Achievement Guide & Roadmap
Written by Nevander
For use on x360a exclusively

100% COMPLETED

ROADMAP

Overview
There are 55 achievements with a total of 1350 points.
Offline: 49(1130:gsicon:)
Online: 6(220:gsicon:)
Estimated game difficulty: 4/10
Estimated achievement difficulty: 5/10
Approximate time to complete: ~36 hours
Minimum number of play-throughs needed: N/A (open level select)
Online achievements obtainable in private matches: Yes; refer to step four of the Roadmap.
Minimum number of people required to boost online: 2
Number of missable achievements: 1 (Evil's Haste)
Glitched achievements: Grave Raider, Skyscraper, and Evil's Kids not unlocking properly; refer to step one of the Roadmap.
Extra equipment needed: No
Online pass required: No
Cheats: None reported

Step One - Sign the Pact (skip to step four if you wish to do the online first)
Your first step to obtaining the full completion in this game is to begin on any of the three available difficulty settings. Trauma difficulty must be unlocked by first clearing Nightmare. I personally would recommend Insomnia (the normal setting). During this play-through, you will want to just play the game! There isn't much to do in way of specific achievements per level, besides the Black Tarot cards, which brings me to the next step.

NOTE: Try not to level select during your first run of the game though because there appears to be a chance of the chapter achievements not unlocking properly. The only fix is to replay the levels in each respective chapter until they unlock.

Step Two - Missing Tarot Cards
During this step, you will want to be picking up your missing Tarot Cards. You will need them for the next step. Each level has one or more specific requirements to fulfill to gain access to using certain Black Tarot cards. You can see each level's requirement by holding :back: during the level. If you need help in obtaining your missing cards, please refer to THIS (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=501457) thread. The best way to go about unlocking them would be to replay levels on Daydream difficulty.

Step Three - Nightmare and Trauma
Once you have cleared the game once and unlocked all of the Tarot cards, now is the time to go through Nightmare and Trauma difficulty. Using your unlocked Tarot cards, you should be able to breeze through. Once Nightmare is done, it is time to do it all again for Trauma. The different settings don't get much harder than the last, but in case you really need assistance, please refer to 'Trauma's End' in the guide. These two modes cannot be done in co-operative for the achievements.

Step Four - Online
Now that everything above is out of the way, it's time to take care of the few online achievements that exist. There aren't many, luckily. There is however an issue with this game and private matches. In my own experience, whenever a private match was hosted, the client would be unable to connect for some reason. Setting it to public works just fine. Since the game is pretty much dead, randoms should not be a serious concern. Please visit the Achievement Trading Thread (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=419511) to find partners for finishing the online.

Step Five - Mop Up
The final step in obtaining your completion is to mop up anything you have left. The types of achievements you still need will probably be the ones for obtaining a certain amount of kills in a specific way, most notably the 6666 kills with stakes. Please refer to the guide on how best to tackle your remaining achievements. You can see a fairly good amount of statistics in the statistics screen from the main menu to let you know how much longer you have for certain achievements.

One thing to note, however, is that my statistics from Survival games (in the demo at least) reset every time I restart the game. This doesn't seem to be the case in the full game. Kills in survival mode count towards other achievements unless otherwise noted in an achievement description.

Step Six - Additional DLCs
You may wish to expand your Painkiller experience with one or more of the DLC packs that are in the pipes for this game. Please visit THIS (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showpost.php?p=5872342&postcount=5) post to see the currently available DLCs along with their respective guides.

High Stakes - 15:gsicon:
Solo Campaign: Finish the level using stakes only and don't miss any hit.

The best method for this achievement would be to start up Enclave on Daydream with the cards Triple Haste, Rage, and Double Time Bonus as your gold cards and Mercy and Fear as your silver cards. You cannot attempt this method until you beat the game once, however. You also cannot use the Fear card unless you have bought the 'Medieval Horror' DLC pack.

As soon as the level starts, activate your first card usage. Aim for the Necrogiant's legs. It should take twelve direct hits to his legs to kill him. If you see him doing his stomp animation, hold your fire because he is invulnerable during this time. When he stops, activate your second usage for your Tarot cards and keep firing until dead.

When he dies, take ONLY his soul with the Soul Catcher (as the game prompts you to). Then immediately switch back to the Stakegun. Activate your final card usage and kill all the smaller enemies which spawn. The achievement should unlock after they die and the level ends. If you miss a shot at any time, you will need to restart checkpoint or die to try the level (and achievement) again.

Credit for this method goes to KriugerisLT.

Rabbit's Son - 25:gsicon:
Spend 666 seconds on bunny-hopping.

Bunny-hopping, in Painkiller, is very simple to do. All you have to do is keep moving forwards or backwards and jump each time you hit the ground. Exactly what a bunny hop actually is.

The more efficient you become at it, the faster you can move around the level while bunny-hopping. Just keep practicing this little trick and before you know it, you'll be bunny-hopping everywhere you go in this game.

You can see your 'bunny ratio' or total time spent bunny-hopping in the statistics screen from the main menu.


http://media.steampowered.com/steamcommunity/public/images/apps/214870/d0ae3dbb8f7d5c6c0f961bb7d1f8e11bc26f54b5.jpg
Warehouse - 25:gsicon:
Collect 500 ammo crates.

Ammo crates are exactly what they sound like, boxes (literally) of ammunition. By the time you complete the game once, you should either have the achievement or be fairly close to 500 provided that you have been picking up ammo boxes. If you still need more ammo crates, just keep playing the game and it will unlock through natural progression.

You can see how many total ammo crates you have collected in the statistics screen from the main menu.


http://media.steampowered.com/steamcommunity/public/images/apps/214870/ce598125e5a4d75617d61290114a76f1206e58d8.jpg
Above the Beast - 15:gsicon:
Collect 667 souls of dismembered enemies.

For this one, you must dismember an enemy completely (split them into pieces) and then take their soul. A normal kill where the enemy simply falls over will not count.

The easiest weapons to accomplish this task with would be the Rocket Launcher, Grenade Launcher, Soul Catcher saw blades, or combo attacks with the Painkiller weapon or the freeze-then-fire tactic with the Shotgun.


http://media.steampowered.com/steamcommunity/public/images/apps/214870/9c94d2a6ffc307a72efe872d91c5a78b789a430d.jpg
Cloth Collector - 20:gsicon:
Collect 40 armors.

Armors are pretty hard to miss in this game (unless in secret areas), as they float and look like they could fit on just about anything. They can come in several variations; a bronze set for 100 points of armor, a silver set for 150 points of armor, and a gold set for 200 points of armor.

Pick these up whenever you see them and you should obtain this before you finish off most of everything else. If you cannot take an armor, you most likely have over the armor threshold for picking up new armor. For example, if you can't pick up a gold armor, you most likely have 150 or more armor. Lower your armor to around 90 and then take it. You can damage yourself by firing any explosive weapon at your feet if need be. It has also been suggested that the Tarot cards such as Vitality and Blessing may have an effect on your ability to pick up armor.

You should have anywhere from 30-38 armors after completing the game once, so just keep playing and it will unlock through natural progression. You can see how many total armors you have collected in the statistics screen from the main menu. Armors will also save if you die and or load last checkpoint.

Greedy Farmer - 10:gsicon:
Solo Campaign: Collect 2012 pieces of gold from fallen enemies.

To collect gold from 'fallen' enemies, you must first kill them. Once they are down, you must use the 'Painkiller' weapon to extract the gold from them. To do this, you need to use this weapon's alternate fire to send the blade spike into them and then pull it back towards you quickly, over and over by spamming :ltbut:.

This procedure will do two things: pull the enemy's body towards you and even upwards, and extract gold from them. You must collect 2012 or more pieces of gold from them. Try to do this on every enemy you come across when you can. If you focus on doing this on the bigger, fatter enemies, you should unlock this one before you complete the game once.

If you need to see a visual tutorial of how to extract gold from fallen enemies, please view the video below (credit to MrFPSDude).

Discoverer - 20:gsicon:
Solo Campaign: Find 25 secret areas.

Finding secret areas may come naturally to you (or to Painkiller veterans at least). If you have difficulty locating 25 secret areas on your own, please refer to THIS (http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLjeqJccvVjUAv5OjqkOZcr8wtuZQ6BgZM) YouTube playlist of all secrets brought to us by malice2kvideos.

It has not been confirmed if it must be 25 different secret areas, or just 25 in total. Although I am fairly certain that it is just 25 in total.

Five Points Gangsta - 10:gsicon:
Kill 5 enemies with one rocket.

Killing five enemies with one rocket should not prove to be a challenge. Rockets are fired from the Rocket Launcher/Chaingun weapon by pressing :rtbut:.

All you really need to do is wait for a group of smaller enemies to form on any level where you have access to this weapon. Pretty much any level will work for this one, as you will have plenty of chances. Your first chance (and best chance) comes during the level 'Trainstation.'


http://media.steampowered.com/steamcommunity/public/images/apps/214870/dd39deef710243a5990b79010072bb50634f30fb.jpg
Barrel destroyer - 20:gsicon:
Destroy 300 barrels.

Barrels (whether they are wooden or metal) will explode upon being shot or damaged. That means stand back and then destroy them! When barrels are destroyed, they also drop a small amount of gold.

You will need to destroy a fairly hefty amount of barrels to obtain this one. Try your best to destroy them when enemies are nearby to also work towards the 'Disaster' achievement.

You should unlock this before you complete the game once, provided you have been shooting every barrel you see. If after your first play-through you still need to destroy more, simply keep playing and it will unlock through natural progression. You can see how many barrels you have destroyed in the statistics screen from the main menu.

Devil's Name - 10:gsicon:
Kill 666 enemies with Soul Catcher.

The Soul Catcher is the weapon you start out with in the very beginning of the game in the level 'Cemetery.' All you must do is kill 666 enemies with either fire mode from this weapon.

Cyclone - 10:gsicon:
Kill 333 enemies with explosive weapons.

Explosive weapons include the Rocket Launcher (from the Rocket Launcher/Chaingun weapon), the Grenade Launcher (from the Stakegun/Grenade Launcher), and the pop-grenades from the Boltgun. Just like any other kill-related achievement, keep killing demons with whatever you must to get the job done.


http://media.steampowered.com/steamcommunity/public/images/apps/214870/f389d7c5899186bcb021c3fea039ff8735994dc6.jpg
Statistical Effect - 45:gsicon:
Shoot 50000 times.

This achievement is extremely self-explanatory. You should unlock this one by the time you are finished with everything else, possibly even before you are.

You can see how many shots you have made in the statistics screen from the main menu. A quick way to finish this one off would be to fire off Chaingun ammo in private survival games.


http://media.steampowered.com/steamcommunity/public/images/apps/214870/b69643873bebfc3fdbb2a0637da3f40ee9a136fc.jpg
Reversed Devil - 20:gsicon:
Kill 999 enemies with Shotgun.

The Shotgun is, well, a shotgun. You should have this weapon along with the Soul Catcher at the very start of the game on the first level, 'Cemetery.' Just keeping taking down demons with this weapon and you should have this after a good amount of playtime in either campaign or survival.


http://media.steampowered.com/steamcommunity/public/images/apps/214870/f230ee271d6b2f1399acee93407474608ae460ae.jpg
Chopper of the Year - 20:gsicon:
Gib 500 enemies entirely with rockets.

Rockets are fired from the Rocket Launcher/Chaingun weapon by pressing :rtbut:. All you must do is take down 500 demons using rockets only. This will usually result in the enemies you kill being 'gibbed' and dismembered, which will also work towards 'Above the Beast,' provided you also take their souls.

Trickster - 25:gsicon:
Kill 123 enemies with combo damage.

Special attacks are done by combining fire modes of a weapon. Not all weapons have special attacks. These are done by holding down the button for one fire mode, and then pressing the button of the other fire mode.

A prime example is firing a plate of shurikens from the Electrodriver by holding down the fire mode for the lightning attack, and then pressing the button for the shuriken attack. Another example would be the spinning blade attack of the Painkiller weapon which is done by holding down the button to spin the blade, and then pressing the button to send the blade outwards.

Kill 123 enemies with these types of attacks and this one will be yours.


http://media.steampowered.com/steamcommunity/public/images/apps/214870/b8df9e04b904604892283e5210f8d09ab687385c.jpg
Disaster - 25:gsicon:
Kill 500 enemies with environmental explosions.

This one means to simply kill enemies by using barrel explosions. So then, if you see enemies near barrels or other environmental hazards, shoot the barrels or objects instead of the enemies themselves. Survival is a good place to accomplish this achievement as there is an infinite spawn of enemies as well as barrels.


http://media.steampowered.com/steamcommunity/public/images/apps/214870/da5a0bf311d8fb1a7100a6f707ca9f1df6c6e3f0.jpg
Extinction - 50:gsicon:
Kill 6666 enemies with stakes.

This is the big one. This one achievement might possibly be your last one, as 6666 is a LOT of enemies. Not only must this be done with one weapon, it must also be done with one fire mode of one weapon.

IMPORTANT: It would be best to save this achievement for last once you are done with everything else.

The best, easiest, and quickest way that I have found to farming this achievement would be to replay one of two levels: either Atrium Complex or Oriental Castle. Personally, I prefer Atrium Complex but Oriental Castle has MUCH more enemies and in larger groups, but the level takes longer to finish and there are some larger enemies that require special attention. Therefor, I still suggest Atrium Complex.

So, start up Atrium Complex.
Use Dexterity, Time Bonus, and Double Time Bonus for your gold cards.
Use Mercy and Replenish for your silver cards.
Choose Daydream difficulty.
With this setup, it will work perfectly with this specific level where this setup will come into play.
Progress through the level as normal with anything for the beginning. You should start out with only 5 stakes. This is fine, you're about to be loaded.
You will kill three enemies and then you will be in a room with small pillars on each side of the room and two levels. Drop down, and kill these enemies here with anything.
Now, wait a second after they all die. You will hear doors open. Find the door in the corner to the left of the statue in the wall in the back of the room.
Go up the stairs and then when you get back up to the second level, immediately face right. You will see some large ammo dump crates. Jump across the gap and pick them all up and voila! With Replenish, you should now have 100 stakes ready to go. You also have three card uses to make getting Stakegun kills a breeze.
You should use your cards when there are a ton of enemies around you. You decide when you should use them, but be careful not to miss too many shots.
Proceed through the level and take out everyone you can with stakes. There are 188 enemies on this level, which means you should be able to kill all but seven of them with stakes (if you used the starting five to kill the first few enemies).

Don't worry about running out of ammo. There are a total of 7 extra crates of stakes as you progress through the level. Here are their locations:

1 crate - After the square room with the first armor, go outside, down the steps, straight across the area, and then through the door. In the far back of the room in the middle of the floor next to two chests is the crate.
3 crates - From the room mentioned above, shoot a grenade from the Stakegun directly under the window next to the door and look up. You will see the shadow of a door falling over. Go out of the room and then to the far left corner of this area and through that door. Turn to the immediate left and destroy the large chest. Walk onto the jump pad and to the second level of the area. Go through one of the two doors, then to the right, around the corner to the left, and then through the first door on the right. The three crates will be directly in front of you.
1 crate - From the room mentioned above, go out of the door and take a right. Go around the corner to the left and in the far back right corner there will be another single crate.
2 crates - After the larger second outside area you will go inside into a large rectangular room. In the distance you will see a statue and two sets of stairs. In front of the right set of stairs are the two crates of stakes.

All the enemies during this level can be one shot killed with the Stakegun on Daydream, which makes this method the better method compared to just farming Survival where it takes multiple shots to kill enemies. However, the infinite spawning enemies may be more your style. In that case, you would want to set up your own private survival game on Opera with the max time and a frag limit of about 500. Here you will have access to the Stakegun, and there will be plenty of ammo around.

It may take a while, so be ready to keep killing demons over and over, but that never gets old right?

True friendship - 50:gsicon:
Play 10 different levels in cooperative mode.

Ten levels (if starting from the beginning) would be from chapters one to three. Start at Cemetery and the achievement will unlock after completing Swamp. You can do this achievement alone, so all you have to do is create a private co-op game and play through the above levels on any difficulty.

A little fun fact for you; the reason for not ALL original levels being in the game is because they all did not 'flow' well enough in co-op, apparently.

Exterminator - 25:gsicon:
Kill 1000 enemies in Survival mode.

Survival mode can be played alone, or in co-op. For this one, you will probably want to be playing alone so that other players don't steal your kills or try to kill you.

From the main menu, choose multiplayer and then survival. Create your own game and make sure to change your party type to a private session. To make it easier on yourself, head into the advanced settings and change the settings to your benefit. You will want to do two games, 500 kills each. Set the time limit to the max and the frag limit to 500.

Now the fun begins! You may have to complete both games back to back without returning to the main menu for this one to unlock.

Sport League - 10:gsicon:
Capture 3 flags playing as Eve in one game.

To play as Eve, you must simply change your player model in the multiplayer menu by selecting 'player settings' and changing your appearance to Eve and then making sure to save settings.

Once you have done this, head into the multiplayer menu and choose capture the flag. Create a game and make sure the party type is a public session. Make the capture limit four so that you and your partner can both get the achievement in one game.

Start up the match and take turns getting three flags. Once you both have captured three flags, let one person win the match to net your achievements. If you set the map to Meatless HD, the person winning can get both achievements in the same match.

Hard-boiled - 10:gsicon:
Get 30 kills in 3 minutes in Deathmatch mode.

This is the hardest achievement to do in this game, simply because it requires a lot of precision and players if going for it legit. It pretty much has to be boosted. You will only need two players to do this; one to be the person getting it, and the other to be the one dying. Three minutes isn't a whole lot of time.

From the main menu, head into multiplayer and choose deathmatch. Create a game and make sure the party type is a public session. Make the time limit anything and the frag limit to thirty frags. Choose Unseen as the map.

Start up the match and when it begins, head to the center of the map. The person getting the achievement needs to kill as fast as possible while the other person gets back to the center as fast as possible. The person getting the kills should just focus on holding down :rtbut: with the Painkiller weapon while the person dying simply runs into the blades. During the match you can press :back: to see how many frags you have and the remaining time.

When you first play, you can only play on Daydream on Insomnia. You cannot play Nightmare until you have unlocked all tarot cards.
I recommend that all levels are completed before using level select to replay. Or perhaps complete a chapter at a time at least, before level selecting any levels within it. I have got my chapter related achievements but I know another user has not, and that is the only thing I can think of as I've used continue all the way through without level selecting at any point.
Might be worth mentioning that there doesn't appear to be any way to change the difficulty setting once you start playing.
For above the beast I think the soul catcher probably counts too? I have used that a LOT so I'm certain it helps with quite a lot of these types of achievements.
For the armour achievement, as you progress and start using tarot cards, I think high health also effects whether you can pick up armour. I discovered that last night. :-s

Thank you for the information, I will update the guide with it and credit you of course.

I could've sworn though that you can choose different difficulties? If you go to select level and pick one, it takes you to the Black Tarot screen and then it lets you pick difficulty. Or at least it does on PC and in the demo.

I hope they didn't change this for the console version because I think the demo is also the 'beta' of this game that PC got a long time ago.

If you're using continue, there's no option at the start of levels or during gameplay. Which I found unusual. I can confirm if you replay or level select (which I wasn't risking until now, when I was beyond the achievement for completing chapter 3) you can choose difficultly.
It's definitely magically changed the difficulty for chapter 4 for me without me even going in through level select which is annoying. Just as well there's no achievement for completing it on Insomnia.

So I guess it doesn't matter much really. Just odd that it does that. At least I believe you can level select for Nightmare and Trauma, I hope.

It says 'played whole game' so I hope that just means all levels on those settings. lol

Nightmare difficulty is available from the very start and although it would be advisable to go through on a lower difficulty and earn some cards first it is still do-able.
Trauma difficulty is unlocked by beating nightmare and can be completed by using chapter select.

Pro Tip: You can pick up the same piece of armor and Restart Checkpoint and it will still count towards collecting 40 armor power-ups in total.

It states in the booklet, that comes with the game, that Nightmare is only available after unlocking all 23 tarot cards on Insomnia difficulty.
But Snitty 1 is right, oddly it lets you select nightmare via level select.
Can you confirm if the 3 'complete chapter...' achievements popped for you, using level select, Snitty 1?
I wonder if and suspect there might be the odd achievement that only pops from doing a continued play through without using level select, like the 2012 gold achievement? Saw you're 4th on the Leaderboards ;)

You can level select for Insomnia & Daydream, I just hadn't chanced it for the 'complete chapter...' Achievements and hadn't really thought about it as so used to difficulty being accessable via pause menu or rather in your face.
Exactly, says you need to unlock the tarot cards on insomnia to unlock nightmare, but imagine because they all involve achievements that it will let you level select rather than make you get them all on 1 playthrough.
I've put some info under some of the achievements on the achievements page, as much of a noob I felt doing it for the first time, if you want some info for some of the top set you've not filled in yet.
pkzone.org is another good site for video walkthrough and secret areas guide. It has all the secret areas, bar the Xbox(?) bonus level ones, and it shows them in order. Bearing in mind that the original Painkller secret area locations are different to the ones in H&D. Could be a while before a video appears for the bonus level secrets, as it's Xbox or console exclusive.

Nice to hear it comes with a booklet, but so strange they don't even know their own game? And 23 cards? Thought there was 22. Man oh man so much different information. It's like trying to figure out the release dates all over again lol.

Could be a while before a video appears for the bonus level secrets, as it's Xbox or console exclusive.

I believe it is. I know City On Water is an original PK level, and it wasn't in the PC version of HD. At least we're getting a good extra map. I like it more than Factory which is what PC got I think. I just hope we get the DLC maps that PC has gotten. Also wouldn't mind having those Halloween and Christmas themed maps they got too.

Happened to me just now too. I take it you have to jump back to the balcony edge from there btw?

Don't forget you can kinda bunny hop in place if need be. Just jump once and then jump again and push forward. Gives you some needed momentum if you don't have a lot of space to move.

Yeah, the PC DLC is good. They asked on the fb page the other day what people would like to see in DLC for console.

It's the last level so I've done all the other tricky secret areas. ;) This one is not like others where you jump on the tiniest of window cills, round awkwardly to another, you specifically have to jump from a balcony to a wooden ledge and then back, you can't just drop down. A lot of the tricky secret areas seem weirdly effected by moving the camera too, as though your head is pushing you off, rather than your body stood still.

It really sucks that A LOT of original Painkiller maps were pulled out for a cheap DLC...

Military Base, Bridge and Town Streets were one of my favorites in the bunch. Hate it when game companies do that. The game feels a lot lighter without those levels. If I'm not mistaken, they took out about ~6-7 original maps from the game, which is really sad.

I will not buy the DLC's on purpose, simply because they took out those maps from the original 2004 game. I can easily play the 2004 version and enjoy those maps in particular. Improved graphics be damned.

I never played the original but I've seen the list of chapters and levels and H&D seems to cut out some and rearrange the order? I don't know how the original was cut scene/story telling wise, but it feels kind of disjointed, like ok, I'm going to all these cool different settings, but why? Why am I going from this one to that?
How much of the DLC on PC was levels from the original? I'm guessing the first DLC, with the bridge, was originally The Bridge, that I've now seen people mention, funnily enough. ;)
I liked the war related DLC, they picked me out for a code for that. I just haven't played much on the PC because of it running way better on my Xbox.

Just to be clear nightmare difficulty is available on your first playthrough using the sign a new pact option, no need for level select. I don't know if using level select on your first playthrough messes with the chapter complete achievements because my first playthrough was continuous and they all unlocked okay.

Also although the booklet does say there are 23 cards, in game there are only 22 slots in the card select menu so that is probably another mistake.

You can also unlock High Stakes on the Necrogiant boss stage. Shoot him in the leg with a Stakegun 12 times (4x Damage boost, Rage card), let him do the stomping animation, because he's invulnerable at that time. As soon as he starts walking again, use the tarot cards again, prefefably Triple Haste, Rage and Double Time Bonus. Don't forget the Mercy silver card.

When you kill the Necrogiant, pick up his soul with the Soul Catcher, and immediately switch to the Stakegun again and kill all the enemies that appear, use the cards 3rd time for the Triple Haste.

100% tested and works.

I agree 100%.

Those three levels were three of my most favorite levels, along with Asylum which was also cut. Really wish they didn't cut the levels, but at least they are in the game now via DLCs.

Regardless, I still think it's a cheap way to make more money by dishing out the cut levels with DLCs.

Some more cut levels I would hope will come out:


Docks
Catacombs
Prison
Ruins (the original chapter 3 boss)
Castle (not Oriental Castle, this is an actual medieval castle)
Babel
Forest
Monastery
Hell
Lab
Pentagon
Dead City
Shadowland (the original BooH version)
Underworld
Stone Pit

Jeez after typing this list, I realized they cut a TON of shit.

Even the original didn't have much in the way of level order, but the story (for what it's worth) did flow better IMO. That's what PK has always been about really. Fighting demons in random locals, lol.

Also although the booklet does say there are 23 cards, in game there are only 22 slots in the card select menu so that is probably another mistake.

They might have added the card you get from the PC's Collector's Edition. Too bad we don't get it.

They basically cut the game in half. lol

I'd understand if the game was rushed a bit, and the later DLC's would be free, since they didn't have time to convert them into UT3 rendered surroundings, but this is BS, since they weren't on a tight schedule.

They used a lame ass excuse. The other levels aren't co-op oriented. BULLSHIT. Looney park isn't co-op oriented, and it still is available.

At least completing the game on Trauma is hilariously easy. Took me less than ~3hrs to complete the game on it's hardest difficulty. If the game had ALL original maps, the game would be significantly longer.

It's a deal breaker for some, because the game is short, and the replay value, other than achievements is basically zero.

Looks like they have already got up a first DLC. It looks like the first DLC that the PC version got. There are five new achievements and they point to Snowy Bridge and Town. I think Asylum is in there too, but no achievement for it. There is 250:gsicon: which is very nice. You can see the achievements now if you compare games with someone who has the game. Already got the guide set up as best as I can.

Fantastic guide! This business with the DLC is pathetic though. They took ages to release this- a severely gutted version of Painkiller -on consoles, and now they are putting out DLC? Unbelievable. North America still does not have the damn game and I'm sure it will be dead online by the time September comes around. If I did not enjoy Painkiller so much, I would not support this bullshit. Maybe the DLC will be free as a token of appreciation? Fat chance.

Regarding the survival achievement. As far as I can tell you can only set maximum frags to 999 yet the kill requirement is 1000. I did a match and got 999 kills set up another one with a short time limit and got a few more yet it did not unlock so I'm guessing it's either not cumulative or my achievement is glitched, can anyone help me with this?

Did you finish the second game? They might only count if a game is completed. I'm going to change the guide and say to do two games of 500 instead with the max time. Try this.

I did finish the second game yeah. The first one took 20 odd to 30 odd mins (I forget) however with the 2nd I set it to 3 mins and just killed until the time ran out and nothing popped:(. I'll try doing 2 sittings of 500 kills tonight and get back to you

Alright let me know. If nothing pops, I'll update the guide to report it as glitched. Not sure how it could be fixed, you may have to delete your player stats long enough to get the achievement.

Either way, I plan on doing Survival kills before I get into the main game when August 30 rolls around.

2 games of 500 did the trick, play them in succession though don't quit out otherwise it voids the achievement (I did that before and I think that's why it didn't unlock). I already sent a message to nevander on Live saying this but I thought I'd post it here in case it helped anyone.

The online is already dead. Fat chance of finding anyone to co-op with, and to do the online achievements, unless you boost 'em.

just unlocked hard boiled with 2 players only, unseen map, keep spinning the painkiller and have player 2 jump down into the blade, respawn, same again. Kill every 5 seconds. It can be done with 2!

i also hear 10 co op levels can be done on your own by starting co op session, you still get the achievement wether anyone joins or not, public or private

Hey markofpower maybe you can answer a question for me. If I start a public or private game with only me in it then if I die It will only let me continue from the beginning of the stage, there is no option to continue from last checkpoint. If I do it split screen will it let me continue from the checkpoint I left off from?. I guess I could start at a lower difficulty so I don't die (Had already started a nightmare run with a friend so he could get his nightmare achievement however he hasn't been online for a while).

You can't get the difficulty ones in co-op as far as I know. The descriptions both state 'solo campaign.' All you have to do is do a private co-op game with just yourself and put it on Daydream. You really shouldn't die or have a problem on Daydream.

I'm about to go for Evil's Double Time, seeing as it didn't pop on my first play through. I can't remember if I got all but one of the secret areas or not. But what puzzles me is the fact that a lot of the time there was plenty ammo I couldn't pick up. There has to be a way round having to fire weapons every single time that happens, before you can pick them up? Or am I missing that there is exact ammo types you have to get or there is tarot cards you have to use, anything at all?

Also, wanted to added a wee tip for anyone having trouble possessing 25 enemies in Loony Park. I did it on my 2nd attempt, but by skin of my teeth (possessed the very last enemy and the achievement popped!) I think because typically, for the first time ever, I fell down the gap you have to jump with a fully charged soulcatcher, causing me to lose the charge and have to charge it fully again. I think the only reason I got it after that was by being aware of two things:
1. When Loony Park started up I shot all the tin barrels from a distance, before triggering enemies to start spawning. I think there was only 1 I missed before they started.
2. Watch out for the bagged enemies, similar to the ones in Orphanage. They are popcorn bags in this one. Again, they explode when they get too close, so be sure to keep them at a distance so you don't lose them.

Yes, the only way to pick up ammo boxes that are for ammo that you are full up on requires you to fire at least one shot from the weapon the ammo type uses, then pick up the box. In case you can't take it still, move away from it and then move back into it.

Thanks for the tips about possessing enemies. Another tip is to group the enemies together as close as possible and then fire at the ground. Once (in the demo) I was able to possess three soldiers in one shot.

Thanks. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something. I'm sure I had problems with one of the secret areas first time too. I'm sure it's the first one. I remember thinking at the time, that maybe I was too far on to do it. There's a guide with some details on true achievements that should help a bit though.

Yes, was waiting until they were together firing and catching 2-3 at a time.

Just finished the Nightmare is Over achievement. Level select was fine and it popped.
Something odd I have noticed and wonder if is correct, I used the tarot card which gives you 2.5% towards your health. I never noticed my health go up with it at all during Nightmare and had to rely on collecting souls.
Since I completed Nightmare, I just tried trauma and the 2.5% card seems to work on that difficulty as it gives a significant/noticable jump in health (still rather small, but actually noticeable). But... collecting souls doesn't give any health? I noticed this because my health wouldn't go beyond 100, so thought it must be capped at 100 on Trauma, until I noticed I was getting no health from souls.

This is a small thing but just wanted to point out that there is no point using Soul Redeemer Silver Card on Trauma as you won't get any health back from green souls on this difficulty.

Awesome guide, great job! :rock

Thanks for the post but I am aware. I have the 1250:gsicon: now, but I haven't gotten around to making all the necessary changes to the guide. Just know the guide as it is now isn't 100% correct and complete. Since this game isn't very popular sadly, the changes can wait.

Really busy with school and Diablo III at the moment, so I will get back to it eventually!

Doesn't help that it's not being released in the States now. Or have there been developments with that more recently?

Bump to let everyone know that I finally got around to making the finishing touches and the guide should be 100% correct now. Also a bump to move it to the top. Thanks.
