    i hate this. i'm losing my mind

    ah yes, after complaining 2 rounds later i finally did it. the ony thing i can say to help future players is that the video above helped. and you need to know how to do 90 degree quick turns (right stick left or right + aim). because you get easily overwhelmed from all sides.

    Some tips that may help:
    =>R2 is a useless button in this challenge, program the command with a second action option (X) with turbo;
    =>Collect all the herbs and the flash grenade on the way up to the top (turbo helps a lot to collect the items when you pass near them and also to open the doors);
    =>Save your flash grenade for the end of the challenge, after you've released the Garrador and get the last time bonus (this could be decisive);
    =>Never risk your health with a ganado in a bad position or one that is surrounded by other ganados, whenever you are at risk or being attacked by a group, shoot without thinking in your feet or where to get it to preserve your HP. Remember that there are a lot of ganados on this map, way more than the 50 you need, but your HP and healing items are very limited.
    =>If you hit a ganado that is really close, just hold down the action button, the neckbreaker has priority over anything, so an instant neckbreaker can save you from other ganados that are very close (I abuse this technique a lot in the video , purposefully brings me closer to the ganados);
    =>Use the action button with turbo to execute the neckbreakers of a ganado that is farther away, because in this way, in addition to executing the movement in the first instant, you will also collect as quickly as possible all the items dropped in front of you, collecting the items is important not because they may be missing, but because they delay you when executing a neckbreaker, in this case, picking up the items is the same thing that clears your path;
    =>After getting the last time bonus you will have two more problems: the Garrador and a much larger amount of Metalhead ganados, and this is when your flash grenade will be your trump card, as it will silently blind all Metalheads , a job the TMP cannot do, this will give you a nice extra neck bonus without attracting the Garrador;

    Sheesh... I wish I could take this achievement in my hand so I could gently smash it with a sledgehammer!

    5 hours straight with no unlock. Hopefully the RNG will be more favorable tomorrow

    After another 8 hours, got it just as a garrador sliced my head off... not fun

    This achievement was constructed very unconventional, so in addition to break at least 50 necks, you should, I stand corrected, you must include, every neck breaker can only be executed with the very first bullet from the TMP, no grenades and no quick turns, critical shots would ruin the chain, not to mention damage, ''without damage'' must be imperative. Hahahahahahahaha. 25 to 30 was balanced, 50... Jesus. Revision this one, 100 necks, anything less than that was failure. Talk about grand achievements. So much for the glory of Rome.
    MauricioReis 17 Jan 2023 16:52
    I don't know if I understood your point, but in any case: you must break a total of 50 necks in the middle of a combo. Unless you miss the combo, everything else is irrelevant and doesn't make you lose your attempt: criticals don't help but also don't nullify your challenge, grenades can be used to not lose your combo in a risky situation, flash grenades can and should be used, kill by shooting or kicking also does not negate its challenge.

    Appreciate your response man, my point was, why would you want to create 'last second' achievement in terms that you have a very little time for obtaining the same one. Back in the days when I was a little younger and have a little more time (read to SS all stages on DMD mode in DMC3, which was by the way excruciating, you didn't have achievements back then), so I remember the guy posted on youtube HUNK Dance 100 neckbreakers, no grenades, no health items used (it was not ballet:)), and LO and behold some guy after all this years come up with this. My max was 89 breaknecks and 112 or something combo. This achievement was definitely not something for regular guys (who can afford 2-5 hours of trying). I do believe you can see my frustration now. 25 is ok, I mean give a effing break, 50 necks, its laughable.

    tienes que ir a por todos los bonus de tiempo y dejar el último cuándo queden pocos segundos de tiempo... de mientras seguir con el combo y romper cuellos.

    Este fue un verdadero dolor en el trasero, considero que 40 máximo estaría un poco más realizable, aunque aún así bastante difícil. Para quien sigue sufriendo mi recomendación es que solo rompan los barriles que tengan hierbas ya que con cada muerte les darán más que suficiente munición (y así no pierden segundos valiosos) y una vez que lleguen a la parte donde salen los 3 zealots (del cuarto del garrador) los aturdan con disparos a las piernas y sigan corriendo hasta tomar el último reloj y la hierba verde (dentro del cuarto del garrador), salgan de ahí y si lo hicieron bien tendrán aproximadamente 07:30 minutos en total para romper cuellos y el garrador nunca aparecera (ya que ustedes no necesitan entrar de nuevo a ese cuarto).

    This was a real pain in the butt, I think 40 max would be a bit more doable, but still quite difficult. For those who continue to suffer, my recommendation is that you only break the barrels that have herbs since with each death they will give you more than enough ammunition (and thus you do not lose valuable seconds) and once you reach the part where the 3 zealots come out (from the garrador's room) stun them with shots to the legs and keep running until you take the last clock and the green grass (inside the garrador's room), get out of there and if you did it right you will have approximately 07:30 minutes in total to break necks and the garrador will never spawn (since you don't need to re-enter that room).
