings to shoot.

Tagillas welding masks do not protect his nape, therefore you can try to shoot him there. This strategy requires sneaking up behind him without you being detected, or a teammate that flanks him while he is fighting or chasing you.


Note that the primary weapons can have numerous mod variations and those shown below are examples.
Tagilla's Dead Blow Hammer is unlootable.

  • Trivia

    • Tagilla is the younger brother of Killa, the Boss on the Interchange location.
    • According to Jaeger in The Huntsman Path - Factory Chief, Tagilla is a former employee of the Chemical Plant No. 16, which is the Factory location.
    • Formerly, according to Jaeger in The Huntsman Path - Factory Chief, Tagilla's custom welding masks are inspired by Killa's custom Maska-1SCh helmet.
    • Russia has the Tagil river and the city of Nizhny Tagil, which became famous thanks to the meme "Tagil rulit" in the Russian part of the Internet. Briefly: The meme indicates indecent behavior while intoxicated.
      • Given this, and Tagilla's status as a worker at the Factory where TerraGroup was producing chemicals for drug research, it is possible that Tagilla's aggressive behavior and extreme physical toughness is caused by him being exposed to or otherwise under the influence of experimental drugs.
