|Make it to Cauldron Lake without firing a single shot in ''On the Road to Cauldron Lake.''|
Load up the first chapter in episode 6 to tackle this badboy. You essentially have to flare and flashbang it all the way... NO flaregun, but do use the car and its headlights where possible. Death is pretty much a given as well, so don't worry about that.

Incorrect description, it should read, "Make it to Cauldron Lake without firing a single shot in "On the Road to Cauldron Lake.""

easy just stock up on flares and round up the taken into one spot when you use a flare to get by the taken

If you accidentally shoot, you can revert to the last checkpoint and still get it.

I accidently pulled the trigger in a safe haven, right after it saved. So my shot counted, you don't want to hold your finger on the right trigger!!

I tried to do this last night, and never realised you could use the car (as isn't the accelerator the trigger button?), gave up after an hour or so trying to get to a checkpoint (and dying repeatedly).

will I get the achievement if turn of the xbox and load from the last check point later? or do I have to do it in one sitting?
|Comment #13 by Papa Smurf FTW|
Wednesday, April 13, 2011 @ 02:29:34 PM
(HIM3KoRn) No, you can turn off your xbox and whatnot and still get the achievement by doing it later. Its the save that matters so as long as your save is clean as in (you have not fired a bullet) turning the xbox on and off shouldnt affect it whatsoever.

Ugh wtf I'm playing it on Hard and am at the very end of the run where a boat, and a car and shit piles up by the exit. All I have are two friggin flares, which don't keep the enemies off of me long enough to burn through the stuff. So damn lame that I made it this far and now am going to have to shoot and ruin the achievement just to pass the damn part.

This is actually easier than I thought it would be. Just you flares to get away from enemies and use flashbangs when you have a lot of taken coming at you.

Can I use the flaregun??
|Comment #17 by SnakeIntheboX|
Sunday, June 26, 2011 @ 09:07:41 AM
Didn't fire a single god damn shot and nothing popped!!!!! The only time I even pressed the right trigger was by accident while I was using the search light (whiciich does nothing!).
This game is loaded with tedious cheevo's, hope I can speed run reply on easy for this one.
Also my game shows 1250/1250 gs and I have been online to see if there was an update might be glitched or does the game not update till you buy the new dlc?
|Comment #18 by SnakeIntheboX|
Sunday, June 26, 2011 @ 11:55:56 AM
You need to walk to the point where you can literally go no further in the level right in front of the tornado before the cheevo will pop, I assumed that the cheevo popped BEFORE the boss fight because the description was so VAGUE.
Youtube it if your not sure.
Pi$$ed off that this was not mentioned!!!!!

It will give you the achievement just before fighting the tornado, since you have to shoot flares at it. As long as you die or restart at a checkpoint after shooting, you'll still get it. I accidentally fired (the pistol) 3 times myself, just make sure you don't save and it won't count. Didn't try the flaregun, but that's shooting something.
If you're stuck for the last part where there's a bunch of junk in front of you, you can keep going behind that fence and they'll retreat. Often you can shine the light onto the stuff from back there. I only had two flares too. You can burn the items in the way with the flashlight. Just don't touch the junk because it damages you. It will "kill" the Taken too if they touch it, but they respawn if you're hanging out. It is more a pai

Easy besides having to screw with a couple of those big dudes. But if you're trying this achievement, don't expect to do any exploring. Gonna be running the entire time. Stay in car as often as possible.

This achievement is long, annoying, and tedious, but shouldn't be incredibly difficult. Make sure, when you turn on the generator to power the elevator, you keep all the flashbangs you pick up, and hopefully you have a flare to use while the elevator is coming down to you. Make sure you walk up all the way to the tornado, then the achievement will pop up. Gave me a headache...

Not so bad, came back to it on normal after doing my nightmare run. Basically keep moving, save everything you can for the moments when you have to do something physical like starting a genny or pushing the train carts. If you pick up the bonus chests along the way you should be fine on ammo at the end for the blockade.

Confirmed. If a shot is fired just reload checkpoint. Achievement pops when you approach the flare gun ammo in front of the tornado.

This genuinely isn't hard..i was playing through on nightmare to get all collectible pages..and i tried this. Yes you may die a few times but the only section i had trouble with was in the little village where you have a spotlight..other than that just be efficient with flares and flash bangs.

Go all the way up to the tornado, you get it farther away while your objective: destroy the tornado is already active for like 10 seconds
|Comment #37 by Kozzy17|

DESCRIPTION IS DECEIVING
Whatever you do, DO NOT SHOOT AT ALL....***Till you are in FRONT of the TORNADO at the cliff***
As mentioned above you can restart checkpoint if you mistakenly made a shot.
As you exit the tunnel with the tornado up ahead swirling all kinds of objects, boats and cars,
run towards it till the cheevo pops then start shooting the tornado with your flare gun.
I made this mistake as soon as I exit the tunnel and the objective was to *destroy the tornado*. I started shooting the tornado and nothing happened till i realized I had to run further up.
Had to do it all over again cuz i was at a new checkpoint where i made my shots w/flare already=/

did this on normal while getting all the collectibles, really not to hard, want to say the town is only real part of challenge. Still got through the chapter with more than 10 flares and 10 flash bangs left over. make sure you avoid what enemies you can, some of them you don't even need to waste a flare just turn around and blind them with the flash light. For turning on the gate into the junk yard what i did was i ran in got the coffee thermos ran out to the light since two taken showed up. Then ran back up all the way to the top got the flash bangs hit the button and ran out the door at the top. For the town fight make sure you get rid of the shield on the chainsaw guys and you can just throw a flash bang to kill them both.
|Comment #39 by Havok1496|
Tuesday, May 28, 2013 @ 01:13:00 AM
Otherwise just always wait for the taken to gang up on you when you want to use a flash bang, and keep running. Also, use the car when you can to kill the taken since you get new ones often but only if you have to. You can avoid most of the fights at the beginning when you have a car just keep driving. Haven't tried it on hard so i can't say how that goes but if your having trouble just do it on normal. As for the achievement keep running until you get very close to the tornado. You will see a pick up truck fly past you and reach a pier looking thing that you jump from. You will get the achievement then. The achievement should pop before the platforms that have the junk flying past it and you have to jump to them.

I just did this on Hard (on my first playthrough of the game) while getting all the collectibles as well. I didn't fint it very hard at all.
Run from as many Taken as you can, turning and stunning them with your flashlight so they don't get too close. Use the flashlight on the large Taken to get rid of their shields before you blast them with a flashbang. Walk with a flare through the forest area (I had like 20 flares when I got there).

Mine dropped as soon as I stood on the first of the three platforms in front of the tornado, thought it'll never pop. Now just have to find the last thermos hmmm.

Be careful not to shoot the dumb cans like I almost did. I realize that I have to play the episodes again in nightmare so I left that one can pyramid there for now cuz I'm not wasting one shot just to get jammed by no achievement
