still having problems, what you guys are saying are for the wussy difficulties. im on Insane, first time through, anyone beat him on insane?
I just did an hour ago; and I kinda followed what myxomatis said.
When the fight starts, strafe right and try to hit him in the head with the sniper rifle. When you've done that he will come from behind that rock, in your direction.
Then he'll stop at that rock to throw some bars of dynamite at you. You just make sure that; the moment you've hit him for the first time you strafe left again, and you stay behind that rock. Now you have about one chance in.. 7 or so he will stay at that position; if you do things correctly. (read on)
So at this point you adversary is standing at this rock about 30metres in front of you; and you're standing behind this big rock facing him. He has just thrown some bars of dynamite but they didn't reach you. What you do next is you tap your right "look-behind-the-corner-button" so to him your head will appear for a split second. Not enough time for him to take a shot at it and hit. This is VERY important, because should you just stand there he would get bored after a few seconds and start running towards you. You DO NOT want this.
Like I said, you tap that button and he will see your head and this is a reason for him to stand still and try to shoot it. This is THE chance you've been waiting for. Him standing still in a visible place, and you behind shelter just one button away from a clear shot. If you have created this little situation for yourself you should be very proud but you're not home yet.
I already told you that the tapping was very important. Well, keep doing it. Never look behind the corner and aim, never hold that cornerbutton. Just tap it or you'll get another breathing hole in your skull. You can aim a little from behind the rock and then tap to see if your crosshair is on his head. If it is; tap and simultaneously click. This will make your bullet hit him in the head, while keeping yourself safe behind the rock. (The sniper rifle needs a very long reload time after every bullet, so now you start to see why this is so important.)
I think by now you get the picture. Just keep tap+clicking with the sniper rifle pointing at his head. Should you run out of sniperbullets(like I had); DON'T move your mouse, just go over to the regular rifle and you will be shooting as accurate as before.
when you've nailed him for about 3/4 of his life bar, a cutscene starts to play where he decides to use his dynamite to do a little kamikaze show. Run away from him but have fun shooting the heck out of his ass while doing so. Revenge is extra sweet when you see that hated guy's bodyparts get blown to bits against the sides of the rocks around you.This post has been edited by alligate: Feb 28 2006, 01:53 AM
