Red Queen needs Nerfing.

So, I'm a casual player, I don't play on the hardest difficulty cause I want to experience the game in a more chilled out way. I love this game, it's amazing but when I got to the last boss, that's when I was like 'wtf'. I embraced like 20 citizens (lol) because I didn't want to struggle or do any side goals such as not killing a civvy. The game even tells us that the more we embrace, the easier the game will be. What they didn't mention was that it's only like that until you get to the Red Queen Avatar since her strength scales with how many people you embrace. I'm about level 37. This b**** was level 51! She destroyed me in like 5 hits and my abilities (Which were maxed out i.e. Abyss) did close to nothing to her. I looked up videos and read on other sites and even respecced my skills but she's too powerful for me. Furthermore, what they need to do is allow you to keep your syringes if you die because it proves to be a waste of time and resources when she out-of-nowhere decimates me.

Ultimately I feel she needs to be nerfed for the sake of players like me as I don't want to stress myself with an enemy that's 14 levels above me however I'm desperate to get to the end and finish this extraordinary game.

Hey there,

The syringes issue was addressed in the most recent patch, you will now be able to craft more than you can hold so that they auto-refill when you die.

The boss was slightly nerfed in the most recent patch as well, have you played since then?

Just saw your reply. I just tried and she's still level 51 for me and still demolishes me in 5 hits (I literally counted). It must just be how I'm fighting her however it shouldn't be this difficult and overwhelming (for casual peeps like me anyways). I recently read that they'll be introducing a 'Story Mode' dedicated to the Campaign this Summer so I'm banking on that and hope it's not another trick like the current difficulty system is now.


Yeah, we'll have a Story Mode this year, but you'll currently need to restart the game to be able to use it.

Pfft I'd rather do that tbh than try, try, try, try and try and stress myself out over it. Thanks for the response!
