Hello, i'm new here. :D

Many people seems to have difficulty when it comes to fight the smog monster with melee attacks.

Here's my tactic(on normal mode)


The best weapon to fight smogs is the axe.

Get in fight stance, when smog inhales air, do a front dash and hit his lungs. That will get him to the ground. When he is lying down, hold the strong attack button to deliver a powerful attack. Immediately after you hit him, he will wake up, do a quick+power attack combo. He will be stuned and all you have to do is finish him.

This tactic works 100% of the time.

With the Pipe/crowbar, it's pretty much the same tactic(front dash and hit the lungs, strong attack on the ground) but you will have to reapeat the tactic twice because these weapons are less powerful than the axe.

Those Smogs are bastards. . . I used to melee'em all the time but my health just couldn't handle it. It's easy just to shoot it's lungs 'cause the fireaxe is too slow and whenever it's the right time those bastards will pierce you with their "lung claws" :|

Could I ask what you mean by 'front dash'?

The dodge button. Smash it and press forward at the same time to "dodge" forward towards the enemy.

Aha. Still learning to press that at the right time.

And, something very similar in action.

I don't actually know how it killed him on the second hit, maybe it somehow hit the weak spot... while he was down?

Two shots with the pistol work great for me, but I'm going to try this next time. Thanks!

Apparently, about halfway through the charge of the gas attack, you lunge in and knock him senseless. If you time it perfectly, you'll hit the lungs and end it in two hits.

Smogs are, in my opinion, the most interesting creatures in the game. Sure, they ripped off the Lying Figure, but then the title "Smog", its attacks, and its symbolism just captivates me.

And it worked. Thanks.

Just get behind it and unleash chaos. Time your dodges perfectly and all, that's the only good tactics you need. Thanks to it's heavy arms I don't think there is/there will be a good tactic to beat the Siam without wasting health. . .

Dodging the slow ass Siam is about as easy as it gets for this game. Schisms give me fits compared to Siams.

Actually, the best player I've seen so far and owns all the monsters is Jerikuto from youtube, just watch his professional/hard mode gameplay and be amazed... :lol:

Especially the police station part, damn! :twisted:

Slow ass for you. Whenever the fucker rushs at me (running like a rhino) it's a pain to get up without getting hit.

I have a hard time with this too. Even thought he is slow his width more then makes up for it.

A way to kill Smogs without using the gun? Hooray!

My aim with the gun is shocking, and when Alex is choking, on my controls I have to left-click the mouse rapidly to get away, but left click is also how to shoot the gun, so unless I stop immediately I waste a few shots.

Is there a weird AI glitch on my game, or if the Smog has his back to you, does he not turn around and see you until you do something to him? Several times I've stood there waiting and waiting for him to turn around and see me and expose his lungs so I can shoot him, and unless I do something it just doesn't happen.

But now I've read this I will definitely try killing them this way, so I can save pistol ammunition.

The key is not to doge too early. His big slow attacks are misleading. He winds up, then swings, THEN attacks. People often have twitchy fingers and dodge during the initial part of the attack (I still do it from time to time). When he charges is the best, because a dodge will make you roll behind him for some lady legs action. :D I love me some legs. And decapitating it by removing the woman's arms is just fun. The best thing to do is to not get knocked down to begin with, and if you do, tap the dodge or an attack button to kip up, immediately dodging back a few times to recover your bearings.
