Hai, I've been screwing around in these forums for a bit, so I decided to join when I found this delema. I can't kill Burer. I'm running S.T.A.L.K.E.R. OL 2.2 Patch 1.0005. And with OL 2.2, theres no Artefact Activation. Little help please? I've tried googling it... Several times... I got nothing that helped. So, any info would be GREATLY appreciated. -Kyle.:bawl:
you blast the fucker with the most powerfull weapon you have. 300 rounds should do. if not that use explosives or knife the bitch.
He's not easy to kill!
The RPG is quite useful for this. There's one in the attic of the factory you go through to get to the lab with Burer in it and another on the floor of the storeroom that the pseudogiant is in - two of those rockets does a lot of damage, just make sure you aren't in the blast radius :(
Other than that the trick is to duck in and out of cover. If Burer has his hand up near his head then his psychic shield thingy is active so your bullets will just bounce off him. Duck in and out of cover and you'll avoid his psychic attacks and get him to drop his shield - if you can get him into the corner by the burning door he'll run around in circles when you aren't in his line of sight which means you can pop out and shoot him in the back of the head a lot.
even with the shield up bullets still hurt him. i've killed many of them while the shield was up. including that white coat bastard.
300 bullets is still not enough to kill the bastard.
The best way to kill burer is to lure him into a corner so he runs around in circles over and over.
Then throw every single grenade you have into his area and he'll take heavy damage. Then empty your entire ammunition stockpile into him and he'll die....eventually.
I had no problem killing him with a couple mags from an AK on HELL difficulty. Then again i have had a lot of experience fighting dwarves and i know all their lame little tricks.
Such as shooting them from the back where the take much more damage?? I used more than 300 bullets on my FIRST encounter with him........because I didn't know what to do then......
But ofcourse now I can take him down in a couple mags. But for a newbie doing that will be hard.......especially in that confined space.
playing old school doom helps in these situations. 1 on1 are a breeze. now if there were 5 cyberdemons in that room than that would be a party. burer is easy, get over it.
Well, I didn't have to kill Burer in OL 2.2 since something or someone killed it before I went into the lab
1) Make sure that you change your "Bandage" and "Med kit" quick-keys to two much more accessible ones - I have mine on F1 and F2. It sounds dumb, I know, but having those two lifesaving keys with easier access is very, very helpful.
2) In OL 2.2, you do know that you can pretty much go anywhere at anytime in the game? I do not know why you went into x18 with such weak weaponry. I usually run straight to Army Warehouses or Yantar and get myself some serious firepower, cos in OL 2.1 you need it.
The only other bits of advice are more to do with tactics .. try and get old Burer to have problems with his environment. Run around corners, behind objects, anything to make him have a bit of trouble with path finding.
Instead of aiming for the head with shotguns, aim for the chest of NPCs and monsters. Single shot weapons and pistols are great for headshotting, but the spread of a shotgun makes it infinitely more advisable to aim for a larger surface area where 90%+ of the buckshot will hit. With the shotgun head shot, you will be lucky to get 40% of the shot hitting him
Good luck. :)
