Are you serious? You must be if you are going for this achievement.

Serious difficulty can be played at anytime, but be warned, its HARD. Enemies hit REALLY, REALLY hard (Kleers for example deal 50 points of damage), and there are more of them. Here are some tips:

- You have double the ammo as in other difficulties (except Tourist). This means ammo pick ups give you double the ammo as well (100 MG bullets instead of 50, for example). This makes it less likely to run out of ammo at the most inoportune time.

- You won't be as SERIOUS if you do it, but you can turn on "Unlimited Ammo" if you wish. This DOESNT affect your achievement, but it does affect my opinion of you and your gaming skills.
(Thanks Enemy of Godd)

- Save the Serious Bombs! You can hold a whopping 6 in Serious difficulty, and these should only be used in a failsafe or "OH SHIT OH SHIT OH SHIT" situation. They're hard to come by!

- SAVE OFTEN. The Y button saves the game at ANY TIME. Abuse it. Also, if you're like me and still don't like to save, turn on "Autosave" in the Game Options," so you don't lose progress.

- SECRETS! Be careful with these, as the clever bastards at Croteam inserted "secrets" that often translate to "death trap." You could get a Cannon, or a giant Kamakazi blowing up in your face. Consult this for locations:

- DONT fall for obvious traps, if you can help it. In level three for example, there's a minigun in one of the areas. BUT if you found the secret minigun in level one, you have no reason to get it. You just avoided a gunfight. Congrats.

- There are a SET NUMBER OF ENEMIES per level. Push B and under "statistics" it tells you, under "kills." (Example, Level 3 has 616 enemies on Serious).

- Oh, and you have to do it solo. Yeah, sorry about that.
