Hmm...I didn't know that. Even in shallow water? Thanks for busting that myth for me.

Yeah, even in shallow water. When hitting the water as fast as a bullet, the water is going to act like a brick wall.

It depends on surface tension. In some areas (like near a vulcan) the bullets would go deeper into the water.

hahahaa I remember that one! Seemed like the bigger the bullet, the less deadily it became. The bullets are ripped to pieces when they hit the water. I think adam was saying that he'd have been totally safe just a couple of feet underwater.

Oh and that dragon skin is awesome stuff. I saw the episode of future weapons where he showed that. Truly incredible stuff.

Wait till they charge you head first, aim upper-center mast, and they'll die fast. I also found it was easier to simply hit my "grab enemy" button and beat the sh*t outta them then waste my bullets. AFAIK incendiary vs. regular ammo has no effect on those aliens, but unproven.

For the regular troops, they do have tough armor on their chest, that's why I stick to silenced shots into their face. And whenever I can I enable the laser sight even for long rage shots, in a close-medium range fire-fight, just use semi-auto and tap it into their face and they'll be down.

Also remember that there's no way to steady your shot, technically you could hit the fire button and it will be off the mark, just by that crucial inch. So I've started to basically train my mind to "pre-fire" where I think the reticle will be. Doing this can get you 1-shot kills even if the NKA has his back to you. Generally speaking I've found the AI to be lackluster when I run with my Cloak/Silenced HS/Cloak strat.

I think the next time through the game I will try to play it without guns (where I can).

Even FMJs or AP rounds at a larger angle (60-90 degrees off the water surface)? I never watched the show but I know bullets can even ricochet off water surfaces but something tells me that AP rounds would kill Adam if they were shot at a larger angle.

Yeah I'm pretty sure they were just using standard FMJ in that episode. Maybe hollow points, but definitely not AP.

I think a piece of steel would probably keep right on going. The reason the other bullets exploded was because they were so soft. Obviously, steel is not soft.

I just side step the small alien charges and then melee them with strength mode. take out the bigger flying aliens with 2 gauss rounds.
