Enhance Your Fighting Knife

Fighting Knife
Obtained after fighting Krauser during Chapter 14.

You can obtain the Fighting Knife after defeating Krauser in Chapter 14. You can enhance your Knife and use the obtained Fighting Knife. This Fighting Knife is one of the most powerful knife in the game.

Select Assisted As The Difficulty Level

Frugalist can be achieved in any difficulty, but if you want to be sure, choose the Assisted mode. The Assisted mode is much easier since the enemies that you will be facing are quite weak and not a handful to deal with.

Save Your Game Progress As Often As Possible

You will never know what will happen next, so make sure to always save your game progress if there is a chance, especially when you are about to face boss battles after Chapter 13.

Avoid Unnecessary Battles

Avoid unnecessary combat to reduce HP damage, or if it is not possible, try to take down these enemies by using enemies using snipers before they notice you.

Tune Up Your Body Armor Frequently

If the body armor is damaged in any way, you should tune up your armor often. Long-range attacks and explosions can reduce body armor's damage to 0.

Be Careful If You Want To Achieve Silent Stranger

If you are targeting the trophy called Silent Stranger at the same time, note that you are not allowed to talk to the Merchant and fix your Body Armor.

Check The Number Of Usage Through Challenges

Open the Challenges from the Options menu and then check for the Frugalist column to see the amount of how many recovery items that have been used throughout the story. If the number is zero, it is alright, but if it is more than one, you will have to start over, so be careful!
