>Enemy has no practical crowd control>Still effectively stuns you by body blocking your movements.
>>637582652>enemy has big dodgeable looking moves>has fake ass lingering hitboxes that don't adhere to the model, particle effects due to being disjointed and oversized and lack directionality, allowing you to be hit retroactively after dodging an attack or having never actually been in the way of it to begin with>the devs could have chosen to make the vague geometric shapes that determine your getting hit adhere more closely to the visuals and deliberately chose not to, disconnecting both you and their nebulous intent from visual gameplay, because clearly you shouldn't try to not be hit by not getting hitgod I fucking hate your overhead slam Bloodletting Beast, I don't CARE that it can be trivially backdodged from the front I want to BREAK YOUR LEGS and can FUCKING SEE ME NOT BEING HIT BETWEEN YOUR LEGS OR EVEN TOUCHED BY YOUR STUPID LITTLE HEAD, YOUR ARMS ARE PANCAKING THE FLOOR OVER THERE NOT HERE I'M NOT BEING HIT SUCK MY DICKand fuck you too Watchdog, your neck isn't your mouth, you're biting in the opposite direction of me, fuck you, if Hackazaki wanted me to be hit standing in these places he should've made sure there was verisimilitude in my being hit or given you a different move to protect that position (and bloodletting beast HAS stomps for this already so ???)

>>637579181>>637580350>the two idol'd mindflayers in P-2
>>637596250you mean like instagib?
>Enemy has a shield that only takes significant damage from a specific weapon type that fires actual projectiles with travel time and likes to hop back and forth between cover, dodge roll out of the way, can kill you instantly in melee range, and, despite using the same weapons as you, has its projectile speed at least double yours which do substantially more damage than your own>Or you can just punch them in the back
>>637596603hitscan is like the opposite of a projectile. You pull the trigger and whatever is in the crosshair takes the hit instantaneously as opposed to sending a projectile from the player to the target.
>>637574565>enemy is so miniscule and fast that its actual hitbox is practically a crumb dancing around on your screen and grazing the hitbox causes minimal damage>enemy causes bleeding to stack up with every attack, can quickly destroy your armor if you allow it to attack several times>enemy is also generally found in swarms>in these swarms, each enemy consists of gigantic collisionboxes so they don't stack up on each other for easy kills but instead push each other out of the way while you try to aim at one>said enemies also spawn in swarms from the bodies of extremely tanky host enemiesVery few people will know this exact, specific pain. The host enemies they spawn from are an even worse design
>>637574565>Small obnoxious enemy who is nearly helpless when caught on its own, but exists solely to supply obscene buffs to bigger and stronger enemiesBonus points if it outright makes its allies invincible, so you can't even git gud your way through the buffs, you just have to beeline them down.
>>637596813you mean, vidoe games actually simulate a projectile path instead of just giving you a percentage to hit? i don't believe you
>>637596972I instantly pop sprint the moment i hear their mating call.

>>637597006I don't think you are understanding. Maybe it's how I put it.youtube.com
>>637594260>>637595383There is probably not a single enemy i've ever hated more than these fuckers. They should have atleast made them able to be staggered if they're gonna be that fast.
>>637594550no physical projectile, no travel time. When the enemy decides it's going to attack you, it happens immediately
>>637591659These guys on GMGoW from recent memory. Fucked me longer and harder than any Fromsoft fight. Serves me right for playing an unbalanced mode on a garbage shit design game, but I got it for free and fuck if I'm getting filtered by nuGoW of all things. Must have taken me over fifty tries.
>>637591659the one that comes to mind is the handymen in Bioshock Infinite>tanky>hits like a truck>fast>spastically jump around>when it gets close to you the screen starts shaking heavily making it very hard to aim properlyalso special mention to the Drakekeepers from the Dragon Shrine in Dark Souls 2, in particular, the ones wielding great hammers, they attack stupidly fast and theres practically no window of opportunity to hit them back if you dont have ranged weapons
>>637597278so, what's wrong with hitscan then?
>enemy can only be killed with enviromental traps.>barely enough traps, missing one is practically game over
>>637596776actually, kinda good. Just make sure that the enemy is even more dangerous in close range, to make it high risk-high reward option.
>>637597735It's basically dealing with aimbot snipers unless the devs specifically made them have high spread weapons or slow reaction speeds.
>>637591659The "Spawn" monster from Quake 1>Bouncing all over the place so its dificult to kill>Explodes on death>FAST>Weak attack but follows you everyone and doesn't stop>Even worst underwater>Has a chance to be IMMORTAL>Always more than one if it appearsAt least its a very rare enemy
>>637591724amazing how everyone recognizes the Shrine of Amanafor me, is that asshole Peculiar Kindalur, flanked by by a priestess, fun
>>637597735Any game that uses a hitscan system will also incorporate a "handicap" that stops the machine from hitting you with perfect accuracy. Because that wouldn't be fun.If you have ever played a game like counter strike and encountered a "aim-bot" that's what that is. It is a piece of software that enables the player to read other players movements and hit them without any handicaps. AI enemies need that handicap but some games are far less lenient than others and it makes for a jarring and un-fun experience.
>Small, fast, monkey-like enemy that shoots you from a distance, can climb any surface, and one-shot kills you if it hits you>travels in packs of at least 8How do you win?How do you win?

>game introduces extremely fun melee mechanic for the first time>immediately throws you into a cluttered city environment full of one hit kill snipers>death animation is a slow motion 360 view of your character gradually being vaporized
>>637598361so hitscan isn't even the problem. or more like, hitscan is the new word used for aim botting?
>>637598634not a blue milk run after all
>>637598641You are completely misunderstanding and no.
>>637598705let's stop talking about hitscan then.
>>637574565>enemy starts attacking your MPor worse>ENEMY CAN STEAL LEVELS
>>637575029>game lets you inflict status effects>you can only use them against trash mobs that die in one or two hits>any enemy it would actually be useful against is immune
>>637584502>Boss heals to full ,mid fight>your character complains about this>boss calls out your hipocrisy, pointing to Our healing move and PC relentsMGQ was absolute kino front to back
>That fucking Castle Crashers forestIt's fine, it's not Ilke I wanted to move anyway
>>637598361Halo takes a fun approach to solving this issue by simply allowing the humans and the player to primarily use hitscan weapons (AR, SMG) whilst relegating the enemies to projectile based weapons (plasma rifle, needler). The real fun starts when you encounter the flood who also use hitscan weapons however they are coded to fire no more than a few shots at a time. You're real problem starts when you have covenant enemies with hit scan.
>extremely fast and difficult to predict enemy that does insane damage>completely trivialized by, of all things, healing spells which deal massive damage from range

>>637586363>get 20 rabbit feet>kill rabbitmfw only get one rabbit foot.
>>637598641hitscan is any ranged attack that has no travel timeif youve ever played doom, is the difference between a zombie human firing his gun and an imp throwing a fireballwith the zombie, it doesnt matter how far you are or if you move or not, once he fires his gun, you either get hit or he misses, thats itmeanwhile an imp fireball flies through the air, if you move around, you can evade it, so keeping your distance is actually an advantagehitscan isnt inherently bad as long as the game is well balanced around it, usually bullet sponge hitscan enemies are bad because they take longer to kill, so they have more opportunities to fire their gun, which as stated before, you cannot evadea prime example is the chaingunner in Doom 2, he fires a chaingun rapidly, so he has a good chance to hit you, he also has a good deal of health, so he has more opportunities to firebadly placed chaingunner can make Doom 2 levels awful

>>637599056What the fuck was their problem?
>>637588673Not platforming but in crystal chronicles an early boss self destructs at like 1/3 health. You either gotta run for it, perfect parry the explosion or be the race that turns intangible while blocking. Absolute bullshit and i love it>>637589139I think it was WET that had several hardmodes with the enemies doing more damage and having more health than the one before. Until you get to golden bullets mode. >Everything has 1 hp. Good luckWas the description if i remember correctly
>>637576176>If I everPhew. You had me worried there for sec
>>637582652>you can parry a boss's attacks>they get stunned if you parry an entire sequence of attacks>the first parry gives you too many iframes to parry the rest of the sequence
>>637599152technically not a teleport, but it is in practice, the swap toads in legend of grimrock 2they can steal your weapons with their tongue, and can jump high into the air, landing either left or right from your current positionthey have a very unique behaviour, but its predictable and they are very slow, as long as you are aware of your surroundings, you should be able to run circles around em
>>637599648It's all down to how well the coders can handicap it without it feeling too easy. Because keep in mind, with no handicap the enemy can magdump any hitscan weapon from any range at any time at any part of you and you WILL die. It's not inherently a bad thing.
>>637581075>Enemy steals from you one turn and if not slain immediately runs away with your loot.

>>637600290>enemy is the fastest in the game
Enemy is fas
>>637597637What the fuck? Does the game really look like that? It looks awful.
>>637599956>1 sniper headshot>2 sniper headshots>3 sniper headshotsJUST FUCKING DIE
>>637600883Believe it or not, in halo 3 the elite player models in multiplayer had no hurtbox inside their neck. You could hit them and watch the bullet pass straight through.
>>637599648>I don't get the problem with the player being unavoidably damaged at any time from any rangeYou should be a western game dev
>>637574565>RPG that forces you to really think about elemental buffs/resistances/damage and status effects>every boss is immune to all of it, reducing them to a boring, tedious game of whittling them down with normal attacks
>none of the enemies have voice lines or any audio cues>they're just dead silent husks that shoot you >even the slow suicide bomber enemies just quietly levitate towards youPlaying Control put me to sleep with how lifeless the combat was. It really made me appreciate enemies with personality and sound design in shooters more. What an awful game that was.
>Enemy is sitting inside his blue bubble>Cant be hurt until you use the blue attack>blue attack is otherwise useless
>>637574565>trash mob that if hits you downgrades your stats
>fast-paced action game with rewarding combos and quick reactions for enemies>introduces a shield enemy>all pacing when the appear grinds to a halt as you have to perform some specific esoteric combination of attacks to remove their shield and attack them>the entire time they are without shield they scurry around at 2.5x speed to pick their shield back upI am so fucking SICK and TIRED of this bullshit.
>>637598634I noclip through Nar Shadda and have zero regrets over it. I beat that bullshit as a kid, I have zero patience for it as an adult.
> be me>play on a pixelmon server>server has an EV training roomNeat> go to train HP>the trainer for HP has 6 pokemon that are level 1, have a focus sash and the move destiny bondevery one of those fuckers tank my first hit, use the "if i die, you die" move and i cant train my shit this way. Called the mod responsible a faggot and got banned
>>637601584>Suicide enemy screams while it runs at you>You can hear its feet pounding the earth>Panic sets in
>>637596776Halo does difficulty right in literally every game except for the second. It's incredible really.>Halo 2 AI has inhuman reaction times>they fire faster than it's physically possible to>they have perfect accuracy regardless of distanceFucking cancer
>>637574565>Smaller and way faster version of a normal enemy>Hits just as hard and is also just as tough>Spastically moves around you when you're trying to kill it>Knocks you around whenever you get hitWhich enemy am I talking about?
>enemy can duplicate>enemy has RIDICULOUS counter-attack damage>enemy can only be properly dispatched with one type of attackPre-patch, these fuckers were the worst.
>>637601206nigga, its you who doesn't get what hitscan is
>>637601826>AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHI love serious sam
>>637600883The Ultras with their FUCKING CONCUSSION RIFLES were the worst>when you use it, it might as well be a wet fart>when the enemy uses it, it nukes vehicles, OHKs allies and kills the player in 2 hitsFucking absolute bullshit
>>637582652fucking insurrectionists in ultrakill, the only attack of theirs that feels consistent to parry is the high jump rock throw
>boss fight is an ordeal>die 3 times >look it up, because I must be doing it wrong>it's just a skill issue
>>637601815You did the right thing, user.
>>637601584Good sound design is a slept on art and many games would be unfettered dogshit without their sound design being as good as it is.
>>637602090>Impacts anywhere near you>Tosses you around like a ragdoll and completely covers the screen
>>637602275It's honestly quite impressive how good sound design can even carry an otherwise dogshit game. Darktide is a recent example that comes to mind.
>>637602252>boss has two phases>first phase is piss easy>second phase is ball crushingly hard>if you die you have to not only fight the first phase again, but you have to watch TWO completely separate unskippable cutscenes before fighting the second phase again>finally defeat the big bad boss>1XP
>>637602275The mental imagery of someone trying to put shackles around a pile of dogshit gave me a chuckle.
>>637601584You also forgot how all the enemies have the same color scheme and most of them have the same basic humanoid shape. It's legitimately baffling how bad the visual variety of enemies is in Control.
>>637602413Darktide is a good game buried under a mountain of dumbass decisions and technical problems. It fucking sucks man. You can tell they poured their love for Warhammer into that game, only to blunder at the finish line.
>>637591659Absolute Virtue. Back when it was still literally impossible to beat. More like Absolute Bullshit.
>>637591659I hated these things so muchHOLD STILL YOU STUPID NIGGER
>>637591659GET FUCKING DOWN!
>>637602252>boss fight is an ordeal
>>637591659I know it's a meme answer, but unironically Halo 2 sniper Jackals. It makes playing Legendary a fucking chore even more than it already is because they not only spawn in insanely large groups, but they have perfect accuracy, kill in a single hit and have insane reaction times to the point where you die the literal nanosecond you round a corner.There are even more bullshit enemies I could list but these niggers are a start
>>637602663It really is a shame. It'll go like Vermintide with any luck and be the next best co-op shooter available in a year or two.
>>637602057>approaching a hill that blocks your visibility>[muffled aaaaaa in the distance]>climbing hill>[aaaaaa intensifies]>crest the hill and look down>there's like a hundred of them streaming at youAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
>>637602663>only to blunder at the finish line.Blundered way before the finish line. There is a supreme lack of content even so many months into the release. Reeks of unfinished slop.
>beat Boss in fight>he survives and flees despite having zero health>have to fight him two more times>you cant heal between any of these fightsI love FTL but fuck the flagship, pure RNG whether you win in the end or not
>>637574565>generic robot enemy>not satisfying to shoot>takes forever to finally explode>a minor annoyance at best>copy-pasted a hundred times to pad the game>its mere inclusion makes combat worse
>>637602057Give him a hug
>>637601395Pretty much divinity original sin 2.
>>637583359I swear I've read a creepypasta like this before, what is this from?
>>637602494>Boss has three phases>First phase is ball crushingly hard>Second phase is ball crushingly hard>Third phase is ball crushingly hard>Need to grind your way through them for hours just to become consistent enough to get practice time for the third phase, not even considering a full fightThis is why I fucking, FUCKING hate multiple phase boss battles. Just make three fucking fights, you clearly want to. Why should I waste my god damn time basically fighting the same bosses over and over until I get a chance to fight the REAL boss?
>enemies randomly double in health a little more than halfway through the gameThanks Bioshock
>>637603338Sounds like the counterstrike bot creepypasta.
>boss literally ignore game mechanics>cant be stunlocked like normal opponents>has unblockable, undodgeable moves>all of his moves hit like a fucking truck>if playing campaign, have to beat him with a character you may be shit withFuck this cheating nigger
>Beat boss>cutscene plays, boss is not injured in the slightest and your character is wounded and gasping for air despite ending the fight on nearly full health>boss escapes> Boss actually gets ripped in half when he tries to escape at the last second by your character
>>637603359>shield enemy>get it down to 20% health>shieldwalls>healsI swear to God, the people responsible for that kind of enemy deserve to be dragged out into the street and publicly flogged.
>>637603709>Time to SPLIT
>is the best designed enemy in your path
>>637591659Could be alot of things but what pops into my head are payday 2 snipers. Not only are they unique in that they ignore armor gating so on higher difficulties they can oneshot even anarchists but sometimes they just insta fuckin shoot you as soon as you leave cover giving no counterplay. Not to mention the fucks can have spawns super far away and near impossible to hit.
>>637575681Ghostwire Tokyo had the swimming cunts. Holy fuck I hated that shit.
>Enemy has damage that scales with the games performance
>>637603991Didnt DaS2 do this?
>>637604041You got it in 1
>Enemy spawns behind wall>spams bullshit explosive fireballs that phase through walls and linger around for several seconds>even fires from far offscreen>immediately teleports to a new spot the quarter-second after you damage it
>>637604084>attacks can hit through "thin" walls>no visible damage to said walls after attackHate this shit
>>637602612>>637591659Speaking of darkest dungeonIm currently playing the black reliquary mod, which is overall great, but holy shit, some encounters are pure bullshitTheres a faction of enemies called " kvarotz " which spawn at low light. Part of their gimmick is that they can eat bodies to cause devastating attacks or buffs. Which creates the following situation>2x small vase looking enemy>tiny fuckers that will deal 25 stress almost every turn if not killed asapspawning alongside a>giraffe looking enemy>generic and not strong, but if it eats a body, it gains a large heal and in the next turn it hits your whole party with a fuckoff aoe explosion for high damage, high crit chance, huge stress, and un-ripostable>builder enemy>generally spams attack that disrupts your party formation>if it eats a body, it can spawn either a shitty skeleton or an exploding head>>the exploding head has super high speed and dodge>>first turn is a single target low damage + stress move, and second turn is a huge self aoe fuckoff explosion for high damage, crit and stress>>>IT SPAWNS A BODY WHEN KILLED>>>INCLUDING BY SELF DESTRUCTION>>>NOTHING STOPS IT FROM HAPPENING SEVERAL TIMES OVERSo you have the following options.>try to kill them slowly with blight (theyre immune to bleed), youre going to be slow for both killing the giraffe / builder (due to their high hp) or the stress spam vases (due to their high dodge and difficulty not to accidentally kill them) which may make you eat too many stress attacks>try to attack the enemies directly with blight finishing them off, which is unreliable because of severily rng damage>using corpse clear skills, which is actually extremely unreliable because speed is a diceroll, the corpse needs to be dead basically immediatelly after the og enemy is killed>just yolo it and risk being repeatedly raped by exploding heads
>>637601584It should be a legal requirement for exploding enemies to have extremely distinctive noises that immediately cause the player's anus to shrivel up the second they hear it.
>enemy ignores entire game mechanic that you have to follow>said enemy is the guy that can attack twice in a single turn with zero counterplay>reboot thankfully fixed this issueName it
>>637578550>Last room before the final boss in an rpg>No music, just the sound of your footsteps>You can actually encounter enemies but the encounter rate is so low that you would never know>Enemies drop the final gear
>>637603814THE MOOSE IS LOOSE looking ass
>don't get the best, most fun weaponry until very late game>no NG+I fucking loathe this bullshit
>enemy has an instakill move>completely fucking you in the ass>look up strategies>"just hope he doesn't use it"
>enemy disables pause and exiting to menu
>Final boss is bullshit overpowered>first run of the game, you have no idea that you actually have infinite time to grind>go to fight the boss>instakills everyone except for two characters that can actually hurt him>inevitably lose>game lowers the difficulty of the boss for you until you can beat himT-thanks Rance
>>637604548>there is a counterplay to his instakill attack>it's a frame perfect parry or dodge
>Enemies cause contact damage>They can also teleport directly on you
>enemy just flies across the scream>just flies from one end to the other>that's all they do>it's a platforming section>they have knockback
>>637591659Ticks in Northern Journey>hide in high branches of trees, surrounded by the foliage, drop down on you if you're close>small and fast>lunge at you and slowly start sucking up a good quarter of your health, with no way to interrupt this>their body inflates to take up a good chunk of your screen, blocking out the sight of any other enemies around you>once done they run off at lightspeed to spawn more ticks>have to spot and kill them instantly, because having more than two active is basically a death sentence>your introduction to this new enemy is a forest filled with dozens of them
>Enemy simply crashes your game if you win>reboots your game in another language
>boss fight is so utterly bullshit you start to think it's a forced loss story thing>it isn't
>platformer>level where you get chased by enemies that perfectly copy your inputs and will kill you if they touch you
>game can crash in the boss intro cinematic if you're running at 60FPS or higher
>>637605285>GPU drivers can crash in the boss intro cinematic if you're running at 60FPS or higher
>>637579220>>637592237>>637594853>Mod Author hides Archviles behind inaccessible walls as enemy resurrectors
>>637605391That's egregious. I was personally talking about a scripted event thankfully. Vampire survivors has a boss that CTD's you and boots the game back up in russian.
>just use silver weapons bro
>>637591724>ranged enemy aggro radius is bigger than their draw distance>meaning if you try to snipe them back, you can't. Their models are invisible.
>>637605469This is the exact kind of shit I hate. Fuck archviles so fucking much.
>Enemy possesses you temporarily>Can make you kill your love interest
>>637585569God I hated that fucking area. Still need to beat that game at some point despite dumping 20 hours into it already.
>Enemy is taking a kicking>Really low health>Switches health bars with you
>>637594260>>637595383>>637597414>Walk into room*eldritch noises*WREEEEEEE*teleports behind you*WREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE*thwump thwump thwump x32*UGH AGH ughhhhhhh*vomits poison over entire room**teleports away with invincability frames*何?*drops from ceiling on top of you*WREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE*thwump thwump thwump x32**stance broken*WREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE*thwump thwump thwump x12**wooosh woosh woosh*>respawn at far away marika statue or even farther away statue of grace?>Run back>Walk into room>
>Game gives you access to a large set of fun abilities to use>Enemy has the power to disable all abilities
>>637605647What happens if you were already playing in Russian?
>The enemy will slowly regenerate the health bars of all other nearby fodder
>>637606826Changes it to Ukranian
>>637591659In Terraria:>jungle tortoises>jungle bees (when you break hive blocks)>jungle hornetsYou know what, just fuck the jungle
>>637606920Aren't they practically identical?
>>637606826That's a good question. I'm not even sure if there was any rhyme or reason it chose Russian the first time other than to maybe confuse me. The achievement you get is called "I can't see anything..." if you care to check any guides.
>>637607032that was the joke, i guess
>Enemy has no way to physically attack you>Just sits there and does a little bit of damage over time>Its also underwater and you can drown>It has so much health that it takes multiple people to break it or it will simply repair itself>The reward is near worthless
>>637575370By far the most anoying enemy to find
