    @macplash that all just sounds impossible to me! I’m lucky to win never mind without taking a hit and that’s nowhere near BC5 so yeh that must suck. But will you just instantly get it for free when we have that update or have to do it again?

    I know you weren't a big fan of the bridge constructors over poly bridge but if it cheers you up the new waking dead one comes out next week and the gameplay looks good and actually different to the other bridge games. Although I’m nowhere near as experienced in them as you.

    @ste86uk I highly doubt I’ll get it automatically once it’s added. I’ll just have to go through it again. I got lucky with Giantkiller XII with around 300.000 DPS plus like 2 star stats increasing damage and critical damage. Crazy. With Giant Whistle doing over 200.000 damage in one hit and mutations decreasing cooldowns of my skills I could spam that Whistle like every 3 seconds. Not to mention it interrupts enemy attack, so yeah. It’ll take some time to get this lucky again. But who knows when the update comes. It’s been added on PC around version 1.8 maybe even later which is after Bad Seed DLC, so we won’t get it before summer 2021 anyway. Doesn’t matter though. I was just disappointed because there was no mention of later version necessary on wiki. Like it’s in case of previously mentioned Bad Seed DLC and others. Well, I got over it already. It was still worth it to get at least that achievement.;)

    I hope you’re comfortable with those guys already because if not, these two are guarding the door to the Observatory. They’re always there, they’re not optional and they’re both holding the keys. Just teasing you so you have something to look forward to.:p

    @macplash Hope you can help. I'm having a bear of a time beating the Giant on 4 BSC. Have tried with tactics a few different ways (turrets, owl) but am barely making a dent. What's your preferred build for beating the giant? On a brutality run right now but am having a tough time coming up with a build that will be effective.

    @Kyle Johnson definitely go for Survival build against the Giant. At least if you’re going for the 5th cell. I went into details about my favorite one on previous page(s), but basically it’s all about the Giantkiller. If you haven’t beaten the Giant yet on lower difficulties I strongly suggest to do so just to unlock the Giantkiller. But it’s all about learning his patterns. Aside from his frantic 3rd phase he’s pretty easy to read. The easiest way is to deal constant damage to the hands until one of the eyes pops out. And then repeat. Combination of Giant Whistle, Giantkiller and mutations that decrease the cool downs of your skills is totally OP. Just give it a try.

    EDIT: THIS is the post I was talking about to save you the trouble looking for it by yourself.;)

    I was able to get it with a brutality build - swift sword, telluric shock, powerful grenade. I think the thing that most helped though was a colorless shield - punishment - each parry of Giant's fireballs was worth 25k damage. That was huge. Now I'm going to get mowed down by the HOTK due to a lack of potions! Thanks for your input!

    Just beat the game. What a journey. Astrolab is another difficulty on its own.

    And this thing. This f*cking thing.

    @pathogen541 Thanks man! That thing is not something you should be fear of tbh, just a pure frustration due to his attack pattern. You'll see him in Astrolab ;)

    @Kyle Johnson I've took the "classic" route. Did it with a survival build, Giantkiller + Repeater Crossbow + Ice Grenade + Giant Whistle with decent crit + frost synergies.

    @macplash Yo master! Such a fun ride it was. Again thanks for motivating me, without your push I wouldn't be able to break my 1BC barrier on touch controls. Now I'm just a bitter-sad since nothing is like Dead Cells, you know. All of the games suddenly feel....boring....

    @quangvietnguyen I agree with the master, Instinct of the Master of Arms is the key mutation here imho. I additionally may emphasize Dead Inside before facing with the very last boss, you may need some extra juice. Actually you can do it earlier too, since almost all of the foods will add to your Malaise on the 5BC, and you can do Necromancy to juice your HP.

    Had a break at 4BC. Finally bought a iOS controller and wanted to try a game with it.

    Just restarted playing and forgot how hard the game is :) It looks like they changed quite a lot of mechanics.

    @bx59 @macplash did you fully upgrade the forge and unlock all weapons or have you unlocked only the ‘good’ weapons for your builds ?
