Plenty of ways. Maybe he read about it in the comments, maybe he checked GameFaqs, hell, maybe he watched the other team's run.

I usually just have patience and watch these videos for the amusing banter.
 
But seriously. This isn't really all that difficult. The switching and running up makes it a LOT harder than it needs to be.
 
You have a shotgun. You've seen it can take down a regular enemy in one or two well placed hits...I don't know how you didn't realize that when it happened, or why you chose to write the shotgun off as shitty. OBVIOUSLY it does a considerable amount of damage if you aim well...it's a shotgun.
Just keep using that. If you run out of ammo, by all means switch to something else.
 
Why keep trying to get in close with a damned KNIFE for no reason on an enemy capable of killing you in a couple of fast grabs? It's frustrating seeing someone wasting time switching to the knife whenever she goes to a wall. Just shoot, run, shoot, run, shoot...
I was SO relieved when the knife was about to break, hoping they'd realize the shotgun was better, but nope.
 
And yeah, those side quests and what not you've been ignoring? Turns out they provide some extremely useful goodies. Even if you choose not to do them, feel free to use money every now and then.

Lets see...you have two guns that use ammo...and THREE types of ammo taking up inventory space.
 
Wouldn't it make sense to store that assault rifle ammo until you find an assault rifle so you could possibly hold something else?

I share the same sentiment, but 'shotty' kinda sounds like 'shitty' and that kind of logic seems to make perfect sense when bearing the shitty controls and mechanics of this game.

I kept waiting for brad to go Imma cut you bitch!

Posted by DJGhostmare

Every time Brad accomplishes even the slightest thing, the first line that comes to me is, "Great, kid. Don't get cocky!" Because, like clockwork, Brad gets full of himself and starts taking stupid chances. Ryan warns him every time and comments on the inevitable outcome, "you did this to yourself," he says.
 
So, yeah, Brad: Don't get cocky.
 
That being said, I love Brad. Brad's frustrated by the game, but Ryan just sounds frustrated at Brad. Hilarity!

" I am amazed, astonished even, that they didn't catch the fact that the quickest way to catch the witch is to run past, cue her attack animation and then shoot her from behind  in the cooter. Granted, when you're trying to conserve ammo, it is a less attractive option, but so much more effective then trying to knife her before she grabs you and then RUNNING before she grabs you AGAIN. "
Another easy way to kill these wall zombies is the flamegun you get from the Bones/Brian/graveyard side quest. Once they pop with the red stuff shot some fire at them and they die easily.

Agreed and I'm on a boat... the same boat.

I don't think I've ever yelled at the screen so many times before.  RUN.  RELOAD.  STOP PULLING OUT THE KNIFE AND JUST SHOTTY ITS FACE.  NO STOP RUNNING TURN AROUND AND SHOOT WHILE ITS JUST SITTING THERE.
 
I think Brad is sharing his rage with all of us.  Come on Brad, you can do better! no matter how much you hate the game, PAY ATTENTION TO OUR SURROUNDINGS cuz at the end of the day, you're going to have to replay it when you die!

Slam the knife technique all you want, but either way they were a lot faster at beating those enemies than VJ with the inf SMG.

" @Haru48: You're right, no one should say a game is shit because of one faulty mechanic. However, every goddamned facet of this game is horrendus, from walking to shooting to driving. The one redeeming feature of the game is how the overall horrible nature can make you laugh at it. He's right to call the game a piece of shit, because trying to use strategies that would be common sense don't work. The game's animations are horrendusly slow, and it's all too easy to die a cheap-ass death. "
Common sense has been given a shot very sparringly, I assure you. 
Deadly Premonition is not some spastic fever dream where logic dare not apply. Granted, its mechanics clunk rather uncomfortably along, but theys always remain at least serviceable, and they're nicely compartmented, so you know when it's time to crawl through a jittery rendition of Resident Evil 4 or wrestle your car down the road. To pass this game as an abomination on the basis of Brad's frankly bewildering decisions is a bit dishonest. 

 Though I must say Brad's confused self-assurance and Ryan's quiet resentment make for a charming endurance run.

@TheCheese33: What? No. This game has a lot of things that aren't that great, but none of it is broken. It's really really fun and super enjoyable. The side quests are great and the unlocks you get from them are actually meaningful. This game is really fun if you just sit back and enjoy it. Also if you don't blame your problems on the game. 
As they say: HATE THA PLAYA, NOT THA GAME!

Considering how frequently people talk about it, bit would be difficult for them not to know.
Posted by DragonofFate

There's definitely a lot more pent up anger and frustration in the BR run compared to VJ.

omg lol I <3 Brad

Posted by Scooper

Every 10 seconds Brad complains or moans about something and never pays attention to what's going on. Last episode when a zombie grabbed him Ryan said something like "why have you got your hands off the controller!?". It's a good point. They've been grabbed by zombies many many times so he must know he has to waggle the stick any second.  It makes it frustrating to watch, especialy watching the same boss like 10 times. It's like the polar opposite to the VJ ER where it's laughs and chuckles and they got loads of supplies and med kits. BR are just barely scraping through.

Posted by mythrol

Sorry Brad but you had this one coming. After killing a few you totally got too cocky. I find it hilarious that Brad complains about the game mechanics when it's clearly obvious what they are. Yelling, "He takes his weapon out too slow." like you EXPECTED it magically start being drawn faster after 11+ hours is just silly.
 
What's the old adage? Fool me once, shame on you. . .Fool me twice, shame on me.
 
Brad seems to keep thinking  if he magically becomes more efficient with the game then suddenly the game will behave like he wants it to.
 
Sorry Brad. At some point you have to stop blaming the game and realize it's limitations and work with it.

And yet they work their way through. I follow both groups, and what I notice is that BR may actually  be more proficient than VR in the game mechanics. Getting to Diann's, and  up to the Wall Crawler Lady went smoother for BR,  despite all the angst and 'hubri'.  I actually wonder if infinite SMG has not ruined VJ a little. BR cirtaintly got through Diann's side yard quicker. 
 
And BR figured out the wall lady to at least surviving for a  consistent kill, though I wonder if boom-boom to the head  with the crowd pleaserboomstick/shotty is not the ticket. Besides how far to run etc. I would have even tried some 10 mill while she was fooling around with glowing things and solid  at range. 
 
I enjoyed whatching this, though mabe not because BR are having a good time behind it.

Cannot wait till they get to the last bosses, FANTASTIC. 
 
One of the best games ever.

@Deusoma: aside from the comments, i thought that they weren't aloud to look up info about the games they were attempting the ER on in any form.
Posted by OwnlyUzinWonHan

I have to agree with the minority here, while DP's mechanics are doing them any favors, neither is Brad's pretty poor play. I was getting really nervous when the knife's health was getting lower and lower, because I did during the breaking animation at least four damn times in that multiple wall-lady corridor.

With every BR episode I am amazed at how bad Brad is at games.

There were only one question which required cultural knowledge of Japan in all of Persona 4.
 
But its correct that they intensively used the comment section to get through the game.  Vinny welcomed it even on the podcast and such.

Brad rage!!! woah!
Edited by Myomoto

Brad needs to stop whining like a little girl and blaming the game, when he is clearly himself fucking up extremely bad, like, why the hell wouldn't he use a health kit the second he got hurt bad, the game fucking pauses when you go to that menu.

Posted by Myomoto
@inkdude26:  I honestly think Ryan was giving Brad some space so he could better concentrate on the game and get through the segment.
Posted by mithical

NIce handling of the wall ladies, except omg why do they have so much health!? Is the golf club really that much stronger than the mission knife? At least the knife lasts a long time.

YEAAAHHH BITCHES!!! :D:D:D
Brad, you figured it out!:D:D:D This was a great piece of fighting!:D Real smooth, man.:D You even figured out better than Vinny and Jeff.:D Just a wall pipe in the hand and then, you will become a wall bitch-ass slayer.:D
You don't need an infinite ammo SMG, just your brain and,offcorse,Ryan.:D You guys are the best! GO TEAM B&R!!!:D

Posted by allhailthetv

At least they finally know about the unlimited SMG. Hopefully it should make the game go easier for them afterwards, since I'm favoring BR as opposed to VJ.

Vinny and Jeff only fought ONE of those things, plus they have infinite ammo for their SMG so why wouldn't they use it?!? I doubt Team VJ would have thrown 2 gold clubs away for one mission knife either. team BR=FAIL.

@mutha3: yea i remeber that, it's just that this time around i thought that since there are two teams competing (or at least i think they're competing) to see which team can get to the end fast enough, i thought that looking up any info on the game like how to get the best weapon or the fastest way to clear a ghost/zombie/demon infested area wouldn't be advised. aside from the comments because i know they're gonna know about that regardless.

God the games you could be playing....

my coffee warned me of another short endurance run by BR

Posted by natetodamax

How did VJ manage to catch up to BR? They were miles ahead a few episodes ago.

i enjoy this videos, that wall woman had extra nice titties

So is there no other way Brad can get the double clip/infinite ammo SMG? 

Posted by Korosive

For those who have not seen this ep yet, find something to do while it's on....

Doesn't he just have to do the Keith side mission? They're not getting any of the items VJ have because they're not bothering with side missions.

You're not alone. This episode especially. Brad, you're awesome, but you suck at games.
Posted by Moth_Pope

"Your hubris will be the end of us, Brad!" Ryan has a great use of English. Always uses words I haven't heard for ages. I love the circle of Brad being frustrated at the game, then Ryan being frustrated at Brad.
 
I've not played the game so I'm not sure how easy it is to miss stuff when you're actually in control, but there's so many things on the HUD that both team VJ and BR miss all the time, such as ammo being low, heart rate being high, gas running out, "Attack" being listed on some quick time events, items in rooms to pick up... It's probably that it's just more obvious when sitting here and watching it, but all these things seem like something I'd be keeping an eye on.
 
Anyway, really enjoying both endurance runs. Looking forward to seeing how each team takes on the story.
