Turrets can be a dissuasive measure. A monster isn’t going to want to chase anyone through a bunch of turrets. As long as people know how to play with this comp and know how to play Laz, this comp doesn’t really need defense. The number one mistake I see pubs making with this comp is not knowing how to cloak. People seem to think it’s a good idea to cloak after the monster is attacking you. In general, it should go like this: monster looks like he’s going to focus Laz? Cloak. Support, get turrets up for a safe area and co-ordinate with Laz to chain cloak. Laz’s cloak runs out, Bucket cloaks. Get good positioning and good turret placement. A good Bucket/Laz will get good positioning so that Laz’ cloak is ready again by the time the monster can engage Laz. Rinse, repeat.I can’t count the number of times I’ve played as Laz and my cloak is running out and I ask Bucket for his cloak and he doesn’t use it. I die. He uses it for himself but ends up dying anyway. Buckets: it’s okay if you die. It’s not okay if Laz dies. Save Laz first. Make sure your turrets are always up and be ready to cloak Laz.
But, yea, good luck accomplishing this in pubs. Usually when I play Laz in pubs, trapper or support dies, Assault thinks it’s a good idea to facetank the monster and lose all his health and dies in the same place. Can’t really get anyone up without killing myself. Sometimes I go for it, sometimes I don’t. By this point it’s obvious we’re going to lose because no one knows how to play lol.
