Hunter Buffs AR & DDR2 (IBaR)

Dec 16, 2017
Hunter Buffs AR & DDR2 (IBaR)
  • Hunter Buffs (IBaR V1.2.0)
    Assassin & Damage dealer Roles Page 2

    NOTE: Some of the Hunter Buffs for the Assassin Role also make up the entirety of the Damage Dealer Role. Thus that is why those 2 roles have been made into 2 pages, given the 11 buffs, split into 7 and 4 in each page respectively.

    8. Devastating pounce (Also in Damage Dealer Role)

    Description:
    Pouncing a survivor from more than 150 feet will instantly incapacitate them and leave them with intense pain. Survivors under intense pain will lose 2% of their current health per second until medication is used.

    Positives
    + Any pounce from more than 1 hotel height away will instantly incapacitate any survivor regardless of health, survivors instantly incapacitated are inflicted with intense pain causing them to lose a small percentage of current health per second.
    + A Very useful buff to have when your focusing on killing survivors very quickly.


    Negatives
    - The buff effect is very hard to achieve on most maps.
    - If the survivors are already incapacitated the buff effect won't do anything if the pounce is succeeded with the right requirements.


    Explanation:
    The Devastating pounce Buff will let your pounce from more than 1 hotel height away (150+ feet) will instantly incapacitate any survivor regardless of their current health, survivors instantly incapacitated this way are left with intense pain that causes them to lose a small percentage of current health per second until medication is used. A useful buff if you want to focus on killing survivors very quickly. Unfortunately getting the buff effect is much harder than you think and there are only a few maps where the height going up to 150+ feet is enough to let the buff effect be activated. If the survivor is already incapacitated when the buff effect is succeeded again on them, this buff effect will do nothing.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    On successful pounce from over 150 feet, instantly incapacitate pinned survivor. Survivors under intense pain will lose 2% current health per second until medication is used.

    9. Binded (Also in Damage Dealer and Slower Roles) <top>

    Description:
    Pouncing an incapacitated survivor will leave them unable to crawl for 1 - 20 seconds depending on pounce travel distance
    <2000 unit pounce distance gets max time>


    Positives
    + Pouncing any incapacitated survivor will bind them to the floor, preventing movement from a small window to a large amount of time based on pounce travel distance
    + A useful buff for the Hunter if he is focusing more in slowing down survivors.


    Negatives
    - A less useful buff for the Hunter if he is focusing more on quickly killing or quickly damaging survivors instead.

    Explanation:
    The Binded Buff lets the Hunters pounce on an incapacitated survivor leave them unable to crawl by binding them to the floor, this prevents movement from a small window to a large amount of time based on the pounce travel distance. A useful buff to have around for the Hunter if he is focusing more on slowing down survivors. It is however a less useful buff for the Hunter when he is focusing more on quickly killing or damaging survivors quickly.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    On successful pounce, make pinned survivor unable to crawl for 1 - 20 seconds depending on pounce travel distance.
    <2000 unit pounce distance gets max time>


    10. Face Bite (Also in Damage Dealer Role) <top>

    Description:
    Each 13th hit while pouncing will deal triple damage

    Positives
    + The 13th hit dealt while pouncing survivors will deal triple the normal damage.
    + A useful buff to have if your focusing on killing or damaging survivors quickly.


    Negatives

    - Sometimes, you may end up dying before doing more than 10 hits while pouncing if survivors are nearby.

    Explanation:
    Do I bite your face? NO! that's not what a hunter usually does... The Face Bite Buff will let the 13th hit while pouncing survivors deal triple damage than normal. It's a useful buff to have on if your focusing on killing or damaging survivors quickly. Sometimes though, if any survivors are nearby while your pouncing someone, you can possibly die before doing more than 10 hits.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    On each 13th hit while pouncing, deal 3x damage.

    11. Evolve (Also in Damage Dealer Role) <top>

    Description:
    Your maximum health increases by 20HP each time you pounce a survivor. This bonus is permanent for the rest of the round.

    Positives
    + Small maximum HP increase every time you pounce a survivor, permanent bonus for the rest of the round.
    + A useful buff if you want to give yourself more survivability as a Hunter using the Assassin role or to make your Damage dealer role more effective.


    Negatives
    - Nothing.

    Explanation:
    You can't really evolve as a hunter into a more advanced infected form. However the Evolve Buff does let the hunter gain a small increase in maximum HP every time he pounces a survivor, a permanent bonus for the rest of the round. Considered to be a useful buff if you want to give yourself more survivability as a Hunter using the Assassin role or to make your Damage dealer role more effective.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    On every successful pounce, +20HP increased maximum HP. Bonus is permanent for the rest of the round.
