Serious Sam 3: BFE

Serious Sam 3: BFE Achievements

Are You Serious!?

Complete the game in single player on unmodified serious difficulty.

Completing the game on serious will probably prove to be the toughest achievement in the game. If not for this, the overview difficulty would be about a 1/10. You also have to do it on unmodified serious difficulty, which sadly means no infinite ammo. Luckily completing this mode isn’t reliant on ammo count, but rather clever use of the ammo you have and saves.

Here are some tips to get you through serious a little bit easier: 

  • Find secrets. Most of the time secrets will help you and provide new weapons early, health and armor items, and alternate routes. Refer to "Look, it’s a secret" for secret locations.
  • Abuse saving. Since you can save at any time, make good use of it. Clear an area with minimal damage? Save! Take too much damage? Load!
  • Use level skips. Some levels have unintended ways to 'break' the map and skip large chunks of levels. This is only really useful for serious or speed-runs. Refer to "Serious Sam" to visit each level page of the wiki to find out which levels can be skipped and how.
  • Plan ahead. If you know a boss fight is coming or a swarm of smaller enemies is about to spawn, use the appropriate weapons and conserve ammo depending on the fights at hand.
  • Spam explosives. The C4/rockets in this game are infinite, so to speak. If you locate an explosives crate with C4 or rockets inside, use them! Spam that junk! Then when you’ve cleared an area, go back and refill your supply.
  • Use retreat as an option. Many times it may be more worth while to go and funnel enemies into bottlenecks or just retreat to gather supplies/recover from battles. Fighting enemies from a distance also works great in many situations.

It's not gonna be a problem as I already did the first 2 this way. I didnt know you could change any of the settings before it was to late. I do hope that this can not be done in co op. It'll be to cheap if so. Having said that co op serious should have it's own achievement.

Yea it shouldn't be too bad if you can still save anywhere. Even with infinite ammo in the first one I knew it wasn't or wouldn't help THAT much so that it was a necessity so to speak.

@3 - It has been out for PC for almost a year but we will be getting our version sometime in October I would assume. Croteam had said on their site that October is looking good for release since it had just passed MS certification.

But before they said it's around September. I'm confused. I know the PC version has been released before but I was always confused about Xbox 360 version
