Snakehoppers are Mimics that jump to move around. They always jump a set distance, and they can jump over a player standing still. Because of this simple movement style, it is easy enough to predict where to stand so as not to be able to be hit.


Tips & AttacksEdit

The only way you can get damaged by the Snakehopper is by contact. It hops around either left or right after a few seconds in the first place, there is enough room to run under it when it is jumping.


Hit and run is the name of the game. Shoot at it, then avoid it's jump, then shoot again. Easy to kill once you get used to the pattern. Sometimes they get in an area where they cannot reach you, due to some obstruction keeping them from jumping directly on top of you. Use this to your advantage.


For this class the most effective way of fighting Snakehoppers is to use an attack and dodge pattern. Close in and attack before it jumps for the first time. After you attack, the Snakehopper will either jump left or right. You will have enough time to chaindash out of the way of its jump. After it lands, attack again and repeat the pattern.


Get next to the Snakehopper and use a normal sideways attack. Be close enough so that it can jump over you, and you may use a well-time upward attack to get an extra hit in when he's above you.
