How do I beat machine gunner on rooftop?

  1. The first machine gun guy with body armor was easy. His helmet came off no problem and i took him out. the one on the rooftop however isn't the same story. I can't for the life of me shoot his helmet off and before I can I die. Any tips?

  2. Clarification Request::
    I am stuck on this particular part of the level too. I have noticed that if you shoot him in the leg he will kneel down for a short period of time. I haven't defeated this yet but that could be your best bet. Possibly shoot him in the leg, kneels down, and try laying waste to him at that part.

  1. Just use the same stratagy as the machine gunner in the lobby if you have any weapon other than the machine gun. Just be sure to have a quarter bar of adrenaline because it tales at least 3 shots to knock off his helmet and be sure to strafe the same direction as his weapon arm. That way you can dodge incoming bullets in case you arent in cover.

    However, if you hold onto the drum fed machine gun from earlier in the level, it wont matter qhere you shoot him as those bullets are armor piercing.

  1. Use Bullet Time and shoot him in the face. It's just the timing that matters.

  2. When you do a dive that lands behind cover you can get an angle to shoot him where he cant shoot you.

  4. bullet time and the RPK (I think it's called) if at all possible... other than that, take out his knees and then shoot his helmet from cover. Timing is of the essence.

  5. How come no one has asked this, not only how do you defeat the gunner which alot of you kats say its just timing but no matter what I do the f+ckin building falls before I can even knock the guys helmet off. I saw a Youtube video where the guy took cover then went into bullet time standing up and shooting, over and over again. Bullchit! When i go into bullet time it throws me either to the left, right or behind. What is the deal? Even before you get to the gunner if you take too long the gawd damn buidling falls. Whats the deal?

  6. How annoying was this! Easy solution back step behind cover and crouch (tap L3 then hold L3) to lie down you should be able to take this guys legs out without a scratch! :D

  7. I think you're just supposed to run away, that's what I did. The only way I can beat those heavy machine gunners is with 3 painkillers. Just have them knock me into last man standing 2 times and on the third last man standing he dies. if you don't want to use pain killers. Wait until he reloads, which gives you a brief 1-3 seconds to unload on him, after you do this for a while he'll die.

  8. I faced this guy about 8 times, got annoyed and checked out this page.

    Simple answer: Bullet-time, and hit him in the head.

    What makes it even easier is if you take the gun from the guy at the top of the stairs you face just before you move into that area of the rooftop. (The 2nd guy, just before you face the guy who surprises you by coming at you from behind the gate and moves into your path)
