911-Evolve The Evolve Tip/Hint Hotline


#1

Welcome to the Evolve Tips and Hints Hotline. The purpose of this thread is to create a more organized and updated tip source along with collecting the names of various experienced players who play each character as to be able to increase the chances of getting responses for new inquires. This may start out slowly but should be able to replace the older general Tip thread (which hasnt been updated since Feburary/Apr)

Beginning of Discussion


If you wish to submit/suggest tips/hints, please try to do so in this format for each character you are helping with so i can add it to the hunter's section.

Hunter:
Suggested Perk (Primary and Secondary):

  1. A tip on how to play your character
  2. A tip on how to counter this character
  3. A tip for your teammates
  4. A general tip involving gameplay against a specific monster/situation.

the purpose of the hotline list is to give a list of forum users who are skilled enough with a character so that if someone asks a question in this thread, they know who they could tag that could answer the question about that character with more reliability. This would increase the chances of FAQ’s being answered, possibly lower thread count even more (as 911 is referenced for emergencies so it should be noticeable) and has an easy to reference name (check out the 911-tip thread etc). This is a test at first but should work out.

Note to Mods/Leaders:
I would like to see how this new tip thread set-up will work so please avoid closing it for the time being. Templating is not yet finished so please hold any modifications to the thread

Parnell

- Suggested Perk(s)
Movement speed x2 (most popular)
Capacity x1
Reload Speed x1

- How to Play With
- Always stay close to the monster when you use your shotgun, aim for head shot or the chest ONLY and don’t spam the Super Soldier. Wait for the right opportunity.
- In the dome try and stay within 15-20m of the monster and focus on the shotgun. Avoid using your Super Soldier when in close distance for the fear of being pounced and having it wasted, however, using Super Soldier as a way to protect a teammate is a good idea.
- When chasing the monster, try to use Super Soldier as much as possible to keep up with it and deny feeding/armor.
- Always try to time it so that SS is off cooldown when the dome drops. How often you can use SS depends on how much your medic pays attention
- Its best to use Super Soldier when on a straightaway or going uphill, that way you make the most out of the extra speed and jump height and save your jetpack fuel for the easier parts of your route.

- How to Play Against
- Try to keep your distance from him and push him back using your Crowd Control, you can also take advantage of his super soldier if it’s used incorrectly.
- Stay away from Parnell, especially when you know SS is ready. If SS is on cooldown you can try to hurt him or bait the shield, but its like getting in Hyde’s face: he wants you to do that.
- When he pops SS too close to you, pounce him then follow it up with something fast and tumbly (charge, heavy, vortex, etc.) to waste it as much as possible, then run.
- Parnell is actually the easiest assault to down, although the recent changes have made it harder. When he starts chasing you with Super soldier after a dome and wont let you eat, use cover and try to wait for him to go out too far and pounce him to waste the shield. As soon as he pops it, run and feed fast before the inevitable dome. Without a shield its harder for him to keep pressure on you, this goes for any assault.

- How to Play Alongside
- Always give Parnell the monster’s location so he can get the evolve damage.
- Trapper: you have to do your job VERY well with your crowd control so that he can get good damage.
- Medic: you have to be extra careful because of Parnell’s super soldier, it will cause him to lose some health.
- With the new [5.1] patch, Val is the best medic to use with Parnell at this point. If you’re confident with Slim he is just as good. Val compliments Parnell’s ability to chase with tranqs and should almost always be paired with him outside the dome. Slim has the bug for long range heals and spores make it harder for the monster to find Parnell up close in a fight.
- Cabot and Sunny are the best supports for Parnell. Cabot’s amp makes each super soldier count and he is just as annoying outside of the dome when it comes to stopping the monster from feeding. Sunny’s jetpack booster makes the pressure from Parnell even stronger, and if you communicate well you can cycle it with super soldier and Parnell’s jetpack for maximum distance.
- Any trapper works well with Parnell, but Griffin/Jack work best because of their ability to stop the monster dead in its tracks. Griffin more so on the chase and less so in the dome, Jack the opposite.

- Situational/General Tips
- You need to learn how to keep up with the monster outside of the dome to make Parnell work against any decent monster. Don’t let every dome become an arena dome with the monster at full armor and staged up.
- You need to learn to keep up with the monster inside the dome to make Parnell work at all.

Lennox

- Suggested Perk(s)
Jetpack Recharge x1
Damage Increase x1

- How to Play With
- Lennox requires more movement skills to get the most DPS out of her than other assaults. Use your jetpack to circle around or over the monster whenever it turns to you and keep your plasma lance as your primary weapon when you do.

- How to Play Against
- Lennox is an assault that can heavily hurt you when your focusing another hunter. Keep your eye of her and keep moving. It doesn’t take long for her lance to multiply and even less time to melt your armor

- How to Play Alongside
- Characters like Maggie/Griffin are great with Lennox as their crowd control holds the monster in place instead of just showing them down while characters like Sunny/Hank give Lennox extra combat mobility or prevent damage to keep the lance up.

- Situational Tips
- Use your Thunderstrike whenever a monster turns around to hit you while using your lance. It doesn’t cancel out the lance, gets you back behind them, and avoids their melee(or roll) damage while dealing extra damage itself. Much better then using your jetpack.

Hunter: Crow
Suggested Perk(s): Jump Boost, Reload Speed

  1. Send out Gobi as soon as he recharges!
  2. Get up close, he has difficulties fighting at close range.
  3. Keep the monster far and draw aggro. Crow will be able to use his stun rifle more effectively.
  4. When focused by the monster, whip out your stun rifle and use rapid fire shots while jetpacking onto high ground.

Am I doing it right?


#9

Yup. As soon I finish the templates, I’ll be sure to add yours to crow. XD

Did you wish to be added to the hotline list when I get that up?


#10

Yes please :smile:


#11

Ok. That basically means that if someone has a question involving Crow, you will be one of the names listed as a potential person to tag in order to get a quicker response. :smiley:


#12

Dont wanna sound like a party pooper but wouldn’t this come under what you’re trying to do?


#13

I’d like to point out that that thread(s) are based off old data values and only covers the base characters. They have also not been updated since July or earlier

In addition, this thread will cover the general tips/strategies that are given to it but will cover all the characters and will also contain a list of players on the forum who can be tagged when someone has a specific characters questions or situations that can’t be found.

Ex.

Gobacuga has given some tips on crow. He has also said he’d be happy to be on Crows Hotline List. This means if anyone has a question involving Crow, they can look at the list of people who are experienced with him and they can tag Gobacuga in their reply directly in hopes of a quicker response instead of making a new thread or replying to an older crow thread in hopes that someone passes by it.

Lennox

  • Suggested Perk(s)
    Jetpack Recharge
    Damage Increase

  • How to Play With
    Lennox requires a lot of movement skill to get the most DPS out of her. Use your jetpack to circle around or over the monster whenever it turns to you and keep your plasma lance as your primary weapon.

  • How to Play Against
    Never turn your back on her or take your eyes off her. It doesn’t take long to increase the lance multiplier to 4x and after that you’re health and armor melts quickly. It’s better to face her head on than to turn around.

  • How to Play Alongside
    Lennox needs help by the team by choosing characters with good crowd control that hold the monster in place rather than just slow then down. It’s also good to run other priority rather based characters that the monster would want to focus on in order for Lennox to get the monster from behind.

  • Situational Tips
    When facing behemoth and he turns around to target you while you’re lancing. Just use your thunderstrike instead of your jetpack. It gets you behind him while dealing the extra damage and it doesn’t stop your lance multiplier while preventing him from hitting you from his roll or a melee…


#15

I would include the Jetpack management thread and have links to each individual hunters suggestion/tips thread


#16

I thought about doing the individual threads but not the jetpack one. I’ll update it now. give me a minute.

Feel free to toss some info in here for me to add if you want. :stuck_out_tongue:


#17

Will do tomorrow. Don’t have ze time right now.
This stuff I have to think about you know? :smile:


#18

Just finished adding links and navigation to this thread. should look a little nicer now.

Parnell

Suggested perks: movement speed, capacity.

How to play with: always stay close to the monster when you use your shotgun, aim for heads shots or the chest ONLY and don’t spam the SS wait for the right opportunity.
