Hunter Help - Metroid Prime: Hunters
24 Aug 2007, ID#4584 Hunter Help
Everybody who plays Metroid Prime Hunters knows there are 7 main hunters in the game. Each of them have their own specific weaknesses powers alt forms ect. But not many people know all this and how to use these people properly. I'm using this to show you how to do all that. So here we go.
Samus Aran: Her alt form is the only alt form with 2 moves. Boost and bombs. By standing ont he bombs it enables her to jump in the air. Samuses morph ball can go into small crevices lvls (in the game or in multiplayer/wi-fi mode) WEAKNESS: She has no attack specificly meant for her like the others.
Kanden: My personal favorite hunter. His special attack is Volt Driver which when charged can a) Track the opponent b) If the opponent is evennntuall hit will distort the opponents vision for a while and c) will show opponents general area. His alt form is the dreaded Stinglarva which can detatch from the end of it's tail tracking slug bombs. WEAKNESS: He is vulnerable to headshot and his weapon moves very slowly giving target time to move away.
Spire: His Alt form is the Dialanche which can disturb a small area of ground around it to attack. It can also climb up most walls efficiently. His attack is the Mag-Maul it rolls on the ground and bounces off walls. It explodes on contact. Highly liked on Alinos Gateway because of his ability to walk through lava without being harmed. There many glitches that come with this hunter. WEAKNESS: Mag-Maul will explode on anything. Including yourself making it highly suicidal.
Trace: Known as the number one used hunter. His vicious alt form is the Triskellion which resembles a spider that has only 3 legs. Triskellion will turn invisible if it stands still for a few seconds. Then once the prey comes near you can pounce on the enemy at a super fast speed! TRaces attack is the greatly feared Imperialist. The imperialist is a sniping weapon. Its has a zoom feature that will zoom in even closer if the target is found. While using Imperialist Trace is invisible.
WEAKNESS:Trace is weak in alt form against Samus because as he is chasing Samus she'll be laying bombs and they'll all explode in Samus's face. He also has a weakness while sniping that he would be staying in one spot. If you find him then you'll be able to shoot him from behind.
Noxus: Noxus used to be my favorite character. Noxus's attack is the judicator which if charged can freeze the opponent for a while. It can also bounce off the wall. His alt form is the Vhoscythe which is basically a spinning top of doom. Noxus is best used agianst Sylux because his alt form will break the lockjaw energy field.
WEAKNESS: The judicator is not very strong and is bad for use in open areas
Sylux: Sylux is probably the second-to-most-used character in the game. His alt formis the Lockjaw which if you manages to catch the opponent within it's energy triangle (which there specifics in setting up) It will automatically kill you no matter how much health you have. Syluxes attack is the Shock Coil which will drain the opponetns energy and give it to you. It will also follow the opponents movements so oncve you lock on it stays on.
WEAKNESS: The lockjaw technique is very hard to handle. It must be practiced many times over.
Weavel: Weavel is not one the most used characters or one of the least used. But he does have many glitches attached to his alt form the half-turrent. The half turrent splits the body in half and and one half will go seeking while the other half shoots green plasma from its....head? Weavels attack is the
Battle-Hammer which is an explosive green plasma that when makes contact with the opponent will explode and cause extra damage. There is no charge needed.
WEAKNESS: The Battle-Hammer will not go straight and will drop from the sky making it extremly hard to aim.
That concludes this hint. I hope this helped with whatever you are doing in Metroid Prime Hunters!
