What perks do you use? I use [ Brawler | Scale Armor | Evolved Recovery ]. Been thinking of using [ Brawler | Mutated Recovery | Deadly Brawler ] or [ Heavy Armor | Mutated Recovery | DR ].
For my build I go
Stage 1: 1 Lava, 1 Tongue, 1 Fissure, 1 Rockwall
Stage 2: 1 Lava, 2 Tongue, 3 Fissure, 1 Rockwall
Stage 3: 3 Lava, 2 Tongue, 3 Fissure, 1 Rockwall
Id put more points in TG but its completely rng here. Sometimes it even fails to hit a fleeing wildlife let alone a jetpacking hunter.
It's hard to explain how I play but I usually start with Rock Wall to obscure vision or to screw hunters trying to find a comfy spot. I wait for a couple of moments then follow up with a Fissure > Lava Bomb > Tongue Grab if TG doesn't bug out and actually pulls something I go for a roll > heavy. After that Ill go ham on whoever got grabbed. I usually just spam left clicks until a heavy knocks them back. If that happens TG > Fissure > Lava Bomb > Roll > Heavy. Also if some cheeky beam dudes try to save them a rockwall to the back wont hurt.
