Strategies

With

Snapdragon is excellent when it comes to close to mid range damage. His high health makes him able to take a beating and give the zombies the same treatment. He isn't very fast, so try to get a quick vanquish or run away while you still can. His ranged attack isn't too reliable, but his Flame Blower is really effective. Try to aim for the zombies head's for extra damage. Do keep in mind that fire damage will not kill enemies. It will leave your enemies at 1 HP. Snapdragon can use Blazing Trail to block off zombie pathways, use Blazing Trail from a distance to pick off targets, and use Swoop Slam to reach high areas or escape. However, Snapdragon can't do much when far away from enemies, so it's best to use Swoop Slam to get close to enemies to burn them or land a fatal direct hit with it
