Skill Beats Gun is an achievement earned in Alan Wake's American Nightmare.




  • "You survived an Arcade level using nothing but the flashlight and handheld flares".


At the beginning of a Fight 'Till Dawn game, only two to three Taken will appear. More Taken don't actually appear until you kill the current Taken, so if you just keep running around in circles around the map, using any flares you find and dodging any attacks, you'll be able to survive 10 minutes without using any weapons at all. Just be sure to manage Alan effectively, because getting hit can stagger him, resulting in a chain of hits.
