Spray Bottle + Double Sided Tape + Bandages + Flare
Spray Bottle + Double Sided Tape + Bandages + Glowstick
Spray Bottle + Double Sided Tape + Bandages + Bullets

there are two best locations for doing this

1ST area: Near center of map by lake, its an underground storage area (has big circle design near it)

2ND area: Lowest left area of map big house has flood lights outside of building. has fire hose you use to climb down from the 2nd floor (near first root of evil)

thanks for the guide. having a bit of a problem though:

Spray Bottle + Double Sided Tape + Bandages + Flare
Spray Bottle + Double Sided Tape + Bandages + Glowstick
Spray Bottle + Double Sided Tape + Bandages + Bullets

Bandages won't combine with any of the sprays i tried, is this a mistake?

also where can i fin water for these:

Empty Glass Bottle + Water
Empty Plastic Bottle + Water

EDIT: NEVER MIND, I FOUND THE WATER- YOU CAN BUY IT IN VENDING MACHINES, SUCH AS IN THE BUILDING WITH FIRST ROOTS OF EVIL. ALSO GOT THE ACHIEVEMENT, SO BANDAGES IN THE ABOVE COMBOS MUST BE WRONG

...hehe :) your guide is better :) because it's quicker but mine is with 97% of the elements in the game :drunk. And and believe me...when I first go for that ach. I have all the combinations done except the blood pack...as soon as I combined A flare with a blood pack..poof..the ach. unlocked. I don't know if there is a bug...but that's my story...

*p.s. there is an error in my guide..I will edit it with red, sorry for the typo

JBURNICLE 06-23-2008 04:14 PM

Thanks for that, it helped out alot. It turned out all i had to do is tape a blood pack up lol :D.

Yes, you can skip the Episodes. Once you have done the combination for an episode skip to next one (just save your progress). Now for your 2 missing combinations...just load up Episode #4 - Sequence #2 and then just search the nearby zone. It's there...just search with atention. You can use any guide you want...I don;t wanna make the other guide look bad (it's a good guide) but...you see...sometimes you need the blood pack to get that ach. sometimes you don't. In my case (and JBURNICLE case :D)...we needed the blood pack...It's choise :Bounce:

Did you do all of the above combos or just the combos needed for the achievements?

i did all the above on Ronan's list mate! but didnt get it str8 away had to have a mess around with flares and glowsticks and tape!!! just trial and error keep at it

Elite Hero 06-23-2008 10:17 PM

I'm curious surely you should only have to make one combination let me explain that a little better if both;

Glowstick + Taped Medical Spray = Glowing Spray &
Glowstick + Taped Anti-Rust Spray = Glowing Spray,

make glowing spray surely you only need to make 1 variety of this as glowing spray would be the combination? I don't know but am just putting it out there but to me this would make sense.

Emergency Flare + Taped Mosqito Spray = Flare Spray
Emergency Flare + Taped Medical Spray = Flare Spray
Emergency Flare + Taped Anti-Rust Spray = Flare Spray

you see what I am getting at....

M85A21 06-23-2008 10:20 PM

You're right because all I did after finishing the game was putting sticky tape on a bloodpack and "Achievement Unlocked".
And I KNOW I didn't do some of those.

Deadcolt what's the best way for me to unlock this one?

M85A21 06-23-2008 10:29 PM

Go to the top left of the map on chapter 8, there should be a small hut with plenty of items inside (Even the Bloodpack) but it doesn't have a flare or Glowstick (But you should have used these by now) so just go there mate.

Elite Hero 06-23-2008 11:00 PM

LOL all i did as well once i had finish the game was tape up a blood pack. :p

GAME DONE 1000gs Thanks for the guide anyway's. XD

M85A21 06-23-2008 11:04 PM

Bloodpack FTW!
Well done Elite.

Ben Sharpe 06-24-2008 10:41 AM

Flare ftw, taped up a flare after pulling my hair out last night trying to get it and finally popped up there, 1000G ftw :D

ChinaWhiteII 06-24-2008 01:19 PM

These are the ones i did to get 1000.

Double-Side Tape + Medical Spray = Taped Medical Spray
Double-Side Tape + Explosive Plastic Bottle = Taped Plastic Bottle
Ammo Box (For all guns) + 9MM Gun = Reloaded 9MM Gun
Bandages + Explosive Plastic Bottle = Plastic Molotov Cocktail
Double-Side Tape + Glowstick = Taped Glowstick
Glowstick + Taped Medical Spray = Glowing Spray
Explosive Plastic Bottle + 9MM Gun = Fire Bullets
Handkerchief + Explosive Plastic Bottle = Plastic Molotov Cocktail
Box of batteries + Flashlight = Flashlight 100%
Double-Side Tape + Anti-Rust Spray = Taped Anti-Rust Spray
Glowstick + Taped Anti-Rust Spray = Glowing Spray
Double-Side Tape + Emergency Flare = Emergency Flare
Taped Glass Bottle + Taped Plastic Bottle = Taped Plastic Bottle
Bandages + Taped Glass Bottle = Glass Molotov Cocktail
Handkerchief + Taped Glass Bottle = Glass Molotov Cocktail
Double-Side Tape + Mosqito Spray = Taped Mosqito Spray
Ammo Box (For all guns) + A4 Magnum = Reloaded A4 Magnum Gun
Explosive Glass Bottle + A4 Magnum Gun = Fire Bullets
Double-Side Tape + Blood Pack = Taped Blood Pack
Explosive Plastic Bottle + Explosive Plastic Bottle = Explosive Plastic Bottle (if you have two full bottles of fuel, combine one with your bullets to waste some fuel, then combine one full bottle with another to "refill" the other bottle)


Just a note I never touched the water bottle in this game or even came across one.

Some of them are doubled up by the way. For example, if you put a glow stick on any spray, you don't need to do it for medical, mosquito, as they're one of a kind a "spray" it also covers explosive bottles and glass, as I've never put a glow stick on a explosive bottle or a glass one I've only put it on a rust spray.

In all honesty, you will do much of the combo's throughout the game, as you need to to get past most of the areas, such as taping a bottle to a door to blow it up, and later areas where you need use a molotov to get past certain area's the only one I needed to do was the glow stick on a spray, but the list I show above is all that I did in the game.

ezekiel 08 06-24-2008 03:03 PM

Thanks for the guide! The game isn't out yet in Australia, but when it is, I'll be getting it for sure.

Azgannar 06-25-2008 01:45 PM

i actually dont know how to get this now, i followed ronans guide and i had already taped a bloodpack..dunno what else to try :( (its my last one needed for the 1000)

EDIT: i think it just glitched temporarily or somethin cos when i turned it back on the next combo i made gave me the ach. (i think it was something simple like handkerchief + plastic bottle lol)

and now 1000 woooo :D

Crimson Ridley 06-26-2008 09:02 PM

Thank you so much, 1000g from AITD. BTW you two guide makers, you need to add Bullets + Gun, because that was the combination I last did to get the Achievement, so thank you for that ChinaWhiteII, I'm so glad I read your post. :)

_DoTTeR_ 06-26-2008 10:29 PM

Do you not start making weapons/builds until episode 3? just got game today.

thankfully i just read your post! And having tried it for 2hours i got it just from reloading :woop: kudos to you and chinawhite!

Pogo27 06-27-2008 05:20 PM

Okay, if anyone wants definitive evidence that you don't need to do all the combinations to get this achievement, check my profile (Pogo27) sometime in the next few days.

I've got "Handyman Carnby" despite not having "Useless!"

And heck, even after I do get useless, the achievements are still sorted in the order you got them in, and I'll almost definitely get some other achievements between now and "Useless!"

Unfortunately, I didn't make a list of every combination I made, but some combinations that I know I didn't make include all of the empty glass bottles. I never got an emergency flare attached to a glass bottle, only plastic.

I think that you should probably get "Handyman Carnby" eventually just by playing through the game and using ingenuity to make various combinations, etc. Everytime I was at a relatively safe point in the game with plenty of items, I got out my sticky tape and tried every possible combination.

Monkeyman 8322 06-27-2008 06:11 PM

Good to know. Thanks

Raining Light 06-27-2008 07:46 PM

Nice guides.
Do you actually have to USE the combo or just MAKE it?
