Nigel Lowrie is an achievement in Hotline Miami.


To unlock this achievement, take a knocked-down enemy as a human shield. This can be done by pressing space when over a knocked-down enemy while wielding one of these firearms:


  • You cannot take a human shield with an empty gun.
  • You cannot lock onto enemies when using a human shield.
  • You cannot look around using "Shift" while using a human shield.
  • If you get shot while using a human shield, you will be locked in place. (Executing an enemy when been shot is just going to drop him, instead of snapping the neck.)


  • When you take an enemy as a human shield, your speed increases drastically.


  • Nigel Lowrie works at Devolver Digital, Hotline Miami's publisher.
