Isn't the point where Sarge argues that the armada should be brought to mars roughly mid-way through the game -- therefore, some would argue he was converted from that point rather than the very beginning... -- Jdowland 22:51, 19 January 2006 (UTC)

"The fastest (and technically safest, if done correctly) way to kill Sabaoth involves a charged Soul Cube and the chainsaw. The tactic is to sprint directly towards Sabaoth, launching the Soul Cube at him as the garage opens, immediately switching to the chainsaw while still sprinting, and engaging him in melee. Once the Soul Cube has inflicted its damage, the chainsaw can finish Sabaoth in less than two seconds, which can be done before he can strike back. However, if the tactic is not performed correctly then the player can quickly find themselves in a bad position. This tactic does not work in the original game due to a slower running speed."

"What does this have to do with BFG Edition?! You can do this just fine in the original game also."

The difference is a much faster running speed in the BFG Edition. In BFG Edition, if you perform the above tactic correctly then you can be chainsawing him before he fires the BFG. In the original game, you simply don't run fast enough; the BFG projectile will be heading your way before you get into chainsaw range. On Nightmare difficulty, this is certain death, and on lower difficulties you'll definitely take damage in the process. whereas in the BFG Edition, it can be done without taking a scratch.
Gotcha, rolled it back. For some reason I thought that advice was universal and it clearly isn't from the last sentence that was already there before. --Quasar (talk) 07:55, 26 July 2023 (CDT)
