It seems an almost unbeatable tactic for Support to just go off on their own and take out eggs, Bucket being the most efficient with those Sentry Guns.
How do you actually win when people are doing this?
Ideally, kill Support but if they’re smart they’ll cloak and be fine before you reach them and with Bucket you’re gonna have to get those Sentry Guns destroying the nearby egg.
All the while the rest of the team is demolishing other eggs.
I fear the day every team does this, Nest will be nearly impossible as a single minion is no threat to the other 3 Hunters especially if they have Markov.
And this is assuming Lazarus isn’t on the team to also cloak and escape until the others come back.
I feel like it would help a lot if you could control the minions with the buttons used for Hot Swap.
So tell it to go armour up, find a perk, be sneaky or attack.
Alon with that they shouldn’t have a health bar floating around before they’re even in sight making it obvious they are the minion.
Or if you could hatch 2 minions but the timer would count down to the Hunters winning instead. Don’t ask me how that makes sense but the Hunters giving up when there’s only one minion left with 5% of it’s health left doesn’t make sense either, or how they just let the main monster roam free afterwards.
I think that’d be a big enough risk to justify 2 minions, provided you could only have 2 once in the whole match. They’d need to have commands for that to be useful else the first minion would be half dead as you hatch the second.
