Has this happened to anyone else?
I was in a game yesterday when IIRC one of the top 10 Xbone Krakens joined and got monster. The map was Distillery? Anyways we drop from the ship and there are banshee mines. This is nothing new but then suddenly there was a lightning strike coming.
I noticed in time and jetted back avoiding all damage, but my 3 teammates were not as aware/fortunate, they all took MASSIVE damage. Like, each of them 60% or higher health loss. It was a random squad of people I didn’t know and no one else was using their mics so you can guess how the game finished. Markov guy did not even bother to shield and was down. Crow was next. Then the medic, I forget who it was. I had laid down a shield drone and was trying to damage it as much as possible but eventually I popped my cloak and tried to sneak off but he followed my tracks and pounced me.
Never saw anything like it. I have dropped down in Hunt and ended up landing by a monster before but it was always due to that monster user not knowing wtf they were doing. Is this a viable strategy a lot of Kraken guys use? I understand it is the most OP monster right now, but Jeebus.
I guess he obviously had points in banshee and LS. Probably damage buff perk or cooldown. Wonder why you can kind of take control of your hunter at the end of a respawn drop but not the initial one? If we could pop a shield or cloak on the way down if we see banshee mines that would be nice. And I guess this tactic probably doesn’t work as well against a premade squad who is communicating.
