|Just a Flesh Wound||15|
|Complete the final round of 5 Finger Filet|
Unlike Tombstone, 5 Finger Filet is pure skill game, where you have to place your hand on a table, palm down, with your fingers spread out while stabbing the area in between your fingers with a sharp knife. The areas you must hit are highlighted on the table as the knife automatically pans over your hand - press the button shown on screen to stab the table at the right time as the knife hovers over the target area. Quick reflexes and pattern recognition are a must if you hope to succeed at this. Note: Round 1-4 is scripted to be the same every time. Round 5, however, is not, which makes it a much more challenging challenge to complete. Good luck!

Monday, October 03, 2011 @ 02:53:42 AM
Good luck for those trying for this one. The first 4 rounds can be gotten easy through studying the pattern and practice, but the 5th and final round is generated randomly. Which means each final round you encounter will be different.
You only get 3 strikes until you fail the round, and that just isn't good enough, since most of the times the patterns are right next to each other. I tried pausing the game, which works, but when you resume the game you lose the timing.
|Comment #11 by davewiththeid|
Tuesday, October 04, 2011 @ 01:18:51 PM
Yeah, after several tries I found pausing to be the best method for the final round. Hit A and pause at the exact same time. Got it eventually.

On round 5 this minigame turns into a joke, i cant do it not even with the pause method im giving up on it beucase its making me soooo mad and wasting my time where i could be doing anything but stabbing myself in the finger constintly and 1 time i got quite far and it went on forever i ended up like hitting 15-20 glowing sections and it still wasnt over

I must reiterate the excellent advice given above... once you get to round 5 just use start+A which makes this a breeze. If you don't follow that advice you run the risk of throwing your controller through the screen.

I finally got this one. Rounds 1-4 I practiced a ton. Round five I did the pause trick and that took about 8 tries. I am a stubborn bastard, but now I am a proud stubborn bastard hehe. A major pain in the ass, but very sweet when you get it. I concentrate on where the red dot is and the pause... Very tough... too tough like I want to smash my controller against the developer's head tough..

Even with the pause method, you need reflexes lol. It's not as hard as some are suggesting though. Maybe cuz I paused for every hit, every round. It's much less stressful that way, and only takes about 10 minutes of concentration.

Monday, January 16, 2012 @ 04:46:37 PM
Tried the pause method and could never time it right coming out of the pause especially if the next stab was just one finger over. Finally managed to get it straight up without pausing. Felt like pure luck. I would definitely rank this 10 out of 10 on the difficulty scale. Now I just need 100% and races but all my saves are either in Captial Prime or just before that mission so the races are shut down. Anyone know if there's a way to get the races done without having to start a whole new game?????

Can confirm that the pause trick works great. Just hit pause immediately after you stab. If you hit them at the same time then sometimes it'll pause before the strike. This causes you to un-pause then stab right after. Took me awhile to figure out what was happening, but once you get the timing down it's cake.

Thursday, February 09, 2012 @ 12:49:50 PM
Also keep in mind during round five the next random space is always going to be in the opposite direction of the way your hand was going. So look in that direction for the next lit up space. Knowing this saved my ass, or hand I guess, and snagged me the achievement.

holy crap! i finally got it! after a day and a half of trying it on my own i tried the pause trick. took some getting used to, as you have to keep two timings in your head, the actual stabbing and the microsecond that u have to push A before the pause button. and i had trouble with the section in between the thumb and index finger oddly enough, but after 20 mins of this trick i got it! dont lose hope, it is doable! good luck guys

Wednesday, August 01, 2012 @ 11:19:59 PM
Took me just under 2 hours to get this, I think the game is named Rage ironically for this achievement. But it got easier with practice, and the pause method definitely makes it easier. I learned that pushing A and pause simultaneously screws with the rhythm a bit. If you hit pause straight after, a millisecond or two, it gives the knife time to lift up and gives you a wee bit better gauge of where it is again. The only reason it is difficult is because of when two are adjacent, and you tend to hit either too early or too late, hitting A about a second after pause seemed to get most of these. It DOES get easier when you get the hang of the pause, but fuck, I'd tickle this achievement's nutsack with a chainsaw anyday.

Not sure if this piece of info is relevant or helpful in any way, but I counted the stabs for some of the rounds (To keep my nerves steeled)
Round 1 consists of 11 stabs.
Round 4 consists of 25 stabs.
Round 5 consists of 32 stabs*.
*This is of course assuming that the number of stabs is scripted.
Keep trying to those of you who are frustrated, it just takes patience and practice.

Another trick that helped me was zooming in slightly on your TV. I'm using a Sony Bravia TV which has widescreen zoom, helps alot,. Still, couldn't have don't it without the pause trick. #86.....hehehe, I wasted an 45 minutes b4 looking on here for tips.
|Comment #88 by Grummy|
Sunday, September 09, 2012 @ 10:39:08 PM
If any of you are having the same problem I did when using the pause method, that sometimes your button presses don't register, try flipping your pad upside down for round 5. I found that it was screwing up for me because when pressing both buttons, I was slightly quicker with my left thumb. flipping the pad upside down puts your left thumb on A and right thumb on start, meaning that, if like me your left thumb was slightly faster, you'll always be getting button press in before pause. Doing it this way I got it on my 2nd try, and I only screwed up the first try because my timing was bad, my button presses counted every time.
Also, in case anyone worried about this, because you're pressing both buttons every time, there's no risk of getting it mixed up if you play it with the pad flip

I think some players are exaggerating how difficult this achievement is. It's not a walk in the park but I wouldn't say it's hyperdifficult either. Took me about 20 mins maybe? You just have to really focus and try to keep your reflexes in check.
Agreed with #87 about sitting close to your screen. That helped me IMMENSELY, helps you react quicker seeing exactly how much space you've got. Good luck to anyone still trying this one, just keep at it!

JOY, JOY, JOY!! FINALLY unlocked it. But only thanks to pause + A. Great guide by pwningyoursoul but, like others have mentioned, pause needs to be pressed like 2 milliseconds after rather than at the same time. Makes the world of difference!

Done on my second attempt, almost two years after launch! I got lucky and only had one or two stabs that were adjacent in the final round. Of course, I used Start+A (in case you are stuck. Hitting A and start will cut as the stab, and when paused it shows you the next one.
