I always have a hard time defending the White Forest base against the oncoming Striders and Hunters. My problem is that I cannot kill the Striders as long as the Hunters are alive as they always shoot the Magnusson Devices before I can attach them to the Strider or before I can shoot them to blow up the Strider.
For this reason I always kill the Hunters first before I take on the Striders. The problem with Hunters is that they are somewhat tough. So I usually resort to running them over with my car. This is, however, not as easy as one would hope because the map is full of obstacles and Hunters sometimes move in the last seconds before I can run them over. Also they are often very close to their Strider so that the Strider's legs get in my way. This means I frequently have to reverse and try to hit the Hunter again and again.
Hitting the Hunters takes up most of the time I spend on the entire battle. This is a very lengthy process which means I usually end up losing all buildings on the map and towards the end it is always a very close call whether I can hold the Striders off from shooting the base.
I was wondering what your tactics are to take care of the Hunter issue. Is there some better way that could kill them faster? I am aware of the secondary fire mechanism of the AR2 but I usually have only 3 shots of ammo for that and that is not going to be sufficient for the about 20 Hunters that will need to be killed in the course of the battle.
