Losing a lerk in one shotgun blast alone from full health literally never happens. The math simply doesn't support it. You've probably taken incidental damage somewhere from random rifle spray or some other nonsense before getting hit with a direct shotgun blast and dying.

As far as I know the lerk has the ability to shoot spikes at the marines with shotguns. If you try to engage in closecombat and therefore die as a lerk, you misjudged the situation or skill of the marine.

Furthermore, a lot of people have already stated that the shotgun cannot kill a lerk with one shot. If you interested in the stats, look up the diskussion forum. You will find similiar threads there.

The only lifeform that can be one-shotted in any way is the Skulk.

A lerk shouldn't be engaging a shot gun close quarters anyway, thats why your spikes exist.

I think you can one shot rail gun a lerk if they have no biomass and no caraspace.

Nope.

kRailgunDamage = 30

Uh, a no biomass, no caraspace Lerk only has 125 HP + 40 armor. A weapons 3 Railgun charged should 1 hit kill it.

Armour is 2 hp per I think, so 40 armour is 80 hp.

Depends on the weapon hitting it. Railgun is normal damage?
Hobocop Nov 23, 2013 @ 8:01pm 
Railgun is explosive damage, so still normal damage vs lifeforms.

There is no "explosive" damage type. I think you mean structual. It does double damage to structures, and normal damage to lifeforms (as in 1 armor worth 2 damage)

kRailgunDamageType = kDamageType.Structural
Hobocop Nov 23, 2013 @ 11:38pm 
Yeah, I attributed it to 'explosive' damage because the grenade launcher has the same damage type.
