I managed to get that last achievement! Here is how it all went down…
I was farming Slim’s second star spore gun launcher over on Fushion plant. It was suggested that this would make it easier by someone on the forums and it was, so for several games of Hunt my team of bots and I waited at the generator until Behemoth came rolling in. I swapped to Trapper to get the dome, then back to Slim to spore cloud up the room from top to bottom. I only focused on the spore clouds, not healing in the least, so my team was taking the hits. Behemoth would often come for me so I stayed atop the highest platform, third level, and when he started to climb I flew to the opposite platform…and so we danced.
For this particular match we had Abe, Hyde, and Cabot. I was pretty focused on spore gunning but then became aware that both Abe and Cabot went down and were dead and that Behemoth was around half health with Hyde still up. Behemoth was coming up to get me. I thought…let me swap to Hyde. The match is almost over and maybe…just maybe…
Behemoth soon knocked Slim three levels down to the floor and rolled after him as I leapt to a favorable platform to pile on the bullets. Slim tried as he may to tank the Behemoth but finally went down. I threw a stink bomb as the red skull appeared and prepared for the boulder to come my way. But then suddenly he changed course, heading outside to the open area of the Fusion plant roof. I took off after him to continue the fight but then realized that Cabot and Abe were back and that’s why he had gone out, since they dropped in closer to him than I was. My heart sank, as I figured I’d lost my chance. It was too late to go rez. Slim and re-take him over, as his red skull finally turned white as the thought came to me. So as Behemoth took on Abe and Cabot I kept shooting in order to end the match quicker, since Cabot had his damage amp on…seemingly the only weapon he chose to use. I was far enough out of the way of the Behemoth’s attacks, and was watching as Cabot went down.
I stopped shooting then, realizing I may yet have my chance! I sat waiting for Behemoth to finish off Abe, which felt like forever. I didn’t want to shoot any more for fear Abe might add to the damage and end the match, but the clock was ticking for the reinforcement ship. At long last Abe went down, instantly white-skulled as Cabot had been. He was rocking along my way now.
My minigun was full and I emptied it quickly as the beast rolled towards me faster and faster. I headed to go back into the fusion plant but jetpacked slightly askew of the door in my excitement. I missed my chance for platform antics in there, so flew over Behemoth instead to run around on the roof in the open. I ran in reverse, shooting as I went until I ran out of that magazine as well. I knew if Behemoth got close enough he’d pounce and it’d be over so I choose not to use the flamethrower. Behemoth was down to a bar of health and lowering as I jetpacked backwards while shooting. It felt like it was taking forever…and was the dropship coming back? Then he Fissured me as my mag. emptied. I popped my shield and was knocked backwards down some stairs as the ball came rolling after me like fiery doom. This was it. My gun was still on cooldown and my body was still reeling from the knockback. Behemoth’s health bar was teasingly just a mere fraction but I had nowhere to easily escape to and no jetpack juice to fly back up or away.
But just as I thought all hope was lost and my shield fell, I found my footing and the minigun came off cooldown. I piled into Behemoth YOLO-Hyde-style, and just inches away from me and certain demise Behemoth finally fell at my feet. The red “Hunters Win!” bar blazed overhead and the Mano-A-Monster achievement unlocked.
