"No surprise for you !" achievement
"Complete sample 8 without destroying a single bloated cell"

I seriously think this one is bugged. If I understand it correctly, a "bloated cell" is the huge one that spawns 3 small ones when killed. I tried it like 20 times, in more than half of the tries I was absolutely sure I haven't killed any of those. Yet I didn't get the achievement.

Less than 1% of players have done it. Any thoughts where's the problem?

I have this issue as well, that's why I went searching for an answer but nothing came up except your topic when i looked it up. Just did it 3-4 times, shot single cell only, and still nothing.

Are you sure you did not destroy one of the bloated cell which was out of the screen ? I'm pretty sure we've checked this achievement was manageable.

Later I even didn't collect weapon upgrades so the bullets went in a narrow cone. I was also shooting in bursts small enough to just kill only my primary targets. No shooting blindly, always close to the walls so the bullets that miss do not wander past the screen.

I'll check this out next week to be sure it's working.

FWIW I too am having some trouble getting this achievement. I intentionally hang out around the very bottom of the screen so that my bullets can't accidentally kill a bloated cell off-screen. A few times one or two little bullets would hit, but the bloated cells were never destroyed. Windows 7 x64, mouse/keyboard.

Same here, I've done the mission several times making sure I don't shoot bullets out of the screen and I can't get the achievement

Same thing with me. Was extra careful and it didn't give the achievement. Astats (achievement hunters site) lists no player who did it up to now. Yeeeess: that seems broken.

I'm having the same issue. I actually resorted to only using my EMP to kill cells so that I was 100% sure that I wasn't hitting anything off screen and still nothing. :(

I'll add my "me too" comment to the rest. Hope this gets resolved soon.

One of the achievements is broken? I find this unfortunate. Hopefully there will be a proper patch.

Well, the game has been removed from Steam, so don't count on it.
Pyta Feb 4, 2013 @ 10:39am 
Well, that's a bad sign. Anyone knows what's going on? I haven't found any info about that. I think we're not gonna get any official info about this issue.
