Kickin' It Achievement?

Who has been awarded this?

Kickin it 10G - Defend the Lurker grab attack 10 times

The lurkers are the necromorphed babies.

The obvious strategy would be to play on easy/normal and shoot everything BUT the lurkers in each room. Then make sure you health isn't too low, let them let jump on your face and mash the A button.
If you commit, should only take a chapter or two.

Only on chapter 5 (normal) and I have been jumped a few times already without trying.

Any else got details on damage given/recieved for each of the different difficult levels??

Cool

On "Easy" they seem to take anywhere from half a bar of health to a full bar of health, and I'm using the Level 5 "Elite" suit.

Does that help you any? I've been jumped 3 times. And I don't like it... been avoiding it... But... since there's an Achievement for it... I may just let the buggers do it to me.

Hmm we need confirmation on if it keeps count if you die.

I haven't died yet... But I suppose I could try it, next time I run into them.

I'm only halfway through Level 2 as of right now. I may try it tomorrow for ya.

I think it does count if you die because when I was doing the gravity panel achievement I had killed three baddies in the panels then accidentally walked into one myself so I was reloaded right outside that are and once I killed two or three more in the same fashion I had the achievement.

I like to let all the different beasts attack me as long as my health is decent because I like to see the different animations for their attacks and my defense to it.

I think if you know it is about to jump, you can be prepared and start to mash A immediately, and it won't do massive damage.

On medium with elite armor and two HP upgrades, one attack did ~1/6 of my health bar (so hard to tell). ( 120 / 6 ) * 10/9 = 22.22
So 20-25dmg by my rough calculations. I will try to confirm this, as I could be way off.

It prolly won't count if they kill you by "grabbing"/jumping on you since... of course... you wouldn't have defended yourself like the achievement description implies...

This achievement had been bugging me for a while now. Im taking it slow in the game but I was wondering if it kept count after you died so in chapter 2, after you blow up the pile of junk, you have 3 lurker fights in a row, I let them grab me for all 3 and then died with a standard slasher, I then could fight the last lurker again and then die, etc. Well i was keeping count and I did it about 13 times and no achievement. Im just going to try and get it normally now.

I finished this one on Impossible. The kills dont count if you die and kill them again as I killed about 15 and didnt get the achievement.

And on Impossible with level 6 armor they take about 1/3 of your health.

What is the best way of goading them into a grabbing my face?
Have had a bit of trouble with it, just keep dodging slashes and projectiles.

No they are the wrong ones, There is a part where upon entering a room you see a guy in another room right in front of you and he is begging for you to open the door, then one of those lurkers spikes is hand to the glass then he pops him in the head that is the lurker they have three tentacles coming out of them. I hope that help or it might just confuse you more. Also you know its the right one after you defend yourself he punts it like a football lol

Here is a pic of a lurker

The achievement guide describes this achievement wrong. Still a great guide, but he needs to edit it. Last night, I managed to let 20 Lurkers chomp on my face..Killing yourself obviously doesn't keep count of this. Did anyone get it by using what the guide tells you? Im about to try one more time..Will be a waste though lol.

When I was going for the achievement (I have it), When they refused to jump on me, I would yet at the Television saying, "EAT ME! EAT ME!".

Good times..

Just go stand next to them. I think it helps if you are just standing and not in aim mode (at least it seemed to for me, they didnt want to jump me when i was aiming, they just attacked). On easy and normal they really dont do that much damage, on impossible, this achievement can be tricky.

Yeah its the most simple thing ever, all you do is walk up to them and just stand next to them, even if they try to scurry off just follow them and they should not ever even shoot at you if you're staying close enough.

Yep. They don't grab you in zero gravity. Annoying. I was hoping to boost this in level 11 with the zero gravity section. Won't work. Hope I can get it on level 12.

With a fully upgraded level 6 suit they do very little damage on easy/normal. I just let the first 10 lurkers I came across jump on me, then frantically tapped A the second the scene started.

Wouldn't recommend doing it on insane unless you have a good suit and plenty of supplies.

If you start mashing the button just before the lurker grapples you, the lurker will barely damage you. Of course, that may not be the case in the higher difficulties, but lurkers never manage to get close to me, so I'm not sure.
