Alan Wake

Alan Wake Achievements

Heavy Metal

Survive the bulldozer attack.   

During episode 3 Alan will have an untimely fight with a dark presence controlled Bulldozer. Now this makes the miscellaneous AND missable achievements category because you can simply run past it, rather than fighting it. Whatever you do, stand up like the man that Alan is and take that beast down. Whether you destroy it with a few flares/flaregun or general hard-assery with the boosted torch is up to you. Just don't opt for the easy way out... his name is Alan for a reason...

In Chapter 3, you'll enter a warehouse that has a TV Show for you to watch. After you exit the building, you'll find yourself in a big open space. As soon as you step into the area, The Bulldozer and a group of Taken will come at you. Immediately focus your Flashlight on the Taken from as far away as you can. You'll have to keep dodging the Bulldozer while doing all of this. I ran to the middle, popped a Flare, and unloaded my Shotgun. After you kill the group of Taken, you just have to dodge and shine your light on the Bulldozer. Eventually, it'll disintegrate and the Achievement will be yours! Hopefully you have the Heavy Duty Flashlight by now! :)

I did the same technique as DAVID...the Taken can be quite bothersome. Playing on Normal...this shouldn't be too difficult...

Actually I found a VERY easy way past the bulldozer .. once you walk across the area and the dozer comes out .. pop a flare next to the gate and push the green button. Flashlight or flare any taken nearby for the moment .. dodge the dozer once maybe twice while the gate opens .. once on the other the taken dissappear and the dozer repeatly tries to ram through the gate but doesnt fit. You can flashlight it at your leasure! Once its gone you can go back through and kill any taken easily and pickup all the supplies in the area.

Thanks Slave106, I flashed the taken then slipped out the gate.

You made this a very easy achievement even set on hard :)

I'm a bit confused. I killed the bulldozer with a flare and leisurely left the compound. If it hadn't died then I'm sure it would have had plenty of time to chase me. And yet no achievement. How can you 'survive it' and not get awarded?
