Angry Mutant menace job! Are you kidding me??

WTF?? This job is driving me crazy. I have tried to beat it about 20 times with no luck. I have been playing rage on hard since the start. Not many problems until this job. Any one else have any strategy?? I have made it to the last couple of guys SOOOOOO many times and they kill the plumber. I am about ready to pull my hair out. Thanks

It's a pain on every difficulty. Just try to remember where they come from and pick em off asap.

Sniper skills are a plus.

I had the same problem. Someone here suggested using grenades and wingsticks. If you have a save before this mission, load that up and stock up on grenades (or just quit the mission, stock up on grenades, and redo the mission). The ones coming from the left should be fairly easy to snipe. When you see the ones running in from the right, spam your grenades. Use wingsticks when they are really close.

Hahaha I hear you bro, that was the only thing I was bitching about in the OFFICIAL BITCHING THREAD. This mission sucks ass.

What I found out to make things easier is only using the standard zoom of the sniper rifle, even for distance shots. If you use the advanced zoom it ends up in having to much recoil and you miss the fast moving targets. Oh and always go for the red mutants first, they are really angry.

Thanks blaze. will have to give it a try. I wish they could let you switch guns. I have gotten so many times to the last couple of guys and couple of the fuckers would jump on the rail and kick my ass. Those fuckers move fast!!!

I hate any game that uses snipey scopes too much, I just don't have the knack for it. Could be worse for me, the multiplayer could be nothing but sniper combat.

The mission was weirdly hard, I just thought hit was because I suck at games.

Ha, same problem. Unconfirmed but I found that if you wingstick 1x of the 2x guys on the ground and shoot the other one. The third one to the upper left doesn't run away. Once those 3x are dead, IMO it didn't seem like as many came afterwards making it somewhat easier compared to the multilt times attempted.

I have shot both the ones eating the guy, then the guy to the left before the crew came out. Still no luck. I had two on the rail with me kicking my ass. I am thinking about trying the grenede strategy. Buy a buck and chunk the shit out of them.

I did it 5 times on nightmare, the higher the difficulty the more annoying the mutants become (especially mutants dodge your bullet).

On every difficulty I think the plumber will be instant-killed if hit by mutants.

Be aware that when you are attacked by the mutants later, it's usually the most frequent moment of fails.

Blaze is right, just use the standard zoom. I swear with the extra zoom it lags and you actually had to lead them a bit. As soon as I stopped zooming I got it first try.

Use grenades.

Get a lot of grenades and just spam them and then pick off the remaining few. Worked the first time I tried it that way and I had been stuck on this one for a while just sniping.

I got it first try on normal but I did just fail it first attempt on nightmare. I'm not sure what tips to give but I use sniper rifles in most games often so maybe I'm just used to using them. Just make sure you take out the early mutants without the guy losing any health which will give you some space towards the end.

I'm having the same problem here. I wan't to try to deploy a turret or that spider turret next to me. Hoping those turrets would kill off the mutants. But I haven't tested it yet. When I go in I'll give it a try and if it doesn't work, i'll nade 'em to hell and back

start shooting the moment they appear, forget head shots, go for body shots. nightmare takes 2 shots to down one mutant but you go much faster if you don't aim for the head

Don't forget you get the semi-auto upgrade and 250 sniper rounds that don't count against your ammo outside of the job, so just unload they go down quick when your not worried about ammo.

Dude--excellent suggestion!

Like a lot of people I completely suck at sniping fast moving targets. I wasted 1.5 hrs last night trying it with the rifle (on Nightmare.) Today, I maxed out my grenades (I think you'll need ,like, $260 assuming no inventory to start) and then breezed through it on my second try (used the first one to figure out my ranges so I could drop the grenades out far enough in front of the guard so he wouldn't take damage, then just spammed that spot to create a kill zone--worked slick as snot.) I still had one mutie climb up after me, but was actually able to take it out with 2 melee hits and continued chucking 'nades, though I did have to shoot one that was able to get to the guard while I was occupied up top.

... now if I can just figure out that damned 5 Finger Filet I'd be a happy camper.

When you accept the job and goes straight to the mission, you'll get a message that the sniper is semi-automatic

You get it when you accept the mission. It is instantly added when you start the mission, as it is supposed to be a mission focused on using your sniper rifle.

Must've gotten lucky on this one. I beat it first Try on Nightmare. And I missed - a lot. Although I did have about 3 red Mutants Climb the Wall somehow and attack me instead of the Two on the ground.

Spam grenades and wingsticks and it is pretty easy, even on nightmare. The key is the grenades.

I wasn't even aware you could use grenades/wingsticks! Somehow I did this first time on nightmare and I'm terrible with a sniper rifle. Was surprised when I got jumped by 2 mutants but I just shot them with my rifle (luckily I had my volume up loud otherwise I wouldn't have even known they were there lol

Bottom line - it is possible to do this on nightmare using only the sniper rifle as long as the other guy with the gun remains alive

Maybe it's just me, but when I played it on nightmare, the mission always failed when the first guy died even if the second one is still alive.

When I was trying to do this mission using just the sniper rifle, I think once I might have accidentally killed that first guy myself. Not positive if there is friendly fire on this mission, but I hated this mission and can't be bothered to check.
