    I just went and had a brief look and although I'm sure that the writer(s) have a better grasp than me, there looks to be considerable amounts with the main missing section being the DLC and some miscellaneous achievement descriptions.

    I was just wondering how long it takes on average, to see if it's worth starting.

    What's done on this? Although I've never done a walkthrough, I'd like to try it out. I completed the main game of this awhile ago, haven't done the DLC though.

    I finished up the main game walkthrough about a week ago, I think it's waiting for approval. I didn't do the DLC though, which may be why it hasn't went through. I haven't done the DLC myself, and am not looking forward to starting it so I don't know if I'm going to do the DLC walkthrough. I'm also unsure when it will be approved and published, I can't imagine it being to far from now.

    Ok right forum!

    You may want to put a disclaimer just before the section dealing with deleting the current patch to attain level 50. It causes you to lose all progress in most of the cumulative achievements.

    Can you give me the version of that patch in a PM if possible please? I'd like to see if I have the same one installed on my console from when I last completed it

    God damnit! Another Walkthrough with all the collectibles and misc achievements on separate pages, I hate this shit! Listing them in a random order on another page is no more helpful than the achievement list itself, so what's the f*cking point of having a Walkthrough?!

    What's so hard about putting everything you can get in the story, in the Story Walkthrough page, that's what it's there for? Nobody likes flipping backwards and forwards between 3 or 4 tabs and trying to remember which achievement is next.

    Please integrate the collectibles and misc achievements into the Story page like any half-decent walkthrough.

    Also there is no mention of this update thing; before starting the game I'm getting the following poorly worded message, and do not know what would be best to choose achievement-wise:

    Warning - The game was updated with a system that adjusts enemies level to your current level. This makes coop game challenging for you regardless of the level your host is currently on. Do you want to enable the system? (recommended) cn_A Yes cn_B No - - - ver. 1.3.0

    Come on, help us out here.

    I haven't played the game in ages, so I have no idea what patches have done to any achievements. As far as I know, the co op worked like it does in Dying Light, it's just a drop in and out system. If someone is near you, you can join them, and they can join you. No matter if you're on your first playthrough or NG+, enemies are scaled to your character, so if you're in the beginning area and are level 1, and you join someone who's on NG+ (I'm not sure if you can, but I believe you can.) their enemies will be higher level. I THINK this game may have implemented a system to where the enemy appears as a level 50~ to them, and a level 1~ to you. (approx. levels) And your damagejust kinda scaled into theirs in a way.

    As for the actual walkthrough, this was the very first walkthrough I'd done. All I did was add some finishing touches to it, as the original owner already had much of it done, and the entire layout. He hadn't touched it in awhile, so I figured I could add in what I remembered just to get a basic walkthrough up, I just added a small amount to what was done, and stuck with that layout. It really wasn't done well at all, in any aspect. I should've done guides for missions, certain speical weapons and the ways to obtain them, locations for the location achievement and which ones you'd uncover during certain missions. There is a lot more that could have, and probably should have been done with it.

    The collectibles are extremely easy to find though, and there are far more collectibles in the game than needed for the achievements. I finished up the collectible achievement without any guides at all, and wasn't really looking very hard. If you do most side quests, you'll do a bit of running around and exploring to find them.

    If someone wants to add to the walkthrough, then please feel free to ask for editing permission. There's a ton that can be added, and I'm very aware of it.

    I'll most likely pick up the Xbox One version when it releases, so I may be able to add to it then, but for now I don't really have the time to replay the 360 version. I'm sure main progression will be the same in the new version, and I doubt the game will be much different, if at all.

    Still no mention of this in the walkthrough, I don't like to pester but it has been over a year and losing 3/4 of progress in the cumulative achievements really sucked as they are listed in thr walkthrough after doing this.

    And deevius, our affliction is correct. For example if you choose no and join a coop game at level 1 with a level 50 host you will get annihilated by level 50 enemies, or if you are level 40 and join a level 10 host you will be a god and destroy the level 10 enemies.

    However if you choose yes the enemies are balanced to your level regardless of the host level.

    This thread never appeared as having new posts in it for me in my threads until Deevius's post, I'm updating it now to add the disclaimer.
