Back 4 Blood has been a game that has been on practically every gamer’s radar for months on end now. Well, after a long wait, it’s almost over and the live beta is currently in full swing. Meaning that players can get to know the characters, maps, weapons and enemies present within the B4B universe. Today, we are going to focus on the latter, allowing players to get the jump on the enemies in the game and know what they have to throw at them before you step into the fray. In this guide, we take a look at the B4B Ridden variant, the Stinger.
What is a Stinger In Back 4 Blood?
Stingers are four armed enemy variants that you will find in B4B. These enemies are known for their super human agility, their ability to close down players fast with their insane leaps and their ability to climb walls and surfaces, meaning they can take unusual paths to reach the player. The end goal of this mutant is to sneak up on you, hiding in the shadows and sticking close to walls, then they pin you down and immobilise you unless a teammate can come to your aid.
In terms of a appearance, this enemy is a female model with a bald head with stands of hair hanging from the sideburns. This creature wears tattered grey trousers and no top. Where the breasts would-be, two arms protrude from the creature allowing the creature to cling to walls while still throwing projectiles. The creature also has a set of razor sharp teeth and piercing red eyes.
The Stalker variant is slightly different in appearance with the key difference being a bulging portion of brain protruding from the head. Then as for the Hocker, this creature has a huge abscess hanging from it’s mouth. What are the Unique Stinger Variants?
What are the Unique Stinger Variants?
As mentioned above, there are two unique Stinger variants. These are the Hocker and the Stalker. These creatures have a little less health than the common Stinger but do have a series of special abilities that more than make up for that. Here is a brief description of each:
Stalker: This version of the Slalker is much more capable at close range with a powerful melee attack and projectile attacks to call upon. It also has a pounce ability that allows the monster to grab the player and drag them away from their team.
Hocker: Hockers are much more capable from long range. This creature keeps the projectile attack of the standard enemy. Then it also has a harpoon attack which pins the player in place and deals damage over time until they are freed by a teammate.
