Not sure how much he carries. Depends if he has prep time and knows what he's facing or if he just has his standard equipment. He could make walls of ice using his liquid-nitrogen capsules and just enclose himself so they can't get to him and just sit there. Also you have to take into account like Spetnaz said. Batman has faced these things before and is the only one on the team who knows what he's dealing with.
Doubt it would work though. Because I think most of us agreed it was a boomtube that teleported him to the Batcave or the Watchtower and in this threads stipulations you can't leave. But he's still the only one that has one.
Do not for one moment think that I was discrediting Castle. No way no how. The hombre is extremely capable, and if you check my post i was not belittling his abilities.
As for the stealth part, i was not talking about him as a person, but on the matter of his guns giving him away. The moment he fires the first bullet he basically sets of a ricocheting sound wave that is a major signal to all Aliens within a certain radius, and that is what i meant by him starting a timer the moment he engaged an alien.
Furthermore, look at the weapons you listed. You stated that he has dual pistols with hi-cap mags. Cool ....but those are two handguns with a maximum number of bullets of 84 bullets. If each bullet was assured of a kill that would be nice, but it will take much more than one small caliber bullet to take an Alien down.
You also listed that he packs an Uzi ....nice gun, but its rate of fire is obscene. Too fast (which is why the Israelis, who developed the gun, stopped using it quite some time back). A full burst fire from an uzi would be over in about 4 seconds .....and using an uzi is short-burst fashion is alright against humans, but the uzi (and the MP5) pack pistol bullets so semi fire against a xenomorph wouldn't be too good. An uzis range is not great, its accuracy is questionable, and its redeeming value is that it can put a lot of bullets down range in a short time ....but that 'value' is also one of its bigger issues, because it runs out quick. Not something you want in a situation where murderous aliens are closing in.
The M-16 (and its derivatives) is a good weapon .....but its 5.56mm rounds will require a number of shots to kill a Xeno, and it is loud (and you did not include a sound suppresor) .....Castle better be able to change those clips at Flash speed, because once he starts firing within a couple of minutes he will face many Aliens.
As for total ammo ...he has 84 bullets max for his handguns, he has 120 bullets for his uzi (or alternately his MP5), and he has 120 5.56mms for his assault rifle (in this case M-16,M-14 or AR-15). That is a total of 324 bullets.
Assuming that it takes 12 handgun bullets to kill an Alien (a very optimistic scenario, but let me give Castle the benefit of a doubt), 12 uzi bullets to kill an Alien (Uzis and MP5s use handgun bullets ....with similar range and power ....it is just that they have a higher cyclical rate of fire), and that it takes 8 rifle bullets to kill an Alien (since the 5-56 have a faster speed and a higher kinetic load at impact) ....that would mean that Castle kills 7 Aliens with his handguns (both of them), kills 10 alines with the Uzi, and kills 15 Aliens with his M-16.
That is a total of 32 Aliens.
Now, he has two throwing knives and a battle knife ....let's assume he kills an alien with each, meaning 3 more dead.
That is 35.
Then he has his grenades .....say he kills 3 with each (assuming he has 10 grenades ....which is a really optimistic scenario ....and let us also assume he doesn't get splattered ...and that the Aliens are nicely bunched) ....well, that is another 30 dead .....
......to bring a total of 65 killed.
Guess what ....Frank is out of ammo, out of knives, and relying on ONLY his natural senses to know if Aliens are coming .....and there are 35 Aliens left out there ....and the ones that just died regenerated.
As for the knives being compared to batarangs
Yep ....he has two knives, and his encounter with BullsEye shows he can throw them quite well. But 2 knives are not comparable against Batarangs ....unless you are simply looking at the 'shuriken' throwing batarangs. Batman carries much more than those .....check his past encounters against Aliens, or the ones he used to take down DoomsDay clones. I'd say more than your typical throwing knife.
Batman carries more than one type of batarang.
I never said Batman would make it out of this using batarangs, bolos, or whatnot .....for that matter Batman wouldn't be engaging this things unless he has to (he has past experience with them ....successful past experiences). Also, he would be able to detect them very well ....as shown in the past, again against Aliens .....using the various spectral configurations in his cowl.
And as for Batman's stealth .....in the past he has managed to get next to Superman without Kal even hearing his hearbeat ....something in the suit.
Anyways, i am not knocking on Castle. And that is why on my first post i emphasized that saying Beast wins didn't mean that I am saying he is superior to all other characters, or that saying Batman easily outsurvives Captain America doesn't mean that I am implying Steve is useless .....what it means is that in this PARTICULAR situation certain characters have innate advantages while others have disadvantages (e.g. Captain America's attack style and shield wouldn't be effective here).
you're starting to sound like battlehammer now, man
why are you taking it so personally anyway? i don't care if frank doesn't make it. i just think he's got a better chance that throwing batarangs around and staying to the shadows (which happen to be the places where xenomorphs stay anyway). exploding batarangs....i'll give you that much, but how mnay does he have? 10? 20?
compare that to the regular weaponry of Frank that i mentioned a while ago.
yes they do. only they aint "low-calibre". the lowest calibre that frank had is a .45 and in aliens2 we've seen them being killed by a sinlge 9mm to the head. so yes, they do have an effect
as i said above.....xenomorphs can be killed with a 9mm to the head. and were shown too.
agreed. but i did already proove that one round from a 9mm is enough to kill a xenomorph. as for everything else you said, yeah its true, and imagine how convenient it would be for frnak if he had to shoot many of them. uzi'd be a great help if they come in numbers.
and let me concede this now: batman has better chances than i originally said. sorry for underestimating the bat.
P.S. iceman, you can stop your transformation into battlehammer now j/k
Not sure if the Vibranium suit will withstand the acid. If it holds I like T'Challa's chances. And that thing about T'Challa not making any noise. Yautja don't make any noise when they move around and Xeno's still find them.
Contrary to my initial reaction, I think Castle would not last very long. At least, not utilizing the tactics that a lot of people here have him using. If Castle were to engage in a firefight, he'd definitely take a lot of them out, but there is no limit to the Aliens in this scenario. If Castle makes a huge fracas, he's going to draw all the damn Aliens to him. He's better off using weapons as a last resort and using stealth. I don't doubt he'd have an easier time taking down ten aliens charging at him down a hallway, but when you have 100 Aliens who find out where you are, because you're making such a commotion... well then... you;'d be screwed unless you had unlimited firepower. And Punisher can only carry so much with him.
I give this scenario to Black Panther. While Daredevil would be #1 in terms of senses, Black Panther is tied at #2 with Beast maybe. And he has got better survivability with his armor and agility, has a near 6th sense about danger and is the most accomplished hunter here. I'd also put him at #1 or tied at #2 for stealth with Batman. And he's probably carryin some gadgets around.
Cap... well he could kill the Aliens with a shield toss decapitating them or making them bleed acid on each other... but his shield would be covered in the gunk eventually.
