In Death Unchained

Overview | Achievements | Arrows | Beastiary | May 14-May 20 Tournament |

Superbright, the creators of In Death: Unchained, hosted a tournament that ran from Friday, May 14, 2021 - Thursday May 20, 2021. Details regarding this tournament were spread out across various videos and postings, so I created this page as a centralized location to compile the details together to provide as much information in one place as possible. Please note that I have no association with Superbright and that all information regarding this tournament was taken from Superbright posts, Youtube team content creator videos, and team champion posts. I made attempts to identify sources for all information published here.

5/14/21 Update: Superbright posted full details of the tournament with the legalese stuff this morning. Most of what is there is covered here minus the legalese, but you should still check it out: Superbright Tournament Details on Reddit

Tournament Tips

Aim for the head, the more distance the better, and keep the time between enemies as short as possible (<10 seconds to keep the bonus going). Save all orphans!
Headshots provide bonuses in Marksman(headshot points increasing with distance), Tithe(gold), and Executioner(consecutive headshot kills) categories. (Source: Fortheright)

Use regular arrows whenever possible. Save special arrows to save orphans or to stay alive.
Special arrows usually kill enemies without providing the opportunity for a headshot bonus. (Source: xBeanie)

Complete as many achievements as you can, with special focus on the following.
Unlocking enemies will provide more enemies to kill and bonus gold will contribute to the headshot bonuses
