Meet Hunt: SHOW­DOWN’S fear­some big-game duo

Games TM - - THE GAMES IN FOCUS -

Hunt: Show­down’s matches cen­tre around your en­counter with the boss. These mas­sive mon­sters are tough to kill and have unique strengths and weak­nesses, but of­fer huge re­wards to any Hunter who can de­feat them and es­cape with the prize. Here’s our in­tro­duc­tion to the two bosses Show­down cur­rently lets you fight.

Boss 1: THE BUTCHER

de­scrip­tion: Imag­ine if Ja­son Voorhees tried to start a new se­rial-killer fash­ion trend by wear­ing the sev­ered head of a pig. Strengths: Ex­tremely durable, im­mune to fire. Weak­nesses: Shot­guns and ex­plo­sives. no­table abil­i­ties: Can kill most hunters with just two hits.

Strat­egy: The Butcher re­quires close-quar­ters com­bat to do any real dam­age, but can squash Hunters into jelly in a cou­ple of swipes. The best so­lu­tion is for one Hunter to kite him with a lon­grange weapon like a ri­fle, while the other Hunter gets be­hind him with a shot­gun. Re­peat un­til the Butcher be­comes the butchered.

Boss 2: THE SPI­DER

de­scrip­tion: See above. Strengths: Fast, ag­ile, and good at hid­ing. Weak­nesses: Vul­ner­a­ble to fire and most guns. no­table abil­i­ties: Can climb walls, spits poi­son.

Strat­egy: The Spi­der can eas­ily bam­boo­zle Hunters with its quick move­ments and abil­ity to walk on all sur­faces. It par­tic­u­larly likes to rush out from dark cor­ners to spit a glob of burn­ing poi­son at you. De­feat­ing the spi­der comes mainly down to track­ing its move­ments and not let­ting it get be­hind you.
