Gears of War 2

Yeah, it's a good game. Get it. End of story.

But, there are 2 sections in the campaign, which are hyper-weak. The fight against Skorge and protecting the comm array, both near the end.

As far as I can tell, both are entirely reliant on luck, and not skill.

That's pisspoor, and makes me very angry as well.

UPDATE: I saw a few searches coming in for this, so I thought I'd add some information about it, so that people actually get an answer.

Try and kill the reavers in the air - they die more quickly.
After about 45 seconds, one will fly from right to left, and bomb the final radar from the air.
When this happens, it's game over.

You need to down 6, quickly, before this happens.

The right hand turret is, for some reason, much easier to do it with.

Zoom in, lead them in the air (shoot just ahead of them), drop them out of the air.

Bottom line, though, unless you're an incredible shot with the Troika, there's a fair old bit of luck involved, and you'll probably have to try a few times. Also, and I know this sounds weak, taking a break can really help. Go play a round of Horde, or watch TV for a few minutes and then come back.

Good luck, and please leave a comment if you have any tips.
