Monster Tactics 101:
- Eat until Stage 3 + Full Armor
- If domed before that point, proceed to Step 3, otherwise Step 4
- While domed, use boosted stamina and speed to avoid Hunters. Minimize your time in line of sight with them and use terrain to keep sight lines broken. Your “in-battle” stamina regeneration should allow you to keep in perpetual movement, preventing you from being a sitting target and make shots harder to land on you. The amount of jetpack fuel that Hunters have to utilize just to climb walls makes for elevation changes as an ideal location to sit and hide. Bide your time, and if need be, utilize attacks like Banshee Mines, Vortex, Charge and Decoy to keep Hunters from getting to the same plane as you. Do this until dome expires, then flee the area. Goto Step 1.
- Wipe the Hunter team now that the balance of power is in your favor. Let them enjoy the fact they spend 20+ minutes of their time chasing you around the map only to have gameplay mechanics keep them, from success.
I’ll be damned if a good 85% of the battles at my current level aren’t like this. And I don’t blame the Monster; it’s tactically sound, and ensures maximum chance to succeed. But man,when people find this process out, they latch onto it and repeat it ad infinitum. Predictable, but very very boring. Sometimes I go play solo, just because the monster actually engages during a dome, lol.
