RAAM Trouble? - Gears of War
Demonsbayne here! Having trouble with RAAM? Well allow me to help you on all three difficulties! And yes... on Insane it WILL suck.
Grab a Torque Bow and a longshot and head outside. A fully charged Torque Bow shot will get the Kryll off RAAM, then use the longshot, aim at his ugly head, and fire, you definatly should be able to pull this off without getting killed, especially since it's on casual. If he gets to close, then make a run for the long block on the other cart in from of you, but be carefull of the kryll, there may not be much light, but you should make it if you run.
Still grab the Torque Bow, but now you have a choice. If you are quick at headshots, then still use the longshot, if not, use a lancer. I suggest the lancer for it's fire rate. This time, when RAAM gets to close to you, go to the opposite side of the stacked poles in front of your original cover spot, because chances are you wont be able to reach the other long block without dieing. So wait to heal, then either run for the cover or you could keep at RAAM until he gets to close again, the shift cover. Always be wary of the light, kryll can ruin you on your best moments.
Killing RAAM on insane takes a lot of luck and a lot of dieing. So grab the Torque bow and the lancer, because it doesn't matter how good you are, the longshot will only get you killed faster. Previously all you needed to worry about was RAAm and kryll. But this time the Reavers that Baird and Cole are supposed to be taking care of will likely kill you before RAAM or the kryll ever do. Co-oping RAAM is really the best way to do this, but if you broke your other controller like I did, then you don't have that option. So lets try the glitch. The glitch is fun because sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesnt. Let Dom go off and die as usual. Now it's your turn. There are four small cement blocks on your car. The top left block is your target. Get there before RAAM passes it. He will do one of two things. He will either go around the block and kill you, or he will try to move in front of you and magically get stuck, you'll know when this happens because the kryll wont leave him even if he points at you. So shoot the cart wall behind him, don't shoot him or you'll just blow yourself up, then let loose blindfiring the lancer. If you get lucky you'll repeat this enough times to kill him, if not, the Reavers will kill you. Never count on Dom, he just runs off and dies.
Well good luck, and don't forget to use that Torque Bow, it really does help!
