HIVE builds
on: October 13, 2020, 10:11:34 AM
Wanted to share what in my opinion most effective builds for HIVE.
-"Jack of all trades"
Weapon: SHY
Talent: MAELSTROM and EMPATHY.
This one is self explanatory , its boost both her offensive and defensive capabilities. Shy is best all rounder weapon HIVE have at current moment and fit this build very well

-"Versatility with sprinkle of sustainability"
Weapon: SHY
Talent:  DYNAMIC EPIMORPHOSIS and EMPATHY
This one is simillar to previous build but focused more about survivability.
You may think dynamic is not fit well with Shy but its very deceiving , each shot restore around 20-30 hp and really noticable

-"Slide for the win"
Weapon: SHY
Talent: MAELSTROM and DRONES
Build focused around damage.Kill enemy, get buff from maelstrom,infect enemy,slide near them and watch them melt

-"Duelist"
Weapon:SHY
Talent: DYNAMIC EPIMORPHOSIS/IRATE and DEBILITATING PHEROMONES
Build focused around 1vs1 situations
It was hard to choose one card from Wardog talents , so there two options depending what you want more: better offense or defense
Very niche build but can be very effective in duel situations

-"Horde Slayer"
Weapon: WASP
Talent: DYNAMIC EPIMORPHOSIS and ENZYMES
THE BEST build to clear hordes of enemies. You both have high DPS thanks to Wasp and good survivability by bonuses what talents give

-"Spam that Stroma"
Weapon: WASP
Talent: DYNAMIC EPIMORPHOSIS and STROMA
Best support build for HIVE but also allow you to have good damage output. However there is big con: due to nerf of Wasp essence gain , you would never get full essence bar without cards. Meaning in this build you have very low survivability

-"Clouds and Punches"
Weapon: RACEME
Talent: EXACERBATED and ADAPTIVE EVOLUTION
With this you can get essence very easy and go full ham in CQC , thanks to talents you will very serious threat in CQC , 520 hp and 113 punch dmg.
Still dont be reckless and think you are immortal , being cautious is best way to keeping yourself alive.

-"The Plague"
Weapon: PLAGUE
Talent: MAELSTROM and EXPLORERS
With this you can literally infect and leech everything in your way , no matter if enemy in cover or not , just get close to them and suck them dry through walls , cells , anything
A very niche and map depended build
 
What about MM-6C?
You can use same builds as Shy and Plague have
Still i would not advice using MM , its just overall weakest weapon in her arsenal
