    My advice; Forget the holy water, cross is your best friend for this. Get the cross, go up and down the stairs and farm some hearts ( I stopped grinding when I hit around 50-60.) then start the fight! The key with Dracula is to use the cross on his fireball attack to try and get a double shot to drop (you can also whip but the cross is much easier to take out the fire). Once you get the double shot, focus on hitting his head and use the other shot to defend against the fire (or jump over it). Once you get him to phase two, spam the hell out of it and try to stunlock him as much as possible. I grinded until I had triple shot from his second forms fireballs. He is laughably easy when you have 3 crosses on screen. Good luck!

    @Gollawiz You know that killing candles with subweapons will spawn double and triple shots right?
    Gollawiz 11 Oct 2023 22:04
    Not all the time, but if you'd like to spend more time grinding on the candles before his fight then go for it, I just found it to be much faster to get them from his fireballs

    If you jump forward and throw the cross to break 3 candles in a row, it drops the double/triple shot very frequently.

    Hello. There is a problem with this achievement where sometimes when the double shot icon spawns, the challenge icon goes away, as if the game thinks your are striking Dracula with the whip, ruining the challenge. It happens quite often with the cross weapon in Dracula's room. I know I'm not accidentally hitting him with the whip because it occurs many times when I am all the way across the screen, having destroyed Drac's fireballs with the cross. It's obviously still possible judging by how many people have done it, but it's a major problem that ruins a lot of attempts at this.
    Thanks......Brian

    As an addendum to my last comment: The cheevo works fine if you grind for the multi-shot powers outside of Dracula's room. If you don't, then most of the time, the challenge icon will vanish when one of the power-ups drops. I recommend ChocoMilk's method to get fully powered up before you begin the fight.

    Thanks Brian, I'll look into this.

    Brian, I tried farmed like 20 double shots and triple shots off Dracula's fireballs and could not reproduce what you are describing. I'm really out of ideas as to what could have caused this issue for you.
    BrianDavis13 22 Nov 2023 17:07
    suspect 15, I sent you a direct message. I was able to get the cheev by powering up with the candles before Dracula's chanmber, so no big deal. Probably just something weird on my end! :D

    (Didnt get this because im dumb and overwhipped on the 2nd phase because of having more than 3 crosses on the screen, but still gonna give my tips), from a video I saw, you get the x2 and x3 by killing a specific number of enemies with a subweapon and then it will appear in the next non-set reward candle, but it seems candles themselves count as enemies for this so thats why just using the cross on the candles will eventually drop them, it isnt rng. For the fight itself, just think you have the whip instead of the cross, jump over the flames and throw as many crosses as you can, even if they dont hit dracula inmediately, they will hit him on the way back, dont try to hit him directly as he dissappears quickly so the rebound hit is better and you can even get 3 hits at a time. For the 2nd phase, again, do the whip strat, be close to him so fireballs dont hit you and throw 2 crosses at a time while jumping, be aware of your quantity of crosses so you dont accidentally hit him with the whip like me. This isnt that hard or annoying but the fact that you have to farm for each attempt really diminishes the possible fun you could get out of this
