corruption question

How many energy tanks does one need to beat the final boss in corruption considering the whole atmosphere slowly kills you thing.

It's hard to say since using your weapons (especially the grapple) drains your level of corruption. You can't exactly sit there mashing A to stave it off since the rate of gain is generally higher than the rate of loss, but it does affect things to some degree. And obviously, if you don't get hit by any enemy attacks, you can last longer.

I'm not sure this is something that's been calculated, but I'm sure there are minimalist runs that have been made running on as few Energy Tanks as possible. I'm not sure it's possible with just one, or if it's even possible to collect only one. An interesting question, though I'm sure sequence breakers have given this scenario a bit of exploration.
You're only the best until someone better comes along. You're the first forever.

This (assuming you're right) confirms my suspicions about expelling phazon slows the gain of it. Thanks for responding

I had the same question some time ago, this is the new answer. :!:
