Beat a Mourner without beating its supporting sidekicks
You should attempt this on Episode 7 where you will fight 2 Mourners at the same time.
This will likely take you a few tries. You can reload and try again if you mess up. It seems best to equip a 5-Hit combo as follows: Power, Chain, Chain, Power. Use weaker regen ones on other combos. Attack the Mourner closest to you when the battle starts using the 5 hit combo you created. Attack lightly on the other enemies and dodge the incoming Mourners. They attack one at a time in order, it is possible to track the one you hurt to start. You will notice an attack that rarely happens where the Mourner will be visible afterwards. You can try to get a chain in. Once you have a fury bar, use Sensen DOS to attack the Mourner you have been attacking if you have been able to follow it. You can very well get lucky and prompt to kill it within that first fury, or will have to keep attempting.
!!SPOILER!! don't try it on ep.6 boss johnny (like its mentioned in the loading screen hints)... in ep.7 you have to defeat two mourner shortly after you suck of the guardcaptain. just use dos than combo one of them away with your hardest kicks before the sidekicks spawn. you'll get the b-button prompt pretty soon to qt and finish the mourner.
Location: Episode 7 During episode 7 you will have to fight two mourners at the same time. This cannot be missed. They summon smaller enemies who fight for them (the so called sidekicks). You may not kill any of the small enemies. Attacking them is necessary though. You need to power up and use your Sensen DOS to make the Mourners vulnerable to your attacks. Before the fight you should put together a short combo with only power & chain Pressen. Use this one against the Mourners to deal a lot of damage quickly. You should also create a combo with cooldown Pressen. Use it against the sidekicks to cool down your Sensen DOS. Keep doing this and only attack one of the Mourners. You can restart the checkpoint in case one of the sidekicks dies.
@5 Thanks for the tip. Using that 5-hit combo you suggested helped me get it. I attacked the minions until I had a bar of focus, then hit the DOS attack and did that combo twice and that was enough to trigger the QTE and allow me to finish him off.
An easier way is just to have your 8 hit combo as cooldown, i had the blue chain pressens in there aswell. Dig at the minions until you have 2 focus points, then use sensen DOS and straight away use sensen fury on the mourner. Easy!
You can try it on ep.6 boss Johnny G. This is the easier way to get it, but the annoying thing is to have to load the checkpoint.
1._ Load the last checkpoint until you see that there is no "white leapers" in the stage (because the white leapers are immune to DOS S-pressen attack and they can hit you or die by your fury attack). 2._ Hit the leapers until you reach 2 focus points. 3._ Then use your DOS S-pressen and the Fury S-pressen tapping Y or / fast as you can (that should be enough to beat him). 4._ Later of the quick time events the achievement is yours.
You should do exactly as the guide says: attack the closest Mourner with the 5-hit combo (power-chain-chain-power)RIGHT AWAY. That combo killed the Mourner before the fight even begun. It seems the Mourner on the right is weaker, while the other one is stronger and needs to be put down with a quick time event.
Fuzzy Logic Achievement trick! If you haven't already gotten Fuzzy Logic (40G), after you finish off both Mourners without taking out any sidekicks, they'll all stand in a huge group holding their heads helplessly. If you have 2 focus points, use Sensen DOS in the middle of them and directly after, plant a Logic Bomb on the guy right in the middle. It'll blow em all to hell and boom, cheevo. And if you don't have enough focus points, quickly use your regen combos to take out the ones off to the side (they'll stand there helpless). Easiest spot in the game for Fuzzy Logic.
