Before I start I just want to let you know that I realize that the topic this question revolves around is probably to make gameplay better and all that because if it was completely realistic, Evolve wouldn’t be fun. But anyway, onto the question -
I just want to know how the Evolve characters manage to stay alive for so long while fighting the Monster.
Okay. That probably sounds like a stupid question. You’re thinking, “Because they have medics!” Nono, I want to know how when a Goliath slams it’s fists down on a Hunter or smashes a rock into them, they aren’t knocked out IMMEDIATELY. For any other human being a rock to the face of that size would probably break almost every bone in your body, plus the smashing into walls/the ground. Not to mention how resilient they seem when fighting a Wraith. Seriously! She has massive blades and the Hunters are like a brick wall when they’re getting hit by them. Their arms should be flying off and whatnot.
When the medic dies they’re obviously a lot weaker, but they’re still much stronger than say, survivors that you pick up in Rescue. Or colonists that fight with you in Evac.
We know that characters bleed a lot as well. There’s a line that Hyde says when he’s low on health. Basically, he says that he can see his own guts coming out. Gross, but, ok. Markov will also say “Blood? MY blood? Where is medic!?” once his shield goes down (this does actually make sense) and I’ve heard Jack say “I’m covered in my own blood!” So we know that they do in fact bleed a lot. It just doesn’t seem to effect them as much as it should because of the medics, but I digress.
For characters like Lennox and Parnell I can understand because they’re under huge bulks of armored suits. The Assaults shield = makes sense. Emet and Bucket it also makes sense because, well. They’re robots. But for characters like Sunny, Jack, Caira, Cabot, Val, Abe, etc…
Does anyone have anything telling me how the Hunter’s… well, work. Do they have armor that we can’t see? Something they inject into themselves that makes them stronger before a fight?
