Don of Darkness

Finish the game on Don difficulty

Like all shooter games, completing the campaign on the hardest difficulty isn't actually very hard at all, it only requires you to take your time and to think of the best strategy. The awesomeness of this game is that it allows you to play the way you like; there are many different ways to kill your enemies.

As I mentioned in the Roadmap, you should keep this achievement for your New Game+. You'll be able to start with all your talents and upgrades which will help you tremendously to blast through the game again. 

Here's a list of useful tips that you should keep in mind if you don't want to die over and over again:

  • Always eat the enemie's heart to keep your health gauge full.
  • Look for glowing objects, such as javelins and explosives that you could throw at your enemies to save ammo.
  • If you see a car door, grab it as a shield (), it'll save your life more than once. You can also throw them from a very long distance for an instant kill.
  • Dual weapons aren't accurate at all, so don't bother using them if the enemies are too far away.
  • Always watch for the lights. Destroy as many of them as possible before moving into a fight.
  • "Gun Channelling" will help you TREMENDOUSLY! I would suggest buying every upgrade as soon as possible.
  • The "Demonic Executions" Talent gives you a strong shield when you execute an enemy, it's a good idea to buy this as well.

Even if you can't New Game + on Don, it will still be pretty easy. The demo wasn't too hard at all really. I just sniped people with the pistol and used the car door as a shield. :D

this achievement is actually pretty easy to get. just do the 1st play-through on whatever difficulty you want, then do newgame+ on don. i finished the 2 play-throughs in about 8 hours. newgame+ on don was actually easier than my 1st play-through actually.

Thanks #11. Very helpful. Maxed out Darkness powers is beastly!

Agreed. Did my first playthrough on the difficulty before Don, expecting it to have multiple difficulty achivements that stack (otherwise would have Donned it straight away but wanted to play it safe and not struggle on my first playthrough) but I did New Game + on Don and I'm flying through. Having all your upgrades and knowledge of the game really helps. Agreed with #13 though, it was way too short a game. Loved it but I miss the Creeping Dark and the open world-ish features of the first game. Hell of a difference between hardest difficulty on the first game and this game though lol.

Oh and #3, you kicked a demos ass? Wooo, go you. Playing a small part of the game on the hardest difficulty surely puts you on par with people playing the whole game, right up to seeing the armored gun stealing bastards and their flash light headed mates in the droves.

awesome game you dont really experience all the details and different powers till you play don. love it

Comment #18 by ThFlsh12
Monday, February 13, 2012 @ 07:28:09 PM you really think the demo is what's going to be in the game the whole way. You think they give us more power and FINALLY the Darkness Armor and they weren't going to give us anti-Darkness enemies? I really hope you're a little kid with shitty parents that that don't know you're embarrassing them.

Black hole and darkness armor from the start makes this a breeze.

No. Completely finish it from A to B, doesn't have to be in New Game+
New Game+ comes in real handy if you have finished all chapters beforehand with most of the upgrades to play it on Don. I finished the game on Don in less than 3 and a half hours or so. Even the boss fights are really easy if you just have enough hearts to feast on :)

I agree with #27, I felt it was harder to play the first time. New game plus helped a lot.

Very easy if you have all talents bought before you start. Shields, gun channeling and swarm made Don difficulty a breeze.

Completed it in a few hours today and then started on Don. Gotta say it was easy, even in the restaurant scene. Should be able to 1000g this tomorrow.
