Gunless Wonder is an achievement in Alan Wake.



  • "Make it to Cauldron Lake without firing a single shot in "On the Road to Cauldron Lake".


  • "You managed to make it all the way from the dam to Cauldron Lake without firing a single bullet".


You earn this achievement by reaching Cauldron Lake without ever firing from a gun. You are allowed to use flares and flash bangs, but not flare guns. Obviously, the best tactic here is just running from enemies, making a bee-line to safe havens whenever possible. Also, be sure to pop flares whenever the Taken get to close; flash bangs are better saved for groups. Making good use of this, as well as timing your dodging correctly will make the achievement significantly easier.


  • The achievements name is a play on words for the saying, Gutless Wonder which is slang for a coward.
