The best support skills and strategies in Evil Dead: The Game
Support characters are essential to the survival of the party in Evil Dead: The Game. Each team should have exactly one support character – without one, survivors are much more likely to be overrun by evil forces. Each support character excels at protecting their teammates differently, so picking the right character for the team can be a huge boon.
Original-tasting Cheryl, Pablo, and Ash might not end the match with the most kills, but their presence makes it much more likely that the ritual will be over and the Kandarian demon will be banished.
As a support, your job is to stay with the group no matter where they go. If someone runs away into the woods alone (which often happens appallingly), don’t try to rescue them – support leaving the main group is exactly what the Demon wants.
When a Survivor runs out of health and bleeds out during a battle, it’s critical that support drop everything and revive them. Support characters have early skills that benefit the whole group when they’re the only one to revive a fallen teammate. If another Survivor dies, let someone else take their soul since you will have to focus on protecting the soul carrier when the party reaches an altar.
Supports eventually acquire the ability to carry more Shemp’s Cola and amulets. While you absolutely must use them as needed to keep yourself alive, the purpose of your extra carrying capacity is to allow you to drop items for other survivors to take when they need them. It’s good practice to assess everyone’s health after each Artifact fight and drop as many items as needed near the loot box that spawns.
While you’ll definitely see your share of combat throughout the match, you should leave high level weapons to other survivors. All you need is a decent weapon in each slot to defend yourself with, and your team will take care of the rest. Keep an eye out for used items when a teammate dumps their old weapon for a better one – that Rare Machete isn’t doing anything useful lying on the ground, after all.
The exception to this rule is if you are sort of the only Ash on the team. In this rare scenario, you have every right to take the best chainsaw you can find – who else is going to use it?
As you find bottles of Pink F throughout the match, focus your growth on health and stamina. It will keep you alive longer and make it easier sprint towards the survivors who need your help.
Support characters should focus more on skills that help them do their job only on skills that increase their combat effectiveness. Whichever character you choose, FIRST AID and Courage in numbers are important early picks as they will grant additional benefits when you revive a teammate.
Ash Williams (Evil Death)
Ashi is the most combative of the supports, making the top row of the skill tree an essential part of his strategy. Unlike Cheryl and Pablo, Ash has to be aggressive to grant the team their unique perks.
Wig Splitter further increases Ash’s headshot advantage, and his prerequisite see stars makes him more likely to use heavy melee attacks. A detour in stopping power once tier three is unlocked, Ash’s ranged attacks are generally better even if he misses the headshot.
Support Ash should use one-handed rapid weapons like the machete. Since his heavy melee attacks heal the team, he should do them as often as possible.
Cheryl eventually gains the ability to benefit the whole team when she drinks a Shemp’s Cola, her first priority should therefore be fill the second row from the bottom. Its carrying capacity for the sublime soda is increased with Deep Pockets: Shemp’s Colaand each level of Pop packaging allows him to start the match with a can already in his inventory.
From there, Cheryl is in an excellent position to continue on the same branch, improve your health with industrial strength before becoming the ultimate revival machine with good karma and Brave survivor.
Pablo Simon Bolivar
Pablo can craft amulets for the team, but that doesn’t mean he shouldn’t make heavy use of them himself.
Deep pockets: amulets, Empowered Amuletand Improved Amulet all go a long way towards making Pablo the toughest support character to take down.
If you don’t mind sacrificing some healing ability, the requirement for Long-lasting batteries for Amulet skills give Pablo a springboard to unlock Arcane Knowledge and Fast forward, making it much easier to collect Map Pieces and Artifacts in a timely manner. Not only does this prevent the clock from running out, but it gives the demon less time to level up before the final battle!
