Alan Wake

Alan Wake Achievements

License Revoked

Special 1: Complete the episode without using a single vehicle.   

This achievement is quite simple. There will be a point where you enter a large area of the Sawmill, and you’ll see the word “Wheels” multiple times. Shining your light on these words will unlock Jeeps. Simply do not shine your light on these words, and continue on toward your objective. Dodge the Taken, and the Monster Trucks, and open the warehouse door. Continue onwards into the warehouse, and kill all of the Taken. Go up the stairs and out the door. Drop down over the car and the achievement will unlock.

Okay, I don't have this DLC, but if I get this, is this hard to do? I mean, if it's an achievement, generally it's something most people would call a foolish way to go about things >_> Like don't shoot during a firefight... and win (ACHIEVEMENT!)

nah mate its a pretty easy achievement, basically it just means the game takes a bit longer cos at the part where you have the vehicle against 2 possessed monster trucks and a bunch of flying objects youll just die more. but use flashbangs on the monster trucks and you should be fine

Just go behind the big cable reel, use flares if you must and torch the hell out
of those cars. There will be one or two takens

Annoyed me three times but then I got it. I shot a flare gun at the first truck, it hit me, I shot a second flare at it, then ran. I went left of the big log pile and torched the axle/gear thing and then torched the cable spool. No takens even bothered me. Went to the building, shot the takens in there with the shotty and climbed the stairs, jumped down and thats it.

I got this one without flares or the flaregun. The important thing here is to remember is to take it one small area at a time.

1: When you start, stay in a small area and keep the monster truck going around that area. Try to predict its moves. It stays on a pretty set pattern of moving back and forth and bumping into things. Don't rush this as you need enough battery power to be ready for the next step.

2: When you take out a truck it will spawn about 3-4 taken around you. These normally consist of the fast guys and the ranged-attack guys. Take these guys out and then move to the next area and repeat from #1 again til the objective switch box.

3: The box area spawns 2 taken (which one sometimes kills itself in the light) and starts the possessed items to attack. Use cover to your

(continued from last post)

advantage and let the objects hit other objects in their path to you. Take these objects out one at a time and keep moving to the warehouse.

4: inside this warehouse are a lot of taken and gas cylinders. Before shooting one take a few moments (and batteries) to weaken the taken inside (doing this will usually leave no one alive when the cylinders blow). After weakening (or until a taken gets too close) shoot a cylinder in the center to start a reaction. If done right there will be no survivors or one heavy taken left to contend with.

hope this all helps

Lol i remember the way i got this achivement was that i was running away from the cars and got rammed by one through the door where you are meant to go. Got the achievment but then discovered that my game was glitched and had to restart the DLC and it worked fine.

I also got rammed by one of the possessed trucks and got stuck stuck between the wall and post. Had to restart.

There's only the one area where vehicles are available. Just try to keep close to corners so that the trucks can't get you. No need to waste flares. I died a couple times, but that's just because I was being stupid and running around in the open.
