Today I came to a realization; the monsters don’t need good to survive.
I came to this realization while playing Wendigo Goliath on Medlab. Of course my sneak game was on point, as usual, and I was tiptoeing circles around the hunters. I found an elite tyrant and I proceeded to devour his soul.
While eating the tyrant, I pondered how a Stage 1 Goliath could eat this creature that’s about it’s same size, and how it could still eat more wildlife after it. Doesn’t make sense really, does it?
Also, have you noticed that even after you are at full energy, the monster can still keep eating and eating and eating? You could eat everything on the map at S1 if you wanted.
Another thing I noticed that helped me come to this realization was the fact that Goliath didn’t have a… For lack of a better term, asshole. Neither does Wraith or Kraken, and I’m assuming Behemoth won’t either. So where does the food go when it’s… Done?
Well, here’s my theory; the monsters are giant furnaces. Everything they eat instantly becomes energy that they use to evolve and gain armor! As soon as food enters the stomach (or whatever special organ they have) it’s processed, and turned every last bit is converted into pure energy for the monster! I’m assuming this is why they don’t need to drink either… They just feed to gain energy to get bigger. They don’t need their food to live, just to get more powerful.
Of course, this is just a theory.
