Am I the only one that got bored of seeing Palace Guards? I know they are bad ass but where were the Bolters and cyclops, etc? I saw a few Grenediers, a fair amount of therons. I don't remember seeing a single locust miner either?

Also, not a single normal Berserker in campaign? I kept waiting to see it happen, but no :(

And Kantus, i just don't feel like there was enough of them :p

I know it sounds like I'm complaining, but I'm not. I love the game to death, I just wish there were more variety of enemies over all. I feel like after the savage locust part, (which was like Act 2?) All i fought was Palace guards. And I felt like all the really exciting fights were from a higher view point. Like after your barge crashes outside Anvil Gate, you stand on the platform over looking the battlefield and just shoot down at everything for like 15min. I would have much preferred to be on ground level with them and feel that sense of approaching danger as the locust loomed in on me. But instead i felt like I was on the side lines. :p

i get where ur coming from. I felt that there were too many palace guards for my liking as well. Like you though im not complaining cause i also love the game. But keep in mind they're queen myrrahs guards so thats why u see more of them as opposed to
savage locust and what not

Yeah, I know before the game came out I was disappointed to hear that Queen's Guards weren't playable characters. But after playing through the campaign, I honestly don't care to see another one.

Also:

THERE'S NO MORE PALACE, WHY ARE THEY CALLED PALACE GUARDS?

Yea, the whole thing was nothing but Lambent and Palace Guards. Definitely needed more Locust

The only beserker I can recall is the glowing one that you had to shot in the stomach.

I kinda agree with you.. I find it much more fun to fight Locust than Lambent.. Them damn drudges..

well we did keep saying that we wanted to see more of the Palace Guards...

So we got 'em

Plus how frustrating was those armoured Kanti every time I encountered them I had no frags..

Like nashty said, it probably pertains to the fiction, which I really love.

If it fits within the fiction, I prefer that route, instead of squeezing it in just for the sake of gameplay.

Same reason I loved the fact that boomers and the other boss locust were just mixed in seamlessly with the other Locust forces, instead of being a big deal.

You do encounter the odd snipers etc...

What I do find weird, SPOILER ALERT, is that you do see a lot of different kinds of Locust in the ending cutscene, like Spotters and Drones. Also, in one of the later Acts, you will find a dead drone while there are only Palace Guards around those parts...

I also found it a bit of a bummer that there were only palace guards, savages and Lambent.
