I hate this Gorram achievement, not so much because its complicated, even though some of them are, its just that all the driving round and round in circles, and having to fight off bloody demons whilst trying to burn the roots gets really frustrating and boring so bloody quickly.

The game is awesome and everything about it is great, and the achievements are quality, except for this one.

Question, do you have to get all the achievements as you play through, or can I finish the game then go back and pick chapters to finsh off achievements like this one or the kill 100 humanz (if needed)?

You don't actually reach the rope. Make a sticky bomb with double-sided tape, throw it onto one of the Ratz, and then shoot it when the Ratz climbs up next to the root. Boom!

I'm at the point where i have to get 30 spectral vision points, and so far I've got 29 and the last 3 are in the far right. When I go to the top it's on a elevated position and there's no way of throwing a bottle so far up. How do I burn that thing?

Thanks

I'm not sure exactly which one you're talking about, but if you check my updated guide in this forum, there's a walkthrough for all the Roots. Its possible that you might have to do something like jump your car off a ramp to get up to it or something along those lines.

Funny...
I've found the first root (chapter 3) and burned it.
Then, I've finished the episode forgetting the other two.
Today, I went back to that chapter and went on to kill all the roots.
The first one wasn't there, so I assume that if you burn the roots once, it's done.

I got'em, I got'em!!
I've 1000'd the game.
Thought it would be way more bothersome, really. Getting a few roots in episode 7
and them tackle them in episode 8 made it easy.

Good guide, there guys!

Can I get this achievement after I finished the game by just jumping to the sequenzes? I didn't look for the roots and now I'm in episode 5 and didn't burn the roots in episode 3 and 4.

Don't even worry about them until Epsiodes 7 & 8. You will have to burn a certain number of them at the beginning of both of those episodes to be able to progress in the game. There's about ten or so at the beginning of 7 so I burned all of those and then at the beginning of 8 the rest of them show up, so just drive around and burn them all then. I just finished it up today and I'm pretty sure that's the best way to do it

Hi there,

I am having trouble with 2 last roots what i need to burn..


COPY FROM ACHIEVEMENT GUIDE:

8-7. Work your way back north to find another root on an elevated island in the middle of an open plain. You need to jump a car off of the earth ramp with the two fires at its base. This will launch you over the gap and onto the elevated island. Once there, you can burn the root however you like.


I am 100% sure that i try to jump from right place because as you are close to the root and that ramp it zooms in on that to give you hint that there you must make jump. Yesterday i attemted about 15-20 times and everytime soon as i land on the island i die for some reason. Where not able to jump out the car even. What the hell i am doing wrong there?

COPY FROM ACHIEVEMENT GUIDE:

7-2. Travel eastward on the main road until you get to the second root. When you get there, it will be on another ledge off to the right of the road. You’ll see a ruined piece of road between the road and the ledge with a burning car on it. When you’re facing the root, there’s a ramp of rock off to the right. Go back down the road to pick up some speed and jump your car off the ramp. If you do it correctly, the car will land on the ruined piece of road and fling the burning car up onto the root.


This one i try only few times and hit the car also, but it did not fly anywhere.. and if i look the area and positioning of these places in my mind i can not even picture how that burning car could fly to the root. What part exacly i should it on that car then? Any videos about that somewhere?

Thanks in advance for any kind of answers!

Can tell this is proving quite frustrating amongst others. Not looking forward to finishing this all myself.
