Behaviour Edit

The behaviour of the Arcturan is similair to the other ranks, the Arcturan will approach the player and check the distance. If the distance between the player and Arcturan is less than 32.0 units it will perform a melee attack. If the player is too far away it will shoot 3 projectiles at once. One projectile goes straight to the player while the other two in an offset of (minus) 5 degrees forming a spreadshot. If the Arcturan gets hit by friendly fire it will retaliate.

Strategy Edit

While kind of harmless from a distance you should avoid being close to the spreadshot Arcturan at all costs. One close-ranged shot will nearly kill the player. Two full hits from a spreadshot will kill the player if not wearing any armour. The best weapon to use it either the shotgun or Pulsar. To take them down from a distance use your pistol.
