1. Do a double tap so you can do the roll thing frank does, get close enough to him and hit him with katana/sword/lead pipe and just keep rolling so his shots dont hurt you.
2. get sniper rifle from the dad and two kids mission, then go to store owner and as soon as his scene is over run outside kill the zombies out there. open both doors and stand next to the wall right before the entrance and use it as cover. Then snipe him till hes dead.
The clown is fucking hard but always does the same moves. I have killed him with sniper gun, shotgun and the katana.. just have to figure out his attack routine.
Alright I'm still having real difficulty defeating the bad design of the gunshop boss. Even with these ghetto-rig methods. It seems to rely more on quick reflexes and vision than skill or strategy. I have a ton of skill at games, but I can't use it here because it lies in figuring out the groove of a well designed boss battle and then creatively using the environment, striking erratically at just the right time, staying in rythm to dodge, etc... like the high quality battles games had for a long time. These battles are not the same thing and seem to rely on a more gritty kind of skill. Some insight would be appreciated so I can get past this and get those cannons.
1. I find that playing out differently. It seems you have to roll exactly a split-second before he fires so that you're invincible at the exact right moment. No time to study wether he's telegraphing his shots since he's firing them so rapidly. When you get to him by luck or razor sharp timing, you're usually buckshotted that instant. If not, you're picked up and thrown as you raise your arms to swing. How are you managing to get different results?
2. This is just not having results. You're saying stand behind cover, then step out and snipe him when he's between the doorways, right? Well, as soon as he's in an area where you can shoot HIM, and you step out, he can shoot YOU too, and he does. Literally the instant you step out and take aim he's taking aim too. Within 2 seconds of the time you step out, he shoots you. Even if he was drinking when you take aim. Wait for him to start drinking, instantly step out + aim, 2 seconds, pow you're shot. It takes me about 3-5 seconds to aim, let alone zoom in.
Is there any hope to beat this with more comfortable, less twitchy methods?
If there is please feel free to shed some light on it and compliment the game
Another battle that is driving me nuts with its incompleteness is that motorcycle battle. How are you expected to smack that ho when she won't even stay on the screen? I could try to lure her with stupid-bitch food then hit her with a pipe, but the store doesn't have any. Thanks in advance.
