Once a monster gets to Stage 3 and has full health if they’re a good player or if it’s the AI it’s nearly impossible to beat them.
Go play against a Goliath bot and let it get to Stage 3 to see what I mean, it’s unstoppable you get no time to recuperate and if you’re Laz and escape it goes right to the relay and then right to you if you interrupt it at all.
What about some kind of weapon buff at the relay? Either you pick up…I dunno special ammo or just being at the relay buffs your weapons?
That way the monster has a great arena to take you out in but you get damage increases to make a win still possible.
Ideally it’s going to want to stop you getting to the relay but probably won’t have the time.
It takes an exceptional team of Hunters to beat a Stage 3 monster really I’ve only lost once on Defend because I suck at that, on Hunt I’ve never lost at Stage 3. Even if you have half health you can still win fairly easily. Especially if you’re relentless as Goliath.
