When you get the waves of 3, stasis is your friend. If you stand in the direct middle, only two can hit you (far left and far right windows) Hope this helps!
Yep, I watched the video and done what he said to do and in the comments section on his youtube channel, someone said to try the pulse rifle alt fire. I'll give the force gun a try, but for right now I moved on to mop up the other achievements that I missed, I kept that save though to come back to it later after getting the other achievements.

Try the detonator, i did it first try without any stasis, use a few nodes on reload + capacity... its impossible to miss, the stasis will only complicate things if you struggle, forget that, the only thing you need to worry about is spin kinda fast towards the end, dont panic, you have time to reload

I used my Zealot Force Gun and got it my first try. I didn't use any stasis and only re-loaded when I got down to 1 round left. Don't know why that I couldn't get the achievement with the weapons that everyone used, but I'm finally relieved to get that monkey off my back!

Due to popular demand, pictures of the necromorph types added to the achievements that required killing a particular type

Just a slight correction, for the Fully Loaded achievement you started you need 100+ nodes to upgrade 4 weapons. If you go for the Plasma Cutter @18, Detonator @20, Ripper @22 and Pulse Rifle @22 you only need 82 nodes for the achievement.
I got it near the end of chapter 11 on my first playthrough after selling everything but those 4 weapons.

Thanks for the info, as on my second run I wanted to use the DLC weapons and now I don't have to worry about it.

Having a problem with c-section. My contact beam is too powered up maybe, it puts everything in stasis automatically when I use all fire, and seems to kill pretty much everything, this is on zealot. I suppose I should sell it and buy the base model or something.

Alright, this is a small walkthrough I threw together for "Vacuum Cleaner".

SPOILERS

Chapter 1 - This one is mandatory. It's the tutorial on how to shut the decompression off, and you get one kill for free.
Chapter 3 - Right at the beginning you get your first area you can decompress stuff. You get attacked by one of those bombing guys(With the orange exploding sack on their left arm), two children, and one normal Necromorph. Ignore these four. Kill them but do not hit the glass in back. Then, run up to the glass and you should be attacked by five kids. Kite them all until you can see all five of them in front of you(You should go back to the entrance of Chapter 3, the elevator) and then shoot the glass. You get five kills here for a total of six overall.
Chapter 4 - In the Unitologist Indoctrination room, right after you fix the fuses to allow you to enter the other room, you get attacked by three Necromorphs one you leave the fuse room, so once the three pop out, destroy the window in front of you and now you have a total of nine overall.
Chapter 7 - This is the area with the rogue AI. I can't remember where it is, but once you enter the center of the room you get barricaded in by two Detonator Mines and some explosive barrels at the end of those mines near the decompression window, so you are unable to move them. However, you can move the explosive barrels near the window prior to the mines being triggered, then you can shoot out the window yourself and get about 6 kills from all the explosive babies. The problem is that I never saw any explosive babies get sucked out personally. The amount here can range from just an extra two kills if you don't move the barrels for a total of 11, or around 15 if you try the baby method.
Chapter 9 - This is the last one. After you kill the Divider and proceed into the next room, there should be a Power Node on the right. Go to that and you will have a Black Necromorph drop on you and an exploder on the right walking toward you. Shoot out the window directly in front of you, but you really need to be fast because the area to close the window goes by extremely quickly. You should have around 13 to 17 decompression kills by this point.

You WILL need to start a new game to get the last decompression kills though.

Thanks, never thought I'd get it, but the Force Gun worked wonders. Clean Cut was giving me a fit for a bit as well, but all I did was group a couple Lurkers together then shot at their tenticles from the side and the achievement popped.

another tip for hardcore mode, you may want to put it in the guide -

wearing a suit once gives you its slots and armour bonus permanently so look out for better suits and you can just change back into the one you had previously if you prefer its status effects (easier hacking etc.)

i think for anyone with dlc or the hacker suit from ignition (15% armour, 15 slots), youll want to get the vintage suit on chapter 8 to permanently upgrade your slots to 20, and then get the advanced suit on chapter 11 to permanently upgrade your armour to 20%.

then just get that 15% health bonus armour or whatever back on!

one complaint that I would have about the guide would be that I would like it if the achievements would be listed in the order that you can unlock them in. Like chapter by chapter unlockable achievements instead of scrolling further down the list and realizing that you have missed one.

In hardcore what if I made a save and then deleted it at the next save station would that give me my third save back?

No, The game keeps track of how many saves you used. Once you use a save, you cannot get it back

seriously that's a bother, I guess they thought of everything when it came to hardcore.

If you want, I can list every achievement in the order and time you can unlock them, I just can't remember chapter-wise. Because I unlocked every single achievement that was possible in my first run except for Epic Dismemberment, Fully Loaded, Picking Favorites, and Fully Outfitted.
Alright, these are all in the order I got them, however getting "Think Fast" is possible during Chapter...2 or 3, I can't recall, and Picking Favorites along with Fully Outfitted are possible to get in your first run.
  • Shoot the Limbs!
  • Taste of your own Medicine
  • Patient on the Loose
  • First Aid
  • Going for the Distance

Buying the Vintage Suit is a complete waste of money because you get the Advanced Suit a few chapters later, and Chapter 10 is easy if you take it slow(Except for the first enemy encounter in the long tunnel, which you just need to run to the far end after killing the second Brute)

i get what you mean about the vintage suit, although i really want those slots. but even if you just get the advanced suit, its helpful to remember you can put whatever suit you like on after it and the armour & slots stay the same! ive seen no-one else mention it either.
