    Hmm - to kill Horrigan all I did was stand back and let the turrets take him down. When he'd killed most but not all of them I started shooting with the gauss rifle which turned him from killing them to killing me. A lot of super stimpacks later and he was turret-gunned to death :)

    IIRC, I didn't have much trouble with the end boss, turrets or no turrets. A few burst to head/limbs from a heavy rifle can cause over 250 pt damage, so it can be over in a round or two (first round, if you get a lucky critical).

    It's been years since I have played Fallout 2, though.

    Actually, Wordplay, I think Horrigan has 999 hitpoints (or something very close). Unless of course you use the Mutated Toe on him. In which case he will only have 996 hitpoints. With the turrets and the good sergeant Granite on your side it can still be over in a couple of rounds, though.

    As an alternative to those items mentioned here (for anyone choosing to play in the future): you can destroy the turrets when you enter the complex.

    It is absolutely amazing what a Bozar will do with More Criticals, Better Criticals, Fast Shot, Bonus Ranged Damage and Bonus Rate of Fire. You get two shots with the Bozar each round. Frank was no problem.

    @ henkie: See above. :D

    Although I'm not sure was it bozar which I used. Can you steal it from two guards that stand before the tent of a merchant? It causes some hefty damage in any case. Even if the boss manages to fire a few shots, that's why your buddies are there ;)

    Yes.

    It is actually amazing what I still remember from Fallout 2, seeing as it is at least 3 years since I last played, yet can still clearly remember those guards from that merchant (in the NCR, I believe) having Bozars ready for being swiped from right under their noses for an early (and cheap) big weapon.

    @Alavin: The funniest character for me is always the unassuming well-spoken guy who gets the job done. :D Pretty much the jack of all trades and master of none (except a couple handful ones ;) ) and careful lest he not blow the house up. ;) In the end he always gets the job done... somehow. One way or another. ;)
