Strategy

When you start this fight it’s important to keep your distance from Hyperius. The engineer’s nova attacks are fairly deadly, and he starts the fight with a few of them.

The first thing to do is split up and deal with the four loaders around the arena. By destroying these four loaders and having them inactive at the same time you’ll be able to directly damage Hyperius, so strong communication is the key. Talk to each other and make sure you’re dropping the bots at a similar time to one another.

Survival is important in this fight, particularly if your timing is off, so it’s worth having players dedicated to keeping others alive, and keeping their ammo topped up.
