    POC's Rhinos : to shoot or not to shoot ?

      Does shooting the three rhinos you meet during your progress in POC helps for the escape?

      you can see one on the roof after the first barrier  , one after the second barrier and one in the cabin.

      if you shoot them , does it influence how many will spawn during the final run?

      in solo how many rhinos spawn at the end ? in some games it seems to spawn more than in other games..

          I was told relics that count more than 5 in total have an effect towards the end, I can't vouch for this theory but I can see the panic in players when they arrive , As for no relics amongst the team , straight forward  (shoot some then run), I mean I completed 1st attempt on POC with 1 friend and 2 other new bee randoms , I had no clue about challenges or skill points but kinda was guided by my mate.

          (I guess it depends if you want the platinum or maybe more points)

          I have no idea on the solo aspect , if you find some clue please reply as I will read it , I'm thinking soon when my arm is better I'll give solo an attempt

            They have no impact on the gameplay, so no, don't shoot any of them. It's much safer and after you picked up the money after each barrier hive, you should be full anyway ($3000 or $6000) so why do you need the $750 or $1000 for killing it?

              I Haven't noticed a difference in shooting them or not.. I just enjoying rushing up to get them before they leave ...

                I can't speak for hardcore, but in regular 2 spawn when you activate the nuke, 2 spawn when the 1st barrier drops. And then at least 2 more spawn (but unless you screw around, they can't touch you). Whether you kill the ones you come across or not, these appear to stay the same in all of my games.

                  One factor that determines the amount of rhinos that spawn in during the co-op gameplay is, if any player takes a down during the run to the chopper. For every down taken by a player another rhino spawns in.

                          Your welcome slyd0g55, this is what forums are for, help. Also, another factor I have noticed on several occasions is the amount of time you kill the first two rhinos with guns/turrets, not using the knife to make them a friendly has an affect on it. On 15-20 diffrent games I have recorded with my PVR downing the rhinos almost instantly (1min and change for both) with help of weapon specialist (not sure if thats a factor) causes another one to spawn in. As if to make up for the killing them so easily, it doesnt happen every time but I would say atleast 1/3 games if that is done, this situation might happen. No downs were taken during any of the 15-20 games I have recorded, I hope that also helps. URgodWILLcUsoon

                              On the escape - during the first barrier we usually take I think 4 of them out (1 Hypno knifed maybe) , then maybe 2 on the next barrier trying to run the time down before heading towards that barrier (usually clear by then) then the run towards the chopper - on a  4 player game, But I've taken your info in as well as some others who have replied.

                          I enjoy shooting the rhinos for a couple of reasons.

                           

                          1. They are an extra 1000 points, which has come in handy on a few games.

                           

                          2. If I'm playing with newbies, typically the only time they have experienced a rhino is during the fray of the cabin area.  This allows them to deal with a rhino in a controlled environment wherein it is the only enemy.  It helps them learn as to how much it takes to kill a rhino.

                           

                          3. Many players still have no clue you can get one after the first barrier hive.  People with mics give the funniest reactions!
