I'm in Pittsburg at the Grand Hotel. I've tried a lot of different varieties but nothing effective.

Is there a weakness to these things or are they "just that hard?" lol

Call of Duty killed the shooter.

Use nail bombs and Molotovs. A couple of nail bombs should do the trick, with the Molotovs batting cleanup if necessary.

Just rush past that one, later on you'll get. Flamethrower that basically destroys them

The first time I saw one I ran around like a maniac with a shotgun, getting a few hits in and running away. The next time I ran into one I found out two Molotovs do the trick just fine. In the final quarter of the game you'll find a flamethrower that burns them down in seconds.

Just keep backing away and shooting them while all the while dodging their bombs. Not at all difficult unless you're in an enclosed place and they're 1-shotting you.

Are you low on ammo or something? Once you get the flamethrower I saved that exclusively for these guys, but thats at like +90% of the game.

I only killed the first one. All of the others I just avoided. Didn't want to deal with them at all.

1 Molotov and 1 Nail bomb killed him. So try that.

I seem to recall nail bombs doing jack to them so I use molotovs, fire takes them down easily.
