Exclamation Blitzkrieg: Mission Times

I thought this might come in handy for those wanting to get the Blitzkrieg achievement. I saw a few on another board requesting estimated times for each mission.

I did a run through of the game again yesterday and did it within 3-4 hours. Once you are familiar with the game mechanics and how the enemies work, this really is a piece of cake.

Here are my times for each mission, I'd say you could probably go 10 minutes over on most of them if you needed to.

Quick note: Do this on Normal, not Agent, difficulty.

The Lost: Valley - [Forgot to record it, but I'm guessing well under 10 minutes - if you do it in under this time you'll be fine)
The Lost: Fuel Storage - 16m 44s
Death of the Butcher: Cathedral - 15m 15s
Death of the Butcher: Crypt - 11m 32s
Leave A Light On: Docks - 35m 21s (doing 'Phantom' achievement (non-gun kills), so took longer)
Leave A Light On: Storage - 14m 25s
The Third Man: Sewers - 15m 40s
The Third Man: Ghetto - 15m 29s (going for Miss Merciless achievement, so took longer)
The Third Man: Prison - 16m 04s
Le Boeuf - 17m 48s
Fade To Grey: Hospital - 29m 58s
Fade To Grey: Hospital - 17m 26s

I used your times as an estimate and actually did quite good, I tried to get the last two achievements Legend and Blitzkrieg in one hit but no dice I gave up as the enemies were tougher and I had forgotten what to do a few times. So I started a new game on Normal difficulty and these are the times I got:

1. The Lost: Valley - 3m 43s
2. The Lost: Fuel Storage - 12m 43s
3 . Death of the Butcher: Cathedral - 10m 38s
4. Death of the Butcher: Crypt - 7m 48s
5. Leave A Light On: Docks - 17m 19s
6. Leave A Light On: Storage - 12m 31s
7.The Third Man: Sewers - 12m 39s
8. The Third Man: Ghetto - 10m 11s
9. The Third Man: Prison - 10m 58s
10. Le Boeuf - 16m 49s
11. Fade To Grey: Hospital - 21m 59s
12. Fade To Grey: Hospital - 10m 30s

Roughly it takes about 15 minutes a level normally less, also doing this on pro makes no difference to agent as the skill level is basically the same, you still die as quickly in either difficulties and the guards are just as stupid so its not overly to hard.

Interesting to see some times for people, I think my longest level was the docks as I messed up and had to redo one of the longer parts as the checkpoints are miles away. The rest of the levels were around 10 minutes and the last level was 10 minutes.

Just went through my second playthrough on Agent to obtain the Blitzkrieg achievement, my times for reference:

The Lost: Valley - 2m 59s
The Lost: Fuel Storage - 14m 35s
Death of the Butcher: Cathedral - 11m 57s
Death of the Butcher: Crypt - 12m 54s
Leave a Light On: Docks - 24m 15s
Leave a Light On: Storage - 13m 29s
The Third Man: Sewers - 13m 47s
The Third Man: Ghetto - 10m 51s
The Third Man: Prison - 15m 03s
Le Boeuf - 17m 16s
Fade to Grey: Hostpital - 23m 33s

Wasn't really a rushed playthrough either...

I'm actually doing this on Normal, since I went through on Agent first time and only unlocked the Agent difficulty. You can quickly run up to an enemy and take him down from behind more often I find on this difficulty and of course, increased health helps.

Phew! All done. This is nowhere near as daunting as you might think. The last stealth game I played was Metal Gear Solid 2 so I'm a bit rusty. Here are my times, played on AGENT difficulty.

The Lost: Valley - 2m 48s
The Lost: Fuel Storage - 11m 02s
Death of the Butcher: Cathedral - 8m 52s
Death of the Butcher: Crypt - 7m 02s
Leave a Light On: Docks - 17m 24s [proud of this time!!]
Leave a Light On: Storage - 11m 49s
The Third Man: Sewers - 11m 57s
The Third Man: Ghetto - 8m 24s
The Third Man: Prison - 15m 12s
Le Boeuf - 13m 06s
Fade to Grey: Hospital - 21m 18s
Fade to Grey: Village - 16m 17s

I rushed through the first 9 levels, shooting wherever possible. I used Swaggers brilliant video guide to see the key bits on each level first, which bits could be skipped, checkpoint locations, collectable, Medkit & morphine locations etc and then just blitzed through.

I took my time with the last 3. The final shootout on Village I had trouble with on AGENT, took about a dozen tries til I nailed it. I also picked up most collectables in the first 9 missions. Upgraded morphine fully first then stealth to level 3 and by the time I got to the end I has level 2 Health.

As you should know, If you need to pause quit to main menu and then select resume game. It will reset the timer to when you first hit the last checkpoint you reached. You may have to repeat a little bit to where you would have paused the game but it's no great shakes doing that I found.

Not sure if anyone will need these, but here are my times on Agent. I also got the 200 silent kills on this playthrough, and didn't feel overly rushed, but I did know the levels after my first playthrough.

The Lost: Valley - 3.34/4 kills
The Lost: Fuel Storage - 22.08/16 kills
Death of the Butcher: Cathedral - 16.06/17 kills
Death of the Butcher: Crypt - 24.41/17 kills
Leave a Light On: Docks - 31.58/32 kills
Leave a Light On: Storage - 13.54/13 kills
The Third Man: Sewers - 16.14/16 kills
The Third Man: Ghetto - 16.06/14 kills
The Third Man: Prison - 15.43/21 kills
Le Boeuf - 18.29/17 kills
Fade to Grey: Hostpital - 25.54/26 kills
Fade to Grey: Village - 16.33/11 kills

Total time - 3 hours,35 minutes and 46 seconds
Total silent kills - 204

So as you can see, I had a good hour and twenty minutes left over. I probably could have nabbed a few more silent kills as well, but I sort of gave up trying after I hit 200.

Good luck to anyone trying for this achievement.

TOTAL approx. 2 hours 37 min

i played on AGENT difficulty and it was a piece of cake to get the LEGEND & BLITZKRIEG achievements since i used swagerts guide on my first playthrough. i highly recomend using his full video guide on your 1st playthrough since it will get you every achievement (except these 2) then you know exactly were to go and were all the guys are located.

(I rounded up to the next min)

1) 3 min
2) 12 min
3) 12 min
4) 9 min
5) 20 min
6) 12 min
7) 9 min
8) 9 min
9) 14 min
10) 13 min

First I thought getting the "Blitzkrieg" achievement could be quite hard, but as it turned out the 5 hour limit is not as difficult as it seems.

Here are my times:
Level 01) - 02:27
Level 02) - 12:42
Level 03) - 10:41
Level 04) - 07:33
Level 05) - 15:21
Level 06) - 10:59
Level 07) - 08:59
Level 08) - 06:55
Level 09) - 13:39
Level 10) - 14:06
Level 11) - 20:20
Level 12) - 11:23

I just started my Agent playthrough, and I'm going for Blitzkrieg as well. I also had to get Detox and Ninja. I managed Ninja on level 3 (Cathedral) and Detox on level 4 (Crypts). So far this is no harder than on Normal. Frankly its easier because a) I'm not going for 300 kills and 200 stealth kills, b) fuck collectibles and secret whatnot, and c) I know the levels now. Its really a breeze.

Also, for anyone who doesn't know, if you die, quit to the main menu and manually load your last checkpoint. It won't record extra time that way.

My time after Crypts was 35:00. I can't be bothered to look up each chapter length. But it seems to be around average for times. This shouldn't be too hard at all.

That's my 2nd playthrough on Agent and it took 2 hours, 17 minutes, and 58 seconds. That doesn't include the hundreds of retries, though.

Also, mission times for 8 and 9 are not typos.
