A small video about killing Atlas on insane (with comments)

I've made a small video for those having difficulties killing Atlas. Actually, he is pretty easy. See for yourself:

He may be relatively easy once you get the pattern all figured out, but his AOE attacks are still very damaging and hard to dodge in the open.

They sure do. This is why I wrote this video, so people could be less nervous fighting this guy. I was at the beginning.

Smartgun does it better TBH, shoots through obstacles, allows you to see through obstacles, and has homing projectiles.

Smartgun does much less damage, so it's easier to break Atlas plates with railgun. And no, smartgun doesn't always shoot thru obstacles. I can't figure out the pattern, but even on my video you can see projectiles hitting the column.

Atlas is spectacular but the game has way tougher combats against proletarian minions. At first it looked an impossible task but as soon as I understood the tactic situation it was a walk in the park even in Insane. I used Rail Gun.

eh, a pain in the butt with regular bullets.
I see the most important upgrade was the one that allows you to see the upgrades. Maybe i'll restart.

You mean, see nano bars? This is useless upgrade, because radar sucks . It's harder to locate nano bars on radar, than by your own eyes. I always have over 90% nano collected without any radar.

I took him down with the fully upgraded rocket launcher. Not as easy as the rail gun but it does the job
