There's a trick to getting this and any other no-hit boss kill achievement.
Dead Cells has a sort of quick save/save state system. This is at any time you press
, the game will save at exactly that point wherever you are. The moment you die (as in, hit 0 HP and do the death animation), this save feature is disabled so if you press
, dashboard, and quit the game you will continue off the last time you pressed
while alive. If you never did, you will restart at the very start of whatever level you made it to. This trick will allow you to retry for the no-hit achievement without having to restart from the beginning of the game. note:
if you get hit, you want to be completely DEAD (as in zero hit points) before pressing
, or else you will create a save and void the achievement for that run.
Conjunctivitis is kind of easy as long as you haven't gone crazy unlocking weapons.
basically beat the boss down until there's that brief resting phase and he summons his tentacles. This is a great place to save.
obviously it helps tremendously if you have the +, ++, and S blacksmith upgrade chances as high as you get them.
every upgrade scroll you find should be spent on TACTICS (purple lightning bolt)Weapons:
x2 throwing knives (in general 2 throwing knives makes the whole game easier) - these are EXTREMELY GOOD against conjunctivitis since you will auto-aim your throws close to 180 degrees, so you can hit him as he moves around.Traps:
(both of these are handy for the tentacles)Mutations:
