Nobody seems to realize that there's an easier way to get the first few achievements like hoarder, scout, and the nightmare achievement. Play the first level of episode 3, not episode 1. It's much easier than e1m1 on nightmare and it can be accessed from the main menu without having to beat any levels beforehand. Also, the hoarder achievement is especially easy on this level because there are only about 6 items in the level and it's impossible to miss them because they are all right next to each other in the same room, a room you have to go through to beat the level.
