After playing him for about 7-8 match, I think I’ve found my new favourite assault!
Here are a few tips:
His corrosive grenade and poison dart both last 10 seconds. That is a loooong time where you can shoot your main weapon. This took me some getting used to, but you really don’t need to swap back to the grenade/dart gun as often as you first think.
With his main gun, cycle between his fire modes. Start with M1 to get that DoT going, then fire two shots of M2. Then a M1 again, then 2 M2’s. After that it’s probably time to refresh the grenade/dart DoT.
And that’s basically all there is to it. Keep track of your DoTs from your grenade/dart and cycle between your M1 and M2 for it’s maximum DoT/direct damage output.
Renegabe has in my opinion the highest ‘chase’ damage (where you chip at the monsters health as he escapes from the dome) if you can keep your dots on him as long as possible, you can easily get 1-1,5 healthbar worth of damage.
If he is still close, hit him with a grenade. Once he is far away, hit him with a dart. Then keep peppering him with your main gun M1. And finally, if he is just about to escape your view, give him one last dart. This should also give you ‘vision’ of him for 10 seconds, as the damage numbers will keep popping up.
Oh and, less defence matrix? Pheh. He reduces the monster’s damage output by 5% in total. A 10% weaker matrix easily makes up for that in terms of personal survival.
