I recently read on the Fallout 2 nearly ultimate guide that if you are not intelligent enough to use the console in the room with the turrets or if you do not have the presidential access card that there is another way to make the final battle easier. However you need to do this before you disable the reactor. What is says is to destroy the turrets. This way, they will not be able to help Horrigan in the battle. According to the guide, this is also a good way to make the battle more fair without either side being aided by the turrets. Now this has me thinking. I have beaten the game recently with four builds, one using pistols, single shot sniping weapons, gatling laser, and Big Guns. However, every single time, I had to rely on the turrets to take him down as they would gun me down before I could take his health down significantly. What's the point of creating a combat character if you don't actually get a chance to unleash your characters full potential on the final boss. Why not turn the tables on him and mop the floor with him instead of the other way around? It would be a far more satisfying accomplishment than simply relying on the turrets, which I think is more suited to a sneak or diplomatic build. Maybe I should start doing this for all my builds (except maybe melee because they would probably cut me to ribbons too quickly). Has anyone else tried this strategy?
