This is my eighth character breakdown for Horde. If you haven’t checked out my other guides, please feel free to do so. Just type in Hu1k in the search and my guides should pop up.
-Lizzi-The Bad ■■■. Talk about a great character added to the game. She is is fun to play can really add a unique play-style to your game. She has some of the best voice lines in the game (Arguably the best Laugh) and being able to ride the Silverback is so much fun. Lizzie also works great with any quick firing weapon due to one of her skill cards and is also a must for a GL.
So, lets frag tag a Snatcher in the face and take a look on how to use her.
General Playstyle and Early Levels
Lizzie is a Tank sub-class but is the only Tank to have the Support Passive (Enemies you mark reduces your cooldown) instead of the normal Tank Passive of your cooldown being reduced by the damage you take. So, just know that even though you have a Silverback, don’t go YOLOing out all the time, unless its in dire need.
She is more of an Offensive Support/Explosive expert type role. She can fill many different needs and can help her team in ltterly slowing down the Swarm. She also has some great personal skill upgrades that make using her even more fun.
Here are her Personal Skill Upgrade Options while in game:
Top-Health Level Increase
Down-Speed Level Increase
Left-Health Regin Increase
Right-Cooldown Timer Increase
All four of these choices are good with Cooldown, Health and Speed being your 1,2,3 in order of importance. Since Lizzie can summon a Powerful Silverback to battle having the option to get it back quickly always helps.
When you first start playing as Lizzie and are super pumped to summon your Silverback for the first time. You may notice that you can do anything other than Stomp (Pressing the B button on the controller). Well that is because Lizzie starts out as extremely weak on her lower Character levels and the Silverback can only shoot what ever Skill Card you have Equipped (More on than in a moment).
Now Lets take a look at some early card selections/skills you can apply:
Quick Ice Cannon,Rear Armor,Explosive Munitions, Deep Pockets
This is what you would be looking at around Rank 5. The only early weapon you can apply to your sweet Silverback would be the Ice Cannon at rank 2. This is not a bad early on weapon for your SB but it is a means to an end, as Lizzie has much better options later on. Rear Armor is kinda Pointless unless you plan on walking backwards to the Swarm on turning around at the last second to Ice them. (Hmm not a bad Idea) Explosive Munitions is really a toss Card in my option. As this will limit you to being a Statue that cant move and not really that great. Deep pockets can be helpful if you are a big John Wick fan, but its better used for Escape.
Mid Level Playstyle
All right. I can see you where “Born to Ride”. You will be happy that you have made it this far.
Lizzie at the Mid Level can be super fun but her later level cards are where she truly excels. So lets go over this real quick before getting to the good stuff.
Lets take a good look at what Cards/Skills you can setup with at Level 9:
Exploding Buzzkill, Aggressive Armor, Healing Munitions, Explosive Munitions, Quick Ice Cannon
With this setup. Lizzie becomes pretty fun. I would personally recommend Equipping the Explosive Buzzkill first before the Ice cannon in your Skill Card Selection as this would equip it to your Right Hand and Not your left. Reason being is due to the reloads needed for the Buzzkill and not for the Ice Cannon. Aggressive Armor is not a bad card to use at this point and when leveled even more can actually help you stay alive up to Insane Difficulty. Healing Munitions works well with Explosive Munitions but you may want to rely on your Stim armor to get close before summoning the SB. And sine you only have one other weapon choice to choose from, the Ice cannon is here by default.
High Level Playstyle
"Look out there is a Bad ■■■ over here** Oh yea!! you made it. Lizzie gets to be kinda OP at this point, especially when you get some of these cards Leveled. So lets dive right into it.
This is what you would be looking at for level 16.
Silverback Salvo, Healing Tri-Shot, Healing Explosives, Cold Finish, Aggressive Armor
Cold finish, Cold finish, Cold finish!!! If you are not using this card, then you must stop right now and get this equipped. This Card is a pure game changer. This card helps your team, Ignores DBNO, and is a Mini Boss destroyer. Sure it helps on Bosses too, but for the Mini’s, they be done. Silver Back Salvo is really good once you get it to at least level 2. As on the early levels you still kinda break even on time. Healing Tri-Shot is awesome as it will continue to heal the SB while also doing damage. Healing Explosives just works too good with Aggressive Armor. This is why having this load out with a JD giving you a GL is a good choice. The quick fire on the GL will keep your armor up for the most part. And if you start to get low on health and Grenade Launch them in the face and ta-da. Instantly healed.
This is my personal favorite setup for Lizzie and she actually has some other options you can try but are more for fun than efficiency. Cold Finish is one of the best cards in the game-hands down. So I would equip this bad boy as soon as you can.
Normally I would go over some additional info but the community has been so generous in adding information in the comments, ill just let them dive in.
OK, that about sums up everything. I hope this can help you out and of course these sets are designed for players playing in random Custom matches. If you find a better set, let it be known below.
If any questions, post them here. Good Luck Gears!
