Introduction ==================================== This is an FAQ to describe Instant-kills (abbreviated as IK, take note) and the Conditions the monsters perform them in. As you know, Resident Evil Outbreak holds many enemies with many Attacks that kill you in one swipe. =================================== B1. What is an Instant-kill? =================================== An Instant-kill is an attack performed by an enemy that well, instantly kills you. No buts about it. These attacks are easy to dodge, but not always. There are many situations where one of these will catch you against your will. ===================================== C1. Instant Kills and Conditions ===================================== Alas, the guide. This information is gathered by my experiences with them. ------------ A01. Titan ------------ xxxxxxxxx Removal. xxxxxxxxx One of the most murderous of all IKs. It is simple to dodge yet troublesome, especially in Showdown 2 or 3. - Conditions: Player or AIPC in Red caution or Danger status. - Action: Titan lifts his front two legs in the air and stomps you. It has a small radius limited to the area it‘s feet land and is VERY difficult to get by in Danger. - Death animation: Your character lifts his head in the air after being crushed; finds themselves flattened, the screen fades. - Cancellable? Yes, shoot Titan under his trunk in the throat with any weapon. A Grenade will stun him every time; it can hit anywhere. - Able to be blocked by Mark/Mark NPCs? Yes. xxxxxxxxxxx Removal #2 xxxxxxxxxxx - Conditions: While Titan is alive and you're inside the Office. - Action: Titan has two window moves. The trunk flail and the Removal. The Removalwill drag you out the window and flash to a black screen. The black screen shows Titan performing the Stomp IK, aka Removal #1. The screen fades after the stomp. - Death Animation: See Action. - Able to be blocked by Mark/Mark NPCs? No. --------------------------------- B02. The Stalker/Lionesses --------------------------------- xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Dismissing Fling xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx This is a very deadly IK. The Lion can jump in a cone shape and nail you. Not easily dodged unless you are a character that has a special action to avoid the move. - Conditions: Random occurrence if your health is Yellow Caution or below. It seems to occur more often if you are in Danger status. - Action: The lion gets into a low pre-pounce stance and begins to snarl. It takes a few seconds to leap at you, making it easier to dodge. - Death animation: Your character holds his/her arms out and stares down at themselves. You bleed profusely from your stomach and fall over backward; the screen fades. - Cancellable? No. There is nothing you can do but dodge it/move out of the way. - Able to be blocked by Mark/Mark NPCs? Yes. ------------------- C03. Thanatos ------------------- xxxxxxxx Thrust. xxxxxxxx The most pathetic IK of them all. Easily dodged and stunned. - Conditions: Random occurrence from his four attacks. - Action: Thanatos points at you for a few seconds, and then does a stabbing thrust with his opposite arm. - Death Animation: Similar to the Lion IK, only your character falls forward onto their knees, and then onto their face. The screen then fades. - Cancellable? Every weapon you can find will stun this aside from knives and an un-potshotted handgun. - Able to be blocked by Mark/Mark NPCs? Yes. Why would you block this though? It is very simple to dodge even in Danger status. ------------------ D04. Tyrant-R. ------------------ xxxxxxxxxxxx Mega Slash xxxxxxxxxxxx Tyrant R's signature move. Boy does he like to spam this! - Conditions: Random occurrence when you are close to him. - Action: Tyrant makes an angry grunting sound and raises his arms. He flails them in a circular motion FIVE times and finally drops his arms. He will be temporarily winded when he has finished. - Death Animation: The exact same as the Lions. - Cancellable? Yes. Grenade rounds instantly stun him, six medium range shotgun rounds, a potshotted .45/Magnum round or any critical hit that does not come from a regular Handgun or Knife. - Able to be blocked by Mark/Mark NPCs? No. You can simply dodge this by turning around and letting him slice your back. ------------------ E05. Tyrant C ------------------ xxxxxxxxxxxx Mega Slash xxxxxxxxxxxx This IK probably causes the most deaths. Tyrant C is very quick and can land this on you in seconds. - Conditions: Random occurrence. - Action: The exact same as Tyrant R, only about 10x faster. - Death Animation: See "Lioness." - Cancellable? See "Tyrant R." - Able to be blocked by Mark/Mark NPCs? No. Turn around and let him slice your back if you cannot run away. ------------ F06. Nyx ------------ xxxxxxxxxxxx Absorption xxxxxxxxxxxx This IK kills few, although it can hardly be considered an Instant Kill. - Conditions: Random occurrence when you are a certain distance from Nyx. Will only take full effect if you do not kick his arm off the same way you would shrug off a zombie’s grab. - Action: Nyx lifts back his long arm and swings it overhead at you. If you are a certain distance away, to where you are hit with the end of the arm, he will begin sucking on you. Once he does "absorb" you, your virus moves as though you were stuck in Crawling status. You can although open his core by mashing buttons, which is very helpful. It may save your life. - Death Animation: Nyx absorbs you to become part of him. You are held captive in Nyx's head. If your virus hits 100% while absorbed, your screen just fades. - Cancellable? No, unless you knock Nyx to his knees while he is doing so. - Able to be blocked by Mark/Mark NPCs? Yes. ------------------------ G07. Hunter Gamma ------------------------ xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Eating or Underwater Eating xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx There are not many Hunter Gammas in file #2, but they are there, found in Elimination 3. For those who do not know what a Hunter Gamma is, they are the Blue/Green frog-like things found in Decisions, Decisions on File #1. - Conditions: The Hunter will begin to spam this when you are in Red Caution. - Action: The hunter picks you up with both arms, puts you in its mouth, and begins chewing, doing accumulative damage. - Death Animation: The hunter eats you whole. You just disappear into it's stomach and it shows the Hunter swallow. The screen fades seconds after you are eaten whole. - Cancellable? Anything will stun this. ANYTHING. Kicks, tackles, and any arsenal you find. A team-mate can attack the Hunter while its trying to swallow you and stop the IK. - Able to be blocked by Mark/Mark NPCs? No. Because the beginning of the eating loop is a grab, the block fails at protecting from it. ------------------ H08. Hunter R ------------------ xxxxxxxxxxxxx Headhunting xxxxxxxxxxxxx This IK is easy to bypass. Not a huge threat unless in Danger status. - Conditions: When the Hunter is near death, or you are in low Yellow Caution they will begin to spam this. - Action: The Hunter lets out a shriek and begins to draw back it’s right arm. It can swing in any direction located about 50 degrees from the direction it is facing, so standing to the side will not suffice. - Death Animation: See "Lioness." - Cancellable? See "Hunter Gamma" - Able to be blocked by Mark/Mark NPCs? No. Plain and simple. ----------------- I09. Axeman ----------------- xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Accumulative Shiver and Chop. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Another easily bypassed IK yet is quite a threat. Especially in a narrow hallway. - Conditions: Random occurrence when you‘re in Red Caution or below. Axeman does not do this as often as most IKs. - Action: Axeman raises his Axe with a yell, and performs a double-handed downward swing. - Death Animation: See "Lioness." - Cancellable? Yes, A Chemical Bottle, pipe, hammer, crutch, et cetera. Regular handgun shots, tackles (with the exception of Kevin’s elbow) are ineffective. - Able to be blocked by Mark/Mark NPCs? No. You die. Game over. --------------------- J10. The Alligator --------------------- xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx The Alligators Special Talent xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx This is the most humorous of all IKs. Can be easily bypassed. - Conditions: Whenever you are on the shore of the lake or swimming. The Alligator will only bite your leg. Whilst being chewed, damage slowly adds up, if you are still being chewed when your HP is depleted, you are eaten. - Action: The Alligator begins biting your leg, he will then toss you into the air and catch you in his mouth and drag you underwater. If you are swimming and killed, you see your character pulled underwater as the screen fades. - Death Animation: See the Action. - Cancellable? Yes, if you are grabbed on the shore, you can kick off the gator the same way you push off a zombie grab. If you are grabbed while swimming, the only way you can get free is if someone else shoots it. - Able to be blocked by Mark/Mark NPCs? Nope. This move is a grab attack just like the Hunter Gamma’s. ------------------------------- K11. The Window Zombie ------------------------------- xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx The Angry Zombie xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx This is runner-up of hilarious IKs. - Conditions: If you are close to a window that a zombie is behind, they will grab you. - Action: The Zombie grabs you and bites you a few times but can be shoved off like the regular grab. This will only kill you if your HP falls below a certain level. - Death Animation: The zombie pulls you out the window and you can hear your character being feasted on; the screen fades. - Cancellable: Yes, either by pushing the zombie off or having another team-mate attack it. - Able to be blocked by Mark/Mark NPCs? No. You are grabbed to quickly to block this. ================================= D1. Legal Information ================================= This FAQ is written and under copywrite by the author.
