[0.8.2|Ma|6|YASD] A little rusty and it shows
« on: January 10, 2017, 16:50 »

So, I felt inspired by Moonshine Fox's game to try this out again.  It's been a while since I played and I think it shows that I've grown too dependent on the features available in the 0.8.4 version beta, because I didn't make it.  :(  Oh well...

I tried playing as a Marine for the challenge and got as far as level 6.  I spent most of my time in the storage tower, trying to stock up on ammo, while making occasional trips into the military tower in the hopes of finding a heavy weapon so I could have some diversity of ammo types available.  (which I never found)  In the end, I died as a result of a pair of Elites that came at me at once.  I killed one of them and was trying to back off from the other one so I could use a med pack, when a Hunter came out of nowhere and made things more difficult.  I probably should have used a stimpack at that point to help me escape, but I was so low on health that I figured they'd probably kill me while I was using it.  In the end, I died at the same time as using a med pack.

Do shotguns work well against higher level enemies? I've noticed they're extremely OP against the low level aliens due to the knockback.

Shoot at everything that moves. If it doesn't move, shoot it anyway, it might move later.

It's been a while since I played this version, but as I recall, the shotgun is overpowered against everything.  I think they did a bit of rebalancing in the beta, but there's probably still more to be done.
