Alice: Madness Returns Achievements

Cold Arms, Cold Heart

Defeat the Drowned Sailor without taking any damage  

In Chapter 2, after completing the picture puzzle you will come across a graveyard and meet the Drowned Sailor. He acts like the Lost Souls earlier in the chapter, but is a bit stronger.

While he is burrowing in the ground, place a bomb down for him to attack. While he is resting get in close and attack him. Repeat this process until he is dead and you will unlock the achievement.

I'd be intrested to know how easy these 'without taking damage'achievements actually are.

They are honestly not very hard at all.... if you get hit, just die, and start over again. Im playing on hard and its not that "hard". Some places are a little difficult, but nothing to cry over.

So when you face the "drowned sailor" and you get hit you don't lose your chance you face a couple when you get his shipmates back so I think you can try this 4 times.

It's easiest to do this with the first or second sailor. There are no other enemies to face.

drop a bomb on the ground and if he destroys it, immediately drop another. he'll leave you alone and use a variety of attacks on it, one of which will stun himself. quickly rush him, slash-slash-slash, repeat. not only did i not get hit, he never even targeted me. worked like a charm.

Yes the bomb method works best so he doesn't focus on you.

It's important to note that there are multiple drowned sailors - the one you meet first is just one of 4; you meet the other three in the room with the three doors (you'll know it when you see it). Of these, the first is the easiest to get the achievement.

I waited until he slithered up beside me, dodged his attacks and used the pepper grinder. Then, when he prepares to throw bombs, shoot the bomb and continue shooting him. Job done.

Yeah, I can also confirm using the Bomb trick works like a charm. Just throw one out and keep a safe distance. He'll attack it and it will blow up stunning him, then go in and attack him while he is stunned. Once he gets up throw another bomb and rinse and repeat.

I got this on chapter 4 in the third radula rooms. There are daiymo wasps and
drowned sailors. I ran around until time ran out and it gave it to me. Fun thing
is the wasps had hit me lol.

Got this one on the "boss" Drowned Sailor in chapter 2. Didn't realize it was an achievement until afterwards. Easy as pie I might add, considering I usually can't complete achievements like this. : )

You'll actually have about 6 chances to get this (yes 6, calm down) so no
worries if you mess up the first time.
I've found the very best way to get this achievement is to use clockwork bombs
and the pepper grinder. Drop the bomb and wait for him to go in for a melee
attack where he swoops in with 2 hits. If you hear a chime from his sword/hook
thing, then that's his attack. He'll blow up the bomb on his second attack with
leaves him vincible. When he's down, blast him with your pepper grinder. In the
mean time just dodge around and wait for him to go for the bomb.

Found that this was easyest on the very first drowned sailor you meet. Just drop a bomb, get around to the side or back of him and let him attack it. When the bomb explodes attack him with the pepper grinder, repeat intill hes dead!!!! This one is cake to get!!!

isn't this possible with the hysteria dress?
Tried it a few times but no achievement

You don't even need bombs. When he's underground, and is about to attack, everything slows down like crazy, so you can just dodge twice, then hit him with the hammer.

Using the DLC Hattress dress didn't work, so don't try it, heh. I'll try using the bombs and pepper grinder when I get to chapter 4's third radula room.

Seems bugged, been thrashing the first Sailor for about an hour now and nothing.

I actually got this achievement in chapter 4 in one of the Radula Rooms. I thought I had it already but I guess not.

yeah i didn't even know this was an achievement and was doing it on nightmare too easy IMO

I can confirm that the radula room option is probably the best way to get this achievement. Just run around until the time is up and you have yourself an easy 30g.

if you have the dlc dresses this is insanely easy, this was my last achievement and I went back dreading to do it, went into hysteria with the fleshmaiden dress, threw down a bomb and when he stunned himself I killed him in one go
