Have finally completed Teleglitch!
Yes! Finally! I have now completed Teleglitch for the first time ever! All I need now, is only two achievements, that's Straight to the core & The Hardcore Survivor

Awesome masterpiece, this game is a gem!

Did you use the knife a lot?

Only at level 1-2 at zombies and small M-1 Mutants, the bigger mutants are not cost-benefitable , a hit from them give like 10 HP off, when M-1 and zombies only give 2 HP damage.

But damn! I took it from level 1 so I got the The Master Survivor achievement also! :D
And I found the secret boss fight at level 3 :D

Nice job! :3
Soon you'll be able to frequently do 1-10 runs and can start to try and get the 'cheivs. Hadrcore survivor is basically just be paranoid 24/7 and spam a far-in checkpoint. Straight to the core you can do by spraying with the minigun, running past the two layers of armor and dropping all your explosives. Last thing i need to do on the game is that acheivement and craft the fabled Cannon! (Which is like impossible because the game only ever gives you two large tubes towards the start and the end so you have to do it from start to finish. Also the one time i found both tubes was the time i forgot a 9mm )

Cangunalations!

Is the Cannon any good against The Core?

In my modest amount of experience, the cannon is excellent against the boss, though probably too slow if you're going for 'straight to the core' in particular.
tpsinnem May 31 @ 6:24am 
'Straight to the core', BTW, is the one cheevo I've yet to win, but in my current run I'm going for it, and I just reached level 8, with a fairly simple plan... but will my 12 canguns be enough against the boss? :-P
tpsinnem May 31 @ 6:32am 
... assuming I make it that far -- sacrificing all those cans and nails and explosives to build those ludicrous stacks of canguns has pretty well wrecked all other parts of my budget, as a result leaving me just scraping by and probably needing some good luck throughout the remaining levels

Update: I got to the boss and then I died.

Congrats on the victory! Now make a railgun and turn on random item generation!

What is the beast way to get the Into the core achievement?
tpsinnem Jun 1 @ 5:36pm 
I did another run after that previous one where I tried a variation on the 'have a teleport, make a hole, and toss explosives into it'.

Specifically, after, I think, around the end of level 6, I started holding on to RDX250s (which actually stack better than RDX500s), with the hopes of being able to bring two full stacks of 5xRDX250 into the last level, which I could convert to 2xRDX500 + 2xRDX500 + 1xRDX500 before the boss room for maximum bang (?). Turns out that by the time I got to the boss room, I had one more RDX500, making that three full stacks of 2xRDX500. I also had teleports, powerlegs, a cannon and a minigun, with a ton of ammo for both. Entering the boss room, I waited for a small moment for the outer layer to slow down a bit so I had a stable target. Then I fired two cannon rounds at the boss, which I think made a small hole, which I widened a bit with the minigun, and then tossed as many explosives into it as I could. Then I ran to 0 health and got teleported, used health and armor as fast as I could, and ran back out hoping the boss was dead. It wasn't. I tossed more explosives into it, finally killing it.

All this cannot have taken a whole lot more than 10 seconds, but more enough than 10 seconds anyhow. I survived and won but didn't get the cheevo.

-----

Next, I think I have a plan that might actually work.

Start with pzfausts. Fire a full stack of regular pzfausts at it, and keep running forward. And then, hopefully as close as possible to the moment that the rockets actually hit, two cannon rounds at the same spot, and keep running forward. Hopefully by that time there's a sizeable hole already, maybe even a hole on the inner layer. Keep running with the minigun gushing bullets at what holes there may be. And once you're close enough, toss a load of explosives.

What explosives, BTW? I wonder if those sketchy nailbombs might actually be the most effective thing here.

The core achievement is the only one left for me, too. Like I said in the pinned patch thread, I'm suspecting the achievement is broken after I beat the boss fairly quickly in my last try and still didn't get it. I probably won't bother with it again until someone verifies that.

BTW, the strategy I used for the boss in that last try was 2 RDXs 500 at the beggining -> Minigun to destroy the weakened outer walls -> 2 more RDXs 500 to weaken the inner walls -> minigun again to finish the boss. All that without dying once and starting from stage 9.

Keep in mind It's always a good idea to save some cannedmeats to buff your health up to 150 before engaging the boss (though I managed to go through my last attempt starting with only 94 health). At least for me, dying and teleporting is way too risky and time-wasting to bother with.

I still have yet to get straight to the core but i am assuming it's bugged.
The only way i can think to confirm this is to bring 2 fully loaded miniguns into the boss room, one crafted one found, Take stims for more damage and then spam them until the boss dies, If this doesn't work i have no idea what could outside of just hacking the game to give the minigun stupidly high piercing and damage and/or making the boss just the computer.
