This is easy one of the most frustrating achivments ive done, the maps in the guide don’t list all the pickups for thermoses or pages.

I really really paid attention on my first playthrough and found over 85 thermoses, without any guide. Then i checked the first 2 levels again b/c i had more practice... after #94 i just had to use guides.
I am going to find the last 6 soon though
i already know where they are, i believe. At least i hope. Remedy put way too much collectable stuff in that game for my taste. I am going to play it on nightmare for a second time i think, to collect the nightmare pages. but i won't do that too soon. It's just too much Alan Wake for me right now.

i finished on my first play through. 99/100 thermos. at the very end after defeating the tornado you will come across words that can be destroyed with the flashlight. the one that says thermos will leave you a thermos. if this is the case for you then youll have the nice hypercaffeinated achievement.

If you want has video guides. I'm just mopping up the las few chests and thermos, and they show even all 12 can stacks... now I have to go through the last two chapters with their guide.

Collecting thermoses should make you run faster. Alan Wake's adrenal gland is obviously glitchy since, even with haunted axe murderers chasing him, he can't run more than 10 feet before panting.

i know for a fact i collected all 100, but one of them glitched - either the one on the bleachers or the one on the stage. tried to collect the one i needed by replaying the episode and neither one of them were there to be picked up.

i have 99/100 is there a certain number that's hardest to find or something?

I had 99 after my second playthrough as well. I was following a guide which added up to 100 so I had no idea. then I watched the videos on youtube and found it, for me it was the one at the end of the ghost town, where you get the key from the shed. it was right behind that shed.

99/100 for me too after my 3rd playthrough.

This is pissing me off i followed two different guides + the
written one on

Really... 99/100 and im sure i checked everything from the videos and guide

I used the guide on x360a but have 1 thermos left as well, though if the guide can be trusted I missed it in the 2nd or 3rd chapter. I'll go through them again while doing nightmare...

99/100 on my third playthrough too. Followed the guide here and a video guide on YouTube. Can't figure out which I've missed, but it's starting to bug me.

this REALLY PISSED me off when i was going for it a while ago, but when i found it it was in the kitchen in the town hall near where you get the gun and keys

I had 99/100 for quite a while. Turned out it was on the first episode where you first arrive to diver's island and can run back uphill to the car.

i had a problem with finding the last two thermos... i gave up looking for a month and then i figured i just do it bcuz it was the last achievement and i finally found them!!!! 1500/1500 VICTORY!!!

I have a question, I collected 85 out of 100 on my first playthrough now when I play my second run through of the game do I have to recollect every single one in order to get the achievement or can I just get the ones i missed?

Comment #22 by metalbowser
Sunday, August 21, 2011 @ 01:28:28 PM

no they'll stay there just like the pages will as well

Thank goodness the collectable achievements carry across playthroughs! I'm using a really good guide for the game that gets every collectable spot on pretty much. Very helpful that it mentions opportunities to get all the combat related achievements too. Unfortunately I didn't start with the guide at the beginning so I think there's a few missed thermoses and a couple of other things but I should easily have them all mopped up in my second playthrough :)

Comment #25 by Marc Pilkington

Yay found the last thermos! I knew I missed most on episode 1 but got a bit worried when I had only 1 left! Luckily it was towards the end of episode 2 when you start driving the truck. Very happy! Now I can enjoy my second (hard) playthrough without having to think for a second about collectibles ^__^ This'll be fun! Then I can get started on my third (nightmare) playthrough and get those 15(?) nightmare pages which shouldn't be too hard.

P.S. Shame on me for only rating this game 89%...I now feel it deserves way more than that!

After two and a half playthroughs, I missed three. Probably not going back. But if I did, I would likely make a brand new save to make them all re-appear and make sure I pick up every single one.

I've gotta go through the whole game to get all of these thermoses... oh boy.

I need only one more ive done 4 playthroughs and still cant find it. Any ideas?

Comment #29 by KingsOfArcadia
Thursday, March 29, 2012 @ 12:48:16 PM

@ #26 - that's about where I am with this as well; I find it aggravating when I am searching for something & can't find it with the guide - I keep wondering if I already have it, or if it's just that I'm not looking in the exact right spot. I'm going to do what you suggested, and start a new save (likely on Nightmare so I can mop up the manuscript pages as well).

Comment #30 by Locoman99
Monday, May 07, 2012 @ 10:54:15 AM

I'll probably play the game on a new save on normal to make sure i get them all. For those missing one... did you get the one in episode 6? when you flash your light on the words? one of the words is thermos and you need to get it too!

Followed the guide exactly but realised that sometimes even if u press b it doesn't always register so now I have to go through chpt 6 again as I'm pretty sure that's where I missed one eughh!

I played the game through, collect a good few, followed a guide, got all but one, took AGES to find that last one, go Rooster Teeth for the awesome guides though.

I wouldnt have minded this achievement if they added more trackers instead of making you comb the goddamn game for 1 thermos >=[.

I am missing about 3, so I am going to replay the game using a video guide instead of a text guide. That should probably help..

I just gave up trying to get this achievement, After two full playthroughs got stuck at 99/100 twice... don't want to get this glitch a second time.
