What is the easiest way to take out helis when you don't have a rocket launcher?
There isnt on really, your best bet is to peg it, 90% of the time there is an RL near a helicopter encounter. Your best bet tho is to alway have one and never use it on anything other then choppers or tanks.
If you should find yourself facing one without a lancher you can alway hammer away at it with an underslung launcher or if its coming in to land, toss a grenade in when it opens its side doors.
Beware when shooting one above you, falling choppers on fire will give you a headache
QFT. Always keep it stocked with the full 3 rockets too, two for the helicopter and one for poor aiming.
QFT, ive lost count how many times ive just skimmed a rocket off a chopper and had it spaz out trying to track what ive lazered.
Isn't there a sight for the Rocket Launcher?
there is, but they still guide according to what you point it at.
sweet guide. i really want to see what you do for that tank battle mission.
Wouldn't that make it pretty much easy to use?
Not when the helicopter moves and you're being shot at. Not sure if its easier on the easier settings, I've only ever played Crysis on Delta.
it flies over the top of me, with its back to me i let off two rockets that bring it down, it smashes into the ground going up rather nicely with fraps catching the scene brilliantly
i use the 3rd and final rocket to shoot at hte house the alerted kpa are in, the one gets blown out to see whilst the other tries returning fire from within the mangled remains, we exchange ordinance before he dives further into the rubble, switching to strengh i toss a long grenade which catches him wonderfully.
I cross the river and make my way to the boathouse, theres a replacement RL just outside.
found the remains of the chopper, no wonder the kpa were pissed. inside the house i find a kpa who i promptly give a bath before leaving and heading into the trees. damn this map is long, im not even at the halfway point yet.
Im in the forrest, i bi noc the area and find 2 kpa patrolling
theres more then that out here that much im certain of, cloaking i check the map, theres 2 ways into here, through the front door kicking and screaming or playing ninja and taking on the base from behind. theres 3 sniper towers in here and numerous machine gun nests as well as...oh **** it, im going in around the back quietly, im not taking all that crap on.
i tag the two sniper nests at hte entrance and slink off into the trees occasionally stopping to let the suit recharge. theres another sniper tower around the back somewhere but i cant see it from here. onwards i find another 2 man patrol, i tag them and move on, still keeping my eyes open for that sniper tower.
found the tower, i tag it and move on, im not running as even cloaked that makes noise, instead i walk from tree to tree, recharging as i go. this is very tense. As i get closer strickland comes on the horn telling me to get rosenthal out of the complex and to rondevouz with a V-TOL at an extraction point.
im near the back of the base, i binoc around and find 2 machine gun nests blocking the front door. i sneak on, i know i can get to rosenthal without alerting anyone,
i quietly slide on down into the base next to one of the machine gunners and tag another kpa having a smoke, i check the one sniper tower to see if he's still looking outwards, he is. i slip on past and towards the rear entrance to the dig site. im in.
I'm in, and not a shot fired
You've inspired me to run through Crysis again, thank you. I've added Pydon's mod [oooh, pretty] and the usual detail enhancements. Damn, this is one fine game.
Is there any other game that can be made to look so good?
Thanks again for the inspiration
opening the door i slip inside and watch, Rosenthal is chatting to our big korean baddy we'll call him Kim Jong Il as i cant remember his name for the life of my atm
anyway it seems hes a bit pissed at the Dr. for taking his time. theres some scientific bantering which of which ol' Kimmy cuts him off telling him he wants into some "temple" that they've found in the mountins, it appears out good Dr. has discovered the remains of a machine that predates man by several million years which is kinda cool, as i approach the thing the Dr. goes batshit and warns his daugher not to let ol Kimmy enter the so called temple. just as she asks wtf is going on the "thing" our Dr has found goes nuts and the general alarm is sounded.
red means bad, or beef if its an oxo cube.
i come to and find that its all gone x-massy, i shake the ice from my helmet and spot heir doktor who is a bit dead now.
before i can say "hasta la vista" i get Strickland on the horn, i tell him Rosenthal is fubar before being ordered to the evac point....which is the other side of the ****ing map
i leave the dig sight to find its all dark, the front entrance is blocked so i'll have to leave the saw way i came in, i cant imagine the base being empty now that rosenthal is dead and im not fighting my way throught it all. i'll sneak out the same way i came in, the biggest problem i now face is its night and even tho i have NVG's but the battery on them is pretty crap and they're not good for long range sight. i'll have to take this really carefully as to not piss anyone off and get shot.
leaving the base ive got a KPA heading past me on the ridge above, i strengh jump up behind him and take him out, goggles have worn out and i have to let them recharge, im going to have to remember to recharge the goggles at the same time i de cloak to recharge to suit.
pydons natural mod means night time really is night time, its completly pitch black so without the NVG's im blind, i check out the sniper tower on my way back, no one there, looks like most of te KPA have evacuated the site. i better get moving. the KPA are using laser sights which make spotting them much easier.
i see flares in the distance so i scan the are with binocs, nothing to report so i slip back into cloak and stealth my way out of the trees occasionally stopping to recharge before reaching the footpath leading back to the boat house, i can hear footsteps on the hill above me, man this is tense.
i wait and watch, i dont see anything ahead of me so i turn back, laser sights clear as day through the bushes, ****, i dont know if they are coming towards me or leaving the are, i sit in cloak and wait, i see a KPA heading away, shortly after another joins him. i tag them both before quietly leaving the area.
for the record i cant stand using NVG's, the vision on them is **** and the battery is weak, always seems to cut out when i need them the most
found the washing machine, the boat house isnt far.
there are some KPA on an island watching the path, im not sniping them as that would alert them to my presence, instead i sneak past and get to the boat house where im met by 2 kpa, thankfully the chopper remains block the los of the one leaving me to snipe the one quietly, the investigator gets shot as well. i stop to recharge both the suit and NVG's before heading off into the night towards the rice fields.
here he comes.
slipping into the water I gently paddle my way up to the road leading to the rice fields, I stop mid way thinking I've seen a KPA in the night. turned out the be a chicken :/
reaching the road to the rice fields i climb out the water and head inland, i hear a chopper coming. i cloak and watch it hover overhead, its looking for me, i sit still maximizing the suits cloak whilst the NVG's give out on me, whilst they are recharging i watch the chopper only illuminated by the moon head off into the distance. with it gone i head into the rice fields and reach the stone house before taking another breather, i can still hear its rotorblades in the distance. i have a feeling its going to come back to me at which point now would be as good a time as any to take it down.
having tagged it i watch the map, sure enough it starts coming back up stream, im gonna have to kill it. it flies over head whilst i prep the launcher, i want its back to me but instead i opt for a shot in the ribs, 2 hits and its down.
I discard the rocket launcher and retrieve a fresh one from the remains of the stone house before heading west throught the rice field and towards the extraction point. the rice fields are pretty light so I turn off the nvg's and proceed on the road, spashing through water will make noise and i dont want that
i cant beleive your doing this in HC mode keep going very inspiring stuff
not long to go now, Relic is almost over
i spot 3 possibly 4 kpa by the village on the road leading out of the rice fields. I dislike fighting in the dark so i'll jump over the fence into the base and slip past them undetected.
lone kpa covering my approach, hes suspicious of something, a quick rifle butt and he is suspicious of nothing i slip over the wall into the base and on my way through when i spot a green shed that i keep forgetting to raid, in it i nab some ammo and grenades before leaving by the same mountain pass i entered in on
towards the red car and down the road to where i sniped the fuel tank of that moving transport truck earlier.
reaching the junction i steal a jeep and race south, jeeps have working headlights but with fully charged NVG's you dont need them. racing along the road is another jeep coming directly at me,, i go for a kamikaze run but the gunner opens fire on me mid drive and im hit, i manage to bail as the jeeps collide but im injured some more in the blast, i let the suit patch me up as i watch a firefight breakout on the horizon, it seems strickland has decided to invade the island and start a small war. fair play to the man.
without a motor i head on foot towards the extraction point, checking the map im relieved to see im not far from it. the road is quiet so i happily turn off the NVG's and use a flashlight instead.
i see more fireworks going off again in the distance when i spot a flare, i take off the flashlight and bi noc the area, sure enough theres a KPA convoy, a quite a lot of them, I could try slip past but give the range im at + the facy they dont have NVG's its time for some extreme sniping.
135m isnt as extreme as i thought, oh well, the silencer is pretty useless at this range so i take it off, they cant see me in the dark at this range + my NVG's are dying again, so to lighten up the area around my targets i blow the fuel can on the truck, the fire lights them up nicely for sniping.
the fire doesnt last long but gives my NVG's chance to recharge, they have pretty thick armor so i put the SCAR away and rip into them with the FY. with them all down I move in and raid the convoy for ammo and grenades.
time to go off road and past some derelicts huts, i hear a chopper in the distance so i take it slow. the chopper leaves and i arrive at an errie looking graveyard.
theres my ride, however it appears im not alone and im told to clear out the area. but theres nothing here unless...quickly diving behind a wall i bi-noc the area whilst cloaked, sure enough i hear rustling. now i know whats coming up but for those of you who have never played crysis who are reading this now, i wont spoil the surprise.
loving this Gunsmith. Keep it up
still i see nothing, i de cloak and fire several shots into the air, that should alert anyone watching. I drop back into cloak and wait.
the rustling gets louder, they are near me, still i see nothing!
i wait some more...
until i see something that makes my heart stop.
the koreans have nanosuits
i open fire hitting the source of the shadow several hits later and hes down, I duck behind cover as a barrage of fire and a sniper round hits the wall in front of me, they have SMG's and Precision rifles, the SMGs arent a problem but the Precisions will happy be a one hit kill. a grenade is thrown at me so i speed out of there like a muppet, it goes off as i skid to the ground, that sniper hasnt fired at me again, so i cloak and decloak only...to have the NVG's run out of battery, bollocks, i toss a flashbang over the wall hopeing to keep them occupied whilst the NVG's charge. i got a it of charge when one of them comes at me under cloak, his shadow clear as day i open up just as the NVG's give way just when i needed them the most.
i blindly fire at him taking fire as i do, my health system screaming at me to gtfo, i toss a another flashbang before scrabbling away for safety, i got about 10% health and about 15% battery, i think this is it.
the suit patches me up a but and recharges enough for me to slide out of there and attack at another angle, 3 of them still remain and these shits are impossible to kill, they approach me in clear sight, so i open up on the one whilst being fired at in return, most of the rounds hit the wall im hiding behind so i toss a flashbang, amazingly enough they retreat and run with thier backs to me
well **** am i letting an oportunity let me pass i reload, stand up and let rip, one down, two down, the third realises the error of his ways and turns to face me, too late, ive already reloaded a fresh mag (thanks max speed) and took aim; Max Strength suppresses the recoil as i empty the entire mag at the sob, he falls.
if the tanks in recovery were bad then this was just nasty, i felt absolut terror and absolute rage in the fight, thankfully thats the biggest nano-suit fight in all of crysis so im pleased its out of the way.
sticklands on the horn again telling me the V-TOL is on its way and that they are making a full scale invasion of the island. I dump the FY and collect all the precision rifles left by the KPA-nano's before boarding the V-tol, I meet psycho onboard who in jest grieves for prophet.
Note: at the beginning of Relic i said it was possibly the largest level in the game second only to onslaught, having gone through i think its BIGGER then onslaught as just how detailed and complex a level it is.
uploading screens of Assault as I type. slow ass'd connection here is making it difficult but I should have Assault ready and on these boards tonight
I've still yet to go through onslaught, might do that tomorow
