Angry Taking care of supergros

So, I'm trying to get into the base on Principal island, and I'm almost inside, but then this horrible supergro comes teleporting in, and if I'm lucky I'll get to hit him once with my ball before I'm trapped in a short cycle of stun animation before I spin around and croak. Is there a magic fighting button I'm missing in this game or something? With most of the enemies, if you're hit even once you can just forget about it. Twinsen is a slow ass ball thrower, that much's for certain.

So tell me, what am I missing?

I'm not exactly sure what part of the game you're in ...but you always have to make sure those supergro's don't see you, 'cause one hit is enough..

So you can't beat them..find another way....like not triggering an alarm or using discreet mode to sneak by...

When the Astronamer says "Be discreet in your quest" he was being very literal.

If it's the supergro you have to fight, then discreet is the way to go, not only because of the 'lob' while in discreet mode.

Ah, I guess I was convinced that the supergro came just to destroy me, but it appears he just starts patrolling. That made the whole thing much easier. Thanks!

Also, the game design decision to make the player cross the mountains through the mutant factory that much was a bad one.

I usually kill the rabbibunny in discreet mode too, so that I won't have to mess up with quickly escaping when the gro shows up.

Toblix, actully you missed a very good function in this game:

when you get hit and stunned, he will walk backwards and u caant move for a sec or something, but while your being stunned, you can press ctrl to be instantly restored.

And in case you have been trying to get through a lot of things in one sceem and is low on health, using a clover usully worth the cost.

actually, walking backwards or switching to an other behavior mode and doing ACTION also helps a lot. Athletic is the best mode to get away with

I wouldn't call that a good function. More like a bug, which is not too far from cheating.

(so what if I use it all the time?)
