13. FUNFUNFUN
I don't really have any tactical suggestions other than to learn the levels, and take your time, especially on the NO RESTART CHALLENGE where you can stop time completely. If you're feeling gutsy, you can try jumping around to bait the enemies to shoot upward. This should mainly be attempted when closing the distance from medium range to melee range.

NO RESTART: Stay calm, and take your time so that you don't put yourself in an unsolvable position.
FUNFUNFUN: Enemies have large heads and every punch and throw is a one-hit kill.

You'll pick up

and

along the way.
NoHeroes94Tempted to pick this up.

For the challenges (except the Speedrun & Speedrunrt) can I do some levels and come back later, or do I have to do all 13 in 1 sitting each time????

TheRedRodCodYou can jump around, so for example, you can do a few Ghost challenge levels and then do some Fullstop levels.

You need to complete some of the earlier challenges to unlock the ability to start the later ones, and I didn't write down exactly where the unlocks happen.

TyzirkleBack during halloween I got some achievement progress for completing the halloween challenge (which is far easier than normal) so maybe if you're having trouble with the last speedrun challenge or something wait till halloween?

LxVaiNDo you have to beat RED-time in Speedrun-rt to get this achievement?

ManicMetalheadI don't believe so, on the Hotswitch Challenge, I didn't get all RED-times but it doesn't seem to make much difference, just as long as you complete the challenges.

I keep getting caught out on the Elevator level on No Restart cry

YAGER420BOMBThis is cheap garbage, always some bullshit and completely luck based

RealistIdealistJust got mine. The NORESTART challenge isn't really as hard as you think it once was when you've played every level 20 times or so and remember most enemy placement. The best advice I got was be patient, careful, and cheap. So many levels can be won by hanging around a corner and punching people through walls. I got cocky and (first run I attempted) died on Fall which is a super easy level. Honestly, the speedrun achievement is more difficult.
