Finally decided to start this up. Already did some other runs, including a melee-only on Survivor. I'm almost done with Chapter 4 now on this run. You can watch it here if interested: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC09UqeY80WzoWMnxRkL4Tkw
I'll edit the streams down later this week to just the highlights. So far the general strategy has been killing everything with stealth kills for tons of Gel. Knifing the Spawn (dogs) is a fun experience though. Rules of the run:
- knife only, so no axes;
- bottles and stealth allowed;
- allowed to aim with a gun, not shoot;
- upgrading, keys and such are also allowed;
- all bosses must be knifed, including Obscura2, Harbinger and Laura;
- Crow allowed;
- new game, nightmare difficulty.Run Exceptions:
- you have to open the gate in Chapter 3 with a stun-bolt;
- the Chapter 5 goo-boss can't be knifed, using unupgraded pistol there;
- the second part of the fire walk in Chapter 13 has been dubbed as 'impossible' to knife only, while I'm still not convinced but I can see why. One part has a very small arena and two Disciples coming for your blood. If 'impossible' I'll allow an unupgraded pistol there, but doubtful.
- you have to shoot some valves in Chapter 14;
- the final boss can't be knifed, using unupgraded pistol there.
