Gorge : The Guide
Life through the eyes of a gorgeThe Life Of A Gorge
The uncomprehensive, and half length guide to (in my opinion) one of the most important units (if you will) in the game.
Lets start off with the basics before we go into more complex stuff.
Gorge - A slow, chubby, rodent sized builder class.
Gorge Attacks - Ranged Light Damage; Health Spray; Web; Babblers
Now....from the looks of it, he is a very weak, yet dont let his looks decieve you, for he is very strong and useful.
I have personnally gone 28-0 and even better (thats my only *-0 score) with a simple few tips that can help improve your gorge game.
Teamplay, use it
Always run with a good pack of 2-3 skuls in early game
Bad team? ok
If you cannot seem to get a good team, build in the backround and secretly
Dont waste rescourses on re-evolving, stay alive!!
Now that you have some simple tips...its time to give you the meat and potatoes, yes thats right, how to build properly..
Bob the builder
Ok, first off, you should know how to build chambers correctly, heres the breakdown:
If you have elevation on the enemy, use it, block the door with 2 [O] and put 2 [O] on the railing or something, always put 2 [D] behind every 2[O] to be effective.
STACK YOUR TOWERS!!!!, I cannot stress this more...there is nothing like having a stack of towers.
Stack ON the resource nozzle, this works very well in cases with a vent behind it, and also makes it more difficult for the enemy to tell apart.
Use webs low to the ground, and if a person is webbed, web while he is webbed so he will run into them and with ease let your towers/babblers slap him up
On The Attack?
Send babblers ahead, there just as destructive as they are good scouts. If you want them to go to a target, I think you can just shoot it with your ranged attack and they will focus on it.
Support your teamates!
Health spray is very powerful and in many cases better than the commanders health kits if used right. Best used with: Health Spray/Fade and Lerk/Umbra/Health Spray, all very very efficient and strong.
Skill points to use as a gorge:
Movement : Adrenaline
Defense : Carapace
Sensory : Cloak or Scent Of Fear (if attacking)
Web, Cloak, Await your prey (babblers)
Babbler Drop (drop babblers out of a vent)
Babbler Ladder (Shoot babblers and climb, extremely difficult and wont always work)
Health Spray and Pray (It actaully has range despite its image)
While building a rescource nozzle, it is possible to get stuck, just f4 out or type kill in the console...sorry
While building a tower it is possible to get stuck, same thing
Babblers wont always fire, I recommend testing with it in certain areas, usually you need room.
Good playing, I hope this helps you!!
