Decompress 20 Necromorphs without getting sucked out yourself  

Decompression windows appear throughout the game. They typically have white and yellow writing on the glass advising of future expansion and to take warning. Unfortunately there aren't enough decompression windows in the game to get this on your first playthrough, so you will have to finish it on a New Game +. The location of all the decompression windows are as follows:

  • Chapter 1: Upon entering the 'Critical Needs Room' a gas tank explodes causing the window to break. This is the tutorial for decompression windows. Shoot the red triangle at the top of the window to close the emergency gate. You will get 1/20 here.
  • Chapter 3: After taking the elevator from the 'Concourse' where the Lightspeed Boy Statue is up to the Unitology Lobby, you will see this window at the end of the hallway. You will be attacked by four necromorphs (Exploder, Slasher and 2 Pack). You can use the Javelin Gun here to get "Skewered In Space" and raise your count to 5/20 or you can lure them away from the window and kill them. Run up to the glass and you will be attacked by 5 Pack kids. String them along until you can see all five and head back to the elevator before breaking the glass. Using this method will net you an extra body for 6/20.
  • Chapter 4: In the Unitologist Indoctrination room, after fixing the fuses to gain access to the room on the other side, you get will get attacked by three Necromorphs upon exiting the fuse room. Break the glass for a total of 9/20.
  • Chapter 7: Upon entering this large room, you will be attacked by a Legless Slasher. You will also see the 'Power Grid Room' at the opposite end. Remove the explosive canisters from near the window and head to the middle of the room and yellow detonator beams will activate on both sides of you. If you wait until all the Crawlers enter the room, you can get your count up to 15. If you don't move the barrels you will most likely only get credit for two. Your new count should be anywhere from 11-15/20.
  • Chapter 9: After exiting the 'Pressurization Control 2' room, you will encounter a Divider. Kill it and take the elevator upstairs. Upon exiting the elevator, run quickly to the power node box to the right. Two necromorphs will drop into the room. Shoot out the window and quickly hit the red triangle because there is not much space to work with in this room. Your count should be anywhere from 13-17/20.
