Setting up Hunting Installations

The monsters in Rampage will attack in hordes, allowing you some time to create a plan your strategy and set up your defences. Throughout the stronghold you’ll find several Installation Platforms where you can set up a varied arsenal of Hunting Installations such as Cannons and Ballistae!


Types of Monsters in Rampage

The monsters in Rampage have icons above them, which gives you a clue on how best to counter them. Monsters with the blue icon focus their attacks on barricades and gates so must be dealt with quickly, otherwise they’ll break through! Those with the red icon are especially aggressive towards hunters so watch out for their attacks as you try to defend your gates. Monsters with green icons shoot projectiles from afar and can do a lot of damage if you don’t get rid of them fast!


Rampage tips

Successfully repelling monsters and completing side quests will allow you to level up your stronghold, gain access to better installations and earn better rewards.

Once the counter signal is activated your hunter will receive a huge boost in attack power. That’s your cue to draw your weapon and jump into action!


The Warriors of Kamura can help!

The Warriors of Kamura can also chip in and assist you in defending against the Rampage! Some may attack monsters directly, while others may boost the abilities of your other installations. However, they can only be called upon once per quest so be sure to call them in at the right time.
