Welcome! I'm ShadowWarKing and here's my guide for the Xbox One and PC game Superhot. This guide covers all of the levels and secrets in detail, as well as some pointers for Endless mode.
This guide was written for the Xbox One version, but should apply to the PC and Mac versions as well, with the exception of Achievements and the controls (although using an Xbox One controler on the PC is possible)
Note that the levels are not in the standard numerical order, but seem to skip numbers. This is not a mistake and is the way the game actually orders the levels.

The game's very clever mecahnic means that time only moves when you do. But it doesn't stop completely, as bullets can still move - albiet very slowly - towards you and kill you. On the other hand, trying to play through Superhot like it's a regular First Person Shooter (FPS) will only get you killed. The enemies are called "Red Dudes" and they can be unarmed or carry weapons. If unarmed, they will kill you upon contact, so make sure that doesn't happen.
When you press B, you throw your weapon at the Red Dude, stunning him momentarily. This also destroys your weapon, which can be very useful if there are weapons lying around you don't want the Red Dudes to have. And if you're unarmed, you can still do some damage, because when you're facing a Red Dude and he's close enough, you can melee him by pressing the fire button. It'll stun him and 3 melees will kill him. You'll know he can be meleed if diagonal lines appear across his body when you face him. Blunt objects, such as bats, can be picked up. They work the same as melee but do more damage and only have a limited number of uses. Throwable objects can be picked up and hurled at Red Dudes. If diagonal lines appear on a weapon or object, that means you can use it, although you need to be near the weapon or object to pick it up and use it.
While my guide highlights the best strategy to clear the levels, you will be dying in Superhot unless you're very experienced, as stray bullets hitting you and being unable to dodge a bullet are two of the most common examples of death, and can happen at any time, regardless.
This is the first level of the game and is the easiest. Move forwards until you see a Red Dude at the end of the corridor. Stop, aim and shoot him. Turn around to find another Red Dude here. Pause to shoot him as well, ending the level.
Shoot one of the dudes to make your life easier. You see the railing on the right hand side at the end of the corridor? Jump off that. When you land, look between the grey pillars and you'll see a room with a computer screen, a couch, a table and an alcove. Focus on the computer screen and it will suddenly display fast-scrolling red text on a black backround. Interact with it to unlock the secret.
Get the gun from the car boot and shoot the far away Red Dude, who's moving towards you and is easier to shoot than the other Red Dude, who's moving sideways. Then, the other Red Dude will have turned to face you, giving you an oppurtinity for you to shoot him straight in the chest. Two more Red Dudes will appear, shoot the armed one first before turning your attention to the unarmed Red Dude.
Kill all of the Red Dudes but keep one alive so the level doesn't end. Go over the the area where the armed Red Dude came out of and you'll notice what looks like a set of stairs. Jump on the dumpster, the leap forward, ignoring the next stair, and you'll land on the stair after that. Make your way up until you reach the rooftop, where you'll notice, behind you, two blocks attached to the wall. Jump on both to get onto the wall, then drop down. Carefuly drop down again to the next ledge and run up to the wall. Now, carefuly (and this takes a lot of practice) jump, then move around the wall in mid-air. My advice is to hold LT, then swivel around the wall. On the other side amongst some weird throwable objects, is a computer screen. Approach it and interact with it.
You see the pillars on the left-hand wall? Move towards them as soon as possible, but be careful to avoid the bullets. Once you're safe behind the pillar, slowly move towards the pistol in the middle of the floor. Take it and shoot one of the Red Dudes, then take cover behind the space in the wall, where you can't be hit. Pop out and shoot the final Red Dude to end the level.
Follow the level as written above until you take cover in the hole in the wall. Then, throw your pistol at the last Red Dude to stun him. He'll be out of it long enough for you to rush over. There should be 2 pistols on the floor. The Red Dude will pick one up, you should pick up the other. Throw it at him to stun him, but also note that the pistol will fly out of his hands. Grab it and throw it at him again. Then, look to the left and you'll notice a window. Jump out of it onto a ledge. Then, jump forwards and move sideways in mid-air, as if you were trying to hit a wall. Suprise, suprise, you'll go right through the wall and into a long, wide corridor with a computer screen at the end. Note that the floor will change from solid to phasable, meaning that one moment the floor will be like a regular floor and the next you'll go right through it. I recommend jumping as much as possible and relying on blind luck to help you through this, as there's no way of telling if the floor's solid or not. When you're at the end, interact with the computer screen.
The game will ask you to throw your pistol at the Red Dude. Do so, as there's no other way ot of this. Grab the gun and shoot the Red Dude in the chest. There's another Red Dude up ahead. If you think you're good enough to be able to shoot him while he's sideways, then do so, but if not, then manouver yourself so you're facing him directly, and pull the trigger. Three more Red Dudes will suddenly appear, one unarmed and two armed. Look behind you to find an armed Red Dude. Line up your shot and fire. Turn around, wait for your pistol to cool down, and shoot the last armed Red Dude. We still have one more Red Dude left to go. Throw your pistol at him then melee him.
Kill the first two Red Dudes, then rush over to the end of the level, where there's a bunch of cars lying around. You'll notice a pair of floating cars. Jump on them, and you'll see an upside-down tree. This bit's tricky: you need to jump from the floating car onto the leaves of the upside-down tree. Press LT, and just as you move forwards, hold the LT button and glide yourself over to the tree. It takes some practice, but it should work. Once on the tree, jump over to the other side of the tree. You'll notice an upside-down phone box. Holding LT, jump over to the phone box and smash the glass. Once inside the phone box, look to the left to find an upside-down computer screen. Interact with it to unlock the secret.
This is the first time you're forced to use melee. So melee the Red Dude who is holding a pistol to your face. If you don't kill him, he'll fall in front of the oncoming train and die anyway. Grab the pistol and shoot the charging Red Dude in the head. Stand back, allowing your pistol to cool down. Turn around to see a Red Dude charging down the stairs. Another Red Dude with a pistol will appear. Throw your pistol at him, then pick up his weapon and shoot him. Another Red Dude will come down the stairs, shoot him with your pistol. Two more Red Dudes will appear from opposite the stairs, shoot them both to end the level. But instead of moving onto the next level, the game will leave you in the level. Wait a moment, then the game will take you to the home screen. You can reply to the message or ignore it.
You see the bin? Kill the first three enemies and jump on the bin. Then, jump onto the moving train and run forwards until you see a new area, drop down in here. You'll see a bunch of benches floating in mid-air. Jump on the first bench, then jump on the left bench. From the left bench, jump onto the next bench. Turn to the left, and you'll notice another bench. Jump on that one and then jump onto the next area. Now, we have 3 benches against the wall, like a staircase. Jump onto the last one and look up. Your computer screen is on the wall. Jump upwards to interact with the computer screen to get your secret.
Jump over the car and focus on the Red Dude who's just appeared from the left. Melee him and take his pistol. Look behind you as a Red Dude appears, armed with a pistol. Maouver yourself round and shoot him. Turn around to shoot another Red Dude. Suddenly, 4 more Red Dudes will appear, 2 armed and 2 unarmed. Kill one of the armed dudes first, then throw your weapon in the other armed dude's face - your ammo will be low or gone by now - and take his pistol. Shoot him, then kill the dude that picks up a pistol first. Lastly, throw your pistol into the last Red Dude, take his pistol and shoot him.
As soon as you jump over the car, head to the far right hand back corner, where there's a windowsill. Jump through it and follow the left hand wall until it ends. You'll have to jump to the block, then the next block, then the final block. Once you're up, ignore the phone box and heard staright for the carousel, where a computer is waiting for you. Interact with it to get the secret.
Grab the cup and throw it at the Red Dude, then take his pistol and shoot him. Head to either the right or the left and shoot the Red Dude there, then turn around and shoot the other Red Dude. Yet another Red Dude with a pistol will appear, shoot him too. Turn around to find another Red Dude, shoot him. By this point you'll probably be out of ammo, so fee free to pick up any weapons left behind by the Red Dudes. Two more Red Dudes will now appear, one armed and one unarmed. Shoot them both to end the level.
Once again, get the cup, throw it at the Red Dude, and take his pistol. This time, however, head to the right side of the room and break the glass. Kill any Red Dudes who might shoot you before you can get through the window. Once outside, head to the right again, past the cars, to find a weird moving toy with a spike on its head. Drop down carefuly, holding LT, to find another one. Move over to the next one, then, holding LT, pivot around the wall and drop down on another toy. Look forwards, away from the mess of blocks, and you'll find your computer. Before you jump, throw your pistol away, then leap forward and interact with the computer for the secret.
No guns here, but a few bats, which can kill in one strike. First, melee the enemy standing in front of the gate 3 times, killing him. Then, melee the closest batsman once and use the bat to kill the other batsman. Throw the bat at the batless batsman, then kill the unarmed Red Dude with the bat lying on the ground. Finally, kill the batless batsman and the gates will open, sending in 4 more enemies, 2 unarmed and 2 batsmen. Kill the first two batsmen with your bat, then use their bats to kill the last two enemies.
Kill everyone save for one enemy, as usual. Then, go to the end of the corridor and jump on the tripod-mounted camera. Use this to jump over the tall fence. Once outside, move along, past the cameras, until you see a basketball hoop. In the corner is your computer.
This is the first level to have a gun other than the pistol. Melee the Red Dude in front of you to death, then turn around and melee the unarmed Red Dude in the doorway to death. Slowly creep out of the door and a Red Dude will fire a shotgun at you. This sprays a large number of bullets across long distances, so it's ideal for taking out more than one target. Dodging the shotgun blasts, head over to the pool table, pick up one of the balls and throw it at the shotgunner. This will stun him and send the shotgun flying out of his hands, so go pick it up wnd kill him with it. Turn around and kill the pistol-armed Red Dude. 3 more enemies have suddenly appeared, all armed. One is armed with a shotgun and the others are armed with pistols. Take out the shotgunner first, since he's the biggest threat, and throw your shotgun at one of the remaining two Red Dudes. Pick up the fallen shotgun and use it to kill the last two Red Dudes.
Kill the first two Red Dudes as usual, the carefuly make your way over to the unmoving carousel, with the two bottles on it, but be careful not to get killed by the shotgunner. Don't kill any Red Dudes, as this will summon more Red Dudes, making your life harder. Once on the carousel, look up to see a ledge. It may take some practice to jump on it, but you ahould manage it. Once on the roof, bear in mind that you can still be shot, so take care while dropping down to the area below. Move forwards and eventually you'll come to the computer.
You'll be dropped down into a room with several Red Dudes around, and one of them will try to shoot you with his pistol. Move forward and kill him with your bat, then take the pistol. Move forward and you'll encounter a further two Red Dudes, one using a pistol, the other unarmed. Shoot the armed Red Dude then throw your pistol at the unarmed one and melee him to death. On the windowsill to your left is a katana, which serves the same purpourse as a bat, but has a lot more features. A katana can slice bullets in the air, it can be thrown at enemies and it can kill in one hit. This makes the katana very deadly to Red Dudes, although ahen the AI gets to use it, they never throw it. Anyway, take the katana and kill the pistol-armed Red Dude coming at you. Turn around to see two more Red Dudes, one with a pistol and one with a katana. Kill the katana-weilding Red Dude, then throw your katana at the pistol-armed Red Dude. Pick up the katana from the fallen Red Dude and turn around to find a shotgunner. Avoid the shotgun blast and kill him with the katana. Turn around to find yet another katana-weilding Red Dude. Kill him, then throw your katana at the last remaining Red Dude.
This one's difficult to get to, but it's possible. When the level begins, hold LT and manouvre yourself off the glass and onto the roof behind you. You only have a second to do this, so time is of the essence. If you fail, restart and try again. Once on the roof, throw your bat away and walk past the triangle-shaped part of the roof jutting outwards. A little corner of the roof has been cut out, leaving a space for you to jump down onto the floor. Once there, move forward until you see what appears to be a series of TVs stacked on top of each other. Move to the edge of the floor and hold LT. As soon as possible, move forward. You'll see several chairs and TVs floating around. Your computer screen is on the chair closest to you. Interact with it to get the secret.
As soon as the level begins, turn around and move to the space in the wall where you'll be safe from the lorry moving towards you. The same can't be said for the lone Red Dude, who will get crushed. The lorry will skid to a halt and a Red Dude with an assault rifle will appear. Assault rifles are dangerous, because they fire a lot of bullets in a short timeframe without needing to cool down, unlike the pistols and shotguns, which can only fire once before needing to cooldown. Try to dodge an assault rifle by moving unpredictably and by taking cover. You'll notice a small wall with two bottles standing there and one bottle lying on the ground. Pick one up and throw it at the Red Dude, then take his AK-47 and mow him down. Three more Red Dudes will appear, all armed with pistols. Kill them all with your assault rfile to end the level. But once again, the game will leave you in the level. Again, an incoming message will appear, which you can choose to reply to or ignore.
Follow the level as written above, but this time, don't kill the Red Dude with the AK-47. Instead, throw it away and jump onto the lorry. Then, jump onto the little fan. From here, go along and up the stairs. Alternate between climbing and jumping onto other stairs, until you reach the roof with a carousel on it. Ignore this and look at the wall where your computer is.
Go past the windows and the pillar, and you'll find yourself stumbling upon a whole group of Red Dudes. Go to the left to catch up with the shotgunner, then melee him and take his weapon. Kill the Red Dude with the assualt rifle up ahead. Move forwards a little and turn to the right to see another Red Dude with an assault rifle. Throw your shotgun at him then turn around to find another shotgunner. Melee him and kill him with his own shotgun, then kill the assault rifle Red Dude you saw earlier. A Red Dude will rush to the left, trying to get a shotgun. Throw your own shotgun at him then melee him to finish the level.
When the level starts, instead of going forwards, break all the windows, then stand on the table. Jump from the table to the open window, holding LT. Turn to your right and move around the wall until you come to an opening. The secret's inside.
This one has no secret and it's really easy. Stand still, then when the game tells you to walk, move around the cell. When the game tells you to stand still, do so. That ends the level.
Break the glass and grab the shotgun. No need to finish off that Red Dude, he'll fall to his death. Turn around to find a Red Dude with a pistol charging along the corridor below you. Jump down and fire your shotgun at the same time, before he can shoot you back. Move along and shoot the Red Dude armed with a pistol. Then fall back and grab the pistol from the Red Dude you shot earlier. Kill the Red Dude with the assault rifle, then take cover behind the alcove on the wall. Pop out and shoot the shotgunner, which will send more Red Dudes on the scene. Kill the first shotgunner with your pistol, then melee the Red Dude who comes out just in front of you and grab his pistol. Shoot him and the second shotgunner who's appeared behind the Red Dude you just killed. Take his shotgun and shoot the pistol weilding Red Dude in front of you, then take cover and shoot the assault rifle Red Dude. Throw your shotgun at the next Red Dude, armed with a pistol, then melee him to death and take his weapon. Use it to kill the last shotgunner and end the level.
Break the glass, but this time jump out of the open window. Move over to the right side of the scaffolding and make your way down to the bottom, where the secret is.
Grab to crowbar on your right and use it to kill the first two unarmed Red Dudes. Throw the crowbar at the Red Dude with a pistol and shoot him. Move over to the other side of the level, where a Red Dude with an assault rifle is waiting. Kill him with your pistol. Another Red Dude, armed with a pistol, will appear behind the Red Dude you just killed. Shoot him as well, then turn around to find a second Red Dude armed with a pistol. Shoot him as well, then throw your pistol at the Red Dude with the assault rifle coming from the left. Turn around again to find a pistol armed Red Dude coming at you. Shoot him, then throw your weapon at the other pistol wielding Red Dude before turning back round and finishing off the last Red Dude.
Continue the level as described above u til you come to the first pistol armed Red Dude. There's a stack of crates to the right of the Red Dude. Throw your weapon at him then jump on the crates. From there, jump onto the roof. Turn to the left and jump on the overhanging roof, then move forwards. You'll notice a bunch of fish suspended in mid-air. Drop down to access the secret.
Again, there's no secret here. Dodge the bullets until you get the "Die Dog" message. Then, just let the bullets hit you. Easy!
Melew the first three Red Dudes. Then grab the katana that's on your left and slice up the fourth and fifth Red Dudes. Move along the corridor, and you'll encounter three pistol armed Red Dudes. Use the katana to kill the first one, throw the katana at the second one, then grab the pistol and shoot the third one. Hide in one of the gaps in the wall, then pop out to shoot one of the two last Red Dudes. Repeat for the second Red Dude to end the level.
Continue through the level as normal until the fifth Red Dude is killed. Then, jump on to the rock shaped throwable on the pedestal. From here, jump onto the statue of an upside down man. You should land on the statue's feet. Jump onto the roof, then jump across the the other side, where the windows are. Be careful, as you can easily be shot here. Go through the window. From here, make your way to the edge of the platform, then, holding LT, jump off the platform. Move yourself forwards so you'll land on the smaller platform below, where the secret is.
I hate this level. It's way too easy to get killed. Anyway, you're in an elevator. Jump on top of the Red Dude to your left, then take his pistol, shoot the second Red Dude and then quickly throw your weapon at the third Red Dude. Timing is critical here. One slip-up, and you'll be dead. Take the pistol from the Red Dude you just stunned, then shoot the one of the two shotgunners as the elevator doors are opening. Throw your weapon at the other shotgunner. Now, turn around and melee the Red Dude behind you. Go over and melee the surviving shotgunner to end the level.
Play the level as normal until you need to kill the last shotgunner. Don't. Instead, jump out of the window furtherest from the elevator. Holding LT, move around until you find solid ground. Head round the corridor to find the secret.
Again, no secret. Move around until you're told to "watch closely", then keep spamming the A button. Move around until you're promted to leave, then keep spamming the start button. Eventually, you'll be allowed to return to the main menu. There's anothere incoming message, which you can't ignore, so press the A button to reply to it. You'll have to wait until the chat is over before continuing.
Jump down and aim for the assault rifle Red Dude so you can kill him quickly. Turn around and kill both of the Red Dudes with your katana.Reinforcements will arrive, so throw your katana at the assault rifle Red Dude at the top of the stairs. If you miss, grab a pistol and shoot himinstead. You'll want to grab that pistol anyway, to deal with the remaining Red Dudes. Shoot the katana using Red Dude who's coming down the stairs. Wait for the last three Red Dudes to get down to the bottom of the stairs, then shoot them with your pistol. If you run out of ammo, then throw your weapon at a Red Dude.
When the level starts, turn to the right and walk through the curved wall. Once you're through, drop down below. Then, turn around and go round the corner and along the narrow, dark platform. Move along to find the secret.
Go round the corner and throw your current weapon at the Red Dude who is charging towards you. Take his pistol and shoot the Red Dude behind the window. Shoot the third Red Dude before continuing ahead to find a shotgunner standing guard outside a door. Kill him to open the door. As soon as possible, shoot the Red Dude in the back right hand corner of the room, before he can shoot you with his assault rifle. Swap your pistol for the shotgun dropped by the guard you killed. Take care of the remaining three enemies before going into the room. Suprise, suprise, there's more. Use the shotgun lying onthe table near the entrance to the room and kill the first two assault rifle armed Red Dudes. Take an assault rifle from one of the Red Dudes you just killed and use that to shoot the shotgunner and the pistol armed Red Dude. Throw it at the assault rifle weilding Red Dude and take his weapon. Shoot him with it, then finish off the last Red Dude.
Turn to the left when the level starts to find a window. Jump out of it and move to the right, where there's a ledge. Move along the ledge until you find some sort of strange moving machine. Tucked away in the corner is the secret.
Continue forwards until you see yourself. Melee yourself, and then go through the chat. When you're returned to the menu, select the quit option, then go through the next chat.
You now have a new ability: Hotswitch. Press X to Hotswitch into enemies. Essentially, you take control of them permanently, and your old body is destroyed. It kills enemies instantly, but has a cooldown bar at the top of the screen. Hotwsitch into the enemy, then grab a bottle from the bar and throw it at the Red Dude charging at you. Melee him, then pick up the golf club in the corner and use it to kill the batsman. Throw the club at the shotgunner, then take his weapon and kill him. Throw your shotgun at the Red Due with a pistol, then Hotswitch into the other Red Dude with a pistol. Melee the Red Dude with the assault rifle to end the level.
Hotswitch into the first enemy, then throw the bottle at the second enemy. Head for the unbroken window and break it, then jump out of the window and move to the left. Ignore the first area and instead continue past to find the secret at the far wall.
Hotswitch into the Red Dude with the assault rifle. This is the only thing you can do, as any other move will result in you being killed by the assault rifle. Turn around and grab the crowbar, then use it to kill the shotgunner. Take the shotgun and use it to kill the Red Dude by the window. Another shotgunner will appear. Throw your shotgun at him and take his weapon. Use it to kill both him and the shovel-wielding Red Dude who will appear behind the shotgunner. Hotswitch into the Red Dude with the assault rifle at the top of the ramp. Grab the fire extinguiser and use it to kill the last Red Dude.
Hotswitch into the Red Dude on your left. Then, jump out of the window and move around to the scaffolding. Head up as far as you can, then you'll find a bridge that will allow you to move to the other side of the area. Be careful, as you can get shot at here. The terminal is on the other side.
Move forwards, then hotswitch into the shotgunner. Again, move forwards, melee the pistol armed Red Dude, then take his weapon. Use it to shoot the next pistol armed Red Dude and shotgunner, before hotswitching into the Red Dude with the assault rifle. Grab the shotgun from the fallen enemy, then kill the two pistol armed Red Dudes and the third unarmed Red Dude. Hotswitch into the second unarmed Red Dude, then pick up a pistol and use it to kill the last two Red Dudes to end the level.
Hotswitch into the shotgunner, then kill the pistol armed Red Dude. Jump out of the window nearest the shotgun lying on the window ledge, then drop down to a ledge below. Move aling until you see a keyboard and computer screen floating in mid air. Jump on the keyboard, then look up. The secret is on the wall. To reach it, you'll need to jump, then activate it in mid air.
Instead of grabbing the throwable payphone, instead turn to the left and hotswitch into the Red Dude with an assault rifle. Melee one of the two pistol armed enemies, take his weapon and shoot them both. Two Red Dudes will spawn, one with an assault rifle and one with a pistol. The assault rifle poses a bigger threat, so throw your weapon to stun him before taking his assault rifle and shooting both enemies. The train behind you will move on, revealing two enemies armed with assault rifles. Hotswitch into one and melee the other to end the level.
Hotswitch into the first enemy as shown above, then kill one of the enemies - throw your weapon at the other, but leave him alive to prevent more enemies spawning. Jump on one of the benches on the platform, then jump onto the small roofs of the glass boxes, then jump onto the actual roof. Follow it until you see a wall on the right hand side with pillars on them. Jump on the pillars, then jump on the wall itself. Jump across the chasm, using the boxes to keep yourself from falling. Once on the roof of the far away train, the secret is at the end.
Move forwards and grab the shotgun. Three Red Dudes are here: shoot at the one on the right and hotswitch into the one on the left. Melee the one in the centre, then take cover behind the rectangular box on the right. Wait until you regain your Hotswitch, then Hotswitch into the pistol armed Red Dude. Melee the shotgunner, take his weapon and kill the last enemy behind you.
Turn around and move towards the back of the train, then, holding LT, jump off the train and carefuly manouver yourself onto the carriage, where the secret is. Pretty simple.
Turn to the left and Hotswitch into the pistol armed Red Dude. Move forwards and melee the first shotgunner, then take his weapon and kill the second shotgunner. You might want to use the first shotgunner's body as a shield. Move forwards, and take out the Red Dude with the assault rifle, using your shotgun. A second one will pop up, dispatch him with your shotgun as well before turning around and Hotswitching into the assault rifle weilding enemy behind the gate. As soon as you've Hotswitched, head straight to the left and pick up the bat. Use it to kill the pistol armed Red Dude who has just appeared round the corner, then take his weapon and shoot the last enemy, who's using an assault rifle.
You see that little ledge just in front of you when you start the level? Jump on that. Jump onto the wall above, then move along and drop down. The secret is against the wall.
If you can do it, then throw your katana at the Red Dude with the assault rifle at the end of the lobby. I can't seem to get the aiming right, ao I usually just Hotswitch into the Red Dude. Take the shotgun lying beside the plant pot and use it to kill the assault rifle armed Red Dude to the right and a pistol armed Red Dude. Hotswitch into the other pistol armed Red Dude, then melee the third one. Grab a pistol and shoot the Red Dude behind you, then pick up their weapon. Use it to kill a shotgunner before hotswitching into the last enemy to end the level.
Hotswitch into the first enemy, then head straight for the left, dodging bullets as you go. Beside the chair against the wall, there's a secret wall that you can walk through. Do so, then turn to your left to find a series of boxes. Jump across them, then jump onto the platform next to you. Move along until you see a bunch of wires, then jump across them. Nesting in a corner is the secret.
Move along the corridor until you reach the next level. This isn't exactly difficult.
Stick to the left hand side, and you'll find a wall which you can walk through. You'll find yourself on a platform. Holsing LT, carefuly jump off the edge of the platform, and manouver yourself to the platform just underneath it, where the secret is.
This is the last actual level, and it's really difficult. Enemies will come at you from all directions, and your only hope of winning is to survive long enough to Hotswitch into the core (a big red triangle you can Hotswitch into).
As the level begins, move forwards and Hotswitch into the core. You'll be removed from the core and two Red Dudes will be at your side, one with a pistol, the other with a shotgun. Grab the ashtray and throw it at the Red Dude on the left, who has the shotgun. Take his weapon and kill the pistol armed Red Dude. Another pistol armed enemy will appear just ahead, kill him and take his pistol. Turn around and kill the shotgunner. Your Hotswitch should have regenerates, if not wait a few moments and then Hotswitch into the core. Once you've been pulled out, turn to the left and melee the enemy about to shoot you. Take his pistol and shoot the enemy opposite him. Kill the shotgunner, then take his shotgun and kill the pistol armed enemy behind him. Kill the next pistol armed enemy in front of you then turn around to kill the one behind you. Throw your weapon at yet another pistol armed Red Dude who's popped out from behind a corner, then shoot the enemy behind him. Kill the shotgunner who spawns behind the enemy you just killed. Then turn around and kill the next three shotgunners. Your Hotswitch shouldd have regenerated by now. Hotswitch into the core again.
You'll be pulled out for the last time. Grab the spanner in front of you and throw it at the shotgunner, then take his weapon. Head down the area, killing another shotgunner, then go to the long corridor, picking up a weapon as you go along. You can use this as a bottleneck. Since moving backwards very quickly will decrease the time needed for your Hotswitch to recharge, and seeing as enemies never rush over immediately, you'll knock off a good chunck of your time needed to get your Hotswitch back. Kill the enemies at the entrance, then walk around for a bit until your Hotswitch gets back up, then Hotswitch in the core.
This next part is easy: simply hover over each enemy to kill them. Simple!
Last secret! Rush down the corridor, then kill the Red Dude who suddenly appears on your right. Jump on the computer terminal, then jump on the box, then jump on the ledge, then jump on the light fixture, then jump on the top of the wall, then jump on the wall. Turn around and run to the end, then jump down. Around the corner is the secret.
Walk up and shoot the person in the head.
Congratulations, you have now beaten the game!
Superhot has 25 achievements, worth a total of 1,000 Gamerscore. Note that the description of some story-related achievements may reveal plot spoilers.
Launch all the apps in the system
Simple. Launch all apps in the system. This includes credits, but doesn't include the leave option. You need to have cleared the game first to unlock the credits.
This achievement used to be glitched, but a patch has fixed the achievement
Kill over 1987 Red Dudes in Endless Mode
This is a not a very tricky achievement to get, but it is time consuming. My current best is about 25, and I can get about 15 kills per game of Endless Mode. So it would take about 75 - 150 games, depending on your skill level. Bottom line: this is gonna take a while.
Discover all secrets
The guide covers the secrets for all of the levels in the game. If you're struggling on a level, this guide can help you.
Kill 3 enemies with one shotgun blast
Tricky, but doable. Endless mode or level 34 is best for this. Try to get enemies that have just spawned.
Kill 100 enemies with melee
I would recommend playing the first few levels, or using Endless mode. The AD2013 challenge offers killing punches, so that might help as well.
Unlock all Endless levels
Simply kill a certain number of enemies in the previous level to unlock the next one. Not too hard.
Get RED ending on every level of the Speedrunrt challenge
This is similar to "Stand REDy" but is a lot harder. You can't pause to think or you won't meet the time limit. Really quite tricky.
Squash, break and smear an enemy under your heavy boots
I prefer to use Level 20 for this achievement, as you can get it at the very start. Basically, jump directly on top of an enemy to kill them, and you'll get the achievement.
Kill 100 enemies with the pistol
If you get every headshot with the pistol, then you can get both achievements at the same time. Easy!
Kill 100 enemies with the shotgun
I prefer to use endless mode for this achievement. There's plenty of shotguns there, and the enemies don't run out.
Make two bullets collide with each other
This one is slightly tricky, but given the right circumstances, it can be easy. When an enemy tries to shoot you, stand still and aim at the bullet. A shotgun will help for this, although I prefer to use the pistol. The assault rifle really isn't useful if you're trying to get this achievement.
Kill 100 enemies with headshots
Use the pistol for this achievement, as they have the most precision out of the three guns you can use. Shotguns are hard to aim accurately at heads, but you do stand a chance of hitting the head. Just forget the assault rifles here. They'll do nothing.
Kill 3 enemies with one rifle burst
Again, endless mode or Level 34 is best for this. Easier than getting 3 kills with one shotgun blast.
Kill 100 enemies with the assault rifle
Again, Endless mode is best for this. Assault rifles are the least common weapon in the game, so it may be a little grindy, but it's doable.
Kill 2 enemies with one katana throw
Level 19 is best for this. Wait until two enemies are right behind each other, then throw the katana. Make sure they're close to you, just to make things easier.
Slice a bullet in half with the katana
This one is fairly easy, but requires a little skill with the timing. When a bullet is coming towards you and it is highlighted in red, that means you can cut it in half. It's fiddly, so it may take a few goes, but it should be somewhat easy.
Get RED ending in every level of the speedrun challenge
The guide's methods will apply to the speedrun challenge. Other than that, just keep trying levels if you don't do them in time. A useful trick for me is that, if you have two enemies close together, or one enemy just behind another, you can position yourself as to kill them both with one shotgun blast. My strategies above for the levels will work fine for the speedrun.
Kill 100 enemies with the katana
Use the katana-only challenge for this. Seeing as the only weapon you can use in it is a katana, you'll rack up the kills pretty quickly.
