3. Story walkthrough
You're going to want to start by beginning a new game on Normal mode. You'll net your first achievement by doing so.
Start a new game for the first time. (any difficulty setting)
Then, these next few are all story-progression. You can't miss 'em. But as you play, try to save your White Gems up. You'll need 300.
During this long run of story progression, try to stun enemies and use your "Brutal Kills" on as many enemies as possible. Just keep doing it. Hit them with a light shot, run up to them, and press X.
Also aim for a Demon's legs as often as possible. If you can reduce them to a crawl, use the X button execution option that pops up to stomp on them. You'll want to try to do this 10 times.
Story Progression in Act 1 - Chapter 1 (any difficulty setting)
Story Progression in Act 2 - Chapter 1 (any difficulty setting)
George will charge you and break various stands around the area. Simply lead him towards barrels of light, destroy them to stun him, and hit his exposed weak spot. Eventually he'll steal a goat head and hit somewhere. Find him as quickly as you can, blast the goat, and repeat the entire thing over until he's defeated. If you are struggling to find the goat head, look up to the sky and you should see a red beam of light going straight up. Use that as a compass to navigate towards George.
Story Progression in Act 2 - Chapter 2 (any difficulty setting)
At this point you'll unlock the TEETHER. Use it as much as possible, and attempt to get 20 kills with it before 3-3, as that's when it becomes the TEETHGRINDER, and you will have to wait until your next playthrough to have access to the TEETHER again.
Defeat 20 enemies with the TEETHER
Then, keep playing to advance the story, and get:
Story Progression in Act 2 - Chapter 3 (any difficulty setting)
During that above chapter, 2-3, you will encounter a sushi-light for the first time. It will force 3 demons back into a row of light barrels. Shoot the barrels to obtain the following.
Defeat 3 enemies at once using the Barrels of Light
This is a bit complicated. George's horse will defecate darkness. You have to stand behind it when it does, that way you can hit his weakspot from the dark core that is formed. After that he will fall onto the ground and you can attack his horses stomach. Then he'll leap onto the fountain, and you'll be able to unload on his horses stomach some more.
Eventually he will become a giant. Just unload on all his weak points. When you destroy one of his weak points, he will be stunned and fall down. Use this time to go behind him and take out the harder to reach spots on his back and elbows.
Eventually he'll urinate in a fountain, creating darkness. Quickly blast his stomach, which should be bursting with tentacle-like growths. Once he's dead, these next achievements will pop.
Story Progression in Act 2 - Chapter 4 (any difficulty setting)
Just a note on Chapter 3-1, after a boss fight with a beserker (One of the fast enemies with sawblades and a weak spot on its back) to progress you will need to use a light shot on the goats head which is all the way up on the bell. Once you shoot it, the bell will drop down and destroy the church floor providing you with an exit.
More story progression ahead, but first, a boss fight. You fight the first Sister Grimm. Wait for her to cast darkness and then shoot her with the light shot. This will expose her weak spot, so just go all out on her. If you are struggling to get the light shot in quick enough, remember you can always shoot the goat head for some breathing room.
Defeat Maras Grim (Sister Grim) Boss
Story Progression in Act 3 - Chapter 1 (any difficulty setting)
If you saved your gems, you should have also gotten the next achievement by now.
Save more than 300 White Gems in your inventory
And if you've been stomping a few heads in you should have this one too.
Defeat 10 enemies with the Stomp Attack
Also, if you've stunned a few enemies with your light shots, you may have picked this one up.
Perform all 5 brutal kills on Normal Demons frozen by the Light Shot
If you missed any of these, keep trying as you go. It's not too hard to pick those three up, and you're going to have plenty of chances. I just recommend picking them up early on. The sooner you start to focus on them, the better.
Then, once you've squared those away, it's back to story-progression.
Story Progression in Act 3 - Chapter 2 (any difficulty setting)
The second Sister Grimm switches things up a little, when she casts darkness she will also clone herself. You can use the lightshot on every clone until you hit her, however you can see which one she really is by the glowing red point on her chest. Once you hit the correct copy, it will stun her and expose her weakspot where you can go nuts.
Defeat Kauline Grim (Sister Grim) Boss
By now, you should have gotten the upgrade to the HOTBONER and the TEETHGRINDER. So start killing every enemy you meet with each one. After you kill 20 with each you'll get...
Defeat 20 enemies with the HOTBONER
Defeat 30 enemies with the TEETHGRINDER
While going for your 20 HOTBONER kills, try to get 5 perfect headshots in a row. The first and only bullet to hit that enemy has to be a headshot. You'll know you've done it right if you see things slow down and zoom in on the head exploding. Do it right 5 times in a row, and you'll net the following.
Perform 5 Head Shots in a row with any weapon except Big Boner
More story-progression ahead:
Story Progression in Act 3 - Chapter 3 (any difficulty setting)
A note for chapter 3-3 when you have a character chase you, make sure you kill all the enemies as quickly as possible to force the key to drop. If she begins to get close try to circle around her and pop shots off at the enemies. Once you have the key, head for the door.
Following this, there will be a cut scene with a demon named Elliot who yells some rather colorful things at you. Another demon hunter will inturrupt you and take him on, so you won't actually fight him at this point. Directly after this cutscene, you will encounter a large group of normal demons. They'll be coming through a fairly narrow passageway, so equip your HOTBONER and charge up a sticky bomb (its secondary fire). Kill 5 at once, and you'll get the following, but if not, you'll have two more playthroughs to try this again.
Defeat 5 enemies at once using the Hot Boner
More story related achievements coming up after that, but a note about "Annoying Mosquito" first: Stick close to the beginning of the road you fight Elliot on. You'll find that he will usually repeat the same attack pattern of lashing his tongue out over and over. If you move farther up, he may change things up by throwing feathers at you that cause darkness to envelope you. Destroying the feathers destroys the darkness, so hit them with a light shot.
Once you destroy the first weak spot and both his wings he'll land in front of you. When he does, hit him in the crotch with a light shot to reveal a weakspot. Destroy this weak spot, and he's done.
Story Progression in Act 3 - Chapter 4 (any difficulty setting)
For the next achievement, you'll find yourself on a roof with a temporary upgrade to Johnson that lets him become the BIGBONER. Just line up 5 headshots on the big creatures walking through the city, and you'll earn the following achievement. You'll know that they're headshots if you see the creature throw its arms partway up and fall down to the ground. Just as I pointed out before, it must be the first and last shot that hits that enemy to count as a headshot.
Perform 5 headshots in a row with the BIG BONER
Then it's more story related things.
Story Progression in Act 4 - Chapter 1 (any difficulty setting)
Story Progression in Act 4 - Chapter 2 (any difficulty setting)
This sister is a bit different. Hit her face enough times and she'll turn on the darkness. Hit her stomach after that and she'll turn it off. Rinse and repeat. It's pretty straightforward. Just dodge her attacks for a while. Ocassionally she will summon demons to help her but its best to simply ignore these guys and dodge them.
Then, after you defeat her, you'll continue with story progression.
Defeat Giltine Grim (Sister Grim) Boss
Story Progression in Act 4 - Chapter 3 (any difficulty setting)
Story Progression in Act 4 - Chapter 4 (any difficulty setting)
Story Progression in Act 4 - Chapter 5 (any difficulty setting)
Aim for Justine's red bulbs first, all while dodging the green fire in the sky. If you need to, you can shoot the fire balls to disperse them. After a while, her bulbs will burst and you'll see a gold outline around her mask. Unload light shots into it until it's destroyed. Finally, you'll see her face. She'll grab you and move you around, but just keep unloading into her face. The boss has a lot of health so hang in there and keep shooting her.
She'll eventually shrink down and fall away, after which she will become inexplicably nude. Following this fight, you will get these two achievements.
Story Progression in Act 4 - Chapter 6 (any difficulty setting)
Story Progression in Act 5 - Chapter 1 (any difficulty setting)
Story Progression in Act 5 - Chapter 2 (any difficulty setting)
Story Progression in Act 5 - Chapter 3 (any difficulty setting)
Fleming is a bit of a pain. But he's doable. It boils down to dodge rolling away from him when he attacks, and unloading into him when he doesn't. Watch out for Paula, who he will occasionally use as a shield. Hitting her is game over.
While he is fairly easy on normal difficulty, hard difficulty can bring another dimension into the fight. The fight is broken down into three stages, in each you must end by shooting a bodypart with the machine gun locked on.
Now, to get him to seperate you must first deal enough damage to him. Once he brings up his green barrier, shoot the skull through to stun him and then explode a hot boner shot on his chest. If he doesnt split up, then you havent done enough damage to him before he brought up his green shield.
Once he has split up, shoot the respective bodypart with the machine gun.
Story Progression in Act 5 - Chapter 4 (any difficulty setting)
Now we get into spoiler territory. You've been warned.
You'll be greeted by some fake credits before being launched into a boss fight with Paula. Grab the key and start working your way round the doors till you find the door for the key.
Use the DENTIST to lock onto her wings and take her down. After a bit, you'll change rooms. But just keep ignoring most enemies and aiming for her. Defeat her, and she'll lay on the ground. Approach her and press X to finish the game and get the following achievements.
Story Progression in Act 5 - Chapter 5 (any difficulty setting)
Complete all chapters on Medium difficulty setting
Congrats. That's 1 third of your playthroughs done. Take a break. Feel free.
You're good? Good. Let's start on hard mode.
On this playthrough you will want to get the following:
It's easier to get these on your second time through. It makes it easier to focus on your other weapons during your first run, and you'll need to use your shotgun/machine gun more on Hard mode anyway.
Defeat 30 enemies with the SKULLCUSSIONER
Defeat 50 enemies with THE DENTIST
Defeat 50 enemies with the SKULLBLASTER
Defeat 40 enemies with the SKULLFEST 9000
While using the machine gun, aim for the legs/waist and unload on some enemies. Eventually, with a little luck, you'll manage to nab this difficult little achievement.
Perform a Head Shot right after a Leg Mutilation when the enemy is flying back in the air
You'll get this when you beat the game on Hard.
Complete all chapters on Hard difficulty setting
Feeling ok? That's 2 thirds. We have a few last little things to take care of. And that's easy to do in easy mode.
First things first, you'll want to wait until you have 3 drinks. Then chug them back to back. Mash LB. Once you drink all 3, you will get the following. The reason you waited until now is so that you wouldn't miss those health items as much. You're less likely to need them on easy.
Knock back 3 drinks in a row
You'll want to get the "High in Las Vegas" achievement during this run as well. I will post video guides to help you along. Just remember to spend every penny on red gems, collect all of the hidden ones, and you'll be fine. All credit for the videos goes to Brownman.
If you feel that you are going to come up short, then there are a couple of places for you to grind:
- The big head minibosses that spawn enemies in the graveyard and sewer
- 3-2 In the swamp there are infinite spawning enemies
Recover all available Red Gems in the game.
After you get every gem just finish the game. You'll get your last achievement by doing so.
Complete all chapters on Easy difficulty setting
And that's it. All 50 achievements. It only took 3 playthroughs and a little effort. You only had to go through hell to do so.
