Words Will Never Harm You (25G) is an achievement/trophy. It can be unlocked the first Alan Wake DLC, The Signal.



  • "Special 1: Trigger all of the furnaces in the basement".


  • "You made every furnace cough up its fiery death goodies".


You will enter a huge basement filled with Taken and typewriter word furnaces. You need to activate every single furnace in the area to unlock this achievement. There are at least 60 of them. Note that some furnaces are behind you and you can activate these through wire fences as well as other furnaces. It is common sense to first clear the room of Taken, preferably with the furnaces, so the time spent activating the furnaces will not be interrupted.


  • This achievement is a reference to the saying "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never harm me".
