The Icebound Giant is the first boss of Darksiders II.
Similar enemies called Frost Giants appear in the Argul's Tomb DLC.
The Icebound Giant serves as an introduction to brute-type opponents so Death should use the battle as an opportunity to learn its tactics in preparation for later encounters. The monster attacks with slow but powerful fists slams so it is recommended to circle around the boss where its attacks are less likely to connect. Death should employ a hit and run strategy against the Giant and rely on his superior speed and evasion to bring it down.
