Glitches

Back to top

Easy Guardin' gnome achievement

when you rescue chompski from the game and are carrying him around then get knocked down (haven't tried with incapped yet) he'll be on the ground with a glow around him if you are near enough to grab him before you finish the standing up animation you'll pick him up but instead it will draw your gun and you can fire it switch to your melee and he'll be back in your hand but you can't use your gun until you do it again. (note: if incapped or knocked down while using gun glitch you will lose him but if you switch to him before he'll fall out of your hands like normal)

Expert Glitch

You will need 2-4 players online.
Play through a campaign on easy and be in an XBox live party chat.
At the finale saferoom people who want the achievement leave the game.
The remaining player will have to invite the other three immediately, but they wait to join.
The remaining player plays through the finale.
When the rescue vehicle arrives, throw a pipe bomb or boomer bile so that you can pause it to vote to change the game to expert.
At this point the other one-three will rejoin.
Fight off the hoard until all the remaining players return.
And then complete the finale.
The three that left and come back will get it, but the one who played the finale will not.
Good for Real Deal or Still Something to Prove

Stumbling Flight

As you may have noticed, when you change weapons while stumbling, your stumble is prolonged, so much in fact that if you continue changing weapons, it is possible to stumble forever.
However, if you do this while about to go over a hole or water or anything, you will merely just fly over it.
For example, The Parish Part 3, there are sometimes propane tanks that spawn at the crescendo point, you can place them down and with your back to the other side of the stage that the crescendo event would take you to, simply fly over to it.
Things that you can do to cause a stumble; shoot a propane tank up close, throw a pipe bomb at your feet.

What ever happened to Frank West?

You can find this in 'The Passing' chapter two,
After you get past the large digger, head into the bar through the entrance down the stairs, you will then have to walk forward past the door on your right and into the room in front, look left and there will be a message to Otis from Frank West.
