Im not stating wraith is “omg OP wtf”, I am here to simply talk about some of the little known “hidden abilities” of decoy that make it unnecessarily powerful. a lot of people here believe wraith is too p owerfull, and out of the nearly 30 Wraith hunts I have played, me and my team have only beat about 5… A few of which had no idea what they were doing… you can take these following facts and form your own opinions about them and Decoy.
- When tagged with a yellow outline (Val, Cabot, etc), the decoy with take the outline and not the Monster. When the decoy ends, the monster is not marked. Wraith can essentially end it with Decoy.
-decoy can trigger mines for the monster
-decoy can trigger Maggie tethers for the monster ( i dont play trapper, dont know what they are called.)
- when marked by motion sensor, UAV, cargo ships, etc (leaving a marker above head) its transfers to decoy instead, just like the tagging)
-when activating supernova, then decoy, decoy continues the supernova (this may not be true, but Im pretty sure I have had this happen to me Many times)
I will edit and add more if I remember more.
BONUS NON DECOY TRICK: a dashing/teleporting wraith can dash through mines, and trigger them without taking damage.
