Spark Shot for Claire A Final Boss? *spoilers*

#1SMASHMASTER42Posted 1/31/2010 7:29:01 PM
Hey guys. Got RE2 on PSN. I've played it before and beaten it on both scenarios, but I've never played on Claire A. I've been doing a pretty good job with ammo as far as the M79, but how effective is the Spark Shot on the final boss?

I remember Scenario A is a giant dog-like monster. I remember using the Spark Shot to help kill Tyrant in Scenario B, and I think it worked pretty well. So will it work just as well on Scenario A's boss? Also, what other enemies would it work really well against?

From testing myself, it really only seems useful on the third form ( before he transforms into a dog) since he seems to flinch, but otherwise when he mutates into the 4th form, it really becomes useless.

Birkins 4th form is serious business. If you wanna get rocked you can try it... but for me thats just 2 item slots you can use for grenades and healing gear.

I think it's a cool weapon, but useless too. Just use the M79, you'll never store it (since you find so many grenades)

Honestly I would not even risk pulling it out for any of the end boss battles. Waste of 2 slots IMO and the grenade launcher does the job perfectly well

It's a waste of time. It would be much better to use the Sub Machine Gun than that piece of garbage.

I saved the sub machine gun for Leon. I got really gyped out of the ammo with Claire so I wanted Leon to have an easier playthrough.

I tested the Spark Shot out on William's 3rd form and yea, it didn't do much to the dog form. :P Thanks though, maybe when I do Leon A/Claire B I'll use it on Mr. X
