Extreme Conditions Achievement
Finished the Game on Hard Difficulty
Start your first playthrough on Hard difficulty. Not only is it available right away, but the game is pretty easy and doesn’t show too much concern or issues. Sometimes Akrid will gang up and kill you, but you’ll get a feel for the game and be flying through it in no time. Plus the checkpoints/saves are pretty frequent so the game is forgiving, which helps on bosses.
