The Vertigo is an enemy that appears in Serious Sam: Tormental.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Vertigo is a red creature with one eye, and has two mouths on its sides.

They are rare enemies, only appearing in the Tomb stage.

Attacks[edit | edit source]

The Vertigo's only attack consists of spinning around and firing three projectiles from its two mouths. It can't move and thus always attacks in the same location.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

  • The Vertigo's projectiles can be avoided by hiding behind cover.
  • Despite its large amount of health, the Vertigo is rather easy to kill. The Pistol can deplete its health quickly and the player can avoid its projectiles by strafing.
  • Like other large enemies encountered in the game, Vertigos will receive a yellow outline on their body when their health becomes too low. The player can dash into them when they have a yellow outline on their body, which kills them instantly and spawns some pickups.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The name of this enemy is based on a condition where a person has the sensation of moving or of surrounding objects moving when they are not. It often feels like a spinning or swaying movement.
