Minion's Back Panel (TMB Co-Op)
01/02/10 at 23:45:18
 
Lately I've been playing co-op with my mom (who's been a TM fan since '96), with me as Roadkill and her as Spectre. We got through the first three stages with relative ease, but now we're stuck on Minion.

I usually have an easy enough time with Minion in single player, and was always able to dispatch of the back panel rather easily, but this is just ridiculous. The panel is hard enough to hit, but it seems to take the most damage out of any part of his car. It took a pair of maxed out RK missiles and several other various weapons to take it out, and by that point, we were both almost dead on our final life.

Any tips?

Its been a while since I've played it, and by a while I mean at least 7 years, but the way I remember it is that Minion chases one of the two co-opers almost exclusively so one should mostly just run/play defensively if he is chasing them and the other concentrate on the back panel. Not sure if this is the best strategy though as I'm working off of old faded, splintered memories of playing Black.

What Xizor siad is good for Co-Op.

Another thing your going to have to learn is rear fire. If you can pass Minion on a head on chicken run without hitting him, when you pass him, you should be able to fire a few fire missles rearward and hit the target. He doesn't turn fast so he's a ripe target like that. I've hit him with Gas cans that way.

I've had his rear shield down very fast that way. I always tried to get that 1st. So long as you know he used up his SP, you can do passes like that untill his SP comes back. Rinse and repeat.

Ohh....and I think reverse fire is Right, Left, Down, Fire.

Reverse Fire is LEFT, RIGHT, DOWN, FIRE ... I believe.

Another useful tip is to grab the machine gun upgrade in the two corners and simply run up to him and use your shield to absorb his flames and just shoot him with the machine gun.  For some reason the upgraded machine gun makes him spin in circles.  The regular machine gun does not.  While he is spinning, try to aim for the back panel with both machine guns AND missles and his back panel is CAKE.  This works for both co-op and single player.
