WHAT TO DO: You must complete almost all of the Freeplay event markers located in Paris Area 1. The ambient freeplay events are marked by white dots on your mini map if you buy the map from the arms dealer. 100% of the events are not required for the achievement; there will be 1 or 2 more in each area then are required, so if one is giving you trouble (most likely it requires climbing), there isn’t harm in skipping over it.

WHERE: Paris Area 1 is generally the Northern area of Paris. It is the first section you have access to when you start the game, before you can pass the checkpoints to get to other, southern, areas of Paris.

My loadout is usually the Viper SMG and Panzerchrek. The Viper is a great all around weapon that is silenced, so you can work without alerting the enemy if you are careful. The Panzerchrek can destroy just about any event marker with a direct hit and is very useful to take something out that is out of your range. (Thanks to Stokie Stallion for this idea.)

Save often and play on Easy difficulty. If you haven’t saved recently, and you die, choose the “Return to HQ “option to keep your progress. Any time I run out of Explosives or Panzerchrek ammo, I save and kill myself to reload and grab more equipment or use the getaway car with the arms dealer to reload. The difficulty does not affect this achievement, so it is easiest to get when you set the game to Casual.

Use the lights for climbing! Many of the big buildings that have a viewpoint at the top are very difficult to climb if you do not know what to look for. There will be an area with lights along the side that create a path to the top. Many of these areas are “Under Construction” and will have scaffolding, but some will just be a series of hand-holes to climb. The Lights will look like simple lanterns with a yellow glow coming from them.

Good luck, and stay patient!
