Top 10 Worst Bullet Sponges

We let Greg out of the video mines long enough to whip up the latest top 10. 


Bullet sponges make up a lot of our favorite shooters, but sometimes they are just the worst. This week we are going to count down the top 10 worst bullet sponges. Games mentioned include Zelda 2, Destiny, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, Dark Souls, Gear of War 4, Uncharted 2, Shadows of the Empire, Halo 3, The Division, and Deus Ex: Human Revolution. You will have to watch the video to see which bullet sponge took the top spot. Please take a look.

For more videos, including gameplay and interviews, visit the Shacknews and YouTube channels.

What are some bullet sponges that you think should have made our list? Let us know in the comments.

If you have a suggestion for a future episode of Shack's Top 10, please let us know in the comments section or tweet @shacknews & @GregBurke85 with #Top10.

      Totally agree with #1. Nonsensical bullet sponges.

      Good list, but I'm kinda surprised not to see Far Cry on there. The first time through UC1 when you meet up with the supernatural enemies it's like "okay, they took a page out of Far Cry's book".

        Far Cry 1 was what I was thinking about.

      Not really fair to include that Star Wars example in a top 10 list when that's completely, obviously not the intended way to deal with them. That's like complaining that a level 110 raid boss in WoW takes too long to kill with a level 1 stick.

      Division really isn't that bad. Bosses can soak it up, but most other enemies go down quickly with appropriate gear. If you're having a lot of sponginess it's time to go buy a new gun from a vendor if a good one won't drop for you.
