Alice: Madness Returns

Alice: Madness Returns Achievements

Calm In the Face of Death

While on your last Rose, kill 5 Enemies without activating Hysteria

This achievement will be harder to unlock on the higher difficulties since enemies deal more damage. Each rose of health you have has four quarters. When you are on your last rose the screen will be flashing red. While in this state, kill 5 enemies without restoring health past your last rose to unlock this achievement. The best place to get 5 kills is in chapter 1 where you are first introduced to the bolterflies.

This is very easy to do during Chapter 2 while facing the last of the Drowned Sailors in the crypts. Take damage until you are on your last rose and then kill the
Slithering Ruin that spawn infinitely. Peace of cake. :)

actually, it can be done at any point in the game, even the first level. let the botterflies take you down to one rose and just kill 5 of them and BAM! achievement :)

I got this as soon as Hysteria became available in Chapter 1... Just run around in circles for a moment lobbing Clockwork Bombs at the enemies until the crowd thins out, then finish the rest off with your knife. Easy as pie.

You don't even need to have Hysteria available. Like #5 said, when you get the pepper grinder and go outside and meet the bolterflies for the first time, let them latch onto you until you're down to one rose (I let them get me to half a rose before hitting dodge to get them off me for good measure) then just kill five of them with the pepper grinder. It's a real easy achievement.

After you go through the first door, and get the tutorial about hysteria, you face off against a load of Insidious Ruin's.

The difficulty is in not picking up a dropped Rose after killing one of them, or when you dodge out of the way.

Here's a trick, which nobody else has mentioned:
Chuck a bomb down - the Insidious Ruin's will go running up to investigate.
Stand well back and shoot them with the Pepper Grinder. Once the bomb automatically explodes throw another into the fray and start Pepper Grinding them, continue
until the achievement pops up. Then obviously kill the blighters any way you want!

If you accidentally hit hysteria and are trying for the one use achievement, press Start and "Restart".

@ #6 I got the achievement right there too, but i just kept running around with my Pepper Grinder and took them out that way while trying not to pick up the roses.

EASY - In the second radula room let the madcaps beat you to one rose then just dodge them till the time runs out :)

I didn't realize that the outfit equipped would actually affect it. I wore the Late But Lucky dress the whole time and my health came back way too fast. I tried wearing the Cheshire dress in chapter 2 with the Bolterflies, right where everyone has said, and i finally got the achievement.
So be careful what you wear!
