    Glitch beam?

    You need all the beams to do it I'm fairly certain, and it's not a matter of damaging her, her hyper beam does a set amount of damage (something like 390) requiring 3 tanks to survive the battle, period.

    This is correct. It *should* have been coded to deal damage until you hit 49 health. Sadly, it wasn't.

    Two of the beams (plasma and wave, I want to say) normally can't be equipped at the same time, if you do some shenanigans, you can manage it, but firing it causes the game to shit itself, leading to such things as the game deciding it's time for you to evacuate the exploding planet.

    Good old time beam (that's its official name btw,)as it lets you reset the game completely in a certain spot, you can have EH1 Missles/Super Missles/PowerBombs and 90+ etanks

    Aaaagh. FUCK Prototype's last boss. I don't even have the whippy-grab to snatch choppers and kill him with them.

    System Shock 2 - fairly sure I completed an OSA only run, including no wrench.

    Something I've been pondering for a while, there's all these OSA only runs and shit, how feasible is a no-upgrades run? No spending cybermodules, no OS upgrades, etc. Labassistant implant gets you the toxin-A, can't think of anything else that required spending points aside from sanity.

    I want to say that the LabAssistant only gives you an extra point if you already have one. I'm not sure.

    Oh! Getting the Sympathetic Resonator requires hack, I'm pretty sure.

    Might be a few similar things. It'd just be painful by the end, mainly.

    Labassistant works if you have no points, there's several ICE picks by the time you need the resonator.

    Coolness. I will start one and let you know how it goes. Any other restrictions? :)

    I've always wanted to do a complete stealth Splinter Cell run but I just don't have the patient.

    Besides, throwing guys down elevator shafts is just too much fun

    One's dignity may be assaulted, vandalized and cruelly mocked, but cannot be taken away unless it is surrendered.

    Booya, my Prototype basic run is complete. Which means it's time for the supersoldier run! :D Anyone wanna join me?

    The rules are as follows:
    -When you first consume the military chap at the beginning, you must enter disguise form.

    -You must not ever LEAVE disguise form for the rest of the game, unless the game does it for you, in which case, immediately re-enter disguise form.

    -Consumption of civilians is forbidden. You will get your Nice Guy achievement here if you haven't already, I assure you.

    -All powers, upgrades, etc. that can be done in disguise form are allowed. This includes devastators, sensory powers, weapons, all of it. But you must remain a soldier, not Mercer.

    Possible allowed 'cheats':

    -The consumption of military personnel, and infected.

    -Actions in the military bases 'not counting', as long as you look the same when you leave as you do when you walked in. This allows for acquiring the various upgrades(airstrike, weapons, etc.) held within.

    -This is the big one: Use of offensive powers can be permitted while also in armored form. I'm not gonna lie to you, this'll help a LOT on bosses.


    Since this is my first attempt at it, I'm going to allow myself all the 'cheats'. What about you fine folks?
