Decapitation won't stop the foes in Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone

Geralt of Rivia has found himself opposite all kinds of opponents. Ghouls and beasts and insects and vampires -- the list goes on and on. So, when he's facing boring ol' humans, well, that's about as mundane as his life gets. But, Witcher ...
