The dreaded Revenant of Doom 2 is downright the worst enemy, not because they are overpowered, but because it is a huge, screeching skeleton that punches you when you get close. You can hear his bones clicking together. This is how i view cataclysms skeletons, and that is why i kill them with extreme prejudice.
Ahh yes the Revenant in Doom. I haven’t played Doom 2 yet, I played Doom 3 though. Not sure if the Revenant in 3 is harder or easier, but they are quite nasty nonetheless. Shoot guided rocket from 2 cannons mounted on the shoulder, those things are hard to dodge in the open, and then once you managed to get in their face – “haha nope we got strong claw attacks too”
well seeing as CDDA doesn’t seem to really be based on Romero lore(various mutant zombies, bites don’t spread the disease, etc.) it doesn’t really matter if there are fast zombies or not.
but i do agree, skeletons don’t make much sense. what’s keeping them animated, if they have nothing to animate? if it’s some kind of “magic” then shouldn’t they be unkillable with normal weapons a la Return of the Living Dead?
The Revenant isn’t that hard because of its relatively low health. Really, a plasma rifle should clear them up just fine.
On the topic of the thread, THESE skeletons aren’t so hard, either. I keep a shotgun handy for them, or on the off chance I couldn’t get one, just clench my teeth through the damage and beat them to death.
[quote=“TheGrifter, post:13, topic:4464”]Also, cut zombie dogs, or add other zombie animals. Fast zombies are against Romero lore so I understand, but it’s a real drag, and unbalanced. Lower their speed. They’re DEAD. Rigor-friggin-mortis.
and zombie dogs ought to be revised into something non-gamebreaking.[/quote]
I think they should be as fast as the player, or a little bit faster, not the absurd values we have now
[quote=“deadmerits, post:10, topic:4464”]On a recently downloaded experimental, I had the regular, monsters nearby continue butchering? message. After hitting Y it then said, Skeleton spotted, stop butchering?
Did that arise from this thread, specifying skeletons?[/quote]
No, that just means a new monster came into view. You get this all the time if you are reading and there is a dog running around outside your window.
