Crawlers jumping at you
Is there a way to actually dodge them? I can't shoot them mid air (even if I aim right) and jumping backwards doesn't really help. It's like I'm doomed to get hit.

Thanks

Totally, the game shouldn't have been out of beta in my opinion. And I love the lighting effects in this game, finally a game that isn't afraid of being realistic about light and darkness.

Here are 3 helpful tips for combatting crawlers. Good luck clearing the ship commandos...

1. Light hatches the eggs. Equip your shotgun, shine light on the eggs, shoot crawler twice = dead before it can touch you.

2. Get height on the crawlers and shoot them from above. They can't touch you if you're on an elevated platform

3. Run & Gun - Hold right mouse to aim gun + zoom out. Use your pistol or machinegun to shoot the crawler from a safe distance. There is a crouch animation they go through before jumping. Use shift to RUN away from the crawler to DODGE the jump. Then keep shooting from a safe distance.

That's all good but the infuriating thing is the delay between the crawler striking at you, and the FULL ONE SECOND delay that the hit takes to register. Really disappointing game.
Yea, I really think it's a rushed game, but with a great idea behind it. I still have fun every now and then with it.
