Tis but a flesh wound!10
Sever 100 limbs.

Aim for the shoulders in a downward strike for arms or a horizontal strike just above the knees for legs.

Dismembering existed long before Dead Space came around. =/

Apart from the epic fail from IGun BunnyI, there's a little misquote here.
First he says "tis but a scratch", then it comes "just a flesh wound".
So the exact achievement quote ain't in the movie. Maybe copyright stuff?
But that's the ultra awesome inspiration, no doubt.

yes, this is a Monty Python reference, from the black knight, as long as the zombies don't try to chew on my ankles when I am done it should be alright

What does sever means ? Is that like cutting of limbs ?

Comment #13 by Nevander

@12 Yes, sever means to dismember a limb. I would imagine this acheivement should come rather quick, that is if you can dismember multiple limbs off the same dead zombie.

This will be easy, as I got the "Sever 2,500 Limbs" achievement in Dead Space 2 quite easily...

Little info:

It only counts when the zombie is "alive" and you cut of a rm or something else.
If he is "dead" and you cut off all limbs DOES NOT COUNT!

Comment #31 by NewSlang7

This is very easy to do with a larger blade like a sickle, cleaver, or machete. If you fully upgrade them you can slice off heads and arms in one go. Very fun haha.

I found dismembering zombies not too difficult with the right weapons, a cleaver or machete is the best way to go IMO

There should also be a reference achievement to Shaun of the Dead called, "Ahh, he's got an arm off" cut off 100 zombie arms lol

Comment #37 by Valkynaz

Wow, so many faggots arguing over the reference instead of the achievement itself.

Anyway, just to specify: severing only counts if the target is still alive (err, unalive?) before death. You can sever up to two arms before the zombie dies, as well as the head/one leg, so aiming for the arms with a sharp weapon will speed up the progress twofold instead of decapitation. Machete or a cleaver would be god tier for this.

Got this today - very enjoyable achievement. I used a Machete for the most part and just looked out for when the cross-hair turned red while hover over the zombie's arms and legs.

For whatever reason, I've found that most types of scythes seem to have a higher chance of severing limbs.

I still find it funny that you cannot sever there legs.
