The Centaur is an enemy in Serious Sam 2.
The Centaur is a native of the planet Ellenier. Mental found them and was impressed by their unusual male-dominated society, but he throught they looked like pansies, so he took them, gave them some war paint over their bodies, and gave them a bow and arrow and shield. After being certified, they are allowed to go onto battlefields.
He has two attacks; shooting an arrow and a melee attack.
- The Centaur has low health, but appears at distances, so long range weapons like the RAPTOR Sniper Rifle work best against him. One Sniper shot will kill a Centaur, no matter the difficulty level.
- His arrows can be dodged by simply strafing in a direction. Even groups of Centaurs can be made harmless by strafing in one direction.
- When mixed with other enemies, the Centaur poses little threat to the player. Their arrows are easy to dodge when trying to avoid other enemy projectiles, and their low health makes them easy to quickly take down if the player has a moment to spare. They are not a priority target in a firefight.
