Missed by a Mile is an achievement in Alan Wake.



  • "Perform a cinematic dodge 20 times."


  • "You managed a slow-motion dodge 20 times."


To earn this achievement, you need to dodge enemy attacks 20 times. You can dodge from a taken attacking you, a poltergeist object flinging itself at you or a taken throwing a weapon at you. A good way to get this achievement is to get just one taken to follow you, then just let him attack you while you dodge his attacks 20 times.


  • The achievement icon is reminiscent of the famous scene from The Matrix. It could also be a reference to another Remedy game: Max Payne.
