    In the normal course of play, you will probably only find one elite every other level or so, so this could take a while. However, if you're able to consistently make deep runs or complete the game, you'll find about 5 elites in the castle level guarding the three keys, and the final boss also spawns elites a couple times during the battle. Doing full game runs is how I unlocked this quickly.

    Nilic 1erIf not mistaken, when you play the game in hard/very hard/hardest, you may also encounter more and more Elite !

    E vee dubI keep replaying and grinding out the levels to get more orbs so I can purchase more upgrades. But I feel like I'm getting nowhere fast. Any suggestions on what upgrades I should purchase first?

    Doing this normally would take a while but thankfully there's a somewhat quicker way to do this with an item called Hunter's Grenade. You will need a couple of other things first.

    To begin, you need to unlock the Specialist's Showroom, which is done by giving cells (I'm not sure how many) to The Collector, who can be found in the little hub room you go to in between levels.

    Once you've unlocked it at the Collector, the next time you're in the Prisoners' Quarters, you should come across a section of the map with a locked door. The door has a switch on your side (it's not a puzzle to open), and a sign stating you're at the Specialists' Showroom. The Hunter's Grenade should be inside behind one of the gold doors once you purchased it.

    When you have the Grenade, continue playing as normal and you'll find that some enemies have a small icon above the heads. Bring them down to 40% health or less and throw the Grenade at them to transform the enemy into its Elite variant. Simply kill it, pick the Grenade up and rinse/repeat until you reach 100.

    After you unlock Custom mode, you have the option to enter a seed number. I randomly put in my birthday, seed 000708. This seed has an easy elite right at the beginning. You can also zip through the level and get the timed door which will net you 20 dead cells to cash in on any blueprints you want with the collector, rinse and repeat. If you just restart after killing the Elite, it will count towards the achievement.
