Alan Wake

Alan Wake Achievements

Collateral Carnage

Defeat 20 Taken with indirect means.  

Indirect means to kill a Taken with either electricity, explosive canisters, water, or whatever. So long as you haven't taken the final shot, but YOU kill them, it works. The train yard is good for that. Get them close to the gas canisters and shoot them and not the Taken. Otherwise, there is an electric fence in the Power Station towards the end of the game. Use the torch to push them into it.

Having the Taken getting taken out (pun intended) by the large possesed objects counts too. My indirect kill counter went from 2 to 10 or so when I was doing the Heavy Metal (Bulldozer) achievement. Got the rest for the chievo on the way through the train yard.

The trick to this is to have Alan use the flashlight to remove the darkness from the Taken, and then try to situate yourself to where it puts them between you and the possessed objects.

For me, the achievement popped when I was dodging the bulldozer--it took out some Taken with its shovel and bing bang boom we're good.
