This is mentioned in the Walkthrough forums by EverStoned77 but I haven't seen it anywhere else so I'm posting here because of how helpful it was for my Survivor play through.
Anyone who's played a couple episodes of this game knows how scarce resources can be, specifically bullets and especially on Survivor difficulty so when you finally get the bow in Episode Nine - Henry's
, the game's combat sequences will get significantly easier because you can retrieve your arrow (as long as you hit someone/somewhere within reach) essentially making it a weapon with unlimited ammo!
To make this even better, in Episode Eleven - Radio Haventon - Part 2
, there is an exploitable glitch (that still works when online as of 04/2017
) where you can spawn a 2nd arrow effectively turning all enemy encounters in the second half of the game, especially when confronted with 1 and/or 2 armoured guys, into a walk in the park when you have 2 retrievable arrows:Important:
When attempting this glitch, it's important that you remain undetected while aiming at and
killing the first enemy on the boat around the far corner of the cabin... staying on the catwalk and to the very left of it helps you get a better angle on the guy. This glitch will not work if you have been detected (you'll know if you get detected because 2 enemies will come out of the doorway in the middle of the cabin). Luckily, this is at the very beginning of the episode so if you are detected, just keep reloading the episode until you are successful.
With this trick/glitch, I managed to successfully get all the game's achievements on 1 play through whilst on Survivor difficulty ending the game with an extra 13 bullets for the pistol and 1 round for the shotty as well as the following resources:Please note
