I ended my first runthough on hard using exactly 400 batteries. How many did you use?

After finishing the game for the 2nd time, normal and hard, I had used 184. Not that many I guess compared to yours. I always tried to keep a check on how many I was using, even though you never really run low on them at any point.

Oh well I found my left trigger sticking at many points and forgot that it was boosting it still but its cool. I got the achievement pretty quickly for using 100 batteries because of this. All it takes is using the max amount 5 times.

Sometimes?? I actually like how they recharge. They use Energizer batteries in the game so why don't they recharge? Maybe I am using them wrong :P

LOL, yeah with two play thru's done, normal and nightmare, have used 333. I always caught myself not using new batteries for fear I would run out or not find any I have no idea why. Totally retarded.

Oh and just got to say love the game and can't wait for the two dlc's.

I'm only about halfway through episode 2 on normal and I know it's early but I've only used one battery! They recharge so fast that I never need to reload them and I don't want to reload the flashlight for no reason. Is there much of a need to reload the flashlight later in the game? Otherwise, I don't see why you guys used that many batteries, other than for the achievement of course.

I didn't use them hardly at all through hard, was paranoid like the other guy that they would run out, but i never had less than fifteen, wtf self?

There will be sections where there are quite a few taken around plus poltergiest items to contend with, this sort of section can cause you to get through a few batteries as you'll be forever boosting the flashlight.

I got just under the achievement on my first run, is that 100?

I beat the game last night on normal and then went back and got the "An Idyllic Small Town" and "Meet the Deadline" achievements and I've still only used 89 batteries. The only achievements I have left to get are for beating the game on nightmare and hard, finding all of the nightmare manuscripts of course, and using 100 batteries. I'm pretty amazed that the tc used 400 in one playthrough, I doubt I could do that if I tried.

400 in one playthrough does seem a bit excessive. After my first time through I had used 93 I think.

By the ending on normal i had used 91 and i had 11 left over so i just wasted them to get the achievement

383 after both playthroughs(Normal and Nightmare). I used over 100 in my first playthrough just to get the achievement though, so I can't say for sure how many it would've taken me had I not worried about it. xD

At the end of my run through on normal, I'd used about 23. Im halfway through nightmare now.. (episode 3) and im on a total of i think 46.. you dont have to use them all the often and the acheivment can wait..

coulda probably used less than 50 but I played on normal, ended up spamming my batteries at the end to get the achievement
