Trained in reconnaissance, the sleek and slender Huntress deploys deadly traps and explosives, but don’t let her physique perplex you. This elegant she‐devil is trained in ranged weaponry and is sure to always hit her mark. Raining down arrows and ammo from above, the enemy never sees her coming.

The Huntress is a hero class who specializes in ranged weapons. She is one of the four original heroes in Dungeon Defenders.


The Huntress utilizes traps which have a small trigger area inside of a larger area of effect. This smaller radius can be adjusted with the +/- keys when placing a trap. A smaller detection range might make the trap more efficient with its limited detonations, but fast-moving enemies will be more likely to get passed it.
