Firebug Throttle v2.0 Information

“The still – functional throttle engines of the LU-74 unit “Firebug”, so named due to its unusually large exhaust flames. Despite the best efforts of the CREO engineers leading LU-74’s construction, the were never able to pinpoint a precise cause for the larger-than-normal flames. An explanatory note was entered into LU-74’s service record, but LU-74 was neither the first nor the last CREO machine to develop idiosyncratic faults of unknown provenance.”


Firebug Throttle v2.0 Details

  • This weapon can make a fire ring around you by doing 2 horizontal attacks then a vertical. or shoot a blast of fire with 2 vertical attacks then a horizontal one. Alternatively, the fire ring can be trigered by performing one vertical attack followed by two horizontal attacks and the blast by doing one horizontal followed by two verticals.
  • While locking some limbs on humanoid enemies, the vertical moveset changes making the player trigger the blast attack only by performing the 1 horizontal - 2 vertical combo.

      The vertical moveset changes when locking on some body parts for humanoid enemies. I stated this in my edit and wrote another way to trigger the blast attack

        Man, this one is really easy to get. Got it by accident, was aiming for the limbs because I figured it would stop the spinning arm attack. Didn't manage to cut all three of until it was at a quarter health, though just cutting two makes it so you can dodge easily through its spinning attack.
