The Scary Killer Arm of Doom is back, and is ready to fight. Face it in its own constructed AI Chamber, an AI made for fighting, ''building itself, out of itself'' - Rattmann. So, enter if you will, but the arm is waiting, don't be SKAoD to fight it...

Known Bugs:

1) Yes, the arm can go through walls. Due to the way its made, that can't be prevented.

2) (Stage 3 Spoiler, don't read unless it glitches here) If the Blade Arm attaches in the wrong spot, just type ''Kill'' or ''Reload'' into the console. That will cause you to respawn in the point of time right after defeating the previous arm, and will usually cause the base to remain in the correct position while the new arm attaches. this is a fairly rare occurence

3) You need BEEmod to see the energy balls correctly.

3) The arm can sometimes drop you inside the collision of other things around it, although this is fairly rare as well.

Hints for N00bz: (Don't use until after trying out the map!)

1st Stage:

Dodge the energy balls.

2nd Stage:
Hide near the oil spill to get the arm to break the white gel pipe with bombs.
Splat gel under the bombs, then portal them through the highest panel at the SKAoD Power Generator.

3rd Stage:
Try not to stop running.
Stand on the panel with the ledge and wait for the saw to break the pipe. After it reaches you, jump off and get back on to break it without being killed.

4th Stage:
Crouch or hide behind the pillar to avoid the spinning energy ball turret.
To end the map, shoot across to the top of the SKAoD Generator and press the button. This will trigger an explosion. To avoid dying from this, take shelter in the entry room and press the end map button near the starting area.

Some time I'm going to make another boss fight with a new concept
riceninjaa Jul 1 @ 10:59am

The stuffing you in the ceiling glitch isn't really preventable. Also if you aren't standing in front of the buttons, you can't press them. To make a boss fight, you basically need a pretty good knowledge of hammer and portal 1/2 elements.try not to make it like the default portal boss fights with glados or wheatley, otherwise it will be too easy, because after you do those fights once through, they become way too easy. Also, make good use of the func_tank, the aiming entity

also could you tell me how you made a boss level?
riceninjaa Jun 29 @ 6:01pm 
Arm keeps stuffing me in the ceiling
Everytime it autosaves I die and when it loads that save progress I die right after
When pressing "e" RIGHT NEXT to the buttons it wont work
so yea... but I still finished it... it was alright

Well I could fix it if you told me what these glitches were.
