Does anyone know how to prevent headcrab from jumping in the War? Often it jumps on a hero, but sometimes it doesn't.
What works for me is either kill it before it jumps, archer usually does the trick, or bring bulwark angel. For some reason crabs don’t jump on her.
Bulwark & Bodyguard Bro are both immune if the first hero in the line - both assumed to be bugs - other than that, kill it before it jumps with archer / bone etc.
Lol all I see in the replies are further proof that the game hated me; both bulwark and bro could get the crab on them when put first. Due to this I either put a hero (like mega or anything that can be resurrected) in the line up with angel dragon or some low basic damage or either self healing/great life steal hero (pixie or if very careful; burnt one)
Bulwark never gets jumped by a crab. Not a single time has this happened to anyone in my guild since the release. Just never use bulwarks super she will jump behind the crabs who then can jump on the next in line
Bard usually KO's the head crab right away.
