Some might be wondering what exactly the difference is between the Survival game mode and the "AKUMU" difficulty. I was streaming and I had this question so it occurred to me that this might not be obvious to some.

As per the name this roughly translates to "worst nightmare" you die in 1-hit from ALMOST everything. I'll get into that in one second. There are more enemies, more bear traps then you can count (mostly throughout boss fight areas, so look down), and everything is so fast you'll most likely need to change your pants multiple times and take some chill-pills after wiping the spittle from your screen. All enemies are also hyper-aware meaning that sneaking from anything less then 10 meters away their heads snap back so fast that they die from whiplash (no they don't really die... -_-) Their fields of vision are wider and their range of vision is a football fields. NOW the thing you DO live from is 1 animation. If your partner is around and he's not killing himself if you do get grabbed by an enemy with no weapon in hand and they throw you down to the ground you'll lose almost all your health but you will still be on the ground about to be stomped to death, if your partner saves you before the killing blow then you'll get back up with a small amount of health left, but if he doesn't you will still die when your head is stomped on.

This goes without saying here but medkits and syringes are useless, you can use them if you want but unless you live from the one instance that you can live from then there's no use for them.

I'm doing this with no upgrades and currently I'm on chapter 11 so I know that if you are using upgrades that this should be easier for you than it is/was for me. If I have a suggestion for you it would be to upgrade sprint time by a few seconds because it's either run or die in AKUMU.

EDIT: I did complete the game without upgrading. Chapter 6 (burning building) 10 (lots of bosses in a row) and 11 (door opening and closing multiple times releasing waves of enemies followed by the ride in the rail trolley) are the hardest three chapters. You CAN use keys to help yourself in this difficulty as well.

Good luck and try not to punch your walls.
