I just started playing and I can't get past the Catacombs level where there's a big guy who throws uppercuts in front of a fire pit, I tried the shotgun, wood stakes and Painkiller to no avail. I haven't downloaded any patch yet - I'm on a dial up and it's 90 megs :cry:

Any ideas on how to get past him. At this point I've stopped playing cause it's too frustrating...

Thanks :wink:

is this the boss monster or something? I don't remember it, but just google a painkiller walkthrough.

You figure it out? It's not obvious.

Not to brag - but I got it as soon as I read it. Remember, I already tried to kill him for over an hour... I knew there was something I was missing, something to do with that walkway over the pit. As soon as I looked up and saw the star, it clicked. It did take a few tries to get so far to the edge that the light hit him before he hit me. Now that General at the end of that phase is proving to be a bit tougher, I keep getting to the point where he lets the tornado's loose, then I'm screwed :)

Yea, I remember that, it pissed me off for hours too! I kept thinking I had to get him to fall into the lava...it sucked.

I forget what I did about the tornado... was this on that same bad guy or the HUGE ass bad guy afterwards?

Huge ass bad guy... I think he's the first of 4 "generals" you have to kill. It's in a graveyard. I switched to God mode to kill him to see how to do it. I'm not sure how I got past him, but the screen did turn to black/white, like I was in demon mode, and one shot killed him. But I didn't collect any souls, so I have NO idea how I did whatever I did :roll:

SO now I'm trying (again and again) to get past him honestly.

Here's what pisses me off though... Their website and the manual that came with the game give NO assistance on strategy. It's fun to try " kill the bad guys" and test your reflexes and reaction time, but to have to figure out HOW to kill them gets annoying. At least have a "Hint" mode so if you don't have 8 hours a day to devote to the game, you can still progress through it and have fun.

I heard that was a really nice game, i'm going to try and get that, sounds very sweet, but i heard the multiplayer is by far the buggiest mutiplayer game around

I dunno, that bit was easy, the tornado doesn't come to often and you can get out of its way pretty good when it does. Just go head on balls to the wall after him. Hound him from below and pound on his crotch and back. He goes down after awhile. If you need to refill or get health it can be found around the graveyard but the longer you take the harder things get in there.

Actually, I'm at the very end - I think. I'm in HELL and after killing 66 ghost type monsters I go into demon mode and it's me again't a flaming giant demon yet I shoot and shoot and nothing happens to him. What am I missing? My game is NOT patched at all, Version 1.0 - does that make a difference? I've explored the entire area, found lots of ammo and the armor... This is so frustrating...

Sorry, I kind of stopped playing around the time I was halfway through the theater... or maybe it was after that, I dunno. But I don't think I go to the part you're at now. I've been meaning to get back to it but other things got in the way.

You can tell when the Tornado starts, so be in a grave monument that has a roof before it starts, stay there and keep shooting him/it.

Nasty

PS the add on just came out, I am going to buy it, the original game was a hoot!!
