Area-spoilers and shop-spoilers incoming, care :p.

I just tried a new way to rob shops that wasn't in the wiki, and it's amazingly great. Pasting it here :

"There's a relatively easy way to rob a store on Area 2, and even steal the shopkeeper's shotgun, without angering the shopkeeper or raising your wanted level. Stun a Man-eating Plant, take it up and bring it in the shop. There, drop it on the ground facing the shopkeeper, and get out of the shop. Wait for the shopkeeper to get eaten, he will drop his shotgun. Quickly reap all the loot and get out of the shop. On the next level, no shopkeeper will be angry at you. "

The shopkeeper will still run after you if you stay close, but without getting angry. Possibly just to get his shotgun back.

The fact that you aren't wanted with this method, and get the shotgun, is especially great. Plus, there's man-eating plants on every Area 2 level, so you can probably make it on any area 2 shop. Be careful not to hit the shopkeeper with the stunned Man-eating Plant though, which would of course anger him.

Edit : The plant actually need to have at least 2HP (out of 3) for this to work, so hit it only once.

You should be able to feed the plant someone else to knock it out too, that way he would be at full health. Also, you say "pasting here", did you find this on another site? You may want to cite the source, not necessary but nice.

Hahaha, been there. I figured blasting near point blank range at the plant with a shopkeeper inside would kill them both. I figured wrong...

That's hilarious (as long as it's not happening to you), to repent I must now attempt to die in this manner.

Put it on you tube.

(It doesn't matter as I died like 15 secs from starting I started in the 2nd area to test this out)

Oops, forgot to mention that. I meant I discovered it by play-testing, then realized it wasn't on the wiki, added it myself to the wiki and copy-pasted it here.

I have noticed that when you throw a breakable object at the shopkeeper, he get stunned. (pot/skull)

That may work so you can get his shotgun and quickly blast him.

One thing wrong with that:
  • There could be a spider in the pot.
  • There could be a snake in the pot.
  • The shopkeeper could get up before you get even close.
  • The shotgun falls right on the shopkeeper, so even if you get it you'll get thrown, then blasted. (In that order)
