I really don’t want this to be a this monster is OP nerf that kind of thread. But I am having trouble with these specific monsters. No, I don’t pub that often. I have a full group of friends I play with almost every night and we practice strategies but to be completely honest we have tried so many different strategies and hunter combos against these two monsters and still can’t find anything that sticks.
The other monsters are not nearly an issue, but here is what we are having trouble with for each monster.
Behemoth: I am finding on the forums here that the general consensus to fighting him is to keep your distance in an X formation. Okay… but here is our problem here. This means assault only really uses his ranged weapon, which can do some pretty lame damage. We find that with this strategy we just can’t eat up his armor in time before he rolls away across the map again. Also, his fissure has a very large width and can hit you while in the air and can usually clip you even if you use a couple jetpack bursts, which is annoying. These are just a couple things that we are having issues with, but there are a lot more. I find that with Behemoth a small mess up like getting hit by a fissure or a tongue grab can almost cost the hunters the game, especially if its the medic…which is usually me.
Kraken: Over the time we have played against kraken, we have come to the conclusion that kiting him around pillars is effective and saving jetpack to dodge lightning strikes exclusively. Occasionally I’m unlucky enough to get caught using Slim against a Kraken, which I understand why we would lose there. But the radius on the lightning strike, which can destroy anyone who gets hit by it, seems huge…alot like fissure. I really focus specifically against Kraken on saving my jetpack only for the lightning strikes, but even when I use all my jetpack to burst out of the way, I end up getting clipped. We’ve noticed that Behemoth and Kraken seem to be opposites in the fact that it seems better to trap Kraken indoors or in a cave and Behemoth better in the open. They seem, however, same in the fact that it is difficult to get health off of them as Kraken is hard to hit and Behemoth has loads of armor.
If anyone has tips for me and my team or hunter combinations that could counter both of these, it would be very appreciated. My team and I have been stuck in the Bronze destroyer bracket for weeks now because we are getting matched with either determining rank(which awards 1 point) or silver skilled(which awards maybe 4 points?) yet we lose several for each loss. These are the two monsters that have been giving us loads of trouble and have been killing the game for me and my team because we can’t seem to find any effective strategies. Help!
I typically play Medic or Support. I have Laz mastered and Hank mastered. But I have been steering clear of Laz for a while trying to broaden my skill set. I play Slim, Val, Caira mostly.
