Are you aiming at the MAIN BODY of the ship, or are you aiming at THE SIDE ARMS of the ship? You need to take out the side arm-turret-thingies before you go for the main body.

Could also be glitched... not like there's no others in this game.

Again... BTDT

Shoot the 4 turrets, once done they will shoot down the shields and you can lock the TAC gun. If it doesnt work for you try to reload from the begining of the level (not the part where you kill the first big boss). You will first lock on to the left side of the ship your facing, then the right then under the belly after you blow it upen with something other than the TAC.

This part for me was horribly buggy, when fighting the first big alien my fps would drop randomly from 27 to 8 and of course the alien would attack and kill me when it did. At first I thought this was a problem with rendering a complex character then I went into the map editor and dropped 4 of them in the ice level and it only dropped to about 14fps with all 4 loaded and moving around (its fun to make them throw around the koreans). Oddly the big ship didnt slow my system down at all but oh well.

The boss before this one is what was bugged for me.

This part was easy. Just shoot down the 4 turrents, then when the shields are down after she uses the nano suit sound thing - AIM AT THE ARMS OF THE SHIP.

Also - you cant run out of ammo on that part. There are unlimited rocket launchers and ALOT of gauss ammo.

Ok. Shoot the turrets off the Big flying battleship. Left side first. Then once that sides shield it down, aim at it and hold fire. Then do it to the right side. Once youve shot 2 missiles, back up and shoot the turrets off the bottom. Then shoot the nuke into the big open circle and start to run!

INSANELY FRUSTRATING! I'm with you they need to fix this bug, quickly. Sick and tired of hearing that voice tell me to lock on to target! Replaying the level is a pretty poor solution especially if you get the same problem over again.

Sorry..the frozen scene where Prophet comes charging to your rescue, then proceeds to get his suit mucked up by the alien drones... THAT was the most glitch-filled bit I had.

Aperently, if you don't kill the 2 3-drone waves in a manner where they all hit the ground, the system doesn't register the drones as dead... and Prophet freezes and you have to do it again from the last save.

So after > 17 attempts, I broke down and went 5 quick-saves after each bugger hit the ground, grabbed the last one and just pummelled the holy-living crud out of it and threw it on the ground... finally moved on and was very satisfying.

I had the same problem. My solution to the problem was: shoot the arm/canon whatever you wanna call it with another type of gun: I used shotgun and SMG. Then switched back again to TAC gun and it started locking immediately. Hope this help you guys out.

GreetZ,

After you destroyed the 4 turrents... YOU STILL HAVE TO WAIT A FEW MINUTES before you can use the TAC gun. The spaceship will fire you with its big guns at least twice before you are told that the shield has been disabled. (Try to hide in insdie a fallen VTOL-like object on the left side with cloak mode on, those big gun can kill you with 1 hit). Then the left big gun will start glowing in blue, and this is when you can lock and shoot it with a TAC gun .

After you shoot the left big gun, again you have to wait for some minutes before the right big gun starts to glow in blue again. Then lock it and shoot it with the TAC gun.

You then have to shoot a certain part of the spaceship several times....

This final boss is not that hard to kill, but the script and instruction in this part of the game are extremely confusing, making everyone thinks that the TAC gun is somehow bugged (including me). I spent an hour repeatledy playing this part without being able to fire a single shot of the TAC gun. I only realized how to use this TAC gun after seeing a youtube video on killing this final boss.

you're right! i should add that you need to shoot it with OTHER weapons (i'd use the missle launcher). only after you've destroyed the the hatch, is when you can use the TAC gun again to finish the job.

that's where the confusion comes from. people thinking the TAC gun doesnt work, because of that silly girl yelling at you to fire it when it's not yet the right time.
