A Friend In Need (25G) is an achievement in the first DLC episode, The Signal for Alan Wake. This achievement is story related and therefore cannot be missed.



  • Special 1: Find someone to help you.


  • You found Barry, or at least the next best thing.


During The Signal, Alan will come upon a page of the Departure (Manuscript) that Thomas Zane has left to help you. Once you take the page, Typewriter Words appear from it, one of these being the word "friend." Upon shining your light on it, Imaginary Barry will appear and the achievement will unlock.
