    Fly Swatter Achievement/Trophy

    This achievement/trophy is all about timing and can be pretty difficult. When following Marguerite through the tunnels you can open a shortcut back to the van here so feel free to make a save file before attempting this. Now enter the house in this area and you will come face to face with Marguerite and she is far from happy, but the goal here however is to damage her enough so she starts climbing over walls like a spider and shooting her out of the air while she pounces.

    Some notes:
    - The Flamer does heavy damage to her if you are running low on shotgun ammo.
    - You need the shotgun to knock her back.
    - She will appear above & below you so watch out.
    - The roof she crawls over is very low to the ground, a weird design choice on the part of the devs but try keep a little distance.
    - Before she is going to pounce she will stare at you for a few seconds, you can shoot her while in mid air or get lucky like I did in the video below and get her the second she was about to leave.
    - If you fail load up the save point or hit retry.
    - She does this 3 times during the fight, save point will work if you want more tries however.

    In the following video so you don't get confused I got her the second that she moved from the ceiling. Doesn't look it but watching frame by frame she had left

    amenazamenor JFYou don't need the shotgun to do this. I unlocked it using the flamethrower.

    Julz D 01Guys you need to hit her in mid air so that she falls down onto her back. Use the shotgun

    xXTawdryXxI didn't use the shotgun or the flamethrower. It works fine with the handgun.

    xXTawdryXxI did it without even trying or knowing that this achievement existed.

    Warrenator1707Hey guys after trying this over and over I managed to do it with the flamethrower (ran out of ammo with the shotgun and wanted to progress with the story). I basically just spammed her with the flamethrower until she tried to jump at me and it popped, might be easier for people to do it this way!

    local bellboyFor those with it not unlocking, I had to wait almost two hours for the kill enemy with a knife achievement to pop. I kept using just the knife all throughout the beginning area, and it finally unlocked randomly in the Old House. Might be similar with this one if you know you got it done correctly.

    For me, I knocked her back a few times but the one it unlocked on was when she fell on her back and squirmed just like in the video.

    Poia@warrenator1707 yours comment should be a solution! I didn’t get it with the shotgun despite she fall on her back. But with flamethrower worked fine and at first try! Thanks
