If you die, immediatelly pause the game and quit to the main menu. You can then load your save normally and keep playing. No need to close the game.
Brain5454Oh wow are you for real? This is much easier lol

brunopcosta1Yeah, that's how I did it! It's a lot faster, specially on the Series X. In 5 seconds you are back to where you were before you died.

UsCanAdamI can confirm: quit to main menu and continue the save file works. You can get both 120min and no death run together.

gemueseapfeli did a mistake like 100m before the end. is this possible like the collectables over different sections? like getting killed the parts before but the part i was missing with no death?

zDrUnKeNMoNkEyzI’m curious about this as well. Does it need to be done in one full run?

brunopcosta1The collectibles carries over to the subsequent playtrhoughs. No need to do it all in one playthrough.

zDrUnKeNMoNkEyzWe are asking if the no death run has to be all in one run. The collectibles comment was an example of how you can get them through various different runs.

brunopcosta1Oh, sorry, I misunderstood. Yeah, it has to be in one run.
Posted by brunopcosta1 on 11 Jan at 23:24
zDrUnKeNMoNkEyzAh, ok. Appreciate it brotha! Oh, and just to clarify if I don’t pause and quit the game prior to my character reappearing it voids it correct? On series X there’s literally no loading for anything, so think I already messed up lol

brunopcosta1To be honest, I always quitted before respawning, so I can't answer with a 100% certainty. But I believe the game autosaves as soon as you reappear, voiding the achievement.

zDrUnKeNMoNkEyzMakes sense, appreciate it brotha! toast

TheOnlyMattoPlease put a warning on there about the fact that there is no death scene in the final level. If your game pauses slightly, you need to pause, quit and hit continue.

I respawned, instantly crashed the game and some how lucked out and got the achievement but hot damn put a warning man

zDrUnKeNMoNkEyz^do what now?
Posted by zDrUnKeNMoNkEyz on 16 Jan at 07:55
TheOnlyMattoWhen you die in the last level there is no death scene. If your light runs out while going through w/e it is that drains your light it just pauses slightly and instantly respawns you. I dunno if it is something to do with the load time on that level, which is nil compared to others, but it is worth noting. If your screen pauses (because it is always moving up) then you should pause the game and reload like any other death.

I respawned and still managed the achievement. I didn't touch the near by save. I was on the last level where you are 2 tentacles.

zDrUnKeNMoNkEyzAh ok, appreciate the elaboration. Will make sure to be extra careful!good looking out brotha! toast
Posted by zDrUnKeNMoNkEyz on 16 Jan at 08:52
TheOnlyMattoNp. I was stunned by how fast it loaded. Not even a black screen between.
Posted by TheOnlyMatto on 16 Jan at 09:15
zDrUnKeNMoNkEyzHaha yup! I made a comment about that a few up, on SX it’s basically non existent. Gotta be quick! 😂

CuddIe Bunnynew patch released, any idea if this method still works?
Posted by CuddIe Bunny on 21 Jan at 09:04
mimirosewould like to add that when you die you can die multi times load up as long as you don't advance to next checkpoint you can quit and continue the timer helps to show this which makes it easier for time achievement

xNeo21x@Cuddle Bunny Just beat the sewer level after dying a number of times and got the achievement for beating it without dying by quitting to the menu and Continuing each time I died.
