You make another golem--but this time, you hatch a plan with Fuse.

Once the golem's in the room, and even slightly lit by the fire that's already present, Fuse lights the golem's bandages on fire.

...Just in time for something, not unlike a tongue, to launch out of the dark and grab your golem. Like a frog, it pulls the golem toward the ceiling and into a gaping mouth.

"Holy shit," Fuse mumbles.

After a brief pause, the monster drops from the ceiling. With its body no longer covering up the lights, you can see it clearly.

Lure it behind the eye.

Heck, we don't even have to kill it. Just get it trapped in the other room. If we can block it in or destroy the doorway, we're golden.

I wonder if the acid walls will start moving again if Fuse and Jane un-solve the puzzles past the vent. Michelle and Caius can stall the monster there and then duck past the right-hand wall just before it seals the door to the first room-- and it can't fit into the vent to get away from squishy acidic doom.
Though hopefully we can take the monster out before having to resort to that. Wonder if it's blood-able.

As soon as it sees the eye, it will snatch it away and the eye will be useless. The eye will need to be ready to fire the moment it has a target.

Shoot the tongue first

Flesh is purple, which makes me think of like; poison or gas, so probably should be careful getting too close. Eyes are also blue, which may mean lasers like our own eye thing. Toss a soda can at it to see how it'll react, get our eye preparing to shoot, and lure it back into the other room.

There's the Super Shambler! I was wondering where the fuck you were. Anyways... tell the eye to get a laser ready 'cause we've got company! Well, that, and tell Michelle to rev up the E1M2. That's also important. Maybe distract it with syringes and FIRE, too. Caius... should get something heavy to throw in its face. Prob'ly.

Charge the eyebeam and aim it at the door. Set the monsters eyes on fire, and rain bullets on them.

Then blast it's torso with the eye laser when it gets close, after we're sure the tongue grabber is dead focus fire on the neck.

For reference, the old one was bright red and dull-looking.
This one appears to be more of a "healthy" purple tint and there's an eye on the cylinder thing which I think is the tongue/mouth we just saw eat the golem.

As always, fire a syringe to see if we can blood it or what anti-air defenses it has. Fuse should try to get the whole thing lit on fire and then get behind Michelle and Caius (along with Jane).
If it's like last time, it'll take a while for that monster to get through the door. Michelle should use that time to try and make the monster's consistency akin to that of swiss cheese with Caius ready with the shield. Once the monster gets in, have our monster eye start shooting the thing. Try to aim for the eyes first.
If we can blind the thing (and it's not dead by then), our next fallback plan will be to lure it to the other acid meat wall and try to pop that to get acid all over it.

As a side note, since we're not fighting the bioprinter monster, I'm assuming the last floor of Bunker X is going to be a true boss-rush where we face the major end chapter monsters one after another (bioprinter monster, spider-Vasquez, Mega Macland, etc.).

I'm glad Leopold ain't here. Seeing a badder version of the thing that nearly killed him would, I imagine, be terrifying.

Light it up and run. Be ready To zap it with the eye if it comes in range. Be ready to blood it and shoot it with bullets while it's distracted if that doesn't work.

Well... on the bright side, it just ate some fire. So that'll probably mess it up a bit. Eyes are priority targets, smell doesn't matter as proven by the soda-golem we sent in. Other than that, well... lazors, explosions, fire, and a sweet extremely sharp bone/keratin/whatever sword slicing it to bits are the only things I got.

Specifically tell Caius not to try going mano-a-mano with this one.
Terrac 11th May 2018, 4:06 AM edit delete reply
We really need to get Caius a good beating stick. He keeps charging into melee anyways, and together with his new riot shield he could give a more efficient pounding if we just gave him a big club to whomp badguys with.

Caius is actually skilled at hand to hand cause he was made for MMA. I'm not sure if he's gonna do better with a stick than with fists.
Verde 11th May 2018, 4:40 AM edit delete reply
Then get him some spiked gauntlets or somethin', he's all the time gettin' his hands messed up.
Heroshima 13th May 2018, 8:34 PM edit delete reply
I'm down for getting him a big hammer to go with his shield. He'll be like Brick from Borderlands 2.

It'd be cool. Maybe we should ask his opinion first.

A bit different than the monsters at the ceiling in Half-Life.
A bit biegger than them too.
Though, not big enough to fit a bioprinter in it I think.
Where's your Super-Soaker-Molotov-Cocktail when you need it?

Luering it to the laser beam eye is a good idea. It took considerable firepower to kill the first one.

"Hi there, shambles! Wanna meet my laser eye?"
ReikoLupus 11th May 2018, 10:02 AM edit delete reply
-Put it in fire and try to Blood it. (It isn't going to work XD)
-Retreat to the room with the Laser-Eye, an Charge it for his arrival. Michelle must be ready to shoot at that thing when it tries to enter the room, priorizing the eyes. And obviously, a bit more of fire XD.
-When he enters the room, retreat to the room with the acidic walls (With Caius and his Shield in the back covering us), and prepare to destroy the Acid-Wall when he enters. And obviously, shower him in fire and bullets XD.

I think it must be dead after all that XD.

Retreat to the room behind the eye, *quickly!* Then laserlaserlaser plus minigun!
fellow 11th May 2018, 11:25 AM edit delete reply
Maybe we could pull something from the red that can brust open one of the acid walls and lure the monster there.
Leafia_Barrett 11th May 2018, 12:45 PM edit delete reply
There it is, folks. Boss battle time! Bring out the big guns and unload!

Laser Eye: Have a beam ready to fire the instant this thing exists in a range that can be shot.
EVERYONE: Get ready to flee to behind the laser eye at any moment. If this thing turns out to be fast, then don't bother with anything below, just flee.
Jane: Show it whatever's inside the cat magazine, being very careful not to look at the contents yourself. If we're lucky, the thing will evaporate or something. If not, oh well, it was worth a try. If nothing happens, shoot a few needles at it, on the off chance it does anything. If the blood enters the creature at all, assuming it doesn't take control, make the blood do as much biological damage to the creature as you can think to do. Pop cells, spread poison, block nerves, anything.
Caius: Chuck a can of soda at it. Remind us to give you a shotgun next time. No repeat performances with the monster tackling - I don't think you'll win this particular matchup. Go try to grab an acid spider and bring it back here without hurting yourself. If this works, chuck the spider at it.
Fuse: Attempt to light the soda can on fire once it's next to or has hit the monster. Once it's been established whether the soda can explode or not, light the monster on fire. Light it on fire again. Light it on fire a third time. Repeat until there aren't any parts left that aren't burning, then once more just for good measure.
Michelle: Activate the bullet hose at it for as long as you safely can. Aim for the stomach-face eye(s) first, then the top eye, then any other eyes that may exist. Then just dump bullets into anything that looks fleshy and vulnerable.

We need a stack of double barrel shotguns to trafe up. Maybe we get Ash's "boomstick" with unlimited ammo of whatever was last loaded into it.
zelly_fangirl 11th May 2018, 1:12 PM edit delete reply

get one of the head spiders from the first room, maybe puncture it if need be and...i dunno, chuck it at the monster?

How about taking the eye off the wall and placing it on one of the vending machines then make a blockade with the vending machine with the eye in front and the xtra machine in the back
