Nightmare Defeater - 50
Cleared the main game on the "No Mercy" difficulty level.

Complete all acts on this difficulty to earn this achievement. It will unlock after the cut-scene that is Act 9, which takes place after the credits, so do not turn off the game until you watch it.

It is recommended that you find all collectibles on this playthrough, so you can get through the higher settings faster.

Escape From the Grasp of Evil - 30
Obtained an A-Rank in Act 10, Scene 1.

To get an A rank, you must complete the scene quickly, and with a decent, but not necessarily high kill count. Move from area to area swiftly, stopping only to kill those enemies directly in your way. Keep your arms down unless you need to block or attack; the auto-aim will become frustrating quickly, as it will spin you around in directions you may not want to go.

Scene 1 takes place in the catacombs and graveyard from Act 2. An A rank can be achieved with at least 37,120 points, but lower might be possible.

Here’s a great video walkthrough by YouTube user Landscape97.


Live to Tell the Tale - 30
Obtained an A-Rank in Act 10, Scene 2.

Scene 2 begins in the TV room from Act 3, and takes you through the bedrooms, ending in the booby-trapped underground passage. There are very few enemies in this scene; your main task will be avoiding one-hit kill traps. An A rank can be achieved with at least 38,820 points, but lower might be possible.

Here’s a great video walkthrough by YouTube user Landscape97.


Fight or Flight - 30
Obtained an A-Rank in Act 10, Scene 3.

Scene 3 takes place in the forest from Act 5. It can be tricky to navigate your first time through, as there are multiple portals you can take, levers to pull, and an item to find. There are tons of enemies here, and it is best to avoid combat when possible, especially in the area with the hordes of chef creatures. Keep your arms down and kick enemies away, killing only those necessary to clear a path. An A rank can be achieved with at least 52,360 points, but lower might be possible.

Sharp-Eyed Traveler - 20
Discovered all "Secret Events."

There are 12 Secret Events throughout Acts 1 through 8. Find them all to earn this achievement. Your discovered events carry over from each playthrough, so if you miss any, you can replay Acts from the Scene Select menu, or find them up on another playthrough.

For a list of all Secret Events, click HERE.

Endless Nightmare - 60
Survived the Endless Nightmare.

The Endless Nightmare is Act 10, and must be unlocked by first completing the game on any difficulty. The difficulty setting for Act 10 is "Torture" and cannot be changed. The goal is to complete each stage in the time allotted, without dying. You only get one life to complete each scene, so if you die, you must start over again.

To get this achievement, you must complete all three scenes in Act 10, which are selectable from the Scene Select menu. See the three achievements for obtaining an A rank on each scene for more.

Master of the Nightmare - 60
Cleared the "TORTURE" difficulty without dying.

"Torture" is the hardest difficulty, and must be unlocked by first completing the game on either "Humane" or "No Mercy." To select this setting, choose New Game at the Main Menu.

You can die in one or two hits on this setting. The key to surviving is to avoid fights whenever possible, and not to get overwhelmed by groups of enemies. If you are injured, back away if you have room, or block by keeping your arms up. You can still die while blocking if you are already near death.

If you do die, either shut-off your Xbox or quit to the dashboard before YOU ARE DEAD appears on screen. You will have to continue from your last checkpoint, but your death will not count.

Complete all acts on this difficulty without dying to earn this achievement. It will unlock after the cut-scene that is Act 9, which takes place after the credits, so do not turn off the game until you watch it.

To minimize your playthroughs, it is recommended that you go for this achievement at the same time as "Nightmare Vanquisher" - clearing the game on "Torture" difficulty.
