Normally Hunters are the hardest Covenant to kill, due to their powerful armor & shields. However, even the strongest armor has weak spots. In the event you look at their necks or backs, you can see an orange spot. Aim for it. shot with any gun will kill them in the event you hit them there. The best way to kill a hunter is to make use of a sniper rifle to zoom in on the orange spot. In the event you are being chased by a Hunter or an alien with a sword, run backwards while facing the alien. Jump when they try to slash you. Throw a plasma grenade at the alien & it will stick to him. Turn around & run in a zig-zag pattern to make definite they does not catch you in the explosion. In the event you are playing cooperative multi-player mode, have player run in front of the Hunter until his back is turned to player. While the Hunter is trying to turn player in to mush, have player run up to the Hunter's back & melee assault the orange spot. The Hunter ought to die with hit. You can kill the Hunters in a head-on assault. Get in close & use the pistol or shotgun. Aim for the head holding down the trigger. Your first shot(s) will knock back the head, exposing the unarmored neck. shot in the neck & they will die.
