New to game, whats the optimal build? I was planning on a steady sniper with a x10 scope and fire resistance, how will this fair against the end game bosses?

Meta shift

The meta right now is more favorable towards minmaxing high/low water resists. Stack high water resist (blue sidechains) on the outside of your builds to tank for your orange residues. That'll net you a good amount of points for durability for your builds. This works on mostly everything all the way through end-game, though you're gonna have to watch out if you're up against a transmembrane boss, where the blue tank meta doesn't apply.

(In all seriousness I'm probably one of the only people here who 'gets' this joke post)

Indeed, I didn't get anything from the initial post and from your reply. This said, your "battle" view might be inspiring for good folding. :)

Foldit allows LUA add-ons (Recipes):

Like World of Warcraft, Foldit lets players use
LUA scripts to make add-ons (here called Recipes):
Some crush or kill voids, some jolt the protein,
and others cause protein quakes. Watch out for
ones like The Hedgehog, Banded Worm Pairs,
Mutators, Walkers, HBuster, and Fracture.

Tips for new players:

New players should start with the Intro/Tutorial Puzzles:
then do as many Beginner Puzzles as you can:

You can post questions and screenshots
to Global Chat for help as you go.
It helps to stay logged in until someone
notices your questions and writes back.

Good luck!

dubious original post

Don't know how others feel, but I'm getting a little grumpy about posts like this one. There's no evidence that the original poster, Amnesia, has ever played the game, and obviously the post is a joke, at best.

It's nice to see constructive replies, but deleting off-topic posts like the original makes more sense to me.

The annoyance factor is increased by several outright spams in the past couple of days. These have been dealt with.
