I use the crossbow and shoot them in the mouth when they open up to spit at me. Even doing that, it seems to take at least two-three shots to kill just one of them. =\

Their mouth has to be open for them to take damage. If there's a cluster of em you can just toss a grenade at them.

Grenades and full whale oil tanks can kill them even when their mouth is closed.

Grenade if there's a cluster, pistol shot in the mouth when they're about to spit.

Incendiary bolts had no effect on closed krusts when I tried.

Best shot is the grenade, as is said.

However, it's generally easy to slow time or blink past them.

Ahh. Thank you for confirming.

When their closed only explosive damage penetrates the shell, so explosive bullets can be used for single river krusts, but by the time you can actually even use explosive bullets, grenades/sticky grenades are almost always a better option, since you'll typically encounter groups of river krusts in the flooded district.

I've even killed them with bricks(hard to do but bricks hit hard) in the flooded district until I found out grenades penetrated their shells.

Exploding bottles don't actually break if you hit an open river krust directly.
