I thought we should have a place to put pearls of wisdom you came across while playing Evolve. Make us all better at a game we love but are denied from.
Something I learned: When playing a trapper against the Goliath, if you are right next to him when you throw the trap, he can not run fast enough to escape the dome. (I never played against the Kraken. I don’t know if this holds true for him as well)
I posted this on Reddit before here and the tips below are comments from that thread
I noticed Stage Three monsters have a tendency to scare the bigger wild life away. You could easily use this to your advantage and send some of them towards the hunder almost like they are helping you.
Smart thing that I did one game was damage the hunters at Level 2 after they caught me. I had lost about 25% of my health. Then leveled up to 3. I got the health regen monster and got it back up while I was getting armor for my last assault. Then I got the monster that gave me a 35% damage bonus. The last fight didn’t take long.
Something I’ve noticed is Monsters (in stage 1 and 2) fighting until their amour runs out then running. A good Trapper might wait on throwing out their Arena until the monster wants to leave, which would trap him in during a time he doesn’t want to be there. So I’m thinking, as a monster, you would want to bait out the Arena as early as possible.
A way to do that might be doing a full on attack, putting everything you have into incapacitating someone. The moment the fight starts going bad for you, you run. Don’t waste time getting shot trying to catch the invisible medic on low HP. You run, Trapper throws the dome, Congrats you baited out the Arena when you still have amour. The fight’s automatically in your favour right from the start.
