One of the toughest elites in Diablo 4 are those with the suppressor affix, as they essentially force you into close quarters combat.
Elite affixes are special abilities that certain elite and boss enemies have that make them harder to fight. This affix is usually a passive ability that keeps triggering when the player tries to deal with it.
For classes like Necromancer, Rogue, and Warlock in Diablo 4, the suppressor affix is especially tricky to deal with because it affects ranged attacks. However, in this guide, we’ll show you all the best tricks for dealing with these enemies, even if you’re on world tier 4. If you need cheap d4 gold or items, you can buy them from D4Golds.com.
What are the suppressor affixes in diablo 4
Any elite enemy with the suppressor affix will be immune to ranged attacks outside its range of effect. This is because this appendage acts as a protective barrier.
You’ll know Elites have the Suppressor affix because it will say “Suppressor” below the health bar, with a small barrier icon next to it.
This does affect some structures that use ranged attacks to do most of their damage and act as glass cannons. It makes the player more vulnerable, and depending on which attack arrives first, it could decide the fate of a battle.
It also prevents damage from any abilities cast outside the protective barrier. If you use Barbarian outside the barrier and cast Whirlwind, it will have no effect on the elite even if you are inside the barrier.
To successfully damage an enemy with the Inhibitor affix, you need to cast the ability within a protective barrier. Many players actually had issues with this affix and thought it needed to be nerfed a bit from its current state.
However, this mainly affects players at higher world tiers, as more difficult enemies may one-shot players who are unable to cast abilities.
How to beat elites with suppressor affixes
To defeat an Elite with the Inhibitor affix, you need to cast attacks within their protective barrier and deal damage without leaving the area. The easiest way to do this is to cast a defense/move ability on yourself and activate a powerful ability within the barrier.
They are immune to any abilities you cast outside the barrier. This means that even if you use a sustained area attack like the Sorcerer’s Hydra ability or even the Barbarian’s Whirlwind, it won’t have any effect unless you cast it inside the barrier.
The barrier looks like a small purple dome that follows the elite, so it’s easy to see the area it affects.
