Bounty Hunt tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Armored is vulnerable to fire, but not much else. It can take a lot of damage from standard weapons.
  • Take out Hives from far away. Their swarms will otherwise poison you, dealing hefty damage and disorienting you.
  • Poison damage halts your Health regeneration until you are no longer poisoned.
  • The Antidote Shot makes you immune to poison for a very long time; take one at the beginning of the match and no longer worry about poison from hives and such.

  • Your health will be restored by 50 HP when your team starts banishing. You cannot exceed your maximum health of 150 HP this way.
  • You'll be slowed down while moving through water. Plan your route carefully and don't get caught in this disadvantageous position.
  • When approaching a compound, watch out for caged animals like dogs or chickens. If they spot you, they'll create a racket.

  • If you are killed while absorbing energy, you will keep the energy you have gained to that point.

  • In order to survive a mission, you must absorb all remaining energy from the Wellspring
