|These huge crabs are at the top of the food chain in the sewers. They are extremely fast and their thick exoskeleton can withstand heavy blows.|
Crabs can move twice, or move one space and attack in the same turn, so you can't escape them.
They are also stronger & tougher.
And they are significantly better at parrying your attacks, than other enemies in the Sewers.
Crabs are, in all ways, more dangerous than the other enemies in the Sewer stage.
- When you see one, plan your movement by counting two squares for it, for each step you want to take; and pick the best spot to fight it.
- If you are one space away, back up, so it has to move two spaces; and it can't attack that same turn.
- They are hard to use surprise attacks on.
For example, if a crab is next to a door that you are hiding behind, it will move one space into the door, and then attack you; and you will not get a surprise attack.
If the crab uses two moves and ends its turn by opening the door, you will get a surprise attack.
- If you have found a heavy armor, put it on when you see a crab approaching.
If the armor requires Strength that is much higher than yours, it will take more than one turn to put it on; and the crab may be able to rapidly close and attack multiple times.
