Evolve - Monsters Guide
Evolve has been a surprise hit this year. With its unique multiplayer game play, it has combined unique elements of horror, shooters, and teamwork to create a really fun experience. In each match, four players will play as hunters, who need to team together to take down a single player who is playing as a monster. Right now, there are three different monsters that players can choose from. Need some help deciding which one to play? Don't worry, we've got you covered.
This is the first monster that is unlocked. Goliath has a lot of armor, and he is a powerhouse when it comes to dealing melee damage. This monster is considered to be well-balanced, not especially sacrificing damage or armor.
Goliath's special movement is Jump, which allows the player to travel a long distance without leaving tracks. This uses all stamina. Goliath also has a melee attack as well as four special attacks.
Charge attack is a close range attack where Goliath rushes the enemies to damage them and knock them away. It's great for damage and to use to escape a sticky situation!
Fire breath is a special attack that can damage multiple targets at close to mid range. Using it can reveal hidden hunters.
Leap attack will bring Goliath down from the sky, doing a large amount of damage on a big area. It's best to use when the hunters are grouped together for a surprise attack.
Rock throw is another attack that can do damage to multiple targets. It is mid to long range and will do heavy damage on a direct hit while doing minor splash damage to targets around the area of contact as well.
Kraken is unlocked by getting 1 star in all of Goliath's abilities. Kraken is a long-range monster with a fair amount of armor.
The Kraken's special movement is Glide, which will launch the monster into the air and glide them in the direction they are facing. This uses up all stamina. When gliding, the Kraken dodges attacks and can attack from the air. However, the Kraken does leave tracks while gliding. The Kraken also has a melee/ranged attack as well as four special moves.
Aftershock is an area attack that does damage to everyone around the Kraken. This attack requires a build-up and it is the only close-range special attack the Kraken has.
Banshee mines will launch electric balls that seek out hunters to explode and do damage.
Lightning strike is an attack that calls down lightning to do a lot of heavy damage to a targeted area. When using this attack, you won't be able to move, so be wary. You can use this while gliding.
Vortex wave is a mid range attack that will do some damage and also knock hunters back. It's good if you need to try to make a getaway.
You can unlock the Wraith after getting 1 star in the Kraken's abilities. The Wraith is a unique monster with a focus on deception and stealth.
The Wraith's movement ability is Warp, and this allows the monster to warp from place to place instantly. This can make it very hard to find the monster, especially when paired with Decoy. The Wraith has four special abilities.
Abduction is a skill that will let the Wraith warp to a hunter, grab them, and pull them back to where the attack started.
Decoy will allow you to send out a doppelganger to trick the enemy.
Supernova will let the Wraith create an area that gives them an attack and armor boost. Trapping enemies inside is ideal for doing the most damage.
Warp blast is an attack that allows the Wraith to warp up to the enemy and fire a blast at them for lots of damage. You'll need to charge this one up.
