** The hammer-spinning Gasbags. They're tougher than all but the biggest gasbags, have a huge hit radius because they spin, and you can't counter them like other enemies, just block them. They also give you very little time to use melee after they stop spinning.

* GameBreaker: Werewhiskey, which gives 100% critical hit chance at 33% health. Combine this with Lifewine and Bull Brandy to maximize your survivability and it doesn't matter that you're constantly at critical health, because almost nothing in the game will live long enough for it to matter. This is especially true in the weapon challenges, which become much easier simply by falling off the edge enough to activate Werewhiskey's effect.

** The Scrap Musket with increased knockback and double tap mods becomes a wonderful tool for knocking any damn thing that isn't rooted to the ground off the nearest ledge. Perfect for the Who Knows Where challenges.

* EightPointEight: Jim Sterling's infamous review, which gave it a 6.5, a stark contrast with the game's otherwise positive reviews.

Added DiffLines:

**However, clever use of Spirits can make some of the more difficult Proving Grounds much easier; notably, the Bullhead Shield trial can be made easier using Lunkhead Liqueur (to return more damage when blocking with the shield), and any trials where dealing damage is an integral key to success (such as the Fang Repeater or Dueling Pistol trials) can be beaten more easily by equipping Werewhiskey and purposefully dropping to less than 33% health.

** On the flip side, once you've gotten good at counter blocking, Mender Mead becomes an excellent secondary method of regaining health, especially when you start doing idol runs with Roathas invoked, which makes Health Tonic drops much rarer (and flat-out non-existent in Who Knows Where.)

** On Using Leechade lets you heal by attacking enemies, but reduces the flip side, once you've gotten good at counter blocking, Mender Mead becomes an excellent secondary method effectiveness of regaining health, especially when you start doing idol runs with Roathas invoked, your Life Tonics...unless you're also using Bastion Bourbon, which makes Health Tonic drops much rarer (and flat-out non-existent lets you heal to full with Life Tonics and cancels out Leechade's detrimental effects. This was eliminated in Who Knows Where.)later releases, however.

* GoddamnBats: Squirts and Peckers are swarming weaklings that usually act as distractions for bigger enemies to clobber you. Miniature Rattletails also count.

Peckers are far worse because Squirts are easily countered to death, while the bog-standard Peckers aren't (and the charging Peckers have an unusual timing to their counters that takes a bit to get used to, all while they're carving huge chunks out of your health.)

Added DiffLines:

* EnjoyTheStorySkipTheGame: Most of the game's critical attention was focused on its art style, storytelling and narration. The gameplay received a more mixed reception.
