Under the Knife (Prototype)

From Atrocious Gameplay Wiki
Who the heck though that having a Player battle hords of tanks with no powers was considered a great idea?

Under the Knife is a mission in Prototype, depending on how the Player plays them, it can either the 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th or 13th mission in the game.

This level has been infamous by fans for its high difficulty, and is often considered as one of the hardest levels in the game.


In this mission, the Player needs to battle waves of tanks, all the while dealing with solders with rocket launchers and finding Zero.

Why This Mission Sucks

  1. You are force to play this mission with no super powers, which is always a bad sign.
  2. In this mission, Players have to destroy waves of tanks, which is easer said then done due to how Alex has no powers.
  3. In order to destroy the tanks, you have to posses a Solder and then high-jack a tank, which can be a HUGE pain as other tanks and/or rocket launcher solders can blast you off.
  4. Though out the stage there are horders of Hunters that will pester the Players, and there are in a swarm.
  5. Players have to destroy EIGHT tanks.
  6. In the last segment, you have to find and posses Zero in order to beat the stage, which can be tedious as there are enemies that can destoy the tank.
  7. To add salt to the wound, despite this missions high difficulty, this is a mission that is played MID-GAME.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The music that plays is great.
  2. This Mission has some interesting story moments.
  3. The atmosphere for this mission is incredible.
