Pacifist and relating to boss battles and guns

Hey everyone.

Playing this to get the pacifist achievement, first time through. I'm using only the tranquillizer gun coz I can't kill anyone or I void the achievement.

My question is should I be carrying a second gun like the combat rifle and upgrading it to use in boss battles? Or are you given guns just before that are sufficient?

If you have the pre-order dlc, eventually you will get a grenade launcher which makes the 3rd boss easy.

The second boss has a heavy machine gun in the room directly before the boss which makes it cake.

The first boss can be taken care of with explosive barrels, or there is a smg in the weapons locker to the side of the room.

The final boss is made extremely easy if you use the laser gun.

So apart from the grenade launcher and the laser, its not worth carrying any.

Thank you for confirming that for me, I wasn't sure!

Recent Pacifist

As an additional perspective, from someone who just got that achievement:

I recommend carrying the stun gun too, if you have room.

During my game, I didn't bother with it until near the end, but regretted that pretty quickly.

The stun gun can take out any normal enemy at short range (couple of feet) instantly, rather than waiting for the drugs to kick in with the other gun.

It does have a long reload time, but switching between tranqs at long range, stuns gun for short range, and take downs for melee works remarkably well. Plus, it is very handy when you need to take someone out now, but just ran out of energy so can't do a take down move.

Ammo is plentiful throughout the game for both the pacifist weapons, so you will not likely find yourself ever needing to buy any.

Also, you can stun the bosses for a couple of seconds, giving you time to hit them with your other weapons/barrels/etc, making those fights even easier.

*Minor Spoiler*

One note here though, don't try to do take downs on the bosses when they are stunned. They will pretty much kill you instantly if you try it, at least on the hard mode.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
