To all those who can't seem to get the Handyman Achievement

Hi Guys,

I followed the guide on how to do this but still couldn't get it, then I combined a half empty bottle with a full one and voila...achievement unlocked.

Thought I would let you guys know in case that is what you were missing.

Also manually reload the gun...ie shoot 12 bullets (for the magnum) and then go into your jacket and combine the bullets with the gun.

Hope this helps at least a few of you....I know I was going nuts at the thought of having to do those combinations again!

Thank you so much man! I was trying to find possible ways as to why I haven't gotten this achievement since it was the last one and I just want to be done with this game. I figure I'd give this a shot and just emptied one bottle halfway and filled it up with the other and got it! I was surprised but I'm SO glad I am done with this game.

Go to the very northwest corner of the map. There's a small hut next to the obelisk where you find the Root of Evil. You can find a blood pack there. Wrap it with double-sided tape and, hopefully, that gets your achievement for you.

Talking replay...

so if you missed a combo & you reload chapters to get where supplies are will it count toward the combos you made...

Thanks for the assist, got the achievement without having to go through the entire list for some reason? All I had to do wa go through the combo's that were acheivements themselves and then combo the bullets from jacket to magnum and I got it?
And if anyone wants a disc with absolutely ZERO glitches mine seemes to be perfect, I've played through the game twice and my girl has done it twice also and we have not hit a single glitch yet? If it can help anyone else then pm me and we'll arrange some way for you to get it

The "Bottle to Bottle" (had to do both plastic and glass) just unlocked mine. Thanx for the info, it saved me a big headache!

My suggestion would be to reload your weapon if you've run out of options. Throw any ammo you have on the ground and smoke the stuff you've got so that your weapon changes its appearance. Pick it up and reload; that's how i got mine after manual reloading a partially empty gun tons of times.

Do you have to save?

I did almost all combos on the list at the end of Level 3, but then for some reason, while driving the car, the screen went black and I died.
Now that I know I've done everything, including the suggestions on this thread, nothing has unlocked.

So should I redo all the combos and then save to be sure?

Finally unlocked...

After combining everything according to the guide, the "Handyman Carnby" achievement unlocked when I put this combo together:

Double Sided Tape + Flare


Achievement unlocked.
I don't think you have to save after you do several of the combos. I put together almost all of them, according to the guide, but I died after wards. I was going to do them again, but it had unlocked when I did the above.
