The Centaur is an enemy that appears in Serious Sam 2.
Overview[edit | edit source]
Centaurs are natives of the planet Ellenier. Mental found these creatures and was impressed by their unusual male-dominated society, but he thought they looked like pansies, so he took them, gave them some war paint to put over their bodies, and gave them a bow, arrow and shield. After being certified, they were allowed to go onto the battlefield.
The Centaur has two attacks; shooting arrows at the target from a distance, and a melee attack if the target gets too close.
Tactics[edit | edit source]
- The Centaur has low health, but appears at distances, so long range weapons like the RAPTOR Sniper Rifle work best against him. One sniper shot will kill a Centaur, no matter the difficulty level.
- Their arrows can be dodged by simply strafing in a direction. Even groups of Centaurs can be made harmless by strafing in one direction.
- When mixed with other enemies, the Centaur poses little threat to the player. Their arrows are easy to dodge when trying to avoid other enemy projectiles, and their low health makes them easy to quickly take down if the player has a moment to spare. They are not a priority target in a firefight.
