    Rounds 1-4 are always the same and follow standard European Knife Game rules.

    Round 5 however is randomized each time and unless you are Max Payne it will be too fast and complex for you to get in three tries. Counteract this by putting your left thumb on the start button and pressing start and A almost simultaneously (A needs to come slightly before start for this to work) so you can see where the next place you'll have to stab is.

    I tried to do this for 3 straight hours before looking for help, for your own mental health please please please do the above before anything else. (though this method does make this possible it more than quadruples the time it takes to finish the round and still demands all of your concentration)

    iTz Canada EhhGreat guide tried it normally and I'd end up messing up towards the end. Tried this method did it first try with no failures. Idk why people are bitching like using this method makes it easy enough for a kid to do it. It's your lack of skill if you can't do it using this method, not the developer or the creator of the solution or the company that makes your tv or anything else, just you.

    Shadow 00 FoxI might have to came back to this and try it again... and iTz Canada Ehh, you're a flat out IDIOT. A Stupid Idiot. There, that's what I feel about you for what you said about me. You don't know anything about my TV, and you assumed I wasn't good enough/smart enough/skilled enough... Get off your high horse and stop making dumb assumptions.

    DominusTenebraeThis solution is probably the best way for those still working on this game. I used a wired controller on an lcd screen with low latency to minimize the issues with lag. The wired controller I used had the start button below the left stick which made it more comfortable to hold than a standard wireless controller. I had more issues with stage 4 than 5. Got it on my third try.

    For the times the game had me moving from one finger to the very next I would hit A+start like a half second after unpausing the game. Waiting more or going to fast after pausing caused me to fail. The 1/2 second method worked perfectly for me. And turning off the sound as well.

    Thanks for posting this solution!!!

    I want to thank DesperadoRobert the other guys here who posted this solution. I pride myself on getting achievements honestly and fairly and usually walk away if I cant get them after a couple of hours. However after 3 hours I ready for the mental breakdown that DesperadoRobert spoke about. I carfefully read his solution and then went to a visual aid on youtube. This achievement is doable in about 10 mins if you get the first 4 down cold. I blew past them in less than 5 minutes then using Desperado's advice and some youtube video help I got this cheevy in 5 more mins. If your wondering why I wanted it so bad...well I am Private Hudson from aliens and bishop isnt going to get that knife game over on me, LOL. Thanks to the guy who posted this on youtube and and here is his link if your interested...

    Shadow 00 FoxNot working for me.. my tv has a slight bit of lag, when it's close together, the knife jumps after pausing and I simply can't press a + start fast enough, it'll hit the finger... I complete games, but this one. I'm at a loss of words on how stupid it is.

    To start, I would like to point out that this achievement is why this game is called "RAGE." It took me probably a total of one to one and a half hours of playing five fingered fillet to beat this. Your success is based on your strategy, concentration, reflexes, and a little bit of luck.

    Rounds 1-4 are always the same. If you spend maybe 10-15 minutes playing this minigame, you should be able to breeze through these rounds with very little difficulty.

    Round 5 is completely random and requires a great deal of skill to really get through in only a handful of tries. There are some people who are suggesting to use a method that involves pressing A immediately following opening the menu by pressing START. By doing this, you should be able to see the next spot you will be hitting light up as the menu opens. This, in my opinion, is a bad strategy to use for all three strikes; it will throw off your timing and ultimately result in pressing A too early or too late, especially if the next stab is right next you your previous one.

    Here is my strategy for Round 5:

    BEFORE YOU START: you should note where you are looking after every hit. You will always start with a hit behind the thumb, but you should always be looking at the spot immediately after the one you just hit. Since this is random, you will never know when you will be hitting the spot right next to your previous hit. For example, if you are moving left and hit the spot after the pinky, you should be looking at the spot to its right, in preparation for a close hit. It is also important to note (for this example) that you will once again be hitting the spot to the left of the pinky again, as you will always be alternating direction after a hit.

    Strike 1: Use the pausing method to get a feel for the round. For me this only earned me the first 4-5 hits before my timing got thrown off. By doing this, you are essentially trying to know what to expect as you go the second strike.

    Strike 2: Based on you performance in strike 1, you can either do the pausing method again, this time starting from around the place where you left off, or you can continue without it (if you feel you got enough of a feel for the round to get through most of what's left). If you are using the pausing method, the method is the same: try to keep your timing down and pay attention to what places you are hitting.

    Strike 3: After failing twice, you haven't accomplished nothing. You should have a pretty good idea of what to expect for this final strike. Part of this is luck, but most of it is what you learn in your previous strikes. If all goes well, congratulations! If not, you can always try again using my strategy. If you feel like it's not working for you, you can always modify what I've suggested or try someone else's idea. Good luck, and don't get too frustrated if it's taking a long time.

    I'm open to any suggestions in the comments below. If you feel I should change anything, I can add any new ideas to the solution and accredit any contributors.

    Killme37Thanks man. Used your strategy and got it in about 20 min without pressing start. You said it perfectly. Always look closely for the next hit.

    KirklessThis was by far and away the best tip for beating it. The start trick only screwed me up and made it harder. After nailing the first 4 multiple times and training my eyes to look on either side of the spot I just stabbed first, I was able to get this in about half an hour and it felt great. I also found it helped to count the stabs. For round 5, there were 32 stabs to pass the round. This helped me know when I was getting close. Hopefully this helps someone else.
