Ok so I got home today and was going to do a No Save run at first and hopefully manage to get through in under 5 hours, however I barely scratched 3 hours.
A good way to get this achievement (If you can bear it) is to have a stream in the background, or music, it allows you to pace how far you are into the playthrough.

So a couple of brief points as outlined above:

- Save nobody, not Barry or Chris (Or Rebecca/Jill)
- Not saving is pretty helpful, remember every second counts!
- Play through several times before, in order to learn the layout/sequence of events
- Very Easy mode, no question.
- SKIP all cutscenes.
- It's not recommended that you pause, but I did a number of times during my playthrough so you can afford the odd toilet break!

I recommend playing as Jill (More inventory and the ability to bypass Plant 42)

Synthesise the JOLT-V which saves you fighting Plant 42, this can take up to 5 minutes otherwise.

Not saving Barry or Chris allows you to bypass the Tyrant battle on the landing pad and also means you don't need to hunt MO Disks down, cutting maybe 20 minutes off your time?

Use Barry's magnum to one-shot the Tyrant and you should be in with a clear shot of grabbing this achievement.

NOTE: When carrying the explosive canister in the Laboratory, I would recommend killing the Chimera that comes for you, then grab the container and go fill it up. When you come back in you can run, but I've always found that no Chimera come for me as I go to insert the canister. Playing on Very Easy gives you a bit more time running if you do run, just be careful!

For the record, my finishing time was 2:58:24.

Hope this helps, if not please let me know - This is my first solution.

For general RE play, I followed this guide:
Kudos to IGN!

Edit: As mentioned below, playing this on Very Easy means missing out on several perks (Infinite Launcher) At the time of writing this I had finished it on Very Easy under 3 hours, the guide was based on this run and I was unaware of there even being a Rocket Launcher unlockable. With this in mind, playing on Normal is advised.
