Finally clarifacation on switching difficulties on the last battle!

Alright here is my story.
I run through the game in one go and get 48 of 51 of the achievements.
Leaving only,
Avid Inventor
Brass Balls &
Seriously Good at This.

I beat the game on easy the first time then as I started to play through it again on hard I remembered.
The whole game on easy I never used a vita-chamber.
I stoped, puzzled, and loaded my save which is right at the battle against Fontaine.
Then I switched my difficulty to Hard.
Killed Fontaine and what do you know?
*Achievements unlocked 2 for 140G*

IF YOU BEAT THE GAME ON EASY AND CHANGE THE DIFFICULTY ON THE LAST BATTLE YOU WILL UNLOCK THE "Seriously Good at This" (if you didnt use a vita chamber you'll get brass balls also!)

I don't know why in a year this was never figured out but whatever at least now I know!

*EDIT* ok some people are saying this still Isin't working!

Try beating Atlas on easy then reloading your save.
Change it to hard and kill him then report what happens please!

Sorry for anyone who is having trouble with this.

Hmmm...I like this. I truly hope this is 100% true. I beat it on hard...but used vitachambers...and this was before the update so there was no Brass Balls achievement then. I'll give it a try...I truly love the game anyway.

so to clarify you can get the brass and diffculty achievments by fighting the last battle on hard diffculty also you cant have been been killed and respawn in the vita chamber.

Complete the game on easy without dieing (Using a Vita Chamber)
Make sure you have plenty of ammo come the final battle with Fontaine.
Kill Fontaine and complete the game.
When on the main menu click continue
When the game has loaded, hit start and click options.
Change the difficulty to Hard and kill Fontaine.

= Achievement unlocked

Thats pretty sweet, nice find. I'm gonna go do that now. I wish I knew everything I know now when I started my 1st playthrough. It's entirely possible to get EVERY SINGLE achievement in one shot. I just need one more though to get Save Every Little Sister and Brass Balls.

Edit: I just can't get this to work. It's possible that not using Vita-Cambers has something to do with getting "Seriously Good..." I know it shoudnt but I have done this several times and it does not work for me. Something to do with DLC or updates maybe? Oh well I will still play through and get it along with Brass Balls.

This also didn't work for me. I completed on easy first time and have a save as you get out the lift to fight Fontanie. Switch to hard and defeted him but no achievement unlocked. Tried this serval times but no luck?

It must have glitched for you because many people have already said that this DOES NOT work. Kudos on getting it to work for you though :P

maybe when you load the save, as well as switching it to hard, you should disable vita chambers. anyway, i'm playing through on hard, and i wonder if right before the battle with fontaine i can turn vita chambers off, defeat him without dying, and get the achievement. haha, probably not.
