I have not yet purchased The Protector Trials but plan on doing so shortly.
I was watching this YouTube video in which only plasmids are allowed, and the player in this particular instance was making heavy use of Cyclone Trap + Electro Bolt.
What I was wondering was if using Electro Bolt w/ Cyclone Trap will net you the best damage bang for your Adam buck rather than some of the other goodies you can juice a Cyclone Trap up with.
For point of reference: I'm not a heavy Cyclone Trap user and barely used it in my playthroughs so far, so I'm not very familiar with which Plasmid Traps would be best for this application (where you can't use any weapons and will have to rely heavily on this alternate means of damage dealing).
So what's everybody using with Cyclone Trap?
I don't think you can loot dead splicers in Protector Trials so...
- would Winter Blast create a shattering splicer situation (which sounds like the most efficient kill method) which has no down side since you can't loot anyway?
- would Incinerate! be best since the splicer will continue to be dealt damage while still aflame?
- would Hypnotize be optimal since the splicer (if he/she survives the fall) will attack other nearby splicers when they land from the Cyclone ride?
- does Electro Bolt deal more damage than I'm thinking (more than Incinerate!)?
Of course please mention any other plasmids that I'm overlooking that which combine well with Cyclone Trap.
I'll tack a poll onto this too, to see what the majority is using and thinks most effective.
