The closet game I’ve ever had was pretty awsome:
I was playing as Sunny in a Laz comp against a Goliath. We’d managed to take out a good chunk of its health with stage 1 & 2 domes, but got utterly wrecked in a stage 3 evolve dome. The monster’s epic comeback cost us a strike on trapper (and maybe Assault). So we fell back to the relay and the ensuing skirmishes eventually left everyone with 1 or 2 strikes. We had managed to get the monster down to 1 bar of health, so it was going pretty close.
But then he went in for the kill.
With Trapper already on the dropship, he went straight in for assault. In-capped him and started pounding on the body. Me and Laz were pouring fire onto him trying to do as much damage as possible. By the time those fateful words ‘Assault Is Dead’ appeared on screen the last of the monster’s armour was shot off.
Wasting no time the monster closes in on Laz and tries to kill him. I cloaked him and boosted him as much as I could, but there was only so much we could do. As my jetback booster recharged I opened fire hoping to do as much damage as I could.
2/3 of a bar left. Half of a bar left.
Lazarus then met his demise and Goliath turned to face me. Last man standing with a minute left on the timer.
I thrust backwards in panic all the whilst firing.
1/3 of a bar left.
Goliath leaps towards me.
1/5 of a bar left.
He crouches and I see the end coming. I fire. He pounces. I see myself being pulled into the 3rd person animation and realise he’s won…
…until my mininuke goes off in his face and kills him. This was back when there was a half-second delay between the projectile landing and exploding. It was amazing.
