Queen_Myrrah/Insanity glitch

Hey everyone,

I found a helpful glitch when I was fighting the queen on insanity. I've played throughout it 5x times to confirm it.

There are 3 parts to fighting the queen.

1) Beginning, once you take the elevator to the top
2) When the Hammer of dawn is available.
3) When the stupid moth starts humping the tower.

When I was playing there were 2x players in the game, just as the damn moth jumps on the tower the 1st time, a 3rd player jumped in to help, I/we noticed that NO SCREECHERS or PALACE GUARDS, show up to help!!

This glitch probably saved my controller.

Goodluck I haven't tried this any other was i.e. 4x players etc or any different stage than the last one.

Hope it helps

Yeah this happened to me the other day, me and my mate were taking on the queen on insane and we spent a good 20 minutes on the third stage but we just couldn't get it. Then someone joined our sesh and from then on no more enemies came. Pretty easy after that

Yeah this seemed to happen for me as well. No guards whatsoever turned up and we all thought what the hell - let's do this!

i ended up doing it in a private arcade game with another person. after our second attempt on the 3rd part of the fight we shot 2 palace guards, then nothing else changed and no other guards spawn and after 2 sets of hammer shots on her we killed her

Does the person joining in halfway through the fight get the credit for finishing the game on insane as well?

Guess so... If you join in the middle or end of a chapter and complete it you get credit for it so I see no reason why this should be different...

Has anyone gotten this to work? We tried but couldn't get it. Does the 3rd person join during the cut scene before she jumps on the tower or after the cut scene?

I've gotten a few PMs over xbl. During my run throughs, the 3rd person dropped in during the cut scene before stage 3 of the fight.

I can confirm that this works. Three people were on insane arcade and when the cut scene came up where she was climbing the tower I joined their game in progress. Even though they say "reinforcements coming", no palace guards ever came. The flying turrets came but those were easy to dispose of.

Piece of cake with this tip. I wish I would have known about it when I did my run through!

Do you pause the game when the cut scene comes or do you just tell the person to join?

Damn. I still can't get it to work. Every time after the cutscene the guards are already there.

I actually started the chapter by myself. I had 1 person pop in before the cut scene and it worked.

i was thinking about this.....does this also apply to ANY chapter/ACT? If i just randomly join an in process chapter on INSANE at the end of it, will it really credit me the whole chapter???? Ive only been creating public games and having others join in so far.

He was asking about one single chapter, not the previous chapters nor the act... Every chapter is autonomous and you can do the chapters/acts following the order you want!! If you have the luck to enter in the final part of a chapter that chapter, and that chapter only, will count!!!
