Which abilities interrupt feeding?


#1

Just wondering because sometimes a hunter will go down, and the monster will still be able to devour the corpse while abilities are hitting it. I was wondering if there are certain abilities that prevent and some that do not?


#2

Everything except pistol fire (When you are downed) and Toxic Grenades. If you have a slow reload or slow firing (Val Sniper) you can eat bars between reloads/shots, especially if they have the feed perk.


#3

Hmm, hopefully they allow toxic grenades to prevent eating in a patch, because as of now they arn’t serving as a good enough denial of area ability.


#4

He will take more damage from the grenade than eating. It’s also free damage. On top of that, if you are just denying a monster food the Toxic grenade isn’t great as you are usually chasing the monster and it will slow you down. Pull out the minigun.


#5

I mean more along the lines of if they eat the body, laz cannot rez. So more along the lines of when Laz is the medic.


#6

Ah, at that point burn the trucker :stuck_out_tongue: With Laz on the team the monster REALLY pays to try and deny a rez.


#7

Amen, how about fire?

If hyde/caira light the monster on fire, do the fire “ticks” that last after the direct damage prevent feeding?


#8

Fire ticks do not. Just the initial hit. Same with poison bullets.


#9

This is good to know


#10

I believe vals tranq gun doesn’t interrupt eating either.
If its suppose to then the game I last played in was bugged because she shot me twice while I was eating and it didn’t stop me.

I realize this doesn’t actually damage you. I just wanted to bring it up for clarification.


#11

So what the consensus appears to be that if it doesn’t do direct damage, it doesn’t interrupt.


#12

Yes you are correct. The only direct damage that doesn’t affect the Monster while feeding is pistol damage.


#13

And Toxic Grenade. Toxic Grenade prevents you from eating, but if you are already eating it doesn’t kick you off.
