Quote from: Drone on August 25, 2014, 12:28:18 PM5 is about managable by the whole "hit and run + take cover when they fire" stratagy, but any more than that and it's basically impossible to focus any particular centipede down since they clump together and are so tanky you end up splitting fire between them. On randy random I had a ship part drop right in the middle of 120 visitors, which caused a massive firefight between 15 centipedes + some reavers and said 120 visitors... The centipedes won despite being fired on from all angles.I think part of the problem is inferno cannons make taking cover extremely difficult and that because centipedes are so large yet can fire over eachother you basically end up with the front 2 or 3 centipedes tanking for everything while the back line fires away with impunity. Making centipedes too large to fire over eachother would be a good way to solve this since that way you don't end up with a block of centipedes the size of your kitchen shooting a literal hail of shells and bullets in every direction.Additionally I hope there's going to be some launcher type weapons like rpgs or maybe some armour piercing weapons at so me point which hopefully help with the centipede death-train menace.

Quote from: Rahjital on August 25, 2014, 06:03:36 PMinferno cannons have the longest range of all centipede weapons and are the 2nd fastest aiming weapons in Rimworld, after pistols (which you probably won't use to attack them anyway). The large spread also often works in their favour when they hit target that is dodging or even hidden from their sight behind a wall. Personally, I think they pose the greatest threat of all centipede weapons, being eclipsed only by the charge lances of scythers. It all depends on one's point of view, I suppose.
