Neith, Goddess of Hunting

Neith, Goddess of Hunting, is one of the Favors in the game Immortal Redneck. Neith is unique among the Favors in that she grants a change to critical hits; namely, she increases the Redneck's chance to critically hit by a flat 10%, and his critical hit damage bonus by a flat 20%. She also provides a small bonus to max health and attack, but also a sizable penalty to both speed and defense. That speed penalty, combined with Neith's passive that increases damage over distance and the fact that she provides a Sniper Rifle, cuts out a fairly clear niche for the Huntress. Precision aiming over a distance is heavily rewarded by Neith, but the Tranquilizer Gun allows the Redneck to hold his own in close quarters as well by freezing enemies in place. The increased critical damage makes Neith the potentially most damaging Favor, but her kit is weaker against enemies that try to close the distance and she provides no real answer to hordes of enemies.

Strategy[]

Neith wants you to keep as much distance as possible, with her highly accurate and powerful weaponry and damage bonus over distance. Should the Redneck be forced into close combat, the Tranq combined with the Burst Machine Gun can make quick work of individual enemies, but Neith has no weapon effective against hordes, as her burst machine gun has heavy recoil that make it difficult to bring to bear against a large group of enemies and her Falcon only damages a single enemy per use, though it does a very large amount of damage. A high priority should be to replace the unreliable Burst Machine Gun with something a bit more consistent. The Tranq gun is always useful to have, since it can disable dangerous enemies or make lining up a shot with your other weapons a simple thing. If you want a slow, high-damage character but aren't interested in sniping from across the room, Apis might be a better choice.


Trivia[]

  • Neith is the only Favor that changes every stat from the basic Redneck class.
  • The way Neith's passive works is nearly identical to the item Lump of Coal from The Binding of Isaac.
