There hasve been two instances were a tyrant grabbed hold of one of my team-mates and refused to let go. One was a few months back (March or April I think) where our Assault got grabbed and our entire team pumbled the creature but the tyrant ate the once-full-health-no-strike assault anyway. The second was just yesterday when our Trapper get bitten. Our entire team (Laz, Sunny, Lennox or Torvald) beat the tyrant until it actually died. Once it died it let go of our now dead trapper. Laz couldn’t revive because he was in the water. Both of these happened in the captured-goliath map. (can’t remember the name. :P) Both had Laz on the team.
EDIT: It wasn’t hte same tyrant, btw. The first one in March/April was near the spawn point. The one yesterday was beside the junkyard.
Usually, I can just shoot the tyrant once or twice with weak bullets and it will let go. So why is it that in these two occurances, the tyrant wouldn’t let go? I’m assuming that it is a bug because we did indeed nearly kill the tyrant in March/April before assault (Hyde, I think?) was swallowed and we did kill the tyrant yesterday at the same time Jack died.
