Mancubus - Weakness & Tips
Weak to Rockets & Super Shotgun
The Mancubus is a large hulking demon that is relatively easy to hit thanks to its size. It is weak to Rockets and the Super Shotgun, giving you a few combat options when you encounter one during a fight!Check Out the All Weapons List Here!
Cannons Are a Weak Point
The Mancubus generally uses cannons on its arms as its main source of damage. However, shooting these cannons will destroy them, causing the enemy to resort to less effective attacks!
Chest Glory Kills Make it Explode
Performing a chest Glory Kill on the Mancubus will cause it to explode, dealing AoE damage to nearby enemies. Performing this in a crowded area is a great way for you to control crowds of enemies!
Variant: Cyber Mancubus
Aside from the Mancubus, a Cyber Mancubus variant also exists. Instead of flamethrowers, it will spit out a green goo that deals high damage, or walk on its puddles. It will also be covered in a dampening armor which you will need to chip away at to deal substantial damage.
Use Blood Punch to Destroy Armor
Generally, blasting away at the Cyber Mancubus' armor with rockets and other powerful blasts can destroy the Cyber Mancubus' shields. However, you can destroy the armor with a single Blood Punch!
Mancubus - Attack Pattern & Features
Uses Fireballs for Ranged Attacks
The Mancubus will usually use the cannons on its arms to deal damage. The cannons can spew out fireballs when at range. These can be easily dodged by constantly being on the move, and timing your dashes.
Cyber Mancubus Uses Green Goo Instead
Instead of fireballs, the Cyber Mancubus will rely on Green Goo to damage the Slayer. The Green projectiles will also create puddles on the floor which deal damage over time to Slayers that walk on it.
Can Use a Flamethrower For Close Range
Occasionally, the Mancubus will also utilize its flamethrowers and try to torch Slayers close by. This can easily be avoided by dodging to the side or dashing backwards.
Creates a Flame Puddle If Slayer is Close
If the Slayer gets too close to the Mancubus, it will fire its cannons on its immediate area, creating a puddle of fire around it. This will damage Slayers that step on it, so it would be best to keep your distance instead.
Playing as Mancubus
NOTE: This section of the article was based off the demo at PAX. This will be updated as soon as more information is confirmed.
Useful As a Tank
The Mancubus boasts over 3000 health, making it a useful tank when facing the Slayer. However, it would be wise to avoid going for a full frontal assault. Try to flank the Slayer to prevent losing as much health as you can!Check Out the Battle Mode Here!
Use Smokescreen As Cover
If the going gets tough, you can lay down a smoke screen that breaks the Slayer's line of sight! You can use this as cover to break away and heal up, push a low-health enemy, or even as a decoy to lure a Slayer into a potential trap!
Use Cannons to Deal AoE Damage
Your cannons will allow you to fire projectiles at long ranges. These projectiles will explode upon contact, dealing a small damage around its area. Despite not hitting very hard, this can be used to slowly chip away at a Slayer's health.
