And because of that, shotgun is my most favorite weapon up to the point, when prophet reaches safety (after going through the alien ship). Then I switch to Gauss Rifle at the station where we meet up with the rest of the marine.
And ya, those pesky little alien machine? The small ones took one good shot from the Gauss, the big ones took two good shot.
Doing what I did, I only died a few times at the start- when I'm just learning how the game works- but after a while the number drops drastically and I barely died at all (except at the flight deck; a bit of advice, stay near the entrance. Unless you had a killer luck or trainer, you couldn't possibly make it exposing yourself)
P.S: If you want any regular hint about this game post it here, I'll do what I can.
