I am not a monster player.
That said, I’ve been trying to play the monster a bit more frequently so I can actually play all of Evolve instead of 4/5ths of it. (Or half, depending on how you see it). I still can’t win a hunt game to save my life, but Nest is EZ mode, and Defend is almost always a close match either way.
But this is about Rescue.
I thought rescue was meant to be monster sided, but I can’t see it that way at all. It feels like the hunters always get 2 ‘freebies’ off the bat, cos every time I try to kill one survivor from the first batch, I end up taking shit tons of damage in response. The only time I’ve won vs real players so far was by playing Wraith, and I let the hunters get the first 2 survivors, TRIED killing the next 2 but failing, but then high tailing it to the last 5, killing 3 before the hunters go there, and then almost dying whilst trying to finish off the other 2. It was not an elegant win, to say the least.
Not to mention the super cheap tactic that some hunter teams use where the trapper, medic, and support trap you whilst the assault gets the survivors, and then play super defensive whilst you’re desperately trying to kill the trapper. What do you even do in that situation? Cos let me tell you, being in an arena with Griffin, Hank, and Val, trying to get a down on any of them is not easy.
So, tl:dr: How the hell do you play rescue as the monster? Which monster is the best one for it? What’s the best tactic to use?
