these should be the last numbers you need for the weapon upgrade costs (there is no rank V):


Hobby Horse

Rank III: 625

Teapot Cannon
Rank II: 525




the DLC weapons are separate upgrades, adding an effect to each weapon (such as extra damage or more ammo) and they are upgraded along with the base weapons (so a level IV Vorpal Blade will also give you level IV Vorpal Cleaver, and vice versa)

Thanks for the last info! Was going to get it tomorrow after work if it someone hadn't already Thought you had to upgrade each weapon 4 times, my bad.

Not sure which DLC you're talking about, but I assume it's not the dress/weapon pack.

My 'ol lady downloaded American McGee's Alice with the code and played it on "xbox 1" with her hdd. My hdd crashed so my gamertag is currently on a USB. With her hdd in "xbox 1", I plugged in the USB signed into my gamertag and was able to play it. Hope that helps.

Am I able to do Off With Her Head pt. 2 in a new playthrough or have I missed any chance of getting this achievement? I already completed it, but at the time I didn't know about the achievement attached to it so I didn't do it in the required time...

You can just use chapter select and go from there. That's how I did it.

Might be worth adding to the start of the guide a note about the achievement for finishing the game using Hysteria only once, as I'm sure there are some that will want to do i one play and having the extra weapons dlc makes nightmare a lot easier, so very possible to do everything in one play.

I missed this one when I scanned the list hand had to start over , lucky I was still on chapter 1.

Great job and on the guide though, thanks very much

For the Pulling strings achievement. You can use the Hysteria anytime Dress (DLC). Achievement does pop.

Just make sure you have the Level Headed achievement unlocked already, then go back to Chapter select.

That's Using Your Head - 20
Complete Off With Her Head Part 2 in under 6 minutes.

*I happen to be recording when I completed this even though I messed up a lot it will show how you can complete it even with so many mistakes.

If you're going to play through the game a second time for the Nightmare completion achievement, is there any reason to not play the first time through on Easy?

This seems to indicate that online pass isn't tied to gamertag but is instead treated like normal DLC. Was your wife's profile signed in when you accessed AM's Alice?

I just wanted to thank you for all the work that you've put into this. Especially the collectibles guide which made this pain in the ass achievement so much easier.

First, he will be a gaseous form and float around until materializing bombs to throw at you. Use your Pepper Grinder to blow them up and stun him.

Second, he be in gaseous form and float around getting close to you. When he does, he will strike at you with a broken bottle.

Third he will burrow underground and tunnel for a while. Get up close and use the Hobby Horse to stun him.

Fourth he will burrow underground and tunnel while getting close to you. When he does he surprise you with a quick slash from his bottle, then float up in the air and charge a strong attack.

After defeating him you will unlock the achievement. If you don't, restart the checkpoint, or reload the checkpoint "Lost Souls Locker" after completing the chapter.

(VIDEO GUIDE NEEDED)
i just got this one in Radula Room 3 in Queensland, i ran around the outside as you suggested in your collectible guide and it popped when i finished the room

I think my game may be glitched. I'm at the 3rd stage of the Dollmaker fight yet he only tries to grab me once. After that, his hands just float around randomly.

EDIT: It works now, I had to dashboard.

How to start New Game+...?

This is weird... I beat the game on Normal, and want to do my second playthrough on Nightmare... but I can't find the option to do a New Game+! I'm confused, because just last night I saw the option in the main menu, right below "Continue Game" and now it's not there... :S I think Alice is toying with my mind...

if there is a continue game there wouldnt be a new game option, you sure you didnt already start your nightmare play last night?

otherwise something may not have saved correctly (or you loaded from an MU instead of the HD or vice versa)

I tried hitting "Continue" and it just took me to the credits screen... so it apparently did save that I at least beat the game. I tried watching the credits again and the option still doesn't show up :\ I don't know about the question of loading, it's never asked me to select a device or anything so...

Well someone helped me figure out the problem I was having with "New Game+" not showing up. Thanks to uhKillswitch! I wonder if the option only remains on the main menu immediately after you beat the game, and if you quit the game and come back, it won't be there anymore. Fighting the final boss again via Chapter Select fixes it. Or maybe this only happened to me for no apparent reason.

Anyway sorry for the double post but I shared this in the thread I posted about that problem because I discovered something that I think would be extremely useful for your guide with regards to Level-Headed.

You do not have to do an entire playthrough without using Hysteria for the Level-Headed achievement to pop. Once you've beaten the game, simply do Chapter Select and fight the Dollmaker without using Hysteria and the achievement will pop. This is how I got it.

This is very easy to do, if you use the rabbit he will focus on that leaving you to zip in and out without taking damage.

Here is a video I made for the Pulling Strings (achievement) today.

P.S. just realized you can probably use the Fleshmaiden Dress and make this even easier as I got it with the Checkmate Dress.


Here is a video I made for Ship of Fools (achievement) as well.

Caterpillar's Plot belongs in the earlier achv. You must do that stage to unlock Out of the Woods. At least it did on mine.

Are bottles necessary?

I don't see them listed in any achievement? Is it necessary to collect all of them for 1000 gamerscore. Am I missing something? I just finished Chapter 1 and got confused around bottle 15 and 16. I got to 16 as stated in the guide but my counter stayed on 15. My on screen counter said there were 18 but this guide said 19 in Chapter 1. Can someone help me out here or clarify if I even need to worry about bottles for 1000 gamerscore? Thanks and great guide II OE II.

no, bottles arent needed for 1000g, they unlock concept art and are needed for 100% completion, but no achievements

Thanks for the clarification. I guess I won't worry about the bottles the rest of the game. It definitely makes the Collectibles hunt less tedious for 1000g. Again, thanks for the great guide II OE II.
