How to kill last boss? Want to finish him :)

Postby Guest » Sun Feb 05, 2006 8:22 pm

Hello together!

I am not quite sure how to kill the last boss (rotating alien aboard the ship).

First phase is easy.
But then he has the two protection layers around him which are strong and pop up again after they have been destroyed. I really can just hit him very seldom.

Is there a trick I missed, did I forget to try a special weapon etc?

Please help me out.

The barriers that circle around the boss can be destroyed. Shoot enough of them and you can to attack the baddie.

All bosses enjoy a shower of 12 shotgun shells fired in a rapid burst.
Tends to clean up unnecessary force shields too.

Can I destroy the automatic cannos around the boss? If yes, which weapon would be best?
Thanks so far, guys! :P

Against boss man, drop couple shields with nuke, then fire with railgun from gap. Pop-up turrets can be disabled for brief period of time by making enough damage. Grenade rifle and automatic shotgun are for it. Don't forget electric gun: fire it empty, then unload some other weapons and use electric gun again.

I wouldn't use the E-gun.
It's that much harder to dodge the deathrays when you're carrying it.

One trick that i recall working is an appropriately upgraded grenade launcher.
The cluster grenades did good enough damage against the shields IIRC and didn't consume as much ammo as nukes.

Nuke it. Nuke it again. Nuke it 'til it's dead. Did I remember to say: Nuke it?

Boss was VERY easy.
First you run around him in circles (as every enemy in this game, they fire way too slow) so all bullets will shoot "behind" you. Circle-Strafing was also the easy way to chainsaw the endboss in Doom1 ;)
Disable a bunch of forcefields by railing or e-gunning them, switch to rocket and shoot 3 nukes or 4 (16 ammo needed) at him and he is dead.
I wondered if it was a joke as the "boss" died so easy :(

I actually didn't manage to beat the final boss in difficulty level hard :D However, I must defend myself with saying that unofficial 1.01 decided to turn off all the sounds and musics from Shadowgrounds and gave me sluggish graphics :) Nevertheless, the thing killed me 10 times yesterday :)

I've always said here that there's no challenge in SG, but seems that there starts to be some in the final level of the game in difficulty level setting hard.

I killed it using only the railgun, didnt bother at all with the turret, just circle and shoot like 2 walls on each rows, then when you an opening, shoot that mofo, wash and repeat.

It's easy as pie. Get the wall rebound upgrade thingy on the Railgun and fire in between the shields so they all turn off and then fire at the boss.

I mostly used Electric gun. I upgraded it to secondary fire level and tapped secondary fire button to destroy walls. Then if I had good point I rechraged it to its full power and shot it to the boss. When the point wasn't enough good I used other rapid fire guns against it. And when it used its ray gun I just switched to pistol and rolled away, if I had E-gun in my hand.
