Been playing through F2 again and after helping a bunch of scruffy ruffians kill a spammer, committing rat regicide and getting thrown out of Vault City, I reached the Enclave Oil Rig.

I can't believe the stuff you have to do to get anywhere, assassinating the President of the United States is the easy part of it and once you've dealt with that, you have to take on Frank Horrigan and his merry band of gun turrets. :S

Looks like it's back to grinding for me. T.T

I have run out of places to climb. I will abandon this body and take to the air. We will leave twin vapor trails in the air, white lines etched into these rocks. I am the aerial. In my passing, I will send news to each and every star.

I think the Control Company is helpful, especially since they can be used as Cannon Fodder for Horrigan while you sneak up behind him and diddle him good
But it'll help

It's helpful but it doesn't do much, when you get pasted by a single gun turret. :S

I've found that your best bet is having the high science skill and turning the turrets on Horrigan, then using those guys as cannon fodder (for the two or less turns that they'll last) until your party are ready to take him down.

Of course, Horrigan won't expect the ace up my sleeve...

I've realised that my problem is having a crap build and being at level 20. Thus, I've decided to go on a long journey, a road trip to all the settlements, taking up every quest, upgrading my crappy gear as best I can.

Seems to be doing okay, going to beat Lo Pan up, star in a few sex tapes and then I'll be ready to crush Horrigan!  :D

Nothing can defeat Horrigan except an STD-Ridden Tribal who beat up a few Chinese people lol

Prepare yourself Horrigan! You're about to face the wrath of spinning Jenny!

I think I will have to decide which companions I want with me. Somehow I don't want to put too much faith into Myron's seduction skills.

Myron looks like a emaciated 13 year old on his good days, dunno how he has any seduction skills to begin with. Unless people in the wasteland like REALLY BIG BRAINS.

You should just bring Marcus and Goris. And the Pariah Dog of course

I managed it, me, Marcus, Sulik, Goris and Cass managed to while him out! 😁

I killed him without saying a word to him.

Then I went and beat up LO PAN, I'm officially out of quests.

Now it's time to get in your highwayman and drive off into the sunset with a clown car containing a Supermutant, a Tribal who talks to his nose piercing, a Deathclaw and some guy who's always drunk
The real true ending for Fallout 2
But it'll help
