    4 cell difficulty is sort of easier than 3 cells since almost all enemies teleport right next to you the moment they're aggro'd making them easy to pick off one by one. You'll still die in 2-3 hits and can only gain flask recharges from food shops so beating the game on these difficulties is sort of ridiculous when you have to restart the game every time you die.

    The final boss with 4 stem cells in particular is so annoying and difficult, he will likely make your vascular system explode with the might of 1000 suns before you finally beat him

    Thankfully there's an exploit that makes doing this, and any other super difficult achievement in this game possible. Playing the game with 4 stem cells is frustrating.

    Dead Cells has a sort of quick save/save state system. This is at any time you press cn_guide, the game will save at exactly that point wherever you are. The moment you die, this save feature is disabled so if you press cn_guide, dashboard, and quit the game you will continue off the last time you pressed cn_guide 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: be very careful about pressing cn_guide so you don't create a spot where you are about to be killed. Make sure you are completely dead before dashboarding to avoid doing that.

    This is kind of cheating since you'll have infinite continues as long as you don't screw yourself over saving in a bad spot, but good god is this game frustrating as hell with 3 or 4 stem cells active. I managed to get this achievement abusing this exploit, but I was still pulling my hair out most of the way.

    To expand on Archer Spense's guide, I highly recommend using the cursed sword. You die in one hit but you die so quickly anyway, it hardly makes a difference. Just be sure to make use of the guide button feature/exploit!

    The cursed sword has the highest DPS in the whole game and focusing on upgrading tactics (with no regard for HP) will see it delivering over 100,000 DPS by the time you get to the final boss. If you can match it with some good equipment you can basically one or two shot every enemy in the game, and take a substantial slice of a boss life bar in a single combo. I finished with a sword that does 100% extra damage to poisoned enemies, and also had a charm that creates a toxic cloud when I roll. So I roll past an enemy or boss, poison them, then slash away.

    Of course it's down to luck what equipment is available to you and how it they compliment each other, but you at least have a little control at the beginning of the game. Keen on restarting until you get something you like.

    xMANNY FRE5HxThis is a great strategy. Worked very well on Hand of the king since you deal so much dps. The charm with the poison roll is huge since you roll a lot in this fight. Particularly through his dash move. This was much more manageable than my 3 cell fight against him, I also had much better gear. The curse sword is also devastating against in-level enemies since they won't even get a chance to attack. I went all in on tactics and used wolf traps, crossbow-matic and my trusty quick bow, all w/ 100% poison dmg. Thanks! +1
