Doom Hunter - Weakness & Tips
Destroy Its Floatilla Sled
Doom Hunter's main source of defense and attack is from the sled he is riding. This can be destroyed to remove its rocket barrage and also its shield capabilities. If its Sled is not destroyed, the shield will recharge.
Blood Punch Deals High Damage VS Sled
A blood punch will severely damage the sled making it a good tactic to start a fight with a punch. Doom Hunters are aggressive when they're on the sled however so you might not be able to farm a blood punch unless you have one already.
Changes Behavior When Sled Is Down
The Doom Hunter will be less aggressive after their Floatilla Sled is destroyed, maintaining distance and resorting to hit & run attacks instead of its head-on assault. Super Shotgun's Meat Hook will let you latch on to it as it runs off.
Break Shield With Plasma Rifle
Doom Hunter is equipped with an energy shield if its Floatilla Sled is not broken. Use Plasma Rifle to break off its shield to do damage to its body. The shield will recharge after a while if sled is still around.
