Some people get frustrated on how Lazarus comes around and revives his allies behind your back. You don’t need to camp the body if you can knock the guys away for a few seconds.
If you want to stop those stealth-revives, eat the body or stick around it for 45 seconds. Eating it produces the “Decayed” state, and it takes 45 seconds for a hunter’s body to decay (Unless this is changed post-beta).
Stage 1 makes a small monster. Sneaking and hiding in bushes and behind rocks can throw hunters off, allowing you to let them pass by and sneak the opposite direction.
Hunters are pretty smart. Expect some of them to take Elite buffs while you are stage 1 or 2 just so it can decay before you hit Stage 3. Keep an eye out for the strong buffs (Tyrant and Megamouth) while traversing around the map. If it’s dead, sniff around then pick it up. Don’t let a good buff go to waste! (Same for us, hunters).
Stage 3 isn’t the only place to fight. If you are at full or 2/3 armor, try and scrape up a few hunters and deal permanent damage to them. If you get domed in, turn and fight until you are low armor. When this happens, keep them away with knockbacks and keep running around rocks and cliffs until the dome is down.
Smart hunters split in pairs. If you encounter them, take out the medic or trapper first. If they cloak, use AoE. If you don’t want to sustiain damage, run through them. Why? The other two are going to pinsir you in from behind.
Your loathed hunter.
