Not bad for a human

If you keep by the ammo crate she'll launch 2 attacks. If she tilts her head back shoot a rocket and dive into cover and she'll do some sort of sonic wave attack. If she raises her arm fire a rocket and dodge and immediately fire again if you get hit dont worry as long as there are no pregnators around you'll survive. If the second round goes in you'll stun her allowing you to get a full volley of rockets in. Near the end she'll start calling octabrains one at a time move to the other side and use pipe bombs on them. She'll remain open for rockets attacks now until you kill her just keep stocked on pipe bombs and rpg.

octacide

Originally I used the same method but found it a pain in the ass. Instead hide in the booth and throw out pipe bombs. Even though you cant see them they'll get sucked up and then blow them as close to the octabrains as possible then jump out for a restock when your empty. Its easier than getting devastator rockets fired back.

This guy talks RUBBISH, he doesnt even have the 1K. The game is "CAKE" on INSANE as he says, yet he hasnt finished the game yet...Hmmmmm

The game can throw curve alls at you on insane and the quick deaths combined with the horendous load times will nearly make u wanna shoot yourself!!

You do know that on the Queen Bitch fight, during the first part, you can throw pipe bombs onto the jump pads and detonate them when they get behind the queen's armored arms to open her up, right? You don't have to wait for her to scream or try to squash you to attack her. Also, you can do the pipe bomb method to take out the octabrains on this fight, but I think they get way too close to you to risk it. They're in better range that a few good shotgun blasts should take care of them, IMO.

I do agree on the Octaking strategy though, that's what I used combined with a holoduke and a beer, haha.

I was doing that at first with the queen but was finding it took longer and the cover was better on the other side plus the pregnators dont land as close and can be hit wi the rpg. Though I jump back to the other side when the octabrains come out cause their too close.

just beat the energy leech, it's the easiest boss as it moves so slow, as long as u don't stay still and get hit direct then it isn't a problem to kill it, just get the RPG nearby and lock on and keep shooting it, u can get ammo from the 3 nearby crates, also remember to use oxygen from the vents, once the leech is down press X on the leech to open it then keep pressing A to drop a bomb into it, that's it.

the leech burst out of the 2nd vent u have to place the bomb on in the underwater level.

keep on the move though as it does serious damage if it hits u direct.

I did natural disaster with Mighty Foot on the first group of pigs

Kills with thrown objects can be done in the Hive by throwing stuff at the unhatched pregnator pods.

Also gunslinger is easy enough to do on Hard difficulty on your first playthrough

Does anyone know if it is possible to still get the Gunslinger achievement if you happened to drop, but then picked it up right away?

Thanks. It's not a major problem it's just an achievement I would rather not have to go through again.

I did gunslinger on come get some so I quite often dropped it so I had to weapons from cover then go back to it. Remember to pick it up before any checkpoint cause if you die you wont spawn back with it and it'll disappear from the floor.

reloading checkpoints if you lose or drop the gun works for gunslinger.

For the Gunslinger achievement, I went back and played the first two levels of the game, but you don't even carry a gun (except the Devastator) in those levels (I even hit Y when fighting the Cycloid and it didn't cycle my weapons). Are those levels necessary? And would I have to replay "The Duke Cave" and play through the whole level with the pistol, or am I fine just ending that level carrying it?

The guide is not clear on this.

You get the pistol in The Duke Cave, so any levels before don't count since you don't have it.

You can get the achievement in one playthrough, without having to go replay through levels, so no you don't have to reload the level. Just don't drop it once you get the pistol and you will get the achievement.

Could blowing up 5 dropships achievement be glitched in a good way? i got it at the end of Duke Burger Part 3 when those 2 big fat guys that shoots rockets at you come in. Popped right after the battle even though i didn't shoot 5 gunships, dropships down.

Maybe they count as gunships and you had shot down three previously? Strange.

The way I got it was on the Mothership Battle level. I kept dying, but had shot down at least two dropships each life. When I had respawned the third time, the first dropship I destroyed I got the achievement.

You might want to put in the guide that you can reload checkpoints to get this instead of on different levels.

Also for Baron Von Nukem (Shoot down 20 alien fighters), you can also get that achievement in this level if you reload the checkpoint. It keeps track of your previous kills.

well i had tried using the enforcer gun to shoot down the dropships when they came in, but they still flew off and all that. So idk if they blew up later on or something...but seeing as how the achievement popped from the other 2 enemies makes me think they count as gunships somehow.

GUNSLINGER Perfectly fine to drop the pistol, swap it for another gun in times of need but dont forget to pick it up again before you carry on with the level, you must have this gun in your possession at the very end of the game (even after defeating final boss) to get the cheevo innit.

You missed a ego point thing in your guide. On 'Damn! It's Late' after the popcorn drama you meet a little kid who wants your autograph, sign the book for ego boost.
