Abe
Class: Trapper
Difficulty: Easy
Main Weapon: Custom Shotgun
Sidearm: Tracking Dart
Special: Stasis Grenades
Ability: Planet Scanner

Stasis Grenades do a good job controlling a Monster's movement while Abe's Custom Shotgun deals significant damage. Shoot a Tracker Dart into the Monster to make it easy to follow it when it runs away. Shoot a dart into the wildlife and if the Monster eats it, it'll be outlined too!

Abe is one of the many Hunters in Evolve, and is the third Trapper character that can be unlocked. You can unlock him only after getting One-Star in mastery with all of Griffin's kit.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Meet Abe. He doesn’t have some exotic pet helping him track prey, nor is he some grizzled vet that’s eager for his next big hunt. He’s just really tricky. Abe’s a bounty hunter – a smuggler, a thief and potentially the sneakiest Hunter of the bunch.

Weapon Loadout[edit | edit source]

Abe is a trapper by trade, meaning that the following loadout is focused on controlling the Monster, leaving heavy damage to the rest of the team.

  • Custom Shotgun Damage: High - Heavily modified and powerful shotgun for large game. Rapid fire for wide spread, slow trigger pull for small spread.
  • Tracking Dart Gun Damage: None - Dart rifle that deploys a tracking device able to show the general location of the Monster. You can also tag wildlife that track a Monster that eats them.
  • Stasis Grenades Damage: None - Temporarily slows movement from any of the Monster, or wildlife.
  • Mobile Arena Damage: None - Energy dome that traps the Monster and Hunters inside.

Strategic Role Summary[edit | edit source]

Abe is primarily a slowing force - whereas almost all the other Trappers can use a variety of items to stop the Monster, Abe's primary role is to slow the movement of the Monster through the use of his Stasis Grenades. A well-coordinated strike using these grenades can shift the balance of power in a fight towards the Hunters, and should be considered an indispensable part of a high-damage, trap-oriented strike force.
