The only real complaints i have are:
lack of cover: aside from bush camping, there is NO way to avoid the monster. the closest I ever got to winning was right after picking up a Jerry can. The thing camped that area walking back and forth forever with no opportunity to leave. I'm not asking for more "press E to become invisible" locations, just give us some low shrubbery or something that we can put between us and the spider so we don't have to afk for 3 hours waiting for the AI to meander off to the other side of the map.
Lack of Inventory: This is an issue that greatly compounds my first complaint. having such limited hiding spots isn't so bad if you have easy access to distractions. The fact that i have to ditch my rock in order to get the spider to simply LOOK in the wrong direction is too big a trade off to ever be worth it, especially when the monster has crysis delta levels of vision (aka "is that a pixel of you poking out behind that tree I see from across the map? yeah i totally see you!").
