    I'm still ok with RSL -1, a couple bodyshots, all is standard.
    Golden Ruthless works nice on them as on any big guys

    They do seem tough as fduck, I can admit that.

    You can't stand next to the spiked or burning walker when attacking, or you will receive damage like a regular scout weapon. You need to use the distance of the pitchfork not to get hurt @theldssdl

    @FearMeDaryl

    I believe it is like using spear/pitchfork against flaming walkers. Doesn't matter if there's a space or not, you still get burned/spiked. Makes no sense to me, but NG has not indicated any plans to change it.

    Worth noting though, if you kill the spiked walker with a melee, you Do Not take bleeding damage (unless mechanics changed since last time we had spikeys).

    @Mabiki From my experience this Challenge you can attack a Spiked walker with the Spear and you won't take damage/bleed. You can also Interrupt them (if they are within the allowable RSL range for Interrupt to trigger).

    I've been using a scout with the pitchfork the entire challenge (on rsl24 now) and have not been hurt from a spiked or burning walker as long as I keep my distance when attacking them. I learned first round that I couldn't stand next to them and attack without getting hurt.

    Hmm, surprising, but good to know. My pitchfork is low level so won't help me atm but great info to have. Thanks.

    It is possible to wrestle and kill a spiked walker at the higher levels once you start accepting 1 star as well.

    My understanding is struggle with a spiked walker results in immediate death and mission failure, but I haven't tested recently. Hopefully someone else can confirm since I don't feel like making a sacrifice right now.

    The Pitchfork/Spear are super useful against the Spiked walkers, but you can also use any Melee against them as long as you kill them on your turn. You have to make sure that the Melee survivor gets that job done. If you don't kill the Spiked walkers and they get a hit on your survivor, you will definitely bleed. Spiked walkers only cause bleeding when they strike on their turn.

    I've had no problems with them so far. I just make sure to have special skill available at the times they come into play.

    Later levels will be awkward perhaps ... but that is later levels and you need to strategise more anyway.

    But with those things I just don't leave it to chance.

    Hi guys, just want to know if anyone is facing the same problem or am i the only one that find that the spike walkers are especially hard to kill in this challenge? I use 2 assaults (abe and rosita, both epic) and 1 hunter(daryl, leg) Any other classes that will be useful against them? thanks!

    A level 29 spiker is over 30k health but you can kill them if you have the wrestle trait on your armor and are willing to accept 1 star on the mission. Good luck to us all.

    @Mabiki I have successfully killed the spiker on that first mission multiple times using wrestle armor rather than waste all the multitude of shots needed to kill a level 29 with over 30k of original health. Good luck.

    @NCDawgFan ,if your survivor struggle with a spiked walker,they die immediately.(if wrestler trait does not work at the first turn)
