Zoralink posted a topic in Be the ZombieI recently got the game, and have been.... slowly hating my life more and more as I try to get into the hunter in Be the Zombie mode, only to continuously get matched against people with hundreds of hours. That could be survivable, but I've had more than a couple matches with people doing this. That's pretty unacceptable to me, that it views matching as viable based on nothing more than story progress. Finding decent matches is hard enough without people intentionally messing with the matchmaker. (Or lack thereof...) For reference, the people were capped out on all of their skills as well as had multiple guns, etc, etc. I was a rank 8 hunter at the time. How is this okay? EDIT: Also stop matching me with FREAKING RUSSIANS, thanks. I don't enjoy getting killed 3 seconds after I've tendril'd away.
DoctorPurrington posted a topic in Be the ZombieBasically, the idea is to lure multiple Humans to their deaths by using a downed (reviveable) Human as live bait. By drawing the Human(s) close together with a common goal other than killing you, you open up the possibility to get multiple free kills. By using the Night Hunter's UV Spit at the moment a Human begins reviving his companion, you've essentially set up a bomb to go off the moment both Humans start to stand up. Since they are, essentially, in mid-animation recovery from the revive, there's little they can do to prevent - much less dodge - the exploding UV Spit. Once it has taken effect, you can leap down for a free, uninterrupted Pounce, followed by another via Leapfrog. Shockwave is useful, but not necessary. Both Humans should be unable to do anything in the time between getting up and your UV-assured Pounce. However, it does help, since it prevents them from moving for a short time. And, if they do manage to have enough time to begin an action, you can interrupt it. Keep in mind that you can hit "downed" players with Spits. If, for instance, you don't have a UV Spit but still want to delay a revive without entering a confrontation, you can use a Horde Spit to discourage other Humans from approaching their dead friend... unless they enjoy blowing up. That's about it! Let me know if you guys have ever used Humans as bait - it's quite fun.
