When attacked, the Howler will spawn 5-6 Skulkers that will attack the player as well.
Howler corpse can be skinned with a blade to harvest :
Weaknesses & Resistances
- Base health : 5500 HP.
- Resistances : None.
- Weaknesses : .50 Cal Rounds.
- Weak spot : Head (+25% damage).
The Howler itself is not very difficult to kill, it's a bullet sponge.
The difficulty is managing the several Skulkers spawning around. They hit very hard. Need to outrun them and fire at them, and again and again.
Recommended ranged weapons
- RPG for 2-shot kill.
- 100+ Elite guns for 50-shot kill (38 in the head).
- M249 Heavy MG for 73-hit kill (55 in the head).
- Carabine for 39-shot kill (but too slow).
Recommended melee weapons
- None. It would need too much hits and you would receive too much melee damage.
