    I'm pretty sure if you aim it at your desired target (like the barrel) and press B to exit sniper mode, it will continue on like a normal bullet. Really though the best way to get points is to use a charged sniper shot to steer the enemy into the barrel instead.

    I could never get those to work! I still need to get that skill shot, though I did get the nut crack after I kicked a normal enemy backwords and sniper balled him off a cliff.

    I think this is the one game where the sniper rifle isn't my favorite weapon. Not that it's bad, it just doesn't seem as fun as other guns. The parts where you have to use it are kind of tedious.

    Pistol though? All over that one.

    See I loved the sniper sections, my only problem with it was that points scoring during those sections went down because outside of a headjob or premie it was harder to get a good cha ching. Also bullet locking is weird, like you'd lose communication with it right in front of an enemie and miss. This is especially sucky for the alt fire.

    Yeah, I understand they couldn't just let you drive a bullet all over the place, but having it disappear inches from a dude standing right next to the guy I was aiming for is irritating.

    I guess I'm judging it from a "I'd rather be sliding and shooting and leashing" perspective. It would be cool in other games but in this one it just feels slow.

    The bullet never disappears, it just goes back to normal speed after you run out of control time. You can use this to hit some nice Bluff shots, or barrels

    The last skillshot I got was the one for decapitating an enemy with the flail as it wraps around an object. Most of the others were fairly straightforward, especially since starting an Echo gives you full charge ammo in your selected weapons. The one for hitting two airborne enemies with one cannonball was a bit touchy though :?

    Yeah echo's are great for picking up tough skill shots. Though stomach pump is probably one of the grosser named skill shots for what you do.

    I kind of wish they'd do a "design a weapon" contest for a DLC pack. I would either submit the rocket propelled chainsaw or the nailgun I have dubbed the Coffin Sealer. It normally fires a single railroad spike, charge shot fires 6 spikes that spread out and then converge on the original target. Skillshots would include:
    Seamstress: headshot an enemy
    Odysseus: headshot 2 or more enemies with one spike
    Prince Albert: spike an enemy in the junk
    Group Hug: Charged; kill 3 or more enemies with the nail hail.
    Cenobite (alternately Cranial Accessories): Charged; headshot one enemy with at least 3 of the spikes

    I think the issue I had with the sniper rifle was that I liked the sections that needed it but I hated having to haul the thing afterward. I really wish they'd just let you roll with all weapons at once and switch at will for some of the Echos at least.

    For the life of me, I can't get the skillshot where you knock a baddie into the Electro Flies cluster. I can't seem to angle kicks. Just kicking levels the camera. To be fair, I don't think Grayson can kick directly above his head...

    I can. I've got mad stretchy legs. My feet uppercut. My military friends see me stretch and they're like WTF.

    Right after Ishi gets eaten by the plant, to the right when you exit the building is a group of flies that's perfect for knocking guys into.

    Load up echo 3 (maybe 4)... the one that starts on a rocky hill, right before you get to a town. After you slide down the hill into the town, there is a swarm over some water. Leash an enemy from the other side and they should go right into the swarm. If you miss the first two guys, you might need to shoot the next enemy in the leg (too fast to leash).

    Mercy isn't too bad, the enemies can generally take enough abuse for one of your carbine's rounds to find dick. Rear Entry however, I didn't get until the very last level of the campaign.

    Not to derail this thread, but I'm kind of on the fence with getting Bulletstorm. I absolutely love People Can Fly's Painkiller; how does Bulletstorm compare? I've been on a binge of old-school styled shooters lately.

    It runs mostly just like other UE3 games do, sometimes I get strange frame drops though.

    Bulletstorm is an amazing game though, assuming you're in it for the points and killing people with interesting weapons. If you're looking for an amazing, emotional and dramatic co-op shooter, you're in the wrong thread.

    Is co-op poorly done? Usually that's one of my favorite things to do in popcorn shooters.

    I haven't actually played co-op, but it sounds like it's pretty fun if you can get a team who knows how to actually get skillshots. Just keep in mind it's more like an arena mode than playing the story with your buddy.

    Yeah, but those are ones you get automatically. Like the slide kick or whatever. But you weren't stopping to actually get a bunch of combo points, thumper, flare gun, etc. You were running to the final goal post in the game.

    This is from ages back in the thread so I apologize, but you DO realize if you pull off a ton of skillpoint combos you are - inherently - killing things better/faster so getting through it faster. Most of the enemies I killed were with skill point combos with weapons. You do need a bit of a "meta" setup to do this, but it's well worth it and you get tons of points. I used the flailgun, thumper and rifle (PMC) for that. Got tons of different skillshots and similar and made it to the end.

    As for me, I loved this game and it had an absolutely hilarious battle towards the start (the theme park). The ending part felt like it really dragged though I have to be honest, but other than that I would gladly play more. MORE I TELL YOU.

    Man, this game on Nightmare difficulty is harsh. Topless + Pump Action + Vertigo isn't even enough points to recoup the cost of the shotgun shell needed to do it! Forget about using the Thumper on anything less than 4 guys in an enclosed space. What do you want from me, Bulletstorm!?

    I just finished this on the hardest difficulty last night. Once you get to the "burnouts" portions, points rack up like whoa. Some of the setups you can do on those guys are awesome.

    Especially when you get the Penetrator. That weapon is a point machine.

    Getting to that part takes a bit though. I never really saved points for too many weapon upgrades. I made sure I used the leash and environment for as many kills as possible to save ammo. Really just tried to perform each skillshot once and then move on.

    I also capped off most of the echo's. I like that Echo mode is as much as puzzle as anything else.

    I rented this game few a days ago and just finished it last night. I have to say... that this was one of the most enjoyable games I've ever played. I game that is not "Serious business" I game where I can yank a man towards me, kick him back away from me, and then blow his torso off with a shotgun, I game where I can wrap a chain-grenade around one guy, kick him into a group of other guys, and blow them all up.


    There is no way for this not to sound weird, but Bulletstorm has brought the fun back to killing.

    Honestly, this was the first FPS that I've really enjoyed the single player campaign of in a long ass time. Most FPSs these days are so focused on their multiplayer content that single player takes a back seat, and that sucks. Bulletstorm manages to stay fun during single player.

    I think this is largely because the dialogue being so entertaining. It's surely juvenile, but I'll be damned if it I didn't laugh my ass off at lines like:
    "I named him Waggleton P. Tallylicker" and "Here comes Butterdick Jones and his Heavenly Asshole Machine
    .

    The combat was pretty fun too.
