Can you die and still get A+?

9 posts in this topic

I've seen posts that say to restart after the 1st death and others say it doesn't matter. 

 

Is there a limit to how many times I can die before I should restart?

Your deaths don't matter. As long as you get a solid combo then you will be fine.

Number of deaths is not a factor, but time IS.

 

Too many deaths = too much time. Though combo will give you more points than time, so you don't have to do no death runs. Just be quick with the killing and you should be fine. High combos lead to a good time in most cases.

Just use Carl and knock each enemy down and then perform the drill execution. I got the trophy pretty easily using this method and time isn't really important until some of the later levels.

Thanks for the other 2 responses too. 

 

I thought about the drill but it seems to always alert other enemies?

I don't know if it will help you or not but I always used Carl (frog mask - longer combo windows) for my grade runs. Find a route that you can bolt through killing as many as you can in a chain. Pretty sure if you get close to (in early levels) a 10 combo and over in later levels, you will pretty much always get top grades. It's all about route planning and stringing stuff together using melee or punch/executions to max points with combo multiplier, only ever use guns if it's too hard to get in close or to keep that combo going. Drill never worked for me I never seemed to get the massive points people spoke of :/

When using the drill you need to first knock the enemies down, preferably into a seated position (in a doorway or against a wall/object). You get points firstly for the knockdown/disarm and then the execution. Sometimes you alert a gang of enemies but you often have to lure them anyway so it's not a bad thing, just knock them all down and execute one at a time. You get so many points from these kills that, in my experience, you can still get A+ without time bonuses or the weapon variety bonus etc.

 

Honestly, I suck at this game and the trophy was relatively easy for me with the drill. As I said above, often in the later levels you may need a decent time bonus to get you over the line, but that comes with practice. Try it out on a few of the early levels and see how you do.

I think timer only runs when you're in a floor with enemies alive, resetting each time you die. I've sometimes spent 30 minutes in a level dying over and over again only to get a decent time bonus at the end.

 

To elaborate with an example, let say you're on the first floor - the internal timer will start at 0, and when you die it'll reset back to 0. If you clear it, it'll briefly record the time you took to clear that floor to some internal database. I'll use 50 seconds for this instance. On the next floor, the timer will start at 50, and when you die it'll reset back to 50 instead of 0. Let's say this floor is the last floor and you cleared it in 35 seconds. It'll then add to the 50 seconds to give you final time of 85 seconds which will be converted to a number score using some formula that probably depends on each level.

 

As for whether it's necessary for the A+ or not - if you're using Zach mask like I did for most levels the time bonus probably helps out more than if you use the Carl/Don Juan mask which doesn't reward you much for fast kills but does reward you with crazy boldness points for executing enemies in a certain way.
