Tailswipe & The Wormhole Trap

Post by Khrowe » Sat Oct 11, 2014 4:17 pm

When playing the Mercenary, I have this habit of dropping my weapons and armor to tailswipe Medium and Small Proteans to death. They do little damage to the unarmored Merc, so no big deal. Unfortunately for me, I have the uncanny habit of finding every wormhole trap. After the first strike against the Protean, I find myself weaponless three levels down. Arriving in a the security room surrounded by several bullet and laser dispensing robots, I meet an untimely end.

So word to the wise, if attempting this tactic, be wary. This is the second or third time this has happened to me, and each time I panic a little. I forgot I had a few grenades, and I maybe, just possibly could have found my way back three levels up. So advice number two, don't panic.

Ha, this has happened to me a few times. One time I exposed the WH trap before tailswiping and couldn't get the message (STOP!!!) from my brain to my hand in time.
