View Full Version : Nightmare Difficulty

Ok so I am probably going to wait until I finish up The Writer DLC to even start this but I was just wondering how hard nightmare difficulty actually is. I heard people say that Run on Sentence was harder than all of nightmare difficulty but I'm not sure. What do you guys think about it and what was the hardest part of it?

I found it easier on Nightmare than i did on Normal. All you have to do is run, turn around, shine torch and rinse and repeat :p The only parts i found annoying was the combine harvetser fight and the bridge at the end of the game. Other than them 2 parts its actually not that hard at all on Nightmare.

yeah i was dreading the music stage bit on nightmare but it was ok (i found my experience going throught he game on normal ,made nightmare not such a nightmare).transformer yard was the hardest part imo. cant wait for a return to bright falls this evening

Yeah, I definitely thought Run On Sentence was harder. A few areas can be frustrating but, for the most part, Nightmare isn't too difficult. Thought supplies might be an issue but I only found myself low on batteries, flares and/or flashbangs one or two times. Just flee whenever possible and only fight when it can't be avoided.

Its not that hard really, theres plenty of checkpoints, getting the one for finishing The Signal without dying was much much harder

flares and sprinting... you'll be using those tools a lot in the nightmare playthrough haha.

its not that hard really... just save your ammo as much as you can and keep in the light.

I had already beaten the game twice cause I love it, then tried nightmare for the 3rd playthrough. I dunno if it was just cause I was so familiar with it, but I beat it only dying about 3-4 times. Very easy, and the parts I was dreading (kidnapper escort/rock concert/and transformer yard) were all done on the first try.

nightmare is embarrassingly easy on this game, you can literally run through 90% of the game without killing anyone
