The Evil Within Subcategories
So I manned up having played the first game on survival and realizing that this game's survival is not quite there - boom, first run, nightmare. All is well until I realize that this game has some glaring balance flaws. Namely, you can break it almost completely with Ambush, yet you can upgrade your standard pistol and shotty all day long and they'll still suck balls. The slow time thingy probably breaks it too. But what really [censored] me is the god damned bottle and stealth mechanics. Firstly, when is the bottle ever useful unless you take the cheesy break grab skill? The thing is ridiculously stupid to aim and often won't stun even the basic zombie even with a headshot. Except sometimes it will, so sometimes it's awesome. But not always. Or with any predictability. Also, here I thought I was gonna be cool and avoid predator, instead get Low Profile III. All good, right, bit harder but fair? Cept, well.. one thing. This skill totally screws up the game as zombies literally cannot detect you the second you get ANY cover or move away a bit and crouch, yet they are basically aimbots when you're not. It leads to hilarious but lame situations where you can lead them by running up to them and then ducking behind a car half a meter away just to gank them. Except.. run fast, but not TOO fast because if you're more than half a meter in front of them they'll just lose interest. One particular part had me constantly running back and forth trying to get them to chase me at least half a meter without resetting. It actually makes ambush stuff (that's not the skill itself) PAINFUL as in a group that you're trying to lure to some oil or a water of puddle only a Lament will MAYBE take the bait and that [censored] will stay out of it ANYWAY. Speaking of Laments, MY GOD MAN. As if the [censored] weren't bad enough in that you CANNOT sneak kill them without taking out every other enemy around first (unless you want to get gang-banged, since they scream after your first sneak attack) you cannot even bloody well use the smoke on them to gank them as they'll just start spewing crap and spazzing out like a [censored] anyway. Speaking of [censored], the dog-like dudes. What the hell? There is literally ONE hard counter to those [censored] since you cannot sneak them - axe. Can someone please tell me is there ANY other way to kill these [censored] except having a spare axe OR spending a BUNDLE of ammo? On nightmare, you simply cannot afford to kill these dudes with bullets or harpoons and yet if you're out of axes you're [censored]. They cannot be sneaked there is no particular weakness and even if you shock them the knife will never actually kill them until they snap out of it and rip your face off.
So yeah.. any tips on not completely abusing ambush, finding a proper consistent use of a bottle and dealing with the damned multi-head [censored] without spending all your ammo or axes which are also pretty [censored] limited? And also, if you're out of some cheesy cover/didn't get super-lucky HOW do you kill a bloody Lament without it alerting everyone, other than by using a sniper rifle, which, again, tends to be bloody expensive in Nightmare?
