Ammo
This game is unplayable if you run out of ammo.

Funny, that's the same reason I never could finish the original Resident Evil on ps and Dead Space on PC. Ran out of ammo both times. Haven't run out in AW yet, fingers crossed.

If you run out of ammo, just run the f*ck away and to the nearest checkpoint. Yeah, that's an option. The enemies disappear when you get to streetlamp checkpoints and 95% of them have some ammo near them.

Yeah, I guess I was just too frustrated to try the logical escape.

I have to admit that losing ammo due to the stupid "Handover checkpoints" frustrated me, but eventually I just adapted to it and found myself just using guns when I was cornered. I'm now playing through Nightmare on and off just using the flashlight to stun enemies and running away to the next light, as fighting on Nightmare really isn't an option.

If you run out of ammo, you're doing it wrong (applicable to both Alan Wake and Resident Evil).

I'm playing on the hardest difficulty and haven't run out of ammo one in my entire run.
What are you doing? Shooting the wall?

I think you probably havent realized it's a two stage fight. You need to use the torch to make them "real" then they only take about 2-3 shots to die.

how the hell did you run out of ammo? most of the time I was fine using just revolver killing everything.
Might be a good idea to use flashbangs properly for multi kills and use explosive barrels they barely hurt you but kill them kidna lame but oh well.
you did put your flashlight on them for long enough right?

I agree, but only at certain areas. Plus, it's difficult to run out of ammo unless you're unaccurate. Although if you do run out of ammo, at the areas where it's possible to get by, I'd recommend sprinting past the darkness.

I haven't missed a single shot and I ran out of ammo on lovers peak, also haven't missed any ammo drops. Actually ran past enemies to my next checkpoint which is poor by design; should have enough ammo to finish the job, an option to stealth, or a way of combat without ammo. One of the three, and yes I haven't missed a single shot, I'm too much of a competitive gamer to miss on stand-still NPCs, let alone actual clients

I'm running out at Lover's Peak as well.

I also ran out of ammo on my way to Lover's Peak. However that's the only time that ever happened to me. Seems to be a one-time-issue, so I guess you'll be fine afterwards.
verycatchy Jun 7, 2013 @ 8:45pm 
Yep, haven't run out of ammo since, just at lovers peak nightmare mode first time playing

I wish this game had an actual aiming system instead of this auto aim junk; It'd be better if you could headshot for 1 hits
