Hammerwatch Genocide Achievement Guide

To obtain the Genocide achievement in Hammerwatch, you need to kill 250,000 enemies in the campaign. However, getting this many kills may give you a hard time if you don’t pick the right character. To make things easier, here’s how you can easily obtain the achievement.

First of all, Pick the Wizard, his Standard Attacks Cover more Ground than anyone and just play the game until you get to the first Bonus Stage (which looks like Gauntlet).

Make sure not to buy the Combo Nova, it might screw you up, you can buy anything else that you wish thou, be aware of taking range for your attacks because that might end up destroying the Spawners while you take down all the enemies.

Here, get to the room in the south, the one with the most Spawners. Fight awhile on one spot, make sure to get as many health and mana drops on exactly one spot, right in the middle of all the Spawners is the best place.


Once there are enough item pickups there, stand inside them, if there are enough, the enemies will be unable to hit you.

No, you can just kill them as they come, or even better! Just do something else until they stack themselves up. Just don’t forget about it, there is a maximum of enemies that can be there since the Spawners get blocked sooner or later, they won’t be able to shoot out more Dudes.


Also, your Frame Rate might suffer quite a bit, just so you know. A full room (or max spawn) is around 1600 enemies and takes around 3 minutes to fill up, meaning it will take quite a lot of time to finish this achievement.

Additional Tip

Make sure not to use your magic attack, since you will be on top of mana crystals, you will eat em up real fast and it will probably make you get hit again.
