any chance of more detail for the second part of "put de lime in de coconut"? missed it, first was easy and obvious

also, i just got upto the tornado in the final chapter and got stuck in a checkpoint loop where i was stuck with just one battery and one regular flare, wtf, impossible to beat it with such shit supplys, so i guess that means i will have to play through the entire chapter again right?

ep 5 after you saw the posessed parade float, continue up the streets and go left into the diner and use the jukebox again.

At the end of episode, there will be a showdown on the Anderson's stage where Taken will come by the boatload. I will make a video of this one, but it's relatively easy if you play it smart - use the light, use flares, watch your flanks, use flashbangs, etc.

Probably a stupid question but I wanted to check, I've finished the game on Hard with about 80% of the Manuscript pages. When I do my Nightmare playthrough will the missing pages I pick up on this playthrough that aren't Nightmare specific count towards the "Picking Up After Yourself" achievement?

I was wondering this myself as well. Is it best to go back and finish picking up the manuscripts with chapter select before starting the nightmare run?

BTW, great guide Webb! Cheers for the help!

i dont think the nightmare ones count towards the normal achievement, i aint done it but the wording on the achievement is rather strict.

when i can im going to chapter select the pages and coffee ive missed. since ive completed nightmare ill chapter reload on that aswell.

Question

Quick question regarding nightmare mode.

Can you replay the chapters and use nightmare to get the game completion, ort do you need to start a new one again?

Also if you have found the manuscripts, in normal, do you have to find them again (seeing how its a new game?)

Lastly, on the last level there are two tin can pyramids.

I'm pretty sure you need to start a new game. That's what I did.
No you don't need to pick them up again, you can read them at any time, even from the main menu once they're picked up

You can collect any missing manuscript pages in nightmare mode on your 2nd playthrough and yes, you can replay any chapters after you have finished the game.

I might as well wait for a guide then before retrying on nightmare. I missed a bunch of collectables.

970'd it
An Idyllic Small Town glitched for me.
I would give it a 3/10 though, Nightmare was easy after going through the game on normal, did the other Chapter based Achievements on Nightmare.

I have created a Excel spreadsheet with all the collectibles. Makes it much easier to mark off which ones you have you done. They are the ones from this list so there may be some missing. If you would like a copy I can email it to you.

It means that you have to activate the jukebox in the diner in Chapter 1 (first time you enter it) and in Chapter 5 where you can enter it for the second time.

Don't know if it unlocks when you do it in 2 different playthroughts, i did it on one playthrough

for drink em both up i loaded a chapter to get the second one (as i missed it) and still got the achievement so i dont think it matters if you do them on different play throughs as long as you activate them both at some point you will get it

there is a manuscript in the very back of the diner anyway (chapter 5) so its not really missable if your going for all the achievements

"Collateral Carnage"

I got this achievement when I was walking around with the Sheriff and Barry shot a flare at the Taken in the doorway (this is just before you see him wearing his Christmas light outfit lol). Looks like Barry's kill counted as an "indirect" kill for me!

Hey awesome guide. Just a suggestion for you though, the kill x number of Taken with each weapon achievements can be farmed. Just get a few kills in an area with lots of enemies close to a checkpoint (I recommend Chapter 3; Ransom in the train yard).

Simply kill some taken, check stats, restart checkpoint. Rinse and repeat.

I used this method for all weapon kills and the 1000 birds.

Rather than make a video for this one, I'm going to give a brief rundown of potential sticky parts and what to do. Honestly, you shouldn't need this, it's bloody easy.

If you're loading up an episode to do it, it's episode 5, the first chapter, "Night Life in Bright Falls." If you prepare and don't waste powerful weapons, then there aren't many tricky moments truth be told. The two potential tricky spots are:

The church defence and the helicopter defence. One mid mission and the other at the end. In order to unlock the achievement you must finish it, from the police station to the helicopter, without dying or restarting. Simple as.

In regards to the church defence and the helicopter defence; just make sure you load up on all the equipment before you move to close to Sarah and Barry. Otherwise, the Taken come. If you scavenge the lot before hand of both areas, it should be easy.

The church - the best way to do this is the hunting rifle and flash grenade combo on the left hand steps (with your back to the church). It should be easy as Sarah will be on hand to help out.

The helicopter - you're on your own here. Just use the flash grenades wisely, shoot the gan canisters to save flash grenades, and try to turn on the lights whenever possible. Stay on the pad as well. If you stick to that, you'll do fine.

Oh, and do them on normal... It's obvious, but hey, it needs to be said.
wait, you only need to survive up until you get in the helicopter? i played through all of episode five without dying up until i accidentally jumped off the edge at the floodgates X) and didn't get this achievement. is it glitched or can it only be earned via replay?

Don't know why you didn't get, but it can be earned via replay and it's not that hard, so no worries

Yeah, i farmed them in Episode 3, where you have to disable to generator to get over the electronic fence. Its a good place to get those environmental kills, the car kills and the taken object kills as well.
