Hunters flying up in the air


#1

How do you deal with hunters that fly up in the air?

it’s wraiths ultimate weakness I try to warp blast or abduct but it most likely misses unless I get lucky.


#2

Wraith has pretty good air control. He can warp up into the air and use a heavy attack to force someone to the ground. Other options include the aforementioned warpblast and abduct.


#3

It’s true but this was before wraiths air melee changed now that it has its completely broken.


#4

Haven’t played wraith much since they changed that myself. I think you could still pull it off effectively, even if it is harder. But, I dunno.


#5

Trust me the air melee is absolutely broken you may be able to hit a hunter in midair but that’s like 0.1% of time

poor wraith why does she suffer so much ;_;


#6

Have you tried to use warp blasts early detonation by pressing its button again?
I find doing that helps alot.


#7

Yea I know that move.

I warp blast up in the air where the hunter it does work at times and other times it doesn’t.

You gotta be really lucky


#8

Indeed.
As a silver lineing, by the time those hunters land, they tend to be out of jet pack which means they become much easier to focus down without their ability to dodge.


#9

i missed the old wrap range, i mean the warp teleport, not the blast. it was sometimes usefull to escale if you have no amor and low health after doom match


#10

You could also get a point into abduct to just drag them down again, the cooldown is very short.


#11

Abduct is the ultimate counter to it. If I use a SN, I’ll sometimes hold the AB, so when they dodge up, I’ll AB them back and use a WB. You may need to warp backwards to be able to get the angle you need, and you’ll have to be quick on the trigger. If there’s a Sunny, and you’ve done this often, they may be prepared to dodge the AB, in which case I would mix it up by attacking the Sunny instead.


#12

Yeah this, very easy counter to pull off whenever I watch it happen because wraiths melee knock back is like being hit by a wholly mammoth.
