You used 2 molotvs and almost all your flamer fuel to kill the most easily avoided bloater in the game
Anyone can take the cowardly route and sneak around. When I play Suvivor I kill as many as I can. ALL BLOATERS MUST DIE. There's no sneaking around. That's for the weak.
The myth that you have to stealth around exclusively in this game is laughable. Anyone with 1/2 a brain can figure out how to deal with low supplies or can open a Shiv door to get some help.
You missed the point. 2 Molotovs and all of the Flamethrower? SO WHAT? WHO CARES? It was about destruction, plain and simple.
Yes this is true he did and I'll agree there were easier ways if killing him and in getting the firefly pendant, but to each their own. Thats part of the great thing about TLOU you can learn from each play through so you known whats works and what doesn't. For instance take the bloater in the winter part that falls through the roof the first time i was running around avoiding his spores the second play through I was ready had can bombs all over the floor waiting on him finished him off with one Molotov
And that's what I do. Try to take them on. Fight. No sneaking around unless I absolutely have to. Last resort! It's all about engaging them in several ways. When I play a section on Survivor, a shootout or whatever, I die on purpose and replay the section over and over again trying to figure out different ways to kill and get thru.
It's all about engagement and getting tangled up.
When I played Survivor mode, the Flamethrower was not available at that point in the the game!
Is there something I am doing wrong?
