From your darkest nightmares to the surface of Shear, the Gorgon arrives on November 3rd:
Traversal: Web Slinging - Gorgon fires a web and slings herself across the map. This ability can be used to attach yourself to a wall to hide from danger or prepare for a sneak attack. The controls on this feel very nice and tight and once you get the hang of it is becomes a great way to travel. I feel that her stamina recharge is a bit lower than other monsters, but this could have been due to numerous reasons while playing. You can chain the traversal several times in a row horizontal and/or vertical. Sky Gorgon is funny to see.
Ability One: Acid Spit - Deals damage to Hunters and leaves a pool of toxic acid that damages anything that stands in it. This can coat walls, floors and ceilings. The damage over time doesn’t seem like it is affected by the ‘density’ of the acid pools.
Ability Two: Web Snare - Slows down Hunters and deals damage over time. The Hunter’s who are affected lose 50% of their jetpack thrust. Wildlife get snared and slower.
Ability Three: Mimic - Gorgon sends out a bright green, player controlled version of itself that can be detonated to deal massive damage to hunters. The Mimic has a health bar that depletes over time and when fired at. If the Health Bar runs out before manual detonation it does not explode. Shooting the Gorgon while its channeling this ability will cause the Mimic to dissipate and not explode.
Ability Four: Spider Trap - Gorgon fires a spider-like creature from her abdomen that will burrows into the ground for a couple seconds. Once burrowed it will jump out when a hunter (Wildlife & Daisy do not trigger this ability) comes with about 5-10 meters and chase them. The Spider can be destroyed and has a decent health pool. If caught it will swallow the Hunter and slowly do damage over time while digesting them. The Spider then randomly runs around but will stay within 40 meters of the original burrow location. The Hunter can be freed by killing the spider or after a set amount of time. The spider, while burrowed, can be killed, and pinged. (Though it isn’t visible unless you use Gobi who can see it underground)
