the term wallpaper.Use it on a room filled with
aliens and see the new red painting on the walls.
/7 - Double pistols (Replaces Expander)-nothing very
new about these. Only a small "matrix style" use
at the begining of the first level.
0 - Detonator (Replaces Freezerthrower)-neatly sending
small fission bombs over the air....
Note: as the RPG was modified the Devastator needed
to be disabled since it is only a high-speed RPG
and would become a meaningless weapon.
New Monsters : The aliens seems to have assimilated the goodies
they found at the EDF weaponary labs. Here are some
Super Trooper - stronger trooper armed with a rail gun
and grenade launcher. Uses blue vest.
New Assault Commander - Rail gun instead of RPG.
Storm Tank - another strange-looking Pigcop vehicle
with rail guns and lots of grenades. A few have BFG
NME - A automated sentry with a scaning laser guide
system. Shoots Detonator Spheres.
The Boss - He may seem tough at first (and invisible
half of the time) but with sharp eyes and a little of
brain you can avoid his attacks.
Although not being "enemies" the laser barriers should
be mencioned. Some are static, some moving. Remember
only that the blue ones will sting you, the red ones
will slice you instantaneously.
