Honest to god words cant describe how these are the absolute worst designed enemies I’ve ever played against in an fps game in my entire life .
It’s like their entire point is to grind the game play to a HALT and make the game as tedious and as unfun and annoying as possible .
I used to say "well only the Militant is bad , the others are ok "
Well now I take that all back. They are all designed to be as annoying as possible with little to no strategy or skill involved .
One constantly shrinks to the size of an ant that is extremely hard to see in all the chaos and runs around at random directions … adds absolutely nothing to the gameplay, adds nothing to strategy or tactics , just becomes extremely small and quick and runs around to make him as annoying and as much of a literal pest as possible
Another shoots a big,slow , looooooooooooooooooong lasting orb that sloooooooooleweely hovers and follows you around. Doesnt sound bad right ? Well what about if that orb touches you or you are anywhere near it when it explodes , its instant death regardless of your build ? So now you have to completely stop what you are doing , ignore everything single other enemy, item , or any semblance of strategy or tactics you have planned , and run away as far as you can and in circles like a headless chicken just to wait it out until the orb is gone…and do it all over again in 5 seconds when another one shows up
Militant … well we all know about this guy that, for whatever reason only Randy Pitchfork would know, turns completely immune every single time you take a pot shot at him. His fire AOE attack , just like the orb attack from the other guy , requires you to drop everything you sre doing to run around like a headless chicken to hide and wait it out . On M4 this is the absolute SINGLE reason why I dont play on M4.
That’s it. Just this one guy. If I run into him on M4 and even on M3 I just quite and restart the game . There is no motive or incentive for me to spend 10 minutes of my life taking pot shots at an exceedingly poorly designed bullet sponge that requires zero strategy or skill to beat other then the ability to withstand pure boredom .
Now let the shills come in and defend all this crap. GBX sure as hell likes to nerf all our builds but seems to think the annointed are just fine and dandy
Their mere existence in their current state is the #1 proof to the rumors that the devs dont even play their own damn game .I mean look how long it took them to realize they were completely immune to cryo for no apparent reason
