I’ve noticed a lot of monsters like to hug the perimeter of the map, and I think if the players have a general idea of the direction the monster headed they could split into teams of two and head to opposite sides of the perimeter and perform a pincer movement to find it more quickly. I’m wondering what everybody thinks about the general strategy, as well as which class or character pairings would work best?
I was thinking Assault/Medic and Trapper/Support, because these pairings seem to provide the most balanced damage output (although it would depend on which characters were being used).
Not sure about what character combinations would work best for this, but thinking Markov/Caira and Griffin/Bucket. Markov can lay down mines along one side of the perimeter while Bucket and Griffin set sentries and sensors along the other side. If the monster is headed towards Bucket/Griffin then Caira’s speed boost would allow her and Markov to reach them quickly. If the monster is headed towards Markov/Caira as long as she’s healing Markov and he’s drawing the aggro they should be able to take it’s health down considerably while Bucket/Griffin make their way over.
Thoughts? Flaws in the plan? Counter-strategies?
