Re: Banshees- Can you kill the pilot? New info

In Response To: Re: Banshees- Can you kill the pilot? (FrogBlast)

On Reunion Tour, I tried to snipe the banshee's when they spawn upon one of the cliffs. I found where the spawn, and exactly when. I got the game to a checkpoint just before the spawn, and would stand still, and snipe until I got to the exact pixel where they spawn. The animation when they spawn is kind of weird. It shows the banshee and rider spawn in two seperate places for a split second (just above the ground), and then shows the rider getting in as the banshee is falling to the ground (still in the air). I sniped the rider's legs as it was still getting into the banshee but no effect. I tried from two seperate locations (different angles) but no effect. Once the animation starts where is loading in the banshee I guess they are invulnerable.

BTW: I posted something awhile back while on Reunion Tour, if you lure the banshee's under the overhang and back towards the smaller water fall, they will stay low to the ground, and try to run over you without blasting you. Stay in your warthog and you will see what I mean (quite funny).

: I've read more posts on the subject. I know many people here have
: experimented with what I just posted. I want to know if: 1) anyone has
: tried moving a banshee to other areas of the game (using a warthog, since
: you alone can't push it up the hill.)
: 2) anyone has tried messing with the circling banshees that you can see from
: the rocks in the second rescue area in "reunion tour." ?Those
: are the same banshees from the first area?
: 3) anyone has any strategy for downing a banshee intact with a better then 1
: in 10 success ratio.

: thanks.
