just wondering for anyone who's gotten it whether you have to sever the 1000 limbs in one play through?

also do limbs of dead necromorphs count toward the 1000? as I've been severing all limbs of all morphs but would rather save the ammo to sell for $ to buy more nodes or whatever those upgrade things are if i'm just wasting ammo.

thanks for your time

Severing limbs of dead enemies does count - I got the 20 limbs achievement after killing only 5 or 6. Also to save ammo, I'm pretty sure you can use curb stomp on their bodies after they're dead and that counts as well.

Its always good to have someone else confirm it, and yes I got the Surgeon achievement while stomping on the monsters. What a crunchy sound they make snap,crackle and squish lol

I got the Butcher Achievement in my first playthrough in chapter 11 I think.

I got mines around chapter 8; i curbed stomped everybody i killed.

The achievement is REALLY easy, so don't worry about it.

I am only on chapter 4 and I got my 500 kills (not 1000 yet) on chapter 3... just stomp every dead body you can find

10-17-2008, 03:41 AM
Yes, dead bodies count.

Even those that are NOT necromorphs.

I got my "sever 20 limbs" or whatever by stomping a human corpse.

As part of my own experience with zombie games...

I traditionally make corpses unusable to the enemy, so severing heads and limbs makes them difficult for the Necromorphs to use, if not impossible.

So, I got my first dismemberment achievement fairly quickly and easily.

BTW, I got it the moment I popped off a guys' arm. Kinda cool, ha ha.

I got 1000 limbs first playthrough on level 7. I just mashed every dead body I came across.

the fastest way to get this acheivment is to stomp the remaining limbs off of everything dead, i got it on chapter 4 or 5 on my second play through by just stomping anything i killed to hell after it was down

You'll likely get it in the first playthrough, most people have, including yours truly. :)

In many areas, when you backtrack to go after stasis recharges or the game forces you to, the human corpses will respawn with all limbs intact. Bonus dismemberment. I am obsessive about inventory management and getting 100% of items, I must have taken the limbs off the same dudes a slew of times while backtracking.

I got mine on my first playthrough.

However, I don't know if dead limbs count.

Stomp anything and everything that has legs, arms and a head. I'm through level 4 and already got the "Dismember 500" achievement. So I'll have the "Dismember 1,000" for sure by the time I beat the game.

Just make sure you cut off both legs, both arms and the head of everything you kill (and that is dead on the ground) and you will get 5 dismemberments per body.

I wonder what the fastest someone got this achievement is? I got mine about 1/4 of the way through chapter 6, on my first play through. It'd be kinda cool to start a "who can do/did it the fastest" kinda thing...lol.

10-19-2008, 05:36 PM
I got mine on Chapter 8. I just used the fucking bladesaw or whatever its called.

10-19-2008, 05:39 PM
You'll get it in one play easily w/o stomping dead bodies. It's OK to just keep going and not waste time stomping bodies, unless you really want to unlock that achievement earlier in the game.

Read the achievement guide next time.

My only complaint of curb stomping is my body will more the corpse when I'm stomping.

...also, the get tangled in my legs when I walk away. lol

When did you guys get yours? On your first or second playthrough and at what time in the game? I am on chapter 12 and I haven't gotten it yet. I've been stomping a bit here and there but nothing obessive. I have 1 & 2 already.

10-19-2008, 11:43 PM
I got my 1000 severed limbs achievement on chapter 10 and that was without stomping on dead bodies.

It was mentioned earlier about conserving ammo. Don't. I'm a few chapters in and I have about 5 stacks of Pistol ammo and 1 extra stack of Line ammo in my bank. I'm usually a conservationist but I've been pretty liberal with the stuff. It's EVERYWHERE.


10-20-2008, 12:45 AM
Lol I tend to run out of ammo. I have to buy extra at the store. If you want to conserve ammo use the ripper. It uses less ammo than the others and you get plenty of it.

I got the 'Butcher' Achievement in my first playthrough on easy. This is not a hard achievement to get.

10-20-2008, 06:01 AM
I got mine while in chapter 8 on easy mode.

10-20-2008, 07:10 AM
Just got it at the very end of 12. Kinda late if you ask me.

10-20-2008, 12:44 PM
I got the achievement for 500 limbs right before the end of Chapter 3... I dont think I'll have any trouble getting 1,000 before the end of this game :)

what if you kill 3 guys with the weapon your working on, and you die. Did those 3 kills get erased or can you keep killing the same 3 guys and committing suicide.

12-09-2008, 05:41 PM
I got this achievement in one play through. i got it in the 10th chapter. I just stomped on all the dead bodies on all the chapters and killed the enemies like normal by removing limbs.

I got the 1000 after facing the Slug boss in Chapter 8. It was actually really funny, because I was on the cart in the long hallway and a Lurker popped up. It was lying on the ground, its tentacles flailing around. The fog covering it up. I sent two shots its way, not really aiming or anything, just firing, and the achievement popped up. I blind fired for the final 2 dismemberments.
nfgmusicPaul, the kill count does seem to continue even after death. As long as it is withing a singly playthrough, it's fine. I can try and confirm it, since I have a few of those achievements left.

curb stomping dead people count to, i do that so they wont return, and it saves ur ass
