Keep trying, I remember I had the same problem at first, but you need simply be in the right distance, and then I think kind of look down on them at an angle, then you can hit them.

Youre not the first with that question.
Its been a long time, so Im not 100% sure. A logical solution would be to use your fists or feet to squash them. Hitting a bug with a sword can be tricky. Its possible though.

Like you said -> it's the distance to the meatbugs. It's different when you have a sword, are kicking or using your fists.

so very, very tired (Star Trek XI quote according to the Simpsons)

I recommend trying to use your fists to do it, it's much easier to him the bugs when you're not using a sword. I find it nearly impossible to hit them with a sword.

Correct, it was way easier with the fists.

You kick if you run forward and then attack while being unarmed. Basically, it's the unarmed version of the overhead swing that a lot of NPCs use when running around trying to hit.

If you are playing Gothic 1 try to use a 2-handed weapon. Especialy a pickaxe works very good.

WTF are you guys talking about? You can easly kill them with any sword. I agree that its a bit tricky to kill them wih no weapon but come on two handed weapons to kill meatbugs …. jeeez

The Gothic 2 controls are a bit better imo.(action is only the mouse button and not mousebutton+stepforward) The only that I didn't like in gothic 2 is the sell/buy system -> When you misclicked on an item, it will be bought/sold. That was one of the things I adviced for a change when KaiRo was at RPGDot for NotR.(you could ask him questions what would come in the addon, without him telling the story) I repeated the advice and luckily it was picked up for gothic 3.

I often had difficulties hitting the meatbugs because they were so much low to the ground.

This is the first time I read about kicking, besides, didn't know that.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)

it is kind of easy… after playing gothic so many times I just kill them with a sword in the first try… or the pickaxe…

and yes you can kick in Gothic (1 and 2 don't know for 3)

I'm always watching
