I thought it’d be good to stick all the Jackal tips are tricks in one place. Sure, there are some Jack discussions around, like the main one (with currently 1767 replies!), but this thread intends on focusing purely on his uses, tips and tricks, including help for mastering him.

Use your Repulsor beam in bursts - when it is red it is not doing anything. Either the Monster is not moving or is moving in a different direction.
Use the satellite when you throw the mobile arena, to easily check if the monster is in or out, and where in the dome he is.
Only use the satellite (outside the dome) when you’ve lost the monster.
If you run the Reload Perk, you can use the Satellite right away in the dome and it’ll be recharged by the time the dome goes down to most likely hit Monster health.
For 1 star Dual Pistol mastery - damage doesn’t have to be done to the monster. Find some big wildlife (Nomad/Tyrant/Megamouth), and shoot the crap out of them.
For 2 star Repulsor mastery - Get into a game of Defend and use it on minions as they approach relays, or if they try to go for team-mates that get too close to them.
For 3 star Repulsor mastery - Go into Arena, pick Wraith as your opponent and grab the recharge speed perk. Use Repulsion Field in small bursts whenever it looks like she’s going for a team-mate. To make life slightly easier aim roughly for your team-mate.
For 3 star Survey Satellite - take movement speed in a match of hunt. Make monster Goliath and medic Val. Just run behind him and spam the satellite. If he starts getting difficult to follow, throw the dome. Rinse and repeat. Alterantively : setup a hunt, and take movement speed. Dome the monster, throw the satellite, and after the monster gets tagged, take down the dome so it doesn’t take health damage. Behemoth works well for it’s ability to tank damage, and the fact that it is slow! It’s worth setting the wildlife to low, to prevent the monster from getting enough feed from evolving!
