Alan Wake's American Nightmare

Alan Wake's American Nightmare Achievements

Cool It

Make sure Dr. Meadows can take another look at the skies.

Story related, can't be missed.

Act 2: In Progress

After meeting Dr. Meadows for the second time, you will then have to complete an objective which all that is required, is to pull a switch to secure the coolant tanks. After you pull the switch, the achievement will unlock.

This sounds like it could be optional (like save Dr. Meadows before he dies from taken attacks), but I really doubt that it is.

@sniper mantis - same thing happened to me and Mutalus, so I'm assuming it's OK and you get to revisit the Observatory later on.

@ tf2383 -You go back to the observatory. You just gotta keep playing and you will get the achievement.

This is story related. No glitch or missable. So don't worry and keep play and you will eventually get it, even you passed Observatory part on first playthrough.

You get it near the end of Act 2: In Progress, the second time through the observatory.
