Do Any Mobs Have Multiple Hurtboxes?

SirentistSirentist Posts: 9,086Member, Moderator, Arbiter
I'm probably imagining this, but sometimes seems to me that shooting at a brain lord from below (i.e., hitting the tentacles) deals slightly more damage than shooting it from above.

Anyone else?

I guess what I'm trying to ask is: does anyone know if there are any mobs in the game that have multiple hurtboxes?

    Perhaps there can also be critical hits too.

    Not sure if thats a thing however.

    Only one hitbox per mob.

    I would be cool if, say, an acid cannon would be effective when hitting a brain's tentacles, and a musket would be more effective than an acid cannon when hitting the tank.

    Hurtbox? Did you mean hitbox or did you just want to rename it? Lol

    Nomenclature depends on the developer, actually. In a lot of games they're the same thing. However in some games they're different. The hitbox is the part that will affect something else while the hurtbox is the area on you (or the other thing) that actually takes damage when under attack; they aren't necessarily the same thing. It sounds like in Deepworld those two areas perfectly coincide, though, so Mike doesn't need to use any other term besides hitbox.
