Giant Amoebae (singular: Giant Amoeba) are spherical creatures distinguished by their attack - sliding towards the player and exploding. Giant amoebae are spawned from the amoeba pore, and can be destroyed by either shooting the pore, or shooting the amoeba itself.

OverviewEdit

Giant amoebae resemble balls of green-grey-ish sludge with a ball of dark grey sludge at its core. They favor swarming towards the player, and attack by exploding. Once an amoeba gets close to its prey, it will stop and begin to shiver and turn red-ish. It will then explode a second or two after. It would seem that the amoeba isn't the actual creature, but simply a "drone" sent by the pore (which is the actual creature) to defend it from harm. They are first encountered in the lower levels of D6.

TacticsEdit

Ameoba pore

Ameoba Pore

Any weapon can easily dispatch an amoebae with a single hit, yet the quickest and best way to eliminate amoebae is to preemptively destroy the pores as when a pore is destroyed, the amoeba will not spawn from it. It is also recommended to run ahead of Miller and kill the pores before he catches up. This is the best way to dispatch them without having to worry about Miller being killed. A Kalash/Kalash 2012 is recommended when dispatching the pores. The pores can also be shot from the second floor before descending down to the third. Consequently the player can have Artyom running around the inner edges of the pit to get to the end of the path and fight his way backwards back to Miller. Doing either of these is almost mandatory when playing on the ranger difficulties. Weapons that have laser sights attached to them are recommended in ranger difficulties, you can aim quickly to keep them off you.

In the NovelEdit

Amoebae do not appear in the book. During the second to last chapter of the book, Artyom witnesses dark, grey leather balls as tall as himself, rolling around the surface of VDNKh. These could possibly be some form of amoeba. However, the location is also the "nest" of a Demon, so the balls may be its eggs.

There is also a kind of semi-sentient "sludge" inhabiting the basement and underground station of the Kremlin. This is supposedly the result of biological weapons used at the landmark. However, this life form uses some form of psychic influence to lure prey into its mass and devour them, rather than exploding.

TriviaEdit

  • It is best to pay attention to Miller as you make your way through the amoebae. He can easily be out-manned and killed by the amoebae, leading to a game over.
  • Miller will only target the amoebae and will ignore the pores. Failing to deal with the pores will allow possible attacks from multiple directions from the pores the player pass by.
