Stinkstriders are large, ostrich-like, Mimics. Stinkstriders can run moderately fast. Stinkstriders are first encountered during the Mission "Stinkstriders" (MD0205).


Tips & AttacksEdit

Stinkstriders can fire purple waves of Haze, which can go up if they reach a slope.


The simplest way to avoid getting hurt, especially when cornered, is to fire, run to the other side of the bird while it cannot harm you, and repeat. If you time this correctly, it will not fire off any projectiles, and should be a fair bit faster to kill. Another method is using superior range. This requires some amount of experience in dealing with Stinkstriders, as you have to approximate how far their attack will extend. Stand a pace back and fire, step back, and repeat. A third option, if you think the first one is a bit risky, is to shoot and quickly fly to avoid the haze.


There are Several methods of attack here. One is to attack retreat to a safe distance run back up and attack, doing this until the Stinkstrider dies. The other method is to attack, wait until the Stinkstrider attacks and then jump over and attack from the back. Also repeat until dead. Yet another method is to attack it, quickly run (or roll) through it and hit it and run through it again, repeat till dead.

You can also stand at a distance, press DOWN and A and wait until he stops attacking, then repeat. Another method is to, if you have room, divebomb from above, then land on the side the bird is not attacking. Repeat until dead.


If possible hit it from an angle either below or above it. Otherwise, hit it, run back or jump over it, then run up and hit it again.

Another tactic is to swing into it and go on the other side. It will fire on the other side, away from you. Repeat several times to kill.
