Insanely high damage from hunters


#1

This has happened to me twice now, both times I was playing Defend as Goliath. I went in both times to take out a generator with full armor and 60-75% health and was killed by the hunters in less than 10 or 15 seconds. I didn’t even realize what was happening until I was already dead. The second time there were turrets around the generator in addition to the hunters, but the first time I had already destroyed all the turrets.

Which Hunters did they have? In particular, which Support and Assault?


#3

Without armor turrets can chew through your health like cheese. Be wary of this combined with cabot… its pretty grotesque damage if you sit there for more than a couple seconds

It was Markov, Val, Maggie, and Hank.

Also, I should have mentioned this was solo mode both times as well.

As I said, I had full armor going in both times. First time was on the second generator. All turrents had been destroyed. I did a leap smash from a cliff to the ground next to the generator, immediately followed by a rock throw onto the generator and then melee’d the generator a couple of times. At this point I realized all of my armor had vanished and I had gone from just over half health to maybe 10%. I tried to jump away, but I just jumped in place and didn’t go anywhere. Then I charged, but I only made it about two steps before I died.

The second time was on the final generator. Only one or two turrets had been destroyed. The rest were still active. Full armor and 75% health going in. I jumped across the catwalk onto the round platform around the generator, charged through a turret, leap smashed on it, and threw a rock at it, all in quick succession. Once again, I realized all my armor was gone and I was down to half a health bar. I tried to jump away, but didn’t go anywhere again. I died before I landed.

Also might be worth noting that these are the only two times I’ve played defend, so it’s 2 for 2 so far.

I have actually seen with cabot and Hyde just thread my armour away like wet paper


#6

Maybe you landed on a bunch of mines? Idk if that could have done it all but I’m pretty sure it would wipe your armor.


#7

Markov’s mines,Hanks Orbital Barrage?

Those 2 things alone can leave a Stage 3 full armor/health monster a cripple.
