It's Not Just a Typewriter Brand is an achievement in Alan Wake.




  • "QWERTY? DVORAK? 50 Taken know it's neither".


This achievement requires the player to kill 50 Taken with any type of Shotgun. Shotgun ammo is easily plentiful enough to complete the achievement in a single playthrough as long as the ammo is paced efficiently. It may be best just to focus on using one weapon for its respective achievement until the achievement is awarded. This makes it easier to keep focused on the kills needed for each individual weapon.

The title is referencing the Olympia typewriters that were popular in the early 1900s, as Alan uses an Olympia-style double barrel shotgun in this game.
