final cutscene review.
hi!, im shotz and im the author of this walkthrough to the last mission of the game "GUN". if your reading this you have probably made it this far and got stuck on the last level like on many games before, congratulations for getting that far anyway.
so, you've managed to battle your way through bandits, gunfights, women, train robberies and more and you're finally here at the last duelling fight of your journey...MAGRUDER.
you want to kill the monstrosity? read on...
part 1 of "killing magruder"
ok, here we go.
firstly, you will be in a cave surrounded by blue-green geysers on the floor, dont worry about guns, the geysers are your weapons.
magruder will be walking around trying to shoot you with a multi-barrelled nock-gun (seven barrelled shotgun), i suggest you equip the dynamite bow and make sure its loaded to the max. stay opposite or behind magruder as he doesnt really follow you he just circles the cave shooting...stay well away from him, if you take a hit from his weapon it could kill you in one shot.
get far away and aim your dynamite bow at one of the geysers on the floor, practice timing it right so that when magruder walks onto the geyser the dynamite explodes and the geyser erupts, if you get this right his health goes down in huge chunks and it will only take about 4-5 hits to get to the next part.
tips: there are health and arrow respawns at either end of the cave, be near an arrow respawn whilst practicing timing the arrow shots.
stay low and out of his range, the big rock in the middle can be jumped through or over but magruder cannot do this, so use it to your advantage.
magruder moves randomly so make sure you are certain that he is going to walk onto a geyser before shooting the arrow, if you dont this could waste the ammo and the respawns arent there all the time! (about 30secs - 1min between respawn times).
use health respawns wisely, his shotgun can take the health bonus away in one hit.
part 2 of "killing magruder"
after you have taken enough of his health away with the "geyser trick", magruder decides to cheat a little and climbs onto a rockface at the front of the cave.
here it gets a little harder as you have alot of shooting to do and it takes quite a bit of skill. you can go anywhere in the cave to do this part but i find the easiest place is to crouch at the end of either one of 2 small rows of rock just in front of the rockface magruder is standing on:
