I started my evil playthrough and didn't change the diff to hard until I reached the parking garage near ground zero (just after the initial explosion) am I ok for this achievement? I hadn't gotten into any combat situations but I don't want to get too far into the game again if I should have changed it back when you first take control of Cole.

My best bet on getting this trophy when you get round to fighting Kessler is to stay on the move, make sure you dodge most (if not all) of his attacks (I find that using circle to keep dodging left an right works well) other than his speedy attacks and astronomical amount of health, he's quite easy to beat haha

The use of the L1/R2 = leaching power from Kessler coupled with the dodging/O was the straw that broke the camels' back so to speak. I was stuck on defeating this boss until I employed this technique also when Kessler is shooting his charged ray don't let him hit you or the consequence will be a sequence of eruptions or flurries you can't avoid. Iif you manage to avoid the ray, Kessler's subsequent attacks seem more timid than the all out savagery he will unleash if he tags you with one.

|Comment #17 by beartrap25|
Tuesday, July 26, 2011 @ 01:43:43 AM
Kessler can be beat on hard so long as you can dodge his electric bolts long enough to take down 1/3 of his health. His version of the shockwave is particularly nasty too because he comes out of nowhere and knocks you down. Try to avoid with "O". About his lightning bolts... After his third or fourth shot, he kneels down, apparently weakened. When he goes down, nail him with MW Hammers and Grenades. If you run out of charge, use his kneeling time to recharge. Every time you take him down 1/3 of his energy, there is a cut scene and if you die, you come back after that particular scene. So, you only need to focus on taking him down 1/3 of his health at a time.

Why is everyone saying this is so hard? I did this on my good playthrough and only died like a total of 4 times and only one of those was against Kessler.
For beating Kessler, dodge ALL attacks and after he misses with shockwaves, he kneels down. Launch 3-4 Meggawatt hammers at him and then drain more energy before he attack. SIMPLE! :)
|Comment #19 by Halnon|
Tuesday, August 02, 2011 @ 09:49:55 AM
Yeah Kessler's movements are pretty linear, just fast...once you get used to the fight it's relatively easy to anticipate his moves.

Tuesday, August 23, 2011 @ 04:15:23 AM
I started the game on normal, after 3 missions the game jacked the difficulty up to hard, and as it's not that hard I stayed with it and got the Hard Finish trophy at the end.
Kessler is very just as easy as Alden if you just dodge everything he does and attack him with a bolt each time he fires his laser and pelt him with grenades when he rests after 3-4 shots. Only danger is his quake attack where I just rolled as far away as possible, sometimes resulting in him grabbing me with his Sith-like lightning attack which does considerably less damage than the quake.

I didn't have to play the entire game on hard to get the trophy, all I did was copy a save file from the internet and then beat kessler and I got the trophy. Try it, theres lots of saves on the internet, I also used them for the blast shards and Casey Jones.

as long as you didnt do any missions yet, you can change the difficulty to what you want it at (in this case hard mode), i did the same thing haha

FINALLY! Wow was this brutal at the end, but I got it. Most of the game was a little tougher than on easy, died a few extra times here and there, no big deal. The final fight against Kessler though, that was nasty. It took me over 4 hours to beat him. Tried for like an hour and a half, then came and read tips, then played a few more evil side missions to upgrade Arc Lightning, then tried again and it still took me another hour. So about 2.5 hours of actual fighting vs Kessler. He just kept hitting me with his air shock, ground quake, and those giant ghost-things. And then those flying grenade launchers were a pain. What a relief when I finally beat him and got this trophy!!

i read the comments here before starting my hard/evil run. i was kinda afraid of kessler in the end, but i beat him in 15 minutes and only died three times. just keep spamming him with the rockets, dodge the lighning attacks and hover over the quake attack. It's simple as that!

I'm going through my first playthrough evil and saving Hard for my good run like the guide suggested, but...I think I'm starting to regret it. Can someone please explain the rationale behind why it's better to be good during the Hard run? I can only think of ways it'd be more difficult... Like, just off the top of my head, Bio-Leeching people works against your good karma, and I suspect you'd have greater need of it on Hard. Are there parts of the game that are just totally different and easier when you're good or what?

I had a relative medium battle againts Kesler using the full Arc Lightning evil power. Basically spamming the attack and recharging
|Comment #35 by Merkflare|
Thursday, March 08, 2012 @ 12:44:31 PM
I actually didn't find Kesler very difficult, static thrust over his quake, dodge his Shockwave, dodge his Lightning, kill any other minions he spawns. He will shoot his Lightning Beam 3 times, and then crouches down sapped of energy, this is a great time to light him up. I just used lightning the whole time on him, no special abilities, it was easier that way.

I started my good playthrough and before i took a single step i changed the difficulty to hard and it has stayed that way ever since. i beat kessler and got the good finish trophy but i didnt get the hard finish....anyone else have this problem?

Tuesday, June 26, 2012 @ 10:58:30 PM
I started the game off on Hard from the very beginning and never looked back. That being said today was the first time I beat the game (on my Good Karma Play-through) and I will be the first to say that Kessler probably seems like the hardest boss EVER at first, I know he did for me. I must have died 30 times and about ready to break my entire entertainment system. I think we all thought this was going to be like Sasha or Alden, but he is a whole other beast. That being said once you get used to him, it's all about your own tactics and what you are comfortable with. Personally I rolled every time he would come close to me and try and use shockwave and spam him with grenades and then he would go to the laser thing and spam him with grenades, etc... (I don't think I used anything else ;p)

I had a 2nd part reply to your comment RepearSM69 but I guess it didn't appear. I have never heard of that Glitch ever. Having beaten it today/this afternoon, I know Hard Finish was either the second trophy I got or the 3rd. (First was Good Finish, then I believe Hard Finish and then Urban Designer). There definitely was some lag time between the trophies at least 30-45 seconds between each one, so maybe you didn't wait? (Though I doubt that this is the case). Honestly that is a screwed up glitch.

This trophy is easy until, kessler comes in as the last boss but, that was the only hard part that's very annoying.
|Comment #47 by ServantOfGlaaki|
Monday, August 13, 2012 @ 04:13:22 PM
Kessler took about 40 mins on my Evil playthrough. I found Arc Lightning worked best for me - I used it to clear the ghosts and drones, and it sometimes branched to Kessler. Most of the time I was dodging the blasts and lasers and static thrusting over the quakes.
Be ready for the button mash at the end - it seems harder than the Sasha fight, and I failed first time.
Annoying fight - glad it's done.

Monday, August 13, 2012 @ 04:30:30 PM
Reading here and on other sites, it looks like there might be a glitch with the hard trophy. Some people have reported that, after starting a new game and changing the difficulty to hard, the trophy didn't pop at the end. This sucks if true - the easiest and laziest way to code the trophy would be to lock it if the difficulty is changed at all.
The best method seems to be to start a new game on normal (or easy) and let the game auto-change it for you in the first few missions.

The first time I ever played inFamous it came up and changed the difficulty when I was going back into the Neon under the bridge after meeting Moya. Boyfriend got real pissed off cause it didn't do it to him :)
After reading about people having issues, and deciding that two play throughs is plenty enough for me :P
>New Game... >Change difficulty to Hard... >New Game(no need to save)
The game automatically sets the difficulty at whatever it was in the previous game, so I'll let you know if I get it :)

On 1st play through I played good karma on easy. Once I beat the game I started a new game. The 1st moment I could (helicopter telling me to look up) I changed difficulty on hard and plate evil Karma all the way throught. I got the hard finish trophy just fine.

I started the game on hard and its the first time i played this game (got the collection). The game itself wasnt that hard i used the rooftops a lot so i wouldnt be completely shot down in the streets but kessler is a pain, still trying.

Saturday, March 02, 2013 @ 11:49:59 PM
Not sure why everyone said the the last boss was difficult. I have only died twice and all you need to do is spam the Whatever hammer at him once he rests and that's about it.

Friday, April 12, 2013 @ 02:19:47 PM
@hung00xx you must be really big in your pants ... if its so easy why not helping with some hints.
for me the most helpful thing was to hover above the groundshockwave (the thing he does after the speed zickzack and the "forcepush") somehow i havent done this until i saw a video - i only jumped and got hit half the time ... than just hammer away the normal lighning and after kessler does his 4times lighning use mwhammer just like so many times adviced above...
|Comment #59 by hung00xx|
Friday, April 26, 2013 @ 07:58:27 AM
@Quidac its not hard at all, once you learn how learn his attacks and how to evade them! might take few tries at first, but once you learn them you can beat him no time.

I'm also not sure why the guide says to do this on a Good playthough.
I'm about 2/3 done with my Hard run, being Evil, and the Evil powers are a lot stronger then the Good ones.
Why do this on Good?
|Comment #62 by Earthbound_X|
Monday, May 06, 2013 @ 09:08:18 PM
Huh, just beat Kessler on Hard, and I only died twice.
I think since I died a lot more then that on Normal at this fight, that I learned all his attacks and they were easy enough to dodge.
|Comment #63 by acedragons|
Monday, May 20, 2013 @ 01:23:12 AM
So I was kinda worried about Kessler on hard since several people seem to have had an issue with him, but he was such a push over. Died three times and not because of it being hard, but because of not paying attention to his dumb grenades and rolling right into them SO LAME. Other than that really enjoyed the fight and the key to beating him is just patience and learning how he attacks and moves. It's really simple after that.
