Set in the era of grind-house and the 70s, you will play through an action packed world of blood, violence and extreme slow-mo. You take control of Rubi Malone who is a hired assassin who has the tables turned on her.
Before you start playing you will need to make an important decision relating to the games difficulty. There are 5 difficulty's, two which unlock after completing the game on hard and one for completing the game in general. The hard mode isn't as difficult as it sounds, but you will need to complete this mode to unlock "Ultra Hard" mode.
Playthrough 1: (Hard)
There isn't much difference between the to difficulties so you shouldn't have any issues with starting on hard. Make sure you upgrade Rubi's abilities, as it will make the game easier in the long run. I suggest you wait to do the 50,000 point achievement until you have run through the game at least once so you know what's coming.
Playthrough 2: Ultra Hard
This is where the game gets a little harder and may test your skills. Much like playthrough 1, just use your upgrades and take your time. Some levels are going to be harder than others. As long as you upgrade the right abilities to start with you shouldn't have any issues.
I would upgrade the following stats early on:
- Rubi's Health
- Pistol Damage
- Acrobatic Skills (Sword Slashing, Zipline Shooting etc)
Playthrough 3: Golden Bullets
Some people may struggle with this depending on how good you are at the game. You will be playing through the game with "Golden Bullets" which will kill your enemies in one shot. You will also take more damage, this is the game mode wher eyou will want to earn the 50,000 achievement. As you enter an area battle areas, make sure you don't close the gates early.The enemies will stop spawning after a certain period of time. Once you're enemies stop spawning you can close the gates.
Points Count Mode: Playthrough 4
This is basically another run through of the game but earning points for each chapter. The points vary and some of them are quite hard to complete. Run through each chapter, make sure you always aim for headshots and keep your multiplier up. If you can keep a chain of kills between each person you will have no issue earning the scores required.
Collectibles: Monkey Toys & Boneyard Scorpions
There are 45 toy monkeys to collect and 25 scorpions. While playing through the game you will find monkeys hidden around each level. Once you get to the Boneyard you will be able to hunt for the 25 scorpions. If you miss out on collecting the scorpions you can use the challenges modes to access the Bonyard a find any you missed.
Use the following guides to find all the collectibles:
Monkey Collectible Guide
Scorpion Collectible Guide
The weapon kills are straightforward enough, you will also be able to carry over your kills between playthroughs.You can play through "Points Count Mode" to earn your extra kills as well as rage mode
If you die at a checkpoint and keep replaying the same area all the previous kills won't count. You need to make your way through each area to the next checkpoint for all of your stats to saved.
Challenge Modes: Boneyard/Points Count Mode
The various challenges in the Boneyard can be quite tricky. Running each course seveal times before you try to complete the challenge will help. Make sure you hit every single target as they will reduce your time by 2 seconds for each hit.
This game is fairly straightforward but will need various playthroughs to earn the full 1000. Parts of the game can be a real struggle, but with a little patience you will be rewarded.
