So, everyone works as a team to get the Leviathan to last 1000hp or so... although the last 5000 go exceptionally... tentatively. Then there's a sudden ceasefire. Some clueless newbie still shoots the Leviathan, bringing him down to 200-300 hp, and then there's a great salvo, everyone trying to get the last shot in.

 

Wouldn't it make more sense to make the mission about who does more damage to the Leviathan, rather than who deals the killing shot?

Suck it up, I took out the beast 3 times and lost the game in one of them.

How is that even possible to kill Leviathan and still lose?

Basically he captured the portal and I killed him right after. I was the only survivor, killed him, and lost by "cap".

Sounds like fun, uh?

I did the kill leviathan mission last, did the last 5 kills in a row, was top damage and didn't need to wait it out.

Basically most scrub teams get funneled to bad firing positions as they follow the leviathan and right before it dies most of them will be out of position for a kill shot.

Run straight towards Levi's big booty doesn't matter if it targets you with the main gun because it doesn't have the depression in the rear to hit you.

Then just hug its side and finish it off.

Tried that twice. First time his mooks finished me off as I was unable to hide anywhere, crawling through the open. Second time he just launched the landmines right under me, tracked me, and then bang, big gun to the face.

 

Currently I clean up the portal vicinity, then snipe him as he approaches the long roads, outside of his spot range. Disadvantage is second gun pen drops so much with distance I deal only damage with main gun. Still come up first in team damage-wise most of the time.

BTW, WHY doesn't anyone use Franken as sniper tank as intended? This result shooting out of Leviathan view range:

 

 

17601 vs Leviathan. One other guy did 7238. The rest died fighting bots, or dealt <1000 each.

That would be me!  Not interested in a level 1 sarcophagus, just the 5 wins.

 

Still, managed to kill it 8 times including once with the 2nd gun.

​It would not be WG without some way to turn missions into crap shoots.

How dare you, Sir, come hear spouting your common sense and joined up thinking. I mean really what were you thinking? ;)

And me: I simply don't care.
