Marauder - Weakness & Tips
Weak To Ballista & Super Shotgun
The Marauder is a strong enemy that is highly resistant to most weapons. It is particularly weak to the Ballista and Super Shotgun, but only when attacked at the right time. Attacking it outside of the window of opportunity will only cause it to bring up its shield.Check Out the All Weapons List Here!
Resistant to Super Weapons
The Marauder is also resistant to Super Weapons such as the Chainsaw, Crucible, and even the BFG 9000! Despite these weapons still dealing damage to the Marauder, it is recommended to face the enemy with a different strategy to avoid wasting ammo and charges.
Attack when Eyes Glow Green
The window of opportunity will appear during the Marauder's attacks. Watch the enemy's eyes, and attack the enemy when the Marauder's eyes start to glow green. This will stagger it briefly, allowing you to unload some damage to it!
Get In a Few Hits & Run
The Marauder will only briefly be in a stagger state. If you are still close to it when it returns to normal, prepare to get hit by its Super Shotgun. Your best bet is to get a few good hits in, then immediately back away to avoid getting hit!
Leave This Enemy For Last
When facing a Marauder with a group of enemies, it is recommended that you run around and take care of other enemies first before facing the Marauder. The Marauder will demand your full attention so take out other threats to avoid getting blindsided by outside attacks!
Use Fodder Enemies To Resupply
Leave a few of the fodder enemies to help you resupply should you run low on armor, health, and armor!
Marauder - Attack Pattern & Features
Uses an Axe When Ranged
The Marauder will mainly use an axe to try and damage you. It can be used at mid to long range to deal damage to you.
Lunges & Strikes at Mid Range
The Marauder will lunge at you to strike when at mid range. This attack will also be when the Marauder's eyes turn green. Attacking it during this time will allow you to stagger it, giving you a window to attack.
Sends Out Projectiles at Long Range
The Marauder can also use the Axe to launch red projectiles at you from long range. Keep moving and use your dodges to avoid those projectiles.
Uses a Super Shotgun When Close
Getting too close to the Marauder will cause it to bring out its own Super Shotgun to blast you. It is a difficult attack to dodge, so it would be best to keep a safe distance away, and avoid giving it any reason to bust it out!
Summons a Spectral Hound
Occasionally, the Marauder will summon a Spectral Hound that will relentlessly chase and attack you. This is difficult to dodge since it is able to keep up with you even while you dash! Thankfully, it can be killed with a single Super Shotgun shot. Make this a top priority when it appears!
Protects Itself With a Shield
Shooting at the Marauder when its eyes are not green will cause it to bring up its shield. This shield will keep it safe from most of your damage. Avoid attacking the Marauder when its eyes are red to prevent ammo loss.
Playing As Marauder
NOTE: This section was based off the multiplayer demo at PAX East. This will be updated as soon as more information is confirmed.
Can Be Played Aggressively
As a Marauder, you will be armed with an Axe and a Super Shotgun. You can use these weapons to play aggressively by throwing the Axe at long range, or by getting up close and personal to unload damage via your shotgun! If conditions are met, you can even summon a hound to attack the Slayer!Check Out the Battle Mode Here!
Few Defensive Options
Despite having a great kit for offensive capabilities, the Marauder will not have its trusty shield during fights. It is recommended to work together with your teammate to avoid sustaining too much damage from the Slayer!
