After getting wiped by Fleshpounds two times in a row with public players i got a little pissed and decided to give some advise what to do and what not to do.
First of all, this dude is not a tank. Don't shoot all you got on him once he is in sight, just please don't!
Maybe... maybe you noticed the yellow/red bar in his chest, that shows if he is in rage or not. As long as he is yellow, everything is fine. He will be like a cute kitty and u can easily run him out even if you carry a lot. So, did i mention not to shoot him on sight?
Fleshpounds are the toughest enemies except the Patriach, but the people who should read this probably didnt see him on normal/long yet.
-First thing you have to do is to decide which tactic you want to use for him. Depending on that you should have Fleshpound Setups ready on wave 6+.
-You can either just go 2 or 3 support with hunting shotgun or one hunting shotgun and a flamer. IF someone is good with LAW, do LAW + Hunting Shotgun.
-When u spot a Fleshpound DO NOT SHOOT, notify your team where he is and quickly decide what to do:
-> If he is one of the last enemys in the wave or you have lots of space to run around without beeing surrounded do tactic 1.
-> If its a tight space or there are lots of other enemys around and you cant leave where you barricaded do tactic 2.
This works really good on open maps like westlondon or farm or just when you killed almost all other enemys. Don't all shoot him at once, speak with each other and let one guy fire single shots and run. If you do 2 headshots with winchester, switch to knife and run a bit, 2 headshots again he won't go into rage! This gives him a behaviour like mentioned above. Works fine when one guy focusing with that tactic on the FP and the others shoot a way free for them to move.
Kinda like all or nothing. If you dont have enough space to lure or need to get rid of him fast, tell your team to just hold fire and then give him the most concentraded blow u got. This means 2xdouble barrel headshot point blank or 1xshotgun and 1xrocket. That way he dies right when he goes into rage. Another way is to have a flamer guy incinerate him from most possible long range and then while the FP is charging at him do the "doublebarrel to the head"-thing.
As for now, i keep playing with friends only or solo till people found out how he works. Hope a few people read this.
Solo or friends? so when ur friends aren't around thats it? how picky, I better not see u in my server. pfft, KICKED.
