The reason I'm writting this is because it's not so obvious how to play scenarios in this game and it's nothing like the scenarios in World of Van Helsing: Deathtrap, in case that like me you've played that other game before this one. Besides, scenarios here are more difficult in the sense that your chances to die seem higher. You can die often even if you play with a level 60 char that was pretty solid during the campaign.

Select Single Player and then Scenario and you'll start at the Lair. To start the scenarios per se, you have to step on the teleportation device. Then a sort of map will appear. This map will have 6 photos/pics/images of areas, 2 of which show a hat and a question mark. Ignore these last ones. Also, ignore the percentage options on the bottom of the map. You can figure and use them later, if you want. Each of the remaining 4 images also represent a gametype.

For this achievement you simply need to succeed 20 times in an area/gametype, that is, succeed 20 times in any of the 4 images available for you to choose when you have a brand new/fresh map.

The gametypes are: Frenzy (kill 150 enemies in a limited given time), Clue Hunt (also limited time), Bounty (my favorite one, you just have to find the right boss and kill it), Treasure Hunt (find 5 treasure chests scattered around the map) and Domovoy Rush (find the little guys and kill them before they go down a hole and dissappear).

Some people like this last one, Domovoy Rush, but like I said, I prefer Bounty because there's just 1 (even if dangerous) boss and you can be done as soon as you find it and kill it. Try them and choose the one that feels best for you. You're going to need to successfully complete 20 scenarios in this way, so you'll get used to reroll new maps to look for the gametype you want. It's okay to die and respawn during a gametype, unless you're doing this achievement

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing IITough as a coffin nailThe Tough as a coffin nail achievement in The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II worth 46 pointsComplete a Scenario without dying.

or if you're playing one of the timed ones, just because on those you need to rush.

When you are done with a gametype, be it because you finished it or because you're giving up on it, to exit it is an action that's entirely up to you. You have to manually teleport back to the Lair (using the D-PAD UP button, holding it) after the brief message that pops in the screen (in case you succeeded or failed). The game will NOT automaticaly end it for you and take you back.

Once back at the Lair, go take a look at the map again and then press cn_X to "reroll" the map. An alert might pop at the screen, basicaly letting you know that starting a fresh map will erase your progress in the bar on the left side of the map. It doesn't matter. So, the bottom-line is, you'll refresh maps a lot, always looking for the game type you like the most and completing it over and over.

I tried my best to provide you with all the info needed for this and more. If any of it helps you unlock what you're looking for, consider leaving a thumbs up here to let me know. See ya.
