I’m sorry I forget the name of the Twitch stream I was watching, but he was at that point last night the top streamer, had thousands of viewers, said he’s played almost 200 hours. Someone it seemed from England is all I can say, was playing with a friend from England and I think some other guy named Jim??
Anyways, he was playing Cabot, monster was Wraith, and I noticed that he was one shot killing a lot of random creatures with the rail gun. Pretty much any creature he came across, he killed it (minus a couple of the really big creatures, unless they were albino). Someone asked in chat why he was doing this thankfully, because I was wondering myself.
His strategy was he was killing all the creatures because they would decay and the monster would have very little fresh meat to max feed on. And I have to admit, it appeared to work. The Wraith was able to get to stage 2, and he was a very non-aggressive Wraith and hid a lot, and at some point the hunters just camped the generator. The Wraith had plenty of time to get to Stage 3, but never did and eventually ran out of time and had to attack the generator. I’m assuming this is because it just couldn’t find enough creatures alive or dead to get up to the next stage.
Definitely a strategy I had not seen before and seems like something that would be particularly useful against fast “chase” monsters like the Wraith.
