Well, you actully can kill monsters, but only in mods, custom storys like "pewdiepie's castle" (I just love backstabbing the grunt Tongue ), and like someone said in a previous post, disabled triggers.

RE: Can you kill monsters by swinging objects?

how many times do i have to hear the "can you kill monsters in amnesia?" question... NO you can not kill monsters! no matter what you trown them to the face they will not die... at least in the original amnesia you can't... so enough of this dumb questions.

They can be killed, they just don't have any death animation, so they just stand there in idle animation no longer with any collision (i.e. you can walk right through them). Enabling entity info even shows that the monster is in a dead state.

You don't have to throw anything at it to kill it, though. If there is something small that it collides with and collides with it constantly, the monster can end up killing itself. This is the easiest way to kill them, because it collides too fast for health regeneration to have any significant affect.

Well, actually, I've seen a bit of someone messing around with it... they found that he does have a death animation, and a rag-doll, but no true way to die... weird eh?

It's not weird when we consider the real facts:

RE: Can you kill monsters by swinging objects?

Even if you could kill monsters in Amnesia, I feel it would take away a lot from the game. Just like killing wolves in Penumbra Overture gave me a sense of ease knowing I could kill them with my pickaxe or a gas tank. Amnesia really ups your "gnawing on your fingernails till there's nothing left level" because there is no way to defend yourself. it's that feeling of helplessness that makes it even more scary.
