Overview[edit | edit source]
The Saggitarian Sidewinder is a large mechanical creature with a body that resembles a snake. It floats around in the air and its body is covered with multiple rows of metal spines. It has three small red mechanical eyes in the center of its head.
Occurrence[edit | edit source]
In Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope, the first Saggitarian Sidewinder appears as a miniboss in the first Arcadia Minor stage, and has much larger health than its regular counterpart. A group of them appear in the third Arcadia Minor stage, prior to the battle with the Spaceship.
Attacks[edit | edit source]
The Saggitarian Sidewinder behaves quite similarly to the Shaanti Dragon, but has much less health. Its only attack is to launch a group of drones at the player. These drones will try to crash onto the player and explode upon impact.
Tactics[edit | edit source]
- The miniboss variant has a large amount of health, as such, explosive arrows like the Bow and the XPML21 Rocket Launcher are recommended to use against it. Power-ups, such as Serious Damage, can help to defeat it quickly.
- The drones can be avoided either by shooting at them or by using a shield.
- Rapid-fire weapons, such as the M29 Infantry Assault Rifle and XM214-A Minigun, are effective against groups of Saggitarian Sidewinders, as their rapid-fire state and damage lets the player quickly kill each Saggitarian Sidewinder. The AS-24 Devastator is also effective against groups of them.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Its name is derived from the sidewider, a venomous rattlesnake native to deserts of the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico.
