Part 2 of learning you scrubs on how to improve your monster. This deals with which Hunter to focus down and how to do it.
Each monster has different strenghts and weaknesses. They can excel against certain teams, and lost against others. Here is a basic rundown of who you should be going for when in a fight.
If Sunny or Hank is support, get them down quickly. Their shields will be a thorn in your side the whole fight, and downing them will make it a lot easier. When going for support, they will cloak to try to prevent damage. If you are playing wraith or kraken, you won’t have a consistent way to reveal them, so switch targets to medic while they run from you. Go right back to them as soon as the cloak fades.
If Lazaras is on the team, focus trapper hard if you want to run. Don’t worry about the res if you are trying to run and stage up. If they have Cabot or bucket on the team, go hard for laz and switch targets back to trapper when he cloaks, unless you have him revealed with fire damage or acid.
Focus the trapper if Crow is on the team. The charged slow shot is brutal and will leave you as a big target if you run out of traversal. His long rifle can pierce armor, so get him down to preserve health.
Assaults should be ignored for the most part. Hit them with a big ability, such as rock throw or lightning strike, to knock them away from you and do damage. Most won’t pop their shields immediately, so if you can, hit him a few times to lower their hp. When the shield drops, go in hard on them. They do all the damage so you’ll stay alive longer with them down. If Lennox or blitz Markov, hit them every few seconds to prevent the ramping damage. Blitz Markov needs to be stumbled to break his chain, so try to time a heavy attack on him.
In general, go for Trapper first if you don’t want to fight. Support if you do. Medic if you find it hard to get a down, and assault when you’re taking too much damage.
Save cooldowns for burst damage and combos. AOE abilities and DOT damage make it hard for a medic to heal effectively. Save traversal a to doge mortars or get to a fleeing Hunter. And remember to sneak pounce lone hunters and gap close in combat if you run out of traversals. Post other tips here. Good luck monsters.
