Actualy I prefer running and keep my distance from the flood carriers, I pick them afar with pistol when they re with a mob of floods. I dont really see how can you bee sneaky on this level cause floods are EVERYWHERE.
Thread necromancy...5 months between posts. Jeez.
Anyway, don't ever try to run away while the Flood can still see you, no matter how far away, because chances are you'll be obliterated by the sheer amount of fire they'll put out. Just take a pistol and get some cover, pop your head out every few seconds and take some shots, and duck behind cover again when they start shooting back.
Taking cover isnt very easy cause floods are everywhere, and also they spawn unlimitedly on this level. I only take cover when 343guiltyspark goes to somewhere to open the door for me. The cowardly bastard, could've at least gave some sentinels for backup........
On the Library mission there is a spot where you can hide while 343 opens a door.
I like to jump on top of the carrier flood and blow them with a shotty because then they explode and kill other floods as well.
Wait you can jump on flood carriers? I should try that sometimes! Another tip is to grab overshields whenever you can and use medipacks only when your in yellow.
Yeah, keep note of where medpacks are. If you're only missing one bar and you're still in the blue, don't bother with it until you take some more damage, then go back for it.
Also DO NOT shoot flood carriers when they are like closing in on you , cause you would be wasting ammo and its likely you would take damage from the explosion. Just step away from them and let them explode on their own. I believe there are some rocket launcher wielding floods in this level, grab their their rockets and lauch it whne theres like a mob of floods.
Agreed. Know when to use your ammo. Carrier forms explode when they get close. But if it's too dangerous, as in, they're surrounded by combat forms, don't bother getting close, just pop a few shots from where you are.
Also, try to time it so that the carriers explode close to some combat forms or other enemies. The explosion acts like a grenade and will kill any combat forms too close.
Although this is not on the flood level, remeber to minimize contact with flood on future levels like keyes and two betrayals. Try to make covenant fight with floods, this almost mandatory especialy on legendary.
Well, I don't know about you guys, but that was how I had beaten it. I went slow and it turned out that it was very easy :) But of course, one last tip, destroy the carriers before they get to you!!
