yeah that was mostly what effed me about receiving the GL so early on.....
that you could just straight-up murder that first shalrath so easily because you had the GL right away.
it takes the challenge out of the shalraths, if you can just spam them with grenades
regarding the water trap:
maybe you could move the water trap area in its entirety to later in the level and give the player the GL not to long before reaching the area?
