Depending on the level of difficulty and the mission, you will encounter fearsome enemy types in Rainbow Six Extraction. However, as powerful as some archaea may appear to you, almost all of them have distinctive weaknesses. We introduce you to all aliens and tell you how you simply defeat them.
The enemies in Rainbow Six Extraction
The archaea are actually aliens that are mutated by the so-called Chimera parasite. This black, sticky mass keeps encountering you and slows you down when entering. Below we present all enemy types and which weak points you should target:
- Tier 1: Grunt , Spiker , Breacher , and Bloater
- Tier 2: Rooter and Sower
- Tier 3: Tormentor, Smasher and Lurker
- Tier 4: Apex
- Tier 5: Proteans
We left out the dazzling spores and slime in the listing. While these are threats you may encounter on missions, I wouldn’t call them a category of enemies. Either way, it’s best to shoot with a silenced weapon so you don’t make as much noise.
The grunt will probably be the alien you encounter the most. Without armor or protection, the champion can withstand only a few shots. If you want to kill him quickly and silently, put a bullet in his head – that’s his weak point.
The Champion will only become dangerous to you if he alerts other enemies around him and charges at you. Otherwise, you have a few problems with this Archaeon.
Strictly speaking, the shooter is an evolution of the fighter. The shooter has light armor on his arms, which he holds in front of his face when under fire. It protects its weak point, the head.
If a shooter notices you, you should quickly seek cover. It shoots spikes that can do high damage. If his fire decreases, he must “reload”. This is the perfect time to put a bullet between his eyes. Otherwise, you shoot at the torso or the legs if the shooter should keep his arms protectively in front of his head.
You can recognize the Sprenger by its large, red bubble on its back. This enemy will only become dangerous to you if it gets too close and explodes. A well-aimed shot at the bubble will detonate it, but you should then build up some distance so that you don’t get hit by the area damage.
If a blaster charges towards you, it will pause and stand just before detonating. If you back away from him while facing him, you will not be hit by the explosion in most cases. Also useful: Shoot the sprinkler by aiming at his body. He remains lying there with his bladder intact on his back. You can use this as a booby trap against other enemies. Just shoot them at the right moment.
The bloater is very similar to the sprinkler. Instead of a red one, the infestor carries a green blister on its back. In addition, he does not blow himself up, but robs you of your sight and emits poisonous gas that continuously damages you over time.
You also want to eliminate the infestor with a well-aimed shot at the bubble from a great distance. In the best case, you should also aim at the body against him, so that you can use his bubble on his back as a booby trap against other archaea.
The Rooter walks on four legs and is lightly armored – this combination makes it difficult to kill. When a Rooter charges at you, most of your bullets will ricochet off the creature’s head and foreleg armor. So always shoot at the body!
The Rooter will rear up as soon as it sees you, alerting its Archaea allies. This is the best time to target his vulnerable lower body. Also, beware of his projectiles, which he will periodically fire at you if you move away from him. These freeze you and make you very vulnerable.
One could describe the blender as an evolution of the rooter. Although the Blender is not as armored as its counterpart, it places small mines that blind you for a short time when you get close and trigger them. These mines glow red but are easy to miss. One bullet is enough to wipe them out.
The weak point of this enemy type is on its stomach and on its back. The blender also reveals this sore point when he discovers you. Always keep a large distance between you and the cattle.
The tormentor is one of the strongest enemy types because in the liquid form he can quickly teleport to other places and thus almost never loses sight of you. He also shoots projectiles, which makes it much more difficult for you to fight this alien.
As soon as the tormentor shoots out of the ground, you should use smoke grenades or stun grenades to stun him. This gives you more time to stuff it full of bullets. This alien does not have an exact weak point. Best aimed at the body.
The smasher is one of the strongest archaea. You’ll probably hear it before you see it. Although you should always keep your distance when you have aroused a rager, he will then increasingly rush towards you at such a rapid pace and with such tremendous force that you will hardly be able to stop him.
You should always wrap a rager in smoke. So you can approach him unnoticed and perform an elimination. His weak spot on his back will then also glow red. As a sled, you can even paralyze the rager with a targeted hammer blow.
The Lurker lives up to its name because it can make itself invisible. Once alerted, the Stalker is a formidable opponent. He can also hide his weak spot on his head, so you should take him out with a targeted shot as soon as you see him.
If you get into a duel with the sneak and he hides his weak spot, you can reveal it with a melee attack. But then you have to be very quick, otherwise, the sneak will go back into defense position and protect itself. Scanning and tagging lurkers are extremely important.
The lord ( apex ) moves around quickly and spawns new enemies until you kill him. That means for you: Always get rid of the prince as quickly as possible! Best case scenario, ping him and fire at this alien as a team.
You should especially avoid the projectiles that blind you. You will quickly be overrun by the army that the prince is drawing from the darkness. One of the best operators for this fight is Alibi. She can drop a decoy that distracts the lord. Meanwhile, you sneak up on him from behind and pump him full of lead.
Proteans will frighten you particularly much because you fight against an image of your own ego. This enemy type can take advantage of the abilities of other Operators and fight you with your own weapons and abilities.
So there is no clear strategy against this special alien. However, you should be aware that it takes the firepower of the entire team to hunt down a Proteans.
V Rising: Best Axes Build for both PvP and PvE
V Rising has in-depth Character customization including weapons and magic spells as well. In this guide, we have made an extremely OP build for both PvP and PvE game modes. This build is made using Axes weapons. This build also suits the playstyle in countering actual players as well as bandits and different animals or monsters you counter in V Rising. PvP is also really good using these axes build. If you don’t have many friends and you’re a solo player, this build is the best build in terms of solo grinding. The complete build counters both healing and combat making this build really good.
This build will completely tell you all the Weapons abilities, Magic abilities, and the blood type used with the build.
We have used axes in this build and there are a bunch of weapon abilities used with it as well. The Axes we are using are the Dark Silver Axes with a gear level of 21. The weapon abilities you want to put on the axes are the following.
- Primary Attack: It performs a combo attack and deals 45% – 55% physical damage.
- Frenzy: This ability will add more mobility and you dash forward while hitting. The first enemy will get hit with 100% physical damage. The movement speed will increase by 25%.
- X-Strike: These are the blades that you throw towards the enemies and it boomerangs back to you. It’s each hot with the blade will deal 85% physical damage.
- Veil of Chaos: In terms of mobility, you want to have this ability because it works best with the frenzy ability. When you dash into the enemies with the frenzy ability, you can dash out with the veil of chaos and leave an illusion of yours behind and after a couple of seconds, the illusion will explode, dealing more damage to the enemies. The explosion will deal 50% magic damage to enemies.
The magic abilities are also very important in the V Rising especially in the PvP because you want to make more plays with your teammates and you do want to use the magic in the fight to gain the benefits. The magic abilities that you want to have in this build are the following.
- Purgatory: It creates a pillar that slows enemies and heals the allies and yourself. It deals 75% of magic damage to enemies.
- Sanguine Coil: It gives you a range attack ability so you can attack from far. The projectile launch at enemies will deal 75% magic damage.
- Crimson Beam: It is also for the ranged attack, a beam will be struck in a direction and you can hold it for 4 seconds. The beam will deal 150% magic damage to enemies.
Now the Blood Type is also very important in the build because the blood type will improve certain abilities of your character. The Blood type you want to use for this build is Brute. The Brute Blood type will give you the following increments.
- 7.5% – 12.5% Primary Attack life leech.
- 7.5% – 15% Increased Primary attack speed and gain 1 gear level.
- Healing received increased by 20% – 35%.
Now with these increments all of your abilities that heal allies and yourself, will be amplified to 20% – 35%. Even your primary attack will give you life leech meaning healing you while you are hitting the enemies. All the magic abilities heal your allies and yourself so, their healing stats will also increase with this blood type.
V Rising: How to complete the Servants Quest
In V Rising, you can also make humans NPC your servants, it is a very good and useful mechanic to get resources and manage your Castle base. You don’t have to go for yourself to gather the required resources for the upgrades, you can just order your servants and they will do the rest of the work.
In this guide, we tell you how to complete the servant quest in V Rising tutorial.
How to Complete the Servants Quest
In order to complete the servant quest, you need to make a servant coffin. In order to make the servant coffin, you need to gather a couple of items that will be used in the crafting of the Servant Coffin. The items required to make the Servant Coffin are the following:
After getting both of the required materials, now you need to make the Servant Coffin. In order to make the servant Coffin, you should have 16 Planks, 8 Copper Ingots, and 1 Greater Blood Essence. If you don’t have these required resources then you need to get these resources first. You can make Copper Ingot in Tannery Structure and Plank in Sawmill structure.
After getting all the materials and resources, now you can make the Servant Coffin. Open the Production menu and select the Dominance section, you’ll see Servant Coffin there. Click on the Coffin and place it at your desired position in the Castle.
After that, you just need to escort any Human NPC inside the Servant Coffin and it will convert that human to your servant and then you can give him orders.
V Rising: How to get Greater Blood Essence in an easy way
V Rising game has the mechanics of recipes as well that your vampire can make in the Blood Press machine. This material is the stronger version of the regular Blood Essence that you get by feeding on different enemies or living things. In this guide, we tell you how to get the Greater Blood Essence in an easy way in the game.
Greater Blood Essence
Greater Blood Essence is a recipe that can be made in the Blood Press machine that you have to craft in your Castle base. After you’ve crafted the Blood Press you can make different recipes in it which’ll give you different benefits. The Greater Blood Essence works exactly the same as the regular Blood Essence but it has more efficiency.
You can use it to upgrade the Heart Castle, increase the fortified time of the castle, use it to turn humans into obedient servants, and use it to learn the sealed knowledge. In order to make 1 Greater Blood Essence, you’d need to have 150 Blood Essence and the Blood Press will combine the 150 Blood Essence into Greater Blood Essence.
How to Get Greater Blood Essence in Easy Way
The Greater Blood Essence is a high-level material and the first that you’d get this will be from the Tristan the Vampire Hunter Boss. You’d get this recipe by defeating him. That boss is 46 level and you have to be at least level 40 to defeat him. But there is also another easier way to make this recipe using items other than Blood Essence.
The way you can make this recipe is by getting the Unsullied Hearts. The unsullied Hearts are dropped by the mobs that have a little higher level than the regular mobs. You’d find these mobs in a different area of the map. You can recognize them by their level, if there is an enemy that has a higher level than the enemies around him that means he can drop you the unsullied heart.
Normally the bosses in Blood Altar can drop you the unsullied Hearts. Almost every boss will drop an unsullied heart and what you want to do is that you need to gather the unsullied hearts and bring them back to base to store them. Make sure that you do not consume it while you are low on health. Save these hearts for making the Greater Blood Essence when the recipe is unlocked.
The 4 unsullied Hearts would make 1 Greater Blood Essence and if you want to make it with the Blood Essence then it would cost 150 Blood Essence. That is the only reason to save the hearts so, you can make numbers of Greater Blood Essence material.
