    first complete the game on any difficulty (shouldn't take too long but they do not stack so you have to complete it on every difficulty). once you have done one play through you can choose any level and any chapter, and there's a nice little glitch for all these difficulty achievements. you only have to complete the last part of every level in order. so choose the first level and then the last part, then do the same for the second and so on and then ta da! achievment unlocked. then just repeat the same steps for whatever difficulty your missing.

    for people who are struggling with the final boss, there is an easy way to beat him. you need to start off as normal and deactivate the laser. but instead of going into the centre with summers, go back to the higher ground before that. then all you need to do is just move forward so you can only just see summers head above the floor. that way you can just shoot him in the head while he shoots the floor. it may take about 4 or 5 clips to kill him but you probably won't even get hurt. i'll provide a video when i make one, if this descriptions hard to follow just send me a message.

    GottleI killed him standing on the orange glowing ramp that leads to the centre.
    I don't know if it's what you suggested, but worked great! smile

    Did what Gottle did and worked like a charm. The AI pathfinding in this game can be a joke sometimes.laugh

    You can complete all difficulty levels once you have completed the game by just completing the last chapter on each Act.

    This means you must do 6 chapters on Hard, one of them being the final boss battle.

    All but Act 2, maybe Act 3 and Act 6 are easy to complete on Hard if you have completed Normal.

    Some people say you must complete the very first chapter on Hard, but I didn't need to, but if you want to be sure you can.

    An important thing to note is they must be done in Order, if you do any chapter out of order the achievement WILL NOT unlock. Some claim that the order does not affect unlocking, but I have heard more than a few people state the order is important so I would not risk playing missions out of order.


    The same applies to Casual and Normal if you need them. But you must have completed the game once to do this trick so you most likely need Casual and Hard.
