The Invincible Bear in Coastal Highway

Recommended Posts

I encountered a very hard to kill bear in Coastal Highway, stalker survival mode. I hit it 5 or 6 times with the rifle and 2 or 3 times with the revolver and it still managed to run away. It did die on the lake shortly after though.

Also on the same run, same region, I shot at a bear with the rifle, got no hit marker and it ran away. However, a few days later it showed on my stats that I had killed a bear and that was the only one I shot at in that run.

I had similar encounter in voyager run. 3 rifle shots and 5 revolver. But mine dropped after last revolver shot.

I regularly find three bears in CH, (at Stalker level). Two are easy to kill from safe spots, although the bear living on Misanthrope's Island can be riskier.

I find that the bear near the trailer is the easiest bear to kill in all of TLD.

Just watched the recording.  Considering those were almost all body shots... I'm not all that surprised it was able to take so much punishment.

He was consistently shooting the lungs But in this game only headshots are special.

Right... which is why I generalized and called them "body shots."  :D

Oh ok, thanks. I was thinking the lungs and heart would count as a critical hit. I will start aiming for the head.

They might... I don't know for sure, since I can't see the code.  I can only offer what I've seen from my experience, I don't claim to know definitively.  Body shots in the chest area can be critical hits, but in general I find that is not very reliable and much less likely to score a critical hit shooting in that area (though I have seen it happen, I just can't count on it).  I find that the best chance to crit is to just brain them.
