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, 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 before pressing
, or else you will create a save and void the achievement for that run. 2nd note:
I'd highly suggest doing this with the I Like to Live Dangerously achievement (beat game with cursed sword).
This no-hit boss achievement is the hardest of the 4. The Hand of the King is very difficult and some of his attacks are very hard to dodge. The best suggestion is to overwhelm him with high offense.
obviously play on easiest difficulty, and at least upgrade the blacksmith's +, and ++ drop chances as high as they can go at least
my recommended loadout:
every single upgrade scroll in the game should be spent on TACTICS (purple lightning bolt)Weapons: cursed sword
multiple-nocks bow or explosive crossbowTraps:
If you're familiar with Hand of the King, you know his fight is broken up into 3 parts. In between these parts, he freezes and summons minions. The moment he gets stunned is a perfect opportunity to press
if you have a decently leveled weapon and a very high tactics level, you can quickly beat Hand of the King down before he can even attack the first 2 phases. You have to be a little more careful on the 3rd since he has enough health he may pull off an attack or 2, and (as you likely know) his reach is insane and he's more prone to using the harder to dodge stuff at that point.
