Man this looks like the hardest achievement out of all of The Orange Box games, and if not the hardest, one of the hardest. It also helps if you use the invincibility cheat, it makes it easier.

Agreed, I determinedly tried to make it through on Normal but those hunters kept eating my lunch. And even after reluctantly turning it down to Easy it was still some tough sledding. At least it was just challenging and not plain obnoxious like Little Rocket Man.

Holy fuck this is the hardest achievement I've ever seen. I thought delivering bob was bad. I've managed to kill 2 striders but I cant fucking drive the goddamned car, I cant ever seen to fucking kill any hunters no matter what, and I can't aim the bombs for shit. I don't even know how I'm going to finish this episode, nevermind get this achievement.

Enjoy your achievement you didn't earn.
Granted, Valve left the option to cheat and get achievements in the game, but anybody could do this with invincibility. Honestly.

I wish I knew about the cheats when I was going through the game.

Why are people saying this is taking them an hour to do? Thanks to this guide I easy did it first attempt in 30 minutes. 3 or 4 reloads but I'd of been here for weeks without the guide. Great job.

This achievement was a bitch to obtain. I don't think I could have done it without this guide. Very well done. Thanks.

Aww dear, you butt hurt much? Nothing shows if you did it with or without so its purely in your head. Personally i've used invicibility from the 4th level in HL2 original after i got stuck in a tunnel with god knows how many hackbots and no ammo at all, left the game for over 6 months, finally came back and im here to enjoy the story and pick up some achievements.

Enjoy being on your high horse, enjoy the pride it gave you for all of 5mins to know you beat this without cheating, now im gonna carry on and enjoy the story, finish the game and move onto my next game without a blink :P



Thanks for the guide, i will give this a shot but having just done Bob on the first playthrough i might give this a miss

I won't rip on those that did do it with invincibility - but I'm proud to have done it without. It's my most proud achievement Although it's less about getting killed and more just not making it in time.

Extremely easy achievement to obtain. I was able to do it in about 20-30 mins. Yes, I did use the invincibility cheat. I also used it from the start of HL2 and I don't feel bad at all for doing it. It made the game much more relaxed and enjoyable. Also used cheats to finish off portal too

This achievement is incredibly frustrating. It's the only Half Life achievement that made me resort to cheating and even then it still took me two hours to get it.

I did thanks to save/reloading a lot. Driving is a pain. Save rockets, MP5 grenades and Energy Balls for the hunters. Sending them trees with the gravity gun helps a lot too.

I did this in about 45 minutes thanks to this guide. I set the game on easy and just did the old save/reload/save/reload/save/reload. Worth it though. 35 points I'm proud of

Lol, all people need to do is watch a video guide, use the invincibility cheat and you're set. i can't believe i didn't do that 3 years ago when this was driving me mad.
