How do I take care of a tank? I'm wandering around the city streets right after the bombs were falling and I don't know where to go. Theres an exit, but it won't open. And then theres a tank toolin' around. Do I have to destroy the tank before the exit will open?

If I remember correctly you have to take out the tank, and then tool around in the tank for a little bit taking out those pesky humans.  A few well aimed gut grenades (try the top of the tank, where the turret pivots) and maybe a headbomb should help...

Yeah lob a few grenades at the center of the tank (turret area and so forth) and hit it a few times (something like 3-5) until it stops moving and you can board it. Ride a bit and take out the RPG guys, then a door becomes accessible. I just got up that part and that is where I stopped playing yesterday.

Your bowling head sputum attack is much more powerful than a gut bomb.  Save your head for the tank.  If that doesn't get it, then it will be so weakened a gut bomb will easily finish it off.  Remember your second X key press will set the head bomb off.  Kill everything in the tank.

So difficult to time the head to the tank movement though. I never could get that to work. A good old fashioned gut bomb attacked worked pour moi.

Isn't this a "Stubbs Tactics" thing? Sometimes you can't avoid reading the spoilers fast enough... :huh:

If I'm remembering correctly, I dealt with the tank with a fart.
If I'm not remembering correctly, it's because Stubbs ate my brain.

Before you go anywhere, use your hand to crawl upstairs and wipe the guys out up there.  Then head to the bathroom (chucking gut grenades in the process) in the room on the right side (ground floor) to recharge and regrow your organs, and repeat.

I went upstairs and farted and ate some brains while getting shot up. Then back down and recharged on civilians. Then it was gut bomb the flying guys, run for cover, rinse and repeat. I barely made it on the easy setting (I've only been all the way through once)

If you let the game sit at the opening, some demo scenes play, in one it shows a flying scientist being possessed. That might work here.

You mean a flying barbershop quartet guy that got possessed in the demo scenes.  That would really help.  I've not had any luck possessing one of those.  They always throw my hand off like the guys do that wear helmets.  They SHOW it being done with a BSQ guy so I'm sure it can, it's just how many hands do you feel like wasting?

I've never had a problem posessing a flying guy--I just throw my hand at them and pound the 'E' key until the hand grabs on.  It's also a great one-shot kill: possess someone, drop the hand, move on.

AGH, nekkid man-flesh!!! Posted Image

Don't make me bust out photos of my tattoos!

But now, back to Stubbs. How do you un-possess someone? Hit the E key again?

Yes.  Hit E.   Though you have to eat another brain to possess again.  The hand just drops off and dies as does the possessee.

Now I'm in the room with the guy in the middle surrounded by two layers of shields, and a bunch of barbershop quartet dudes zapping me with their über pistols. Frustrating! Frustrating I say!
